ExFEARiential is hilarious

on November 7, 2013 by Mark Comments

The folk at john st in Toronto have tapped into the experiential campaigns that we have all seen and loved and taken it to an all new level. The babynapping one is the best I think. Very amusing stuff. In their own words: Give your customers an experience they’ll never, ever forget. Muggings. Riots. Babynappings. We’ll do anything to get your brand noticed. Read more…

Kittens!!

on November 4, 2013 by Ana Comments

I Can Haz UberKITTENS is a pretty amazing idea on so many levels. To celebrate National Cat Day (and to drive awareness and downloads of its app, cough cough), Uber partnered with Cheezburger site to deliver kittens to your doorstep. For 15 minutes, the kittens are yours to cuddle and play with. Then off the Uber driver goes to the next destination.

A pretty neat idea that benefits both the Uber, as it promotes its service, and for Cheezburger network, an online content platform that entered the Internet Hall of Fame for its cat memes of unlimited variety.

The promo was priced at $20 and the money was donated to NYC, SF and Seattle’s animal shelters. The kittens were also available for adoption, if you were feeling inspired.

Smart & business savvy PR stunt.

be smarter or, at least, more interesting in your online advertising

on November 3, 2013 by Ana Comments

An ad made an unexpected turn on the Wired site. It announced Wired partnering with Absolut to sponsor #TransformToday, a contest where Wired readers are invited to submit their dream text project for a chance to work on it with the “WIRED Insider.” Nothing new, surely, but what is Absolut doing there? (buying advertising, per usual). Still, brands can take cue: there are a lot of worthwhile causes and a lot of ways to make people’s lives better, and if a brand’s spending money on advertising, might as well chip in on a meaningful initiative.

Resn and Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam created the scariest HTM”Hell” 5 site on the planet for booking.com. It’s a fun adventure of the most haunted hotels they have on their books. Nice to see as you go up the stair case you parallax scroll UP not down for a change Read more…

Axe Japan has examined women’s effects towards the AXE/LYNX scent, by having them wear a device that can detect and visualise their biological reaction. Weird and very Japanese. Fun!! Ohh and it’s FLASH – been a while since we’ve seen that!! Read more…

One Hero Parallax Scrolling Cool

on October 16, 2013 by Mark Comments

Parallax scrolling sites are the new (old) cool (and very annoying sites on mobile devices) but very few actually combine the tech of px scrolling with an idea. A comic book is ripe and this site does it very well. Read more…

Keep calm and carry on phubbing

on October 14, 2013 by Jeremy Comments

Printed dictionaries are dying and we all know why. But does a modern language like English want to lose a authentic brand that helps stimulate the internet with new ideas with more credibility than twerking, vineographer or faping?

Ikea or Death?

on October 10, 2013 by Mark Comments

IKEA is that friendly shop where you get cheap furniture from the inside of a giant, unending warehouse. Black metal is the kind of music that sounds like someone screaming while trapped inside a burning church. They each possess a fervent fan base. And to tell you the truth, the names of the furniture in IKEA sound a lot like the names of black metal bands. Consider this quiz an educational way to learn the difference between the two.

Take Risks, Break Rules, & Kick Ass

on October 8, 2013 by Bridget Comments

We focus a lot on the final creative or final execution.  I thought it would be interesting to go backstage and share a talk that San-Fransicso based artist and freelance creative Ivan Cash gave at 72U (the in-agency university at 72 & Sunny). It’s a 30 minute talk but it’s worth a look if you have time.
