Anybody can take over a bus, a tram or even metro car and customize it with its brand and campaign message. But not everybody can actually come up with the idea of replacing a subway train with a vintage 1920s train to recreate the mood and the atmosphere of a TV series that is set at that time. The idea is brilliant as the advertising media also becomes the “vehicle” for a consumer experience.
Yasuyuki Okamura, singer & music producer, just launched his official website in time for new album release.

Someone calls it Angry Birds Addiction Syndrome. Not sure it’s a medical pathology yet, but for sure it’s the game that changed the history of mobile gaming. A study by AYTM investigated the psychological and sociological motives behind the incredible success of Rovio’s invention.

Feel the same pressure, as you take the same kick, from the same spot, in the same conditions… LIVE!
It’s Australia and NZ only I’m afraid.
Byturen is a great campaign from the Nordics that shows, in an entertaining yet confronting way, how different you act when you are drunk. A double layered video (that activates on mouseover) is used to get the comparison as close as possible.
I missed this ad by Nike Brazil last month. The only addiction that is good for your body is running. Yes, it’s kind of controversial, but this is the Just Do It spirit, right? Photography and editing have a maniacal vibe, clearly inspired by the movie Requiem for a Dream. The atmosphere is surreal, scary yet fascinating.
