Campbell Soup The Giant 32 Foot Noodle Billboard in Times Square 'Slurp' Campaign

Campbell Soup erects a giant billboard in Times Square to let the world know there are 32 feet of egg noodles in every can of chicken-noodle soup, pretty cool huh?
They make their point, compliments of the ad agency BBDO, New York, by using a chicken-noodle-soup billboard in Times Square portraying a 54-foot noodle emerging from the bowl while a mannequin in a red-and-white shirt appears to be slurping it from a window three stories above.
"We wanted to remind people how the soup they love more than any other is full of the stuff they love most," Eric Christianson, business director- Campbell's condensed soups, said in a statement. "Our TV commercial, 'Slurp,' as well as our print ads, use the billboard and giant noodle imagery to drive home the value we offer in each can. It just made sense to bring that same idea to life with a real billboard above one of the busiest intersections in the world."

Heineken "Green is the New Black" viveverde

The Brief: To create an environmental program and a tactical effort to launch. Make it attractive and relevant so the target felt compelled to get involved in the environmental movement.

The Execution: Create the Heineken Green Bag, a re-usable grocery bag made of non-recyclable discarded material from Heineken billboards. A local micro-enterprise of seamstresses crafted them. While we tackled the damaging plastic bag situation, we gave a better use to our trash and helped the micro-enterprise. The bags are being sold on, the brand's website and other boutiques.

The Result: The Heineken Green Bags became an instant environmental and fashion statement. The first batch of bags was sold out in a few days. Consumers become a walking billboard for Heineken when they shop with the bag. It's an on-going, self-sustainable project.

The Money Trail - No Matter Where It's Been They Will Do Good With Your Donation

An entertaining visual journey of a banknote. Germany's Heart's Desire Association had this ad created to express that no matter where that banknote has been, if you decide to donate it, they will do good with it.
The seedy beginnings of this commercial takes a banknote from a peeler bar, to the hands of g-string wearing dancer, a robbery, and then a drug dealer (busy commercial isn't it?) who takes his earnings to a poker game only to lose that bill to a cocaine addict who carelessly lets this adventurous banknote fly out the window of his limo, where it blows through the streets to end up at the feet of a passerby who finds it; and finally gives this banknote the happy ending it the donation box of the Heart's Desire Association. Wow, that was a mouth full...and one great ad.
Consider who this ad was created for - "Herzenswünsche e.V.Every banknote has its story. With us it has a happy ending - Hearts Desire Association - We help the ill find their hearts desire."

Volvo S60 Blind Preview Trailer with Blind Artisit Esref Armagan

Volvo invited blind artist Esref Armagan to Sweden to paint his vision of the new Volvo S60 which will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. This is a preview trailer to for the project, "Blind Preview".
The story line reads: There's more to life than a Volvo. That's why we wont show you our all-new S60. Instead, we asked an artist to show. The spot goes on to tell us a bit about the incredible Turkish born Armagan who was born blind, who promises not to look. Should be interesting to watch this campaign in the coming weeks.

Sexiness For Everyone Everywhere Liaison Dangereuse Ad with Miriam Wimmer

An absolutely brilliant new commercial/ad campaign for the German lingerie shop Liaison Dangereuse. The spot is both sexy and risky but it works beautifully. You can only hate this ad for all the wrong reasons, personally, I think this is an award winning ad and it couldn’t have been done any better, but what do I know.

Miriam Wimmer is the German model/actress in the ad and she truly is stunning. She has also modeled for famous brands such as Puma, Adidas, Polo Sport, Chio chips, Think Pink, Ralph Lauren, Rena Lange, and McDonald's.
Liaison Dangereuse is the most exclusive Online-Lingerie-Store in Germany. Their claim is "Sexiness for everyone. Everywhere." And they really mean "everyone!"

New Molson 67 “Tiny Glasses” Commercial

The new Molson's beer commercial pokes fun of men and their tiny glasses while introducing us to their newest brand 67.
UPDATE: October 30, 2009

Sorry everyone but we have been asked to remove the Molson 67 spot from the site. The issue being...actually I'd rather just quote the message we received

In Canada, our talent union will be demanding payment for those actors, since the spot was never intended for the internet. The ad agency and the client cannot afford these talent payments.
If we could afford them, we would have our own internet media placement.

What can you do immediately to take the spot off your site? It is somewhat flattering that someone somewhere feels this is a great ad, but again, the talent in the spot will deserve additional fees if it remains on your site.
I guess we have no choice but to remove it, as I'm sure there may be some legal issues and who needs that nonsense. Only in! The Great-Ads Team is going to enjoy the Friday afternoon at our local watering hole and guess what we will be having....that's right, an ice cold Labatt Blue, actually forget the Blue and give us a nice cold import instead...Heineken please!

There are no credits for the spot, they don't want us to see it.

HomeAway Gets In The SuperBowl Ad Game With Their First Ever Campaign via Publicis

HomeAway, Inc. – the world’s leading online vacation rental marketplace – today announced it will air its first ever national advertisement during the CBS television network broadcast of the Super Bowl on Feb. 7, 2010.
“Our loyal travelers already know they can get a whole house for half the cost of a hotel room when they rent vacation homes through sites like and However, consumer awareness of vacation rentals is still low, even though it’s one of the fastest growing segments of online travel,” says Brian Sharples, founder and chief executive officer of HomeAway®. “We’re going to use the Super Bowl broadcast to launch an exciting campaign highlighting the benefits of vacation rentals to reach more than 100 million people.”
HomeAway is working with its agency of record, Publicis in the West, to develop and produce the ads and related online marketing promotions.
The HomeAway Super Bowl ad kicks off the beginning of the company’s first national broad reach marketing effort. This spring HomeAway worked with Publicis to test advertising creative in select markets in preparation for the 2010 campaign.

The campaign launched at the Super Bowl will extend through next year.
“HomeAway continues to focus on offering value to owners and property managers of the more than 425,000 vacation rentals listed on our international sites, which include, and in the U.S.,” Sharples says. “This high-profile advertising is one more way that demonstrates our commitment to delivering a level of support to our customers that is unparalleled in the industry.”
Looking forward to seeing what Publicis comes up with for these spots.

Continental Airlines Sweet Ride Kommitted and Asylum Do Joint Flyover for New Spot

Continental Airlines gives us a sweet ride in their newest commercial out of the Work Hard Fly Right campaign.
Kommitted Director Nathan McGuinness just completed a close collaboration with The Kaplan Thaler Group and VFX studio Asylum to create Features, an energetic new spot for Continental Airlines. The elaborate :30 is a blend of live action and VFX footage that required a unique synthesis between the two companies in order to meet the exact vision of the agency as it develops its campaign promoting the airline's newest-in-the-industry fleet.

The spot features close-up shots of an airliner's sleek fuselage and engines, with sunlight glinting off metal as a deceptive voiceover touts aerodynamic design, fuel efficiency, and interior comfort to lead the viewer into thinking they are viewing a standard car commercial. These images alternate with lightning-quick flashes of sleek instrument panels, leather chairs, and a television monitor showing a car cruising down a winding road. Just after the ruse is revealed by the voiceover proclaiming that the vehicle can do "zero to five hundred before you even realize you're in the air," a Continental jet rockets through the clouds.

BC Dairy Foundation launches The Weak Shop

The BC Dairy Foundation launches The Weak Shop and opens the first Weak Shop store offering inventions and whimsical gadgets to those of us who are weak from not drinking our milk.

Recognizing that everyone has moments of weakness from not drinking enough milk, the BC Dairy Foundation (BCDF) is pleased to announce the arrival of The Weak Shop, a unique retail entity and sub brand. Featuring inventive products to assist those who are feeling weaker than normal, The Weak Shop recently opened its doors in Vancouver.

“The creation of The Weak Shop sub brand marks a innovative approach to milk marketing. It’s bold, quirky, and talks to teens in an unusual way,” says Liz Gurszky, director of market development and communication, BC Dairy Foundation. “Instead of preaching to teens about health benefits, we’re really driving home our point that milk gives you energy by showing the performance consequences of not drinking enough milk in an offbeat, teen-relevant way.”

BCDF, in partnership with its agency of record DDB Canada and Rob Johnston, an award-winning industrial designer, developed a range of innovative products including, Chair Pants, Food Lift, Wallet Walker and more for The Weak Shop. Now available online, The Weak Shop opened its first retail location at 1058 Granville Street in Vancouver on October 15, 2009 and will open a second location at 530 Broadway Street later this fall.

“The Weak Shop takes the existing Must Drink More Milk creative platform to a whole new level. Our goal is to make milk a more socially relevant beverage choice and encourage consumption over sugary beverage alternatives whenever teens need to perform physically, mentally or socially,” says Dean Lee, creative director, DDB Canada, Vancouver.

The Weak Shop is an inherently digital and social idea that can flow through multiple mediums in a teen’s life. To promote The Weak Shop, DDB Canada developed an integrated campaign that includes TV and online infomercials, digital pre-roll and print, online and out of home advertising. The Weak Shop also has a presence on various social media sites including Flickr and YouTube, and can also be followed on Twitter and fans can join its Facebook page.

The idea for The Weak Shop and the humorous infomercials promoting it stemmed from recent research done on the BCDF’s current “Must Drink More Milk” advertising.

The research showed that teens understand the long-term strength benefits of milk, but they don’t always grasp the short-term gain – the fact that milk gives you energy. This insight was creatively paired with a broader societal desire for short cuts, best exemplified by the explosion of gadgets and miracle tools featured in infomercials and stores.

“The Weak Shop will generate a lot of talk value among teens,” adds Lee. “It’s a creative, entertaining approach that’s completely unexpected for milk. For teens especially, it keeps milk messaging really interesting and fun.”

Additional new products, including software and iPhone applications will be available later this fall.

BCDF invites people to submit their ideas that could be developed and added to The Weak Shop catalogue. The winner of the open-source product development contest will win a MacBook Pro with Adobe creative suite and will work with an industrial designer to develop their prototype and learn first-hand about the product development cycle. Weekly and monthly prizes will also be awarded.

The proceeds of all product sales from The Weak Shop will go directly to KidSport BC, a community based sport-funding program that provides grants for children to participate in a sport.

Advertising In The Year 2010 - Cadillac aims Twitter campaign at influential women

By Stephanie Hayes, Times Staff Writer
Say you're Cadillac.
For decades, you have been the go-to ride for old men who play golf. A status symbol for grandpas.
But time passes. Women browse car lots without men telling them what to do. They care about fuel economy and the ozone and cup holders and where the soccer balls will go.
If you're Cadillac, how do you get people talking about you again?
You play fairy godmother. You find dozens of well-connected Tampa women and shower them with fresh-smelling luxury cars. You dispatch them on local roads. You ask them to blog. How does it handle in the grocery store lot? How do their kids like the leather? How does the stereo sound while cruising over the Sunshine Skyway?
You ask them to tell their friends. And you hope they hyperventilate a little when they do.

Just parked my beautiful Cadillac SRX in the parking garage to walk over to TBPAC for the Tampa Bay TweetUp hosted by Tampa Bloggers!
— From Carissa Caricato's blog.
• • •
Last week, Caricato drove her Cadillac, which she nicknamed "Big Red," to Treasure Island for sunset, to Ybor City for sushi, to South Tampa for hula hoop lessons. She drove to work and charity events and important business lunches.
"How could you possibly pass up such a fun opportunity of driving a Cadillac for free and spreading the word about it?" said Caricato, marketing director for the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay.
In an era when fewer people have the patience to sit through television ads and fewer companies have money to buy them, marketers are looking for new ways to do their jobs.

Cadillac is using Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando as guinea pigs to market its new crossover SUV, the 2010 SRX, which came out around Labor Day and costs between $34,000 and $44,000. Here's how the marketing plan works:

Each week through late November, eight women — executives, homemakers, volunteers — in the area get new Cadillac SRXs to drive. Women such as Kari Conley, community relations director for the Orlando Magic, Heidi Shimberg, vice president of marketing for the Glazer Children's Museum, recording artist September Penn, who is married to St. Petersburg Times writer Ivan Penn.

"It's absolutely new frontier," said Jennifer Costabile, regional sales and marketing manager for Cadillac. "It was exciting because it was either going to work or it wasn't going to work. The first week, we said, 'Wow, I think we've got it.' "

The women blog about what they like and what they don't (though most blogs are resoundingly enthusiastic). At the end of the week, the woman whose blog has drawn the most viewers gets $500 paid to a charity of her choice.

Caricato, 23, won the money for the Crisis Center. Through her Facebook network of 1,175 friends and Twitter network of 912 followers, she drove traffic to her Cadillac blog.

She got 771 new people reading about the car.

Jamieson's Raspberry Ale Snow White Print Ad

"Anything but sweet" reads the tag line in a new print ad campaign for Australian Jamieson Raspberry Ale. Snow White like you've never seen before, lying in bed with the seven dwarfs as our darling Snow White blows smoke rings.

The ad's creators said it was created to convince Australian drinkers the fruit-flavoured beer was "anything but sweet". But the saucy strategy, rolled out online, in liquor stores and on bar coasters, has come to the attention of the entertainment giant Disney, who licenses the animated heroine. The campaign confirmed it had "a little bit of contact" with Disney over the likeness and you guessed it, the ads have been pulled and filed in the banned, illegal, unauthorized, or whatever you want to call it ad collection. Too bad I like this and it works.

Orange Internet Words | The Power of A Word

The new Orange Internet commercial ad reminds us of the power of words and how one simple word can have two meanings. Orange is introducing its new generic Internet campaign following "livebox, allons plus loin ensemble". The campaign is based on a simple idea, which is expressed in a powerful and light hearted way: one single word can be used to cover a number of situations, from everyday scenarios to highly emotional, intense moments. The way in which words can have several meanings in life has led us to reconsider what we mean by the term "Internet". And to understand that there is Internet, and there is Internet par Orange. The "les mots" campaign uses the idea that with Orange "there is Internet and Internet", along with evidence that supports this position across all media and on several aspects of Orange Internet.

Travelers Insurance - Drifters (New Floating Umbrella Commercial)

Travelers new TV spot, featuring the music of Langhorne Slim, "Worries", shows red umbrellas drifting through the countryside and city scapes before coming together to protect the things that people care about most.
In the latest spot in the celebrated Travelers Insurance campaign, joining Rupert Sanders' Emmy nominated "Delivery" and Daniel Kleinman's charming bone-obsessed dog in "Prized Possession," comes "Drifters." Directed by Frank Budgen, the story unfolds in the skies above America, as we see thousands of small red umbrellas elegantly floating above. As we hear "Worries" from the incomparable folk star Langhorne Slim, we watch as the hypnotic flotilla moves from the ocean, over the countryside and, finally, into the skyscraper-filled canyons of a city where they gently drift down to protect a home, a car and a business.

Honda Premieres "Racing Against Time" Short-Film Documentary

Honda Premieres “Racing Against Time” Short-Film Documentary Featuring Skateboarding Legend Tony Hawk and “Star Trek” Screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Directed by Joe Berlinger with producers, “Racing Against Time” takes a personal look at what defines the essence of racing and how the best work is often done when the pressure is high and competition is fierce. The film illustrates Honda’s racing spirit, as Honda associates persevere to develop innovative environmental solutions. Teamwork also is shown as an integral contribution to extraordinary results. These themes are brought to life during the seven-minute film through personal experiences shared by professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, “Star Trek” and “Transformers” screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan. Stories from several Honda associates also are featured, including Sachito Fujimoto’s challenge to develop the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle.

“Honda’s new doc film, ‘Racing Against Time,’ was developed to share our unique corporate culture rooted in racing, and to inspire people to innovate—no matter what the circumstances,” said Barbara Ponce, Manager of Corporate Advertising for American Honda. “Honda’s racing spirit goes far beyond the race track—it’s a unique approach to business that allows us to face and survive difficulties in the marketplace, including the current environmental and economic challenges.”

“In ‘Racing Against Time,’ Joe Berlinger brings a whole new dynamic to Honda's ‘DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE’ Documentary Series. There’s a real sense of urgency to the film. The pacing, music and imagery all reflect the intensity and drive of the people we interviewed—whether it’s pro athletes, like Tony Hawk and Tony Kanaan, describing the challenges of competing against the clock or environmental experts and scientists discussing solutions for the looming deadlines that our planet will face in the near future,” said Todd Carey, associate creative director at RPA.

Estee Lauder Connects With Social Media | Free Makeover and Photo Shoots

So how does a cosmetics and fragrance giant like Estee Lauder find a way to connect to women and social media? Simple, just offer a free makeover and photo shoot that can be used on your social network page, or website. Don't look so surprised, this is actually a brilliant marketing plan now isn't it?

Jack Neff at AdAge does a much better job explaining the details, I'm heading to Bloomingdale's for my free makeover, they can keep the photo I need a makeover!
BATAVIA, Ohio ( -- The venerable Estee Lauder cosmetics brand has found a seemingly natural way to connect with social media: offering free makeovers and photo shoots at its department-store cosmetics counters coast-to-coast to produce shots women can use for their online profiles.
The promotion, which kicks off Oct. 16 at Bloomingdale's in New York and will extend initially to Macy's, Saks and other Bloomingdale's stores in Southern California, Miami and Chicago, also includes a giveaway of a 10-day supply of foundation.

Defying convention in a prestige cosmetics industry that has buried consumers under piles of makeup totes and other "gifts with purchase" for decades, no purchase is required for these gifts. The gift that the brand hopes will keep on giving is that the profile photos include the Estee Lauder logo in the background, which, assuming they aren't Photoshopped into oblivion, could give the brand lasting presence on Facebook beyond its own 27,000-member plus fan page. The promotion is being plugged on that page, as well as on Estee Lauder's website, and the company is also using PR to spread the word.

With a target age of 35 to 55, Estee Lauder consumers aren't necessarily prototypical social-media mavens. But the promotion has a dual strategy, said spokeswoman Tara Eisenberg: helping contemporize the brand for younger women while recognizing that somewhat older women have rapidly embraced social media, too.

The initial flight of a half-dozen such events is something of a test that, if successful, could be extended to more stores and cities, Ms. Eisenberg said. "It's not something you can do every day," she said, "because you do have to hire a photographer."

The photographer will do "some minor retouching," she said. "Nothing crazy, print out the picture and also e-mail it to the customer."

Purchase isn't required, but the promotion does get women to the counter to talk with reps and try makeup, a habit Estee Lauder and the prestige beauty industry, hit hard by recession, would like to help restore.

What Is A Browser | Google Creates a Cool Video Demonstration

Google has a pretty cool animated video clip explaining just what a web browser is, now I know what you might be thinking and I thought the very same thing, how can anyone in this day and age not know what a web browser'd be surprised. After you get this basic reminder of what exactly the browser is, be sure to watch the second video below of Google employee Scott, who asks New Yorkers what the difference between a search engine and web browser is.
Back in April Scott, a Google employee took to the streets of Times Square in New York and asked the question, What is a browser? The responses people came up with are priceless. You might be shocked to know that less than 8% of the people asked on this day actually knew what a browser was.

Varldens djupaste soptunna - The worlds deepest dustbin.Throwing garbage in a garbage can instead of on the ground should not reasonably be so difficult. Surprisingly, many still fail with this. Can we get more people to throw rubbish in the bin instead of on the ground by making it more fun? The result you see here.
Pianotrappan - Take the stairs.
"Take the stairs instead of escalators or elevator and feel better" is something you often hear or maybe read in Sunday attachments. Few if any people have followed this advice. Can we get more people to take the stairs over the escalator on a normal day in Stockholm, by making it more fun to take the stairs? The result you see here.
