Kodak: Just When You Thought It Was Dead (0)

Thursday, November 02, 2006 by , under , , , , ,

Funny, creepy, surprising, revolting, joyful, sad, laugh-out-loud, laugh a little, or not at all --Kodak will always suprise us with a spectrum of emotions, both with their cameras and with their ads. From Ogilvy and Mather, Malaysia. (Thanks, AdsOfTheWorld!)

Thailand GPR Dept: Reading (0)

Thursday, November 02, 2006 by , under , , , , ,

Funny campaign for the Thailand Government Public Relations Department by agency Creative Juice Bangkok, to encourage reading among the Thai population (and the world, which might be in even greater need). (Thanks, TwentyFour!)

If I had to be nitpicky, I'd say I'm not sure about the "s" on the "Firms Up Your Brain" copy - you'd think the action shown firms up your brain, and not reading itself - honestly, I only got the joke once I looked at the "kid on the tree" execution. Maybe the art direction on the first two is a bit challenging to deconstruct. Just "Firm Up Your Brain" would've been better, I say.

But hey, maybe I should just read more.

PS3: Baby (0)

Thursday, November 02, 2006 by , under , , , , , , ,

Holy smokes! This is machiavelously creepy. The art director in me loves the strange flavor in the film direction (assumed by Rupert Sanders of MJZ production house in L.A.), yet I cannot help but create a few parallels of freudian dysfunctionality. But by now, we all know that PlayStation ads are known to evoke dysfunctionality in all spheres of human emotions, to demonstrate how we just can't control our playing obsession. From a very young age.

As I'm writing this, my behavioral psychologist is sitting next to me, taking notes with a grave expression on his face.

PS3: BluRay Commercial (0)

Thursday, November 02, 2006 by , under , , , , , , , , ,

While I'm at it, here's another PS3 commercial - this time, explaining what the new implementation of the BluRay technology inside the Ps3 means exactly. Agency: TBWA/Chiat/Day. I for one, was curious to see if it'd be worth the 600$ launch price, available to my quite scared wallet starting Nov. 17.


I am not a Sony fanboy. I am an advertiser.

Levis: RedLoop (0)

Carbon-copy-flavored original art direction for Levis' redloop collection. The copy reads: "Super pressed". You might also want to check out the Indian redloop website (last year's news, though) here. From JWT India. (Thanks, Creative Criminal!)

VW Touareg: The Jungle Is Here (0)

Thursday, November 02, 2006 by , under , , , , , , , ,

You have to dig the art direction on these posters for the VW Touareg SUV. I thoroughly enjoy seeing agencies going the originality mile in art direction for car ads. I'm also rejoicing when the copy is spot on, considering the Touareg is both for city and outdoor purposes (and that sometimes, both are mixing up at 8am in the morning on the way to the office). Unless I'm wrong, Crispin Porter + Bogusky came up with these. (Thanks, Creative Criminal!)
