This new McDonalds commercial from the US stereotypes people from the Netherlands, and their supposed paying etiquette, in order to promote their new Double Dutch burger. Even though (for me as a Dutch citizen) it’s quite an unusual and provoking approach, I still had a laugh.
Sweet via creativereview Director Chris Cairns has teamed up with Beardyman and holographic projection experts Musion to create a live performance based on his Neurosonics Audiomedical Labs film, which features a number of disembodied rapping heads…
Is seriously strong… that was fun
Due to the way that clients conduct pitches in Belgium, some of the top agencies out there (enlisted at ACC) decided to close their websites, in some sort of virtual strike; you can start reading about the reasons by clicking here. Whether if you consider that the reasons are right or not, i love the fact of the oneness coming from this action, hope it is for good, good luck!
Last weekend i received a link to this video, where somebody from supertalented KokoKaka showed how their new website for Wrangler was supposed to work, this was a hell of a teaser: Then, the site came alive on Tuesday, and i must say that is one of the most delightful experiences i’ve seen lately. A simple idea with a beautiful execution, “delightful” is the word for me, as dressing/undressing the guy to the rhythm of the music is absolutely memorable. Probably Martina has something to say related to the shopping experience (there is not) and there’s no much more than that, but having the whole video or the song for download makes me say “yay!”, it closes the whole experience and makes this jeans collection a one to remember for this year.
Absolutely moving, huge concept and simple yet brilliant making, this online ad to enforce the use of seat belt while driving is one of the most wonderful things i’ve seen in the latest times, brought in by Sussex Safer Roads Partnership. The happy consequences of using it, instead of the usual rawness showing what happens if you don’t, made my day.

Swedish magazine T-Post, distributed as a T-shirt (yes, check it out), has released an issue where the t-shirt itself becomes a “paper rock scissors” game to play against. A bit creepy, but also interesting as it keeps on unveiling new ways of interacting with physical products, as in the Adidas’ sneakers augmented reality thing. (via Tribal DDB Spain)
This is an hilarious and brilliant way to promote your beer in Argentina, by Del Campo, Nazca Saatchi and Saatchi for Andes. Any description i provide wouldn’t be worthy of the campaign itself, so check this video out to see what is it about:
