New Norton Anti Virus TV Ads

28 09 2010

These Norton Anti Virus tv ads are hilarious. I really like the concept of using the evil german from pop culture as virus and I love the lock up line. The voice over and the copy are also pretty spot on. Cool stuff. I’m posting three but there are more out there for you. It would be interesting to see them continuing this series using perhaps other nationalities. These tv spots come from Leo Burnett.


My Hipstamtic Prints (and I don’t care if it’s “cheating”)!

28 09 2010

So this summer I got the Hipstamatic app for my iPhone and went around Chicago using it. I fucking love it. Honest, it’s a great app. In case you don’t know it’s a photo camera app that gives a vintage look to your pictures, providing you with a vast amount of different films, lenses and flashes. Now, some may say it’s cheating. But those might be photography purists and I’m not interested in purism, nor am I trying to be a “real” photographer or else I would get me a real camera. What the Hipstamatic prints provide is instant inspiration if you deal with visual stuff. It’s really interesting to get a cool picture based on your choice of film, lens (and flash if you want) and then wait to see what you get. I’ll definitely be using it in NY. I’m posting here some that I liked the most.

Funny print ads for Benylin

28 09 2010

I thouth these were pretty funny and I like dthe art direction. It instantly reminded me of the Dick Tracey comic books that I guess I must have read and can’t quite remember doing so. Anyway, it’s simple and charming. And it’s another one coming from South Africa, a lot of good ones coming from there lately. I guess it wouldn’t be so bad to go and work there.I’m taking any offer comes my way! These were done by Volcano.

Funny ads for South Africa’s Premier Print Awards

25 09 2010

Unicorns are funny nowadays as well as a part of current pop culture again. Thank you 1980’s!  The best ad from this series has a unicorn and all the others use the same kind of humor. These four print ads are for South Africa’s “Eagle Premier Print Awards” which is an interesting award show since nowadays it’s all about being interactive and a lot of smart people say print is dying (which I really hope is not true – shhhhhh). These cool looking and funny ads are from South Africa’s King James.

The 2011 Lexus and drums

25 09 2010

I ment to post this a while ago but things been a little crazy and I’ve been a little lazy. I thought this Lexus ad was pretty cool, I’m not into cars but I’m certainly into drums. I feel like lately some car ads have been trying to brake away from the classic formulaic car ads that we are so used to.The people from Team One did a good job with this one.

Smart ads for gay rights

3 09 2010

I found this idea to be smart by using an old trick like the genealogical tree. It’s touching and it gets the idea across pretty fast.

Clever ads for FIAT GPS

2 09 2010

I found these ads to be really clever by concentrating on specific and small spots of the flags like routes. It ties in well with their line. It’s pretty simple and smart, and it comes from the french agency Marcel.
