Greenpaece vs Nestle

on March 17, 2010 by Mark Comments

There’s an intresting fight going on between Greeenpeace and Nestle. Greenpeace pointed his arrows on KitKat producer Nestle today, blaming the company for using palm oil (key ingredient for products like KitKat) from producers who destroy rainforrests in Indonesia. To get massive attention, they released the KitKat style commercial below, one with a shocking twist. Nestle replied with a press release, stating it will switch palm oil suppllier, but at the same time they tried to get the commercial down from YouTube. Greenpeace is not impressed by either the press release or the copyright infrigment, and now calls for massive video uploads on any platform. To be continued..

Need a case study?

on March 10, 2010 by Mark Comments

If you’ve ever been to dig the entries of any advertising festival, you’ll realize that the last trend is doing case-studies for every single entry.

Then, the good folks at Escola Cuca (in Sao Paulo, Brazil) have released this nice video on this subject (the part of “try learning chinese” made me laugh)

Even if you don’t like the music of OK Go, you have to give them credit for the creativity of some of their videos, including the classic and iconical “Here it goes again”. These days they bring some magic again with the video for the first single (“This Too Shall Pass”) of their new record. Looks like a single-take, which is amazing, and even if it weren’t, who cares, almost a million views in three days speaks really well about it, check it out: Oh, and also featuring some making-of videos: 1, 2, 3 and 4
