Adidas: House Party…original get’s non-original?

The commercial is eye candy, the music is what MAKES it.  It’s also very “Sid Lee” like.  Although, it’s a bit ironic since the whole theme is originality…but the commercial itself isn’t very original..come on guys, the whole “retro” thing was played out a long time ago.  What else can you do with those millions they paid you?

Bruce Lee says – Viral iz noh dead! Heeeyaaahhh!

Client: Nokia

Bruce Lee (he’s da man!) and Nokia shows us that the almighty viral is definitely NOT dead.  Great job, too bad Nokia is going to pull out of Japan.

Agency BS coins the word: GOOCH TWAD!

So a few days ago we batted around the idea to have our own unique word.  We had a few good ideas but with a sudden flash of creativity (oh you know it!) we came up with a new word that offers that subtle but gross jab at the psyche.  Without further ado we Agency BS coins:

GOOCH TWAD!

If you don’t know what a “gooch” is – Google is your friend.

P.S.  Why the FUCK doesn’t this thing have a text size option?

Happy Turkey Day

For those in the US, give thanks for whatever you got and pray you still have it later.  I’m not a big turkey guy myself (meat tends to be a bit dry) but i will say a few cold slices of dark meat on a couple slabs of bread with some mayo, pickle, lettuce, tomato, and dijon mustard sounds great.  But yea, plenty of stuffing, mash potatoes and gravvy for me!

GET YER TURKEY ON GOOCH TWADS!

Audi: Syncronized

Saw this latest Audi commercial.  I have to say it’s quite well done, good job folks looks like you paid attention to the opening ceremony at the Beijing Olympics eh?  Couldn’t imagine having to coordinate all those people though.

Ad Agency Sex Tape = FAIL.

A few of you were wondering why we hadn’t covered the Agency Sex tape that has taken the ad (and ad blog) world by storm.  The reason is pretty simple.  We don’t want to waste our time covering some everyday occurence, and for those that actually WORK in the ad world you know what i’m talking about.  With that said:

  • did we find out for sure where/which agency this is?
  • was the girl passed out?
  • why would you have sex at 5PM in the office?  who does this?

Agency BS Coins the word…..?

George Parker over at the rank but delicious blog, AdScam, is known for his “douchenozzle” word.  I think it’s about time we got some of that action.  So what do you think?  We put our creative minds together and came up with our favorites:

Sound off bitches!

Woods Splits with GM

woods_gm1

All the media outlets are reporting that Tiger Woods has ended his his five-year, $40 million deal with GM.  While they say it has NOTHING to do with GM (and all US automakers) woes in this horrible US economy, we all know that’s a pile of stinky horse shit.  Regardless, it’s a smart move by Wood’s people, and now that I think about it – he has some really smart people working for him.  It’s not like he needs the money either, the GM deal was only a part of his $100 million in annual endorsement deals with Nike, EA Sports, American Express and Tag Heuer, among others.

It’s not likely he will fill his endorsement portfolio with another car company any time soon, Mr. Carter said. “There’s no urgency there,” Mr. Carter said. “To quickly realign with another automotive [marketer] doesn’t help his brand that much. It makes it look like he needs the money — which he doesn’t — or he wants to maintain a relationship with the industry itself, and at this point in time that’s not a priority with either side.”

I totally agree!  This Carter guy must have some ad chops because he’s totally right.  Any other car deal at this point would damage Tiger’s brand, and it’s not like he needs the money either.  Good stuff as usual Tiger, now if only EA could put out a better game for you.
