Mercedes-Benz G-Class: Origami



Don't know if you guys have already seen this ad for Mercedes done by Jung von Matt/Basis. I saw it for the first time today. I don't love the punchline "What in the world can stop a G-Class?", but the animation is quite interesting.

My Paperhouse On Fire




Fantastic stop motion animation by Sebastian Haslauer and Sebastian Koch for the phon°noir (Matthias Grübel) track "My Paperhouse On Fire".

Guerrilla football



Might this be a new viral for Nike?

Stop Motion Drums & Piano



Cool stop-motion by Lasse Gjertsen.


Thanks to Bob Ferraz

JCPenney: Speed Dressing



I read in the news that this ad by Saatchi & Saatchi NY won a Bronze Lion, however JCPenney, the client who the ad was for, didn't know about it. I think it's a beautiful ad and hope that JCPenney goes ahead with it. It would be a waste not to.

Nike: Creating Converts Is The Next Level



Another fantastic spot by 72andSunny for Nike. Full of great details. Probably the best TV ad I've seen lately.

Another weird TV advert, I'm not sure if it is old or if it's made to look old. Anyway, I'm not sure what to think of it. Let me know your thoughts on this one.

i'm talkathon



The i'm Initiative is a Microsoft program that gives part of the advertising revenue to a social cause every time you use Windows Live Messenger or Windows Live Hotmail.
Unfortunately the only ones who can participate on this initiative, are the users from the U.S.
Nevertheless, it's worth checking out, and who knows, maybe they'll make it available for the rest of us soon.

Very cool photography project, where site visitors submit their photos, one of them when they were "young" and one where they are older replicating the first one. Great idea, definitely have a look.

BPA: Toe Jam



I love this new video for The BPA (a new project by Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim).
"Toe Jam" has the collaboration of Dizzee Rascal and David Byrne, both providing the vocals for the song.
The video is directed by Keith Schofield.

BMW Gina



I find this BMW concept interesting. However, to me it looks like a Z4 which was left we a protection cover on. Maybe the people who designed it are into rubber or something. The worst for me is the way the door wrinkles when it opens. Anyway, it's worth a watch, not least for being original, and trying to break the boundaries of the norm. Let me know your thoughts.


Thanks to Pedro Cores

I am a big fan of Dom Joly's Trigger Happy TV series, so, although not as funny, I have to like these.
