In their continuing efforts to battle the ever growing mounds of garbage polluting our oceans and coastlines, Surfrider Foundation joined forces with Saatchi & Saatchi LA to sponsor the aptly titled Catch of the Day guerrilla ad campaign. Trash was collected from beaches across the US, then sorted, packaged like seafood, and strategically placed around local farmers’ markets. Directly targeting seafood consumers, this creative campaign draws attention to the gross debris littering our oceans and highlights how this pollution affects the consumer directly through the food they eat. Even if you’re not partial to seafood, its hard to miss the message!
This was one of my favorite ads from last night’s Superbowl. Career Builders, “Do you need a new job…” This is the only ad that really stuck out to me, they actually punch small animals! If there are others that you all dug, please let us know.
If you’re in a band and like trucks, trailers, guitars, and gear, you probably want to enter Fender’s Road Worn competition. To help promote their new line of Road Worn Guitars and Basses (the music equivalent of pre-distressed jeans) Fender is giving away a Toyota Tundra with a customized trailer by Studio No. 1 that is filled with equipment. You can see the customization process above and more details on the contest here.
A Dutch S & M magazine enlisted the help of an Ad Agency for a really creative execution. I wonder if I could enlist an agency to create a four-finger ring that read ‘idiot’ and then get them to punch a bunch of people in the forehead?
I drink at this bar Kelly’s from time to time. I have been run out of there once, something about me calling this lunatic lady crazy. Needless to say, she doesn’t work there anymore, so no worries. It is in the East Village and offers the basics, which is all you really need in life.
I thought King of the Hill was cancelled? If it was then this promotion constructed on Houston and Lafayette is a bit strange. Nontheless, it is really creative, from the fence and the beer cans to the fake grass. Check the photo below to get a sense of scale.
Check out this collection of NYC commercials from 1985 including ads for 1010 WINS, New York Telephone (a Nynex Company), Lafayette Circuit City, and a movie ad for “Silk Stockings” voiced by longtime Channel 5 announcer Ed Ladd.
As Mike Muir would say, “all I wanted was a Pepsi , and she just wouldn’t give it to me…” BBDO Dusseldorf created the one calorie PepsiMax suicide campaign that seems to be causing some problems. I am not sure why… more images after the jump. Check out the full story here.
Australia beer company Toohey‘s has a pretty cool promotion based on the 6 degree’s of seperation. “Everybody is connected to everybody else by no more than six personal contacts. But is it only a theory? tooheys Extra Dry is creating a TV show to find out.”
So you need to send in a video of who you want to meet, they will give you a 6 pack some cash and a camera crew, you set off to meet 5 people who will lead you to the 6th person the one you want to meet. It sounds like it is a pretty cool concept lets see if they can pull it off. If it was done in the US, I think it would involve dancing.
Check out the promo video on their site. At least they are planing on introducing you to cool people. Artist, designers, musicians.
