I'm back! Last week was way too hectic for posting, so sorry if you guys missed AdKrispies.

Let's start with fun stuff from the folks at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners San Francisco, for Specialized Bikes. The animation was produced by Blind Studios in Hollywood. (Thanks, AdCritic!)

Japanese Asics Gel commercial, parodying their funkylicious late night /early morning tv shows. I just love the exuberant happiness in there. Flavourful. Chewy.

Here's a short movie presenting the last moments before an entire building explodes in pure color - a little teaser for the upcoming sequel ad from Sony Bravia (following the world-famous Frisco Bouncing Balls ad). Pure bliss. Enjoy.

Leica: Get Closer (0)

An ultra-clever billboard for Leica Ultravid binoculars. (The copy says: "Get Close. With the Ultravid from Leica"). Does anybody know which agency did this ? (Thanks, c00lz0r!)

The "Back To The Future" you'll never see (2)

Tuesday, August 01, 2006 by , under


I was somehow surprised to learn that the original "Back To The Future" movie was almost entirely shot featuring Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly. Almost entirely. Unfortunately (or fortunately), Stoltz sucked major ostrich eggs in portraying a teenager. In the final weeks of filming, the producers had him replaced by Michael J. Fox, and had the entire movie re-shot. Wow. (Thanks, digg!)

Check out this link to see the set pictures (unfortunately, no movies).
