It goes like this: a girl realizes her family, who back in 2008 were so involved in political campaigning, seems to have become a bit lazy about the whole thing this year. So Jackson steps in to help her convince these guys to get out and do something. "Sorry my friend, but there's no time to snore. An out-of-touch millionaire has just declared war. On schools, the environment, unions, fair pay. We're all on our own if Romney has his way. And he's against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck. So I strongly suggest that you wake the f*ck up."

2012 Toyota Tacoma | Wacky Girlfriend Cliff Jump Ad

The Toyota Tacoma has earned quite a reputation among pickup trucks, which is quite a feat in a market that has been traditionally dominated by American brands like Ford, GMC, Dodge, and Chevrolet. And because competition is stiff in the segment, manufacturers often craft ads trying to convince consumers that their truck as the strongest and most durable currently available. While they all use words like “tough” and “rugged” to describe their vehicles, Toyota goes that extra mile in their most recent Tacoma commercial to bring those words to life. The ad provides a humorous twist to the theme of durability in what is sure to be one of the most memorable automobile commercials of the year.

Set on a beach below a steep and rocky cliff, the commercial’s opening shot is of four young adults taking a joyride through the sand. Made to appear as if viewers are witnessing a home video, the truck’s passengers hoot and holler while their Tacoma kicks sand high into the air. The scene abrubtly ends as if someone began taping over the home video and cuts to a young woman, presumably the truck owner’s girlfriend, who begins to air her frustrations about “Mike” and his “precious four-by-four, hang-out-all-day with your stupid friends truck.”

She continues her rant making fun of Mike for describing the truck as “totally sick,” and her extreme jealousy is more than apparent to viewers. It immediately becomes clear she is going to teach Mike a lesson by showing him what she really thinks of his Tacoma. At this point, viewers are sympathizing with the young woman and probably thinking of their own significant others’ prized possessions. This sympathy turns to shock, however, when at the end of the girlfriend’s rant, she turns away from the camera towards the top of the cliff and yells “push it!”

The 2012 Tacoma bounces and flips over boulders and outcroppings, at one point somersaulting repeatedly down the hill, and the whole time the girlfriend is wildly screaming her approval. A few seconds later, when the truck makes it to the bottom of the hill, it miraculously lands right side up and seems undamaged by its rocky decent. The girlfriend screams “Noooo!” and the commercial ends with these words on the screen, “Tacoma Double Cab: Toyota Get the Feeling.”

Obviously the commercial is a hyperbole, no pickup truck would survive such a fall unscathed. However, with it’s comedic exaggeration, Toyota has created a vivid image in the mind of the consumer. The message that the Tacoma is the toughest, most durable truck available comes across loud and clear.

Serving Panda Meat To Save The Bluefin Tuna PSA Campaign

The problem: the bluefin tuna ought to be on the endangered list. It's not, because Japan and China have bribes to keep it off that list. If asians don't take bluefin off the menu, it's likely to go extinct pretty soon.

Our solution: we wanted people to realize that eating bluefin tuna is like eating panda. We offered panda meat for sale online ( and through sampling booths set up in supermatkets, street markets and travel fairs.

The response: "You sick bastards." "How could you kill pandas?" and "I'm calling the police." were the most common initial reactions. But once we pointes out the double standards, it was "really? I didn't know." and "I'll never eat bluefin again." 171,467 people pledged to give up eating bluefin. Needless to say, no pandas were harmed in the experiment.

Meet Norman. He's not your everyday house cat. Little by little he's helping to save our oceans.

There is an urgent need and opportunity for Canada to meet the increasing national and international demand for sustainable seafood products, while changing the way we fish. It’s time for a new sustainable vision on how to steward and protect our oceans, and the wildlife that inhabit them.

Some Canadians might not know how
important it is to choose sustainable seafood. But WWF-Canada has found
someone who does: Norman the Eco-warrior cat.
Norman and WWF-Canada have teamed up to promote Loblaw Companies
Limited’s commitment to sustainably source 100% of seafood sold in its retail
locations by the end of 2013.
Why use a cat?
“The idea that even the fish in cat food will be sustainable is a great way to
communicate the scope of the commitment,” said Stephen Jurisic, Co-
Creative Director at john st. “And who cares more about fish than a cat?”
“Canadians want sustainable seafood options, and we’re proud that Loblaw, a longtime
WWF partner, is making it easily available across the country,” said Hadley
Archer, Vice-President of Strategic Partnerships, WWF-Canada. “We hope that
Norman will encourage Canadian consumers to choose sustainably-sourced seafood
at their local grocery store, thanks to Loblaw’s world-leading commitment.”
The campaign’s centerpiece is a short online documentary that chronicles Norman’s
commitment to living a more sustainable life – one that includes upcycling, energy
and water conservation and in-home garbage sorting programs.
The film will be promoted through social media channels and leveraging WWF’s
passionate fans and followers. You can watch it on WWF-Canada’s facebook page: “The internet is pretty big on cats, “ says
Jurisic, “if this gets half the love Ninja Kitty got, we’d be very very happy.”

John Lewis Never Knowingly Undersold "The Other Half" Advert 2012

The newest TV advert for John Lewis Never Knowingly Undersold entitled "The Other Half"

The advert is the story of two people falling in love. On the left side of the screen we see the girl's side of the story. She lives in 1925, the year that John Lewis made its life long commitment to Never Knowingly Undersold. On the right side of the screen we see the boy's side of the story. He lives in the present day.

By bringing their two worlds together as one, we show that falling in love, and embarking on a relationship, is a universal story which will keep being replayed throughout time. While many aspects of our lives today are very different to almost a century ago, the really important things haven't changed at all.

The music in the commercial is a cover of the INXS song, Never Tear Us Apart done by Paloma Faith. If anyone knows who the actor and actress are in the ad please do let us know.

Our vibrant eBay colors and touching letters represent our connected and diverse eBay community – more than 100 million active users and 25 million sellers globally and growing.

The eBay logo is known the world over, so changing it was not a decision made lightly. The time felt right. We’re incredibly proud of how eBay started and quickly grew into the world’s largest online marketplace. Auction-style listings, used goods, vintage items and quirky, one-of-a-kind finds are still a big part of what makes buying and selling on eBay special. We hope that’s always true. But we’ve evolved a lot in the past few years, and eBay is much more than auction-style listings today."

Lil Lets "Giggle" and "Horny" Print Ads

As part of a brand re-launch, Lil-Lets has created a new campaign aimed at encouraging women to embrace their femininity.

Women’s bodies work in amazing ways and Lil-Lets knows why women feel the way they do during their cycle. The new campaign positively embraces this knowledge and shares it with an unexpected edge that may surprise women themselves.

Using striking headlines and intriguing insights including ‘HORNY’ which reveals that “if your period makes you feel a bit horny, it’s because your body knows an orgasm is one of the best, natural ways to ease the discomfort of cramps”, the campaign hopes to connect with today’s woman and recruit a new younger generation to the brand, as well as appealing to loyalists.

The press campaign will appear in women’s monthlies and weeklies. The digital campaign features True and False questions linking to an interactive Body iQ quiz that tests the nation’s knowledge of how the body works, including everything from orgasms to the shopping gene.

Clodagh Ward, Director of Marketing at Lil-Lets, said; “At Lil-Lets we are passionate about celebrating femininity and all there is to love about being a woman. The campaign devised by Leagas Delaney brings this vision to life and underpins what we are all about – we know that periods are a natural part of a woman’s life and we are in tune with how it makes you feel.”

Nigel Roberts, Creative Director at Leagas Delaney, said; “We wanted to create a campaign that was different to the category. Candid references to why your body works the way it does during your period has grown-up honesty to it.”

The press ads will feature new packaging and highlight key products outside of their heritage in tampons, including applicator tampons and towels.

Official Trailer for the Apple iPhone 5 in HD

So here ya go, the official Apple iPhone 5 promo trailer. I couldn't help but laugh when I read in one of their releases that Apple believes and I quote:
"iPhone 5 is made with a level of precision you'd expect from a finely crafted watch -- not a smartphone."
I don't think so.
This is the iPhone 5...

This is a finely crafted watch...
