Fox Crime: Scubs

Here’s a funny campaign for Fox. To promote their crime-channel, they’ve came up with this crazy idea. They built a few dummies and put it into a bag, tied it with chains, made it “wear” a pair of shoes made of cement, and threw it overboard from a small boat. Crime scenes were popular diving areas, so that reactions from the media and divers wouldn’t take very long to come along.

Bud Light: Write-on Label

For a limited time, Bud Light is pimping a new label that lets you write on your bottle with a key, coin or any pointy thing. That way people will know which beer is theirs, but also write down the number of a hot chick.. Not a big campaign, but one of the best ideas lately from a beer brand!


‘Being Henry’: An Interactive Film By Range Rover

We’ve seen it before; interactive youtube-movies where the viewer could make choices himself of how the storyline would end. Examples are, Tippex, Sexual Health and Hell Pizza. But this mini-site from Range Rover is far better. With 9 different storylines and 32 ending scenes, the jeep-brand went a step further! Click here to try it out

Save your reputation on Facebook,
wear the blurring t-shirt

New week, new cool student project to share. This time the idea comes from Holland and the creatives behind are Nanette Visser & Nik Sluijs. Again, social media is somehow involved in the project. It's not about Facebook but rather about Hyves, the most popular social network in The Netherlands. You know when you go out with your friends and you have fun? I mean you have a lot of fun… maybe you drink a few drinks and then a couple more and then someone takes a picture of you doing something crazy. And the day after that picture gets uploaded on Hyves and your family, your girlfriend and maybe even your coworkers see it. And your reputation is gone forever.

Well, the good news is that you can keep having fun, and your friends can keep taking photo of you. Only, when they'll upload the photo online, you face will not come out. Just a bunch of blurred pixels. You just need to wear the right t-shirt, the Beachmasters Blurshirt! And your reputation will be safe.


Interbest Male Stripper

Dutch outdoor advertising company Interbest used a male stripper to build awareness of their billboard visibility in a campaign that has won Gold at the 2011 Clio Awards. The campaign involved a progression of billboards each showing the overweight man in fewer clothes. The text: “The sooner you advertise here, the better”. Finally, just in time, the billboard is taken up with an advertisement for Radio 2. The campaign is a development of an earlier series of billboards which won a Silver Outdoor Lion at Cannes in 2010.


Five Design Demigods On Overcoming Failure

Students from Berghs School of Communication in Sweden have whipped up a series of must-see videos for any designer who’s ever felt a glimmer of self-doubt (which is to say, of course, all designers who aren't Philippe Starck).

If features some of the top creative minds of the day, including Stefan Sagmeister, Wally Olins, Michael Wolff, and graphic-design éminence grise Milton Glaser, on surmounting the fear of failure. “Fear of failure is the biggest mind fuck you’ll ever encounter in life,” the students, who assembled the project for their graduation exhibit, write online. “When you overcome it, you can overcome anything.”

There’s lots of good stuff in the films, and luckily, it extends beyond bromides on how to grow a spine, though there is plenty of that. Sagmeister: “It is very important to embrace failure.” Gasp! Revelation! No way!

Oh, we're just being jerks. Truth is, even obvious advice from incredibly talented people sounds somehow brilliant. So without further ado, we'll let the designers take it away. A final word: Make sure to watch all seven and a half minutes of the Glaser interview. His message isn’t terribly different from Sagmeister’s, but his delivery is effing gold -- like a guy patting you on the back and giving you a big kick in the pants at the same time.

OCD Foundation: Shortest Ad

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an illness that causes people to have unwanted thoughts and to repeat certain behaviors (compulsions) over and over again. That makes simple actions very difficult for people with this ilness. McCann Erickson, Tel Aviv therefore made the shortest ad (1-second!) ever, to make people aware of this disease.


Electromagnetic Floating Ball-Pit Balls

This is a fake-ass video of a whole bunch of those Chuck E Cheese ball pit balls allegedly floating around in mid-air thanks to a giant electromagnetic and some iffy electronics stuffed inside each one. You can send it to your friends telling them it's real if you want, but it's not. It's really just an exercise in motion graphics for some film festival. Still, if you really want to believe they actually did it, you can, I'm just going to think less of you because of it.


Jechange.fr: Dad

All the parents will one day get the question how they met, but this mother isn’t telling the romantic story to her daughter. Instead she is telling her the plain truth. Accompanied with the slogan “it’s always worth shopping around” it appears to be an advert for a website to compare insurances.

Taras Lesko is an artist who’s extremely handy with paper. Audi asked him whether he could make an Audi A7 completely out of paper. It took him 285 sheets of paper (which are transformed into 750 different parts) and 245 hours. The result is amazing..

Pop that Balloon! MTV Brazil: Stop motion balloons

This is an impressive stop motion video for MTV Brazil. Unlike many other stop-motion ideas, these are not drawings on papers nor pictures, but drawings on balloons. The balloons were set onto a 200 meter long rail and to achieve a moving picture effect, 10 balloons had to be popped per second, which are 600 balloons per minute.

Noah: Chicken-vending machine

In the middle of Frankfurt, pedestrians could spectate a rather unusual vending machine. The machine was filled with 16 living chickens, who would lay fresh eggs for those who wanted. At least, that’s what they thought.. They were confronted with the following message: “68% of all the chickens in the world are treated like egg-laying machines”. At the same time, they were requested to only buy eggs from ethical egg farming.

Seat Belt Awareness: Osama Bin Laden

Even if he’s dead, Osama Bin Laden is still a hot topic amongst advertisers. We have no clue whether this video is official, but it’s hilarious. It always important to wear a seatbelt, no matter who you are, and in which condition you find yourself in..
