WWF Tsunami Print Ad Attacks New York 9/11

The WWF Brazil is surely going to raise some eyebrows with their newest print ad campaign titled "Tsunami". I will admit the idea is actually very good, but considering the nature of both events this might not go over to well here in North America. I agree that our planet should be protected I'm just not so sure that this was the best way to advertise it.
The tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11.
The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it. www.wwf.org

"Creation Begins"

Birth Films’s Adam Witten makes the server room sexy for this viral commercial. Originally done with Cisco in mind but they were not pleased and the logo has been removed from this version and is simply known as "Creation Begins"
New York, NY, August 31, 2008: New York based Re:Birth Films director Adam Witten launches the Cisco “Creation Begins” spec campaign, with a stylized new :60 "Creation" creative by The Cricket Club of New York. The spot, bolstering Cisco's claim that their hardware is the backbone of new creations, features Adam and Eve in the context of a server room finding a new view on an old story. The :60 is a 1-spot campaign, which also highlights Cisco's commitment to the human connection.

"Creation" opens on a seemingly sterile server room working silently. The scene cuts to a naked Adam just created on the floor. The parable continues with the servers coming to life, and Eve is born. As the computers work, even the snake is brought into being. With the scene set, within the wires and silicon, the players rush headlong to what appears to be a well known end; the expulsion of Adam and Eve. With Adam given the chance to make the same mistake twice, he decides that it is the human connection that makes creation great, not the technology that make it possible.

Cisco nixes Adam Witten’s sexy server room spec.

New York, NY, September 2, 2008: New York based Re:Birth Films newest work “Creation Begins” spec campaign, having made the jump from hugely popular to viral, has garnered the attention of Cisco Systems and has brought intense controversy. Cisco contacted Re:Birth Films on Tuesday and requested that its logo be removed. “I am as surprised as anyone,” said Adam Witten, the director of the spot, “It was never our intent to upstage Cisco - we had a great idea and felt they were a great brand to do a "test" for, if anything we should have been more clear its only a "test" - the response has actually been very positive.” The quality of the spot caused viewers to believe it was an actual commercial, and that it had been created at Cisco’s request.

Working under an unspoken agreement that brands look the other way about test work, new directors and agencies looking for a new direction regularly create edgy and unique spec work. It is used as a calling card and an exploration of new creative ideas. “Experimentation is vital to good creative,” said Roald R. van Wyk VP Creative Director at Publicis Modem. “Brands have so much to gain from test work, like Creation, it can go viral creating an exciting consumer dialog with the brand at the center. It’s worth more then almost any CPM.” When asked about the place for spec work in the industry, Jill Rothman, former Director of Production at JWT, said spec work “gives you the freedom to experiment with creative ideas.”

"Creation" the new and controversial work opens on a seemingly sterile server room working silently. The scene cuts to a naked Adam just created on the floor. The parable continues with the servers coming to life, and Eve is born. As the computers work, even the snake is brought into being. With the scene set, within the wires and silicon, the players rush headlong to what appears to be a well known end; the expulsion of Adam and Eve. With Adam given the chance to make the same mistake twice, he decides that it is the human connection that makes creation great, not the technology that make it possible.

Founded in 2002, New York based Re:Birth Films brings award-winning film making to all media platforms. Led by Adam Witten, the company’s imagery graces advertising for the likes of Scion, Geico, and Converse. Known for its holistic and nimble approach to production, the company’s off center visuals and creative have made a place for itself in the arena of new media.

The Power Of Simplicity and How To Achieve It

The power of simplicity, presentation by João Paulo Reis Alves and demonstrates why simplicity is important, how powerful it is and how it can be achieved.

The Simplicity slide is the brilliant work of João Paulo Reis Alves, send him some respect it is well deserved.

J2O Pop Stasi Advert Tainted Love Remake

J20 proudly presents Soft Cell's Tainted Love remixed by Rathergood.com for their latest advert. This is absolutely fantastic, one of the best remakes of Tainted Love I have ever heard or seen. The gentleman playing the balalaika is Bibs Ekkel, and this new band, apparently was formed just for the J20 spot is "Zouk Bizarre".
from the press release:In Communist East Germany during the Cold War, the authorities decreed a Great Talent Contest! Pop Stasi was born! Here is Tainted Love, as it was performed in that glorious setting.

We made this for J2O because they've got a mixed up session going on.

Have A Business? Be found With Google Street View

Not sure about taking the time to go to a particular store or restaurant you haven't been to before, well now you can see it with Google Street View before you go. If you are a business owner I hope you are taking advantage of Street View from Google. I find it truly amazing that so many business owners (those with an actual physical location) don't know and haven't taken advantage of Google Street View, or that they haven't harnessed the power of Google Maps for business. This my friends is why Google is what they are today.
Finding a business with Street View just got easier. See pins & info bubbles for business search results without leaving Street View. Look down the street & see nearby related businesses.

Whats Your O Face Three Olives Vodka

You may have seen the print ads, or even entered the “What’s Your O-Face” contest, and now the brand is thrilled to launch the first-ever television campaign for Three Olives Vodka.
The $10 million ad campaign is set to debut on August 31st on top cable channels including BRAVO and E!, supplemented by major online buys with TMZ and Perez Hilton.
The ads will feature the brand’s wild and surprising flavored vodka line, where viewers are introduced to a series of situations that one would expect to garner a look of shock, but instead are met with a stoic impression. That is, until the subject tastes shockingly delicious Three-O Vodka.
“The development of our new campaign was driven by research that produced two key findings: first, that consumers felt the fun had been taken out of vodka with virtually all brands scrambling for the same crowded, so-called ‘luxury’ positioning,” said Elwyn Gladstone, Vice President of Marketing at Proximo. “Secondly, the Three-O flavor range has become the benchmark amongst flavored vodkas for its wild, surprising and intense taste experience. These findings are reflected in the hilarious imagery of the new campaign, featuring a series of situations that one would expect to garner a look of shock, but instead are met with a stoic impression. That is, until the subject tastes shockingly delicious Three-O Vodka.”

The television campaign, created by Agent16, formerly Mezzina Brown & Partners, an award-winning New York-based boutique advertising agency, is the brand’s first venture into television advertising. Realized by award winning commercial director Simon Cole, the new campaign expertly depicts Three-O’s brand essence by portraying the simple idea that drinking premium vodka should be fun and exciting.

“Three Olives is the most exciting vodka brand in the market, carving out a niche from our stuffy and pretentious competitors with a single-minded message of being seriously fun,” said Gino Luci, Marketing Manager at Proximo. “We’re shaking up the category through innovation in every aspect of the brand – advertising, promotions and exciting new flavors – and the results are showing. In a market where traditional brands such as Stoli and Absolut are declining, we are seeing very high, double-digit growth. Consumers and the trade are looking for something new and fresh within the most important spirits category and Three Olives is providing just that.”

IKEA Recipes Print Ads in Typical German Percision Style

Ikea and ad agency DDB Germany create the Ikea Recipes collection of print ads. Three favorite recipes are used to promote Ikea kitchen ware. These are just brilliant thumbs up to the creatives behind these, credits below.Each of the ads includes print of a recipe and of course the Ikea products used to create the meals. My favorite of the three is Tiramisu:
1. Pour two packs of cream into a BLANDA BLANK bowl and whip them using a KONCIS balloon whisk. Add the same amount of mascarpone, mix up and put aside.
2. Thoroughly mix two full TRIVSEL kettles of espresso with half that amount of coffee liqueur into a FLÄCKIG jug using a FÖRNUFT tablespoon.
3. Dip both sides of the sponge fingers in the coffee mix. Layer into a MIXTUR serving dish, then spread half of the cream with SKRAPA rubber spatula.
4. Repeat creating a second layer. Add remainder of cream. Top off with cocoa powder using an IDEALISK flour sifter. Put in fridge for at least one hour. Serve, using a GRUNKA spoon of the 4-piece kitchen utensil set.

Brett Favre Sears Blue Crew Commercial Bloppers

Sears recently began airing the Sears Blue Electronics Crew commercial with NFL I'm retired I'm not retired Brett Favre who just retired again oh wait he hasn't decided yet. Personally I thought the Sears spot was very boring even with Favre starring in it, so rather than share the ad I came across the Blue Crew outtakes and bloppers version instead.
Exclusive behind the scenes footage as Brett Favre films a commercial with his new team, the Sears Blue Electronics Crew, seriously they really expect us to believe this? This was created using Brett specifically for it to go viral across the internet. Sorry Brett, you were a great quarterback, one of the best but this ad really, I mean really sucks....no wait it's great....uhhh, I changed my mind it sucks.

Pepsi Canada Joy It Forward Campaign

In the Great Ads inbox today comes a social media strategy that works. Pepsi Canada and Proximity Canada enjoy some well deserved success with the Pepsi Joy It Forward campaign.
As part of the digital strategy developed for Pepsi in Canada, the website http://www.joyitforward.ca/ encourages people to participate and spread the positive culture and energy of the brand online.

On the site, visitors can explore “Joy Meters” which aggregate content to measure what people are doing online to spread the feeling of joy. Some of the Joy Meters include: Mentions of Joy on Twitter; Results for Joy on Google; Joyous Word of the Day; Bundles of Joy Born today; etc. Check them out here: http://www.joyitforward.ca/joymeter/

Visitors to the site can also play simple Joy-filled games (called Joygles). Some of the games include: Bubble Blaster ; Make an Old Man Smile; Staring Contest; Dance Party Dino; and the most recently added game 3 Card Pepsi. Play them here: http://www.joyitforward.ca/joygles/

To complement the website, a Facebook Fan Page http://www.facebook.com/PepsiCanada was created as a discussion forum on all things Pepsi and a place to play the Joygles. Pepsi also created a Twitter feed http://www.twitter.com/PepsiCanada that provides a steady stream of conversation around the feeling of joy. Online media placements and domination-style ads were also part of the online digital campaign.

Within a week of the launch, the online properties received thousands of visits. Most impressive was the response to the Facebook Fan Page which has grown from an initial 300 fans to over 91,000 fans in the first 3 weeks. In one day alone, the page received over 25,000 fans. Since their creation, the Joygles have accumulated over 35,000 game plays.

Equally impressive, is that in the usually quiet world of corporate fan page Walls, Pepsi fans have been tremendously engaged with the brand with over 9000 interactions to date on the Facebook fan page.

Special thanks to Shari at BBDO/Proximity Toronto for passing the info to us at Great-Ads.

Body Heat Ad Rejected By Social Media Network

Believe it or not MySpace has decided to develop a conscious regarding what is too provocative on their site. They recently rejected this ad for a Body Heat promotion, apparently they deemed this too racy. I know I had a hard time holding in the laughter too. The contest seems pretty darn exciting if you ask, the winner will be posted on a billboard in Hollywood and nice check for $10,000, so lets get to all the entries I wanna vote for the hottest body in the world too! The Body Heat TV commercial is below.
Here's what Dot Box the digital ad agency behind the spot had to say about the ad being rejected my MySpace:
“Our “Hottest Body in the World” ad promoting Parfums de Coeur’s new Body Heat men’s fragrance is a screenshot from a 30-second TV commercial that will run on Fox TV stations and also appear on Facebook (Facebook). Nevertheless, Myspace deemed the ad “unacceptable” due to its overly explicit sexuality – and odd development considering Myspace’s less-than-prudish reputation.

Admittedly, our campaign for the Hottest Body in the World is sexy. Through social networks, we are encouraging men to submit “hot” photos of themselves to compete for the title. The winner will get their image on a prominent Hollywood billboard and $10k cash.

In the ad, you see the guy’s chest (see attached). But how many half-undressed women are all over Myspace? And what does this say about Facebook’s moral standards, or supposed lack thereof? The standards of this community are notably lax. So why call this ad out?

Myspace’s response has “family values” written all over it: “Shirtless guy ok,” they write, “shirtless guy w/ girl = maybe (bikini or underwear=no), shirtless guy w/ two females, (one of which is about to do who knows what) = not acceptable.”
Thumbs up to DotBox and the people behind this, great work, and here is the Body Heat TV Commercial promoting the HottestBodInTheWorld.com site.

Coors Light Billboard "Colder Than Most People From Toronto"

Molson Coors Canada decided to pull a B.C. billboard saying Coors Light is “colder than most people from Toronto,” after public complaints.

Ferg Devins, the brewer’s chief public affairs officer, said the company will pull about 30 billboards throughout B.C.

“We basically realize we’ve had a misfire here,” Mr. Devins said. “It was a local insight. The intention was kind of playing off an east-west rivalry, but we’re sorry because obviously we’ve offended some people.”

The ad was designed by the Toronto firm DraftFCB, which refused comment on Tuesday. The controversy erupted after Kathryn Gallagher Morton, a Newmarket woman who was upset after she and her son spotted the ad while on a camping trip in B.C., complained to a Toronto newspaper.

‘‘We actually saw the humour in it all,’’ Ms. Gallagher Morton said on Tuesday. “We just couldn’t believe that Coors thought they could acquire customers by insulting them!’’

On Tuesday, Twitter was flooded with hundreds of tweets from upset Torontonians, as well as hundreds more telling Torontonians to lighten up and not to take themselves so seriously.

Soon enough, Molson Coors Canada announced, via Twitter, that it decided to pull the ads, which are part of a Coors Light campaign that encourages people to complete the phrase “colder than...”

Adam Moffat, spokesman for Coors Light, said the campaign, in its 12th week, was scheduled to end in early September, so the beer company decided that they “just ought to pull it down now.”

As a Torontonian the Coors Light cold Toronto people billboard did not offend me, where has every ones sense of humor gone.

Meg Ryan 50 Megs of Passion For Virgin Media Ad

A new viral video advert to promote Virgin Media 50Mb broadband service Starring Meg Ryan herself, which is a follow up to the "Powerful Stuff" idea. Ad Agency Strident Productions recreated the famous ‘When Harry Met Sally’ diner orgasm scene, but with a slight twist – 50 Megs, instead of one. The video has another twist, in that all the men in the diner thought they were just extras in an advert and literally had no idea what was going on. The reactions are genuine, which seems to have given the spot a funny edge.
