Spoofing the spoof

Before you decide to click away this commercial because it looks like just another ‘Hitler-finds-out’ spoof (taken from Der Untergang), don’t! If only to watch how well this film, promoting the “Love and Anarchy” film festival in Finland, is executed. But what I really like about it is how it borrows from popular culture and sparks discussion by attacking a taboo. So, here we go: Our… More.

Your body is your best outfit

With the pay-off “Your body is your best outfit” the Belgium gym chain Jims wants to tell us that we should enjoy fitness. We don’t have to add much commentary, cause what you see is pretty much what you get – though we don’t think they do body paint at Jims. Interesting detail; the man… More.

Killer concept

Killing two birds with one stone. That’s what this new platform – “Sell an unemployed” – does (in Dutch). It is an initiative by the ACC, the Belgium Association of Communication Companies, to persuade text writers to become a copywriter in advertising – there always seems to be a shortage. That’s the first bird. Since… More.

The Universal Typeface

For ballpoint brand BIC keyboards and voice recognition must sound like digital photography to Kodak when it saw the sales of analogue film plummet. With this new website, created by DDB Düsseldorf and MediaMonks, however, BIC seems to be alive and kicking in our digital world. The ballpoint brand is crowdsourcing the “Universal Typeface” by… More.

Straight. Unbiased.

With the World Cup being only a week away, you can’t have missed that every other brand is heavily gearing up for the event. The UK’s national press is no exception and naturally they all focus on their coverage of the British team. The Guardian, however, sees things differently – click here to see full ad.… More.

Donating hope

In this campaign for the German Red Cross, some of the most famous football players from the Bundesliga donated blood to sick children and simultaneously the fighting spirit to get better. On the labels of the blood bags the young patients could see which of their football idols helped them win their fight. Of course the… More.
