I don’t know exactly what’s the purpose of this machine, but it’s a one to talk about. You enter a coin and you get more money than the one you entered, so you can say that this machine sells money. And there are huge lines of people waiting to use their turn: Guess it’s some kind of teaser for something, and a hell of a good one, you can find further info in this blog.

We’ve talked about Orange UK’s The Feed before, and now they’re coming up with a new (and funny) one because of the Royal Wedding next Friday, inviting people to tell about a special un-royal moment they’d like to remember with a very own illustrated commemorative plate.

The agency is JWT Mexico.

That’s the story of Mr. Mistu, who ran out of olives for his pizza and decided to go on a journey around the world guided by his guide dog Galdo.

Lucas Jatoba spent the last three years living in Barcelona and wanted to do something special to bid the city farewell. The young Brazilian did not want to leave without thanking everyone for the many wonderful experiences he had enjoyed there, so he prepared a special parting gift. Lucas set free half a dozen balloons with theatre tickets, filmed the moment and shared the clip with his friends. When the travel and leisure agency Atrapalo and DoubleYou -its agency- came across the video, they offered to give Lucas a hand, shooting the video again. This time, however, there were hundreds of balloons and tickets so Lucas could share his farewell with people across the entire city, and the result is this beautiful video:
