Funny how flowers do that

Wow, this made our day! And we just have to copy the copy to express our feelings: “Funny how flowers do that.” We’re not sure whether the young, talented Dutch director Basha de Bruijn will allow us to say this, but it’s like looking at a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film (responsible for, among other films, “Amélie”). But no… More.

Sound Bench

The Metropole Orchestra, together with Y&R, have spread 12 sound benches throughout the Netherlands (you can find the locations here) to promote their ‘wilderness’ tour; a life performance at 10 cinemas synchronous with the film ‘The New Wilderness’. This film quite beautifully shows a Dutch nature reserve, with quite a few wild animals, only 30 Km away from… More.

In the pocket plus

Last week the new iPhone was introduced in the Netherlands. Since there’s not much to say about the iPhone 6, except that it now finally has the same size as the Samsung Galaxy, we were quite surprised that people were still waiting in line. Anyway, since the iPhone 6+ can almost shake hands with the mini iPad, mobile… More.

Hyper realistic curved screen

Just when we thought the TV screens were sitting nice and flat against our walls, the industry introduces curved screens – fuckers. So, Samsung advertises its brand new curved TV; “Curved UHD TV” – through a customized spectacular! And apparently it has a very realistic screen. How to advertise very realistic? That’s right. Created by Saatchi… More.

Tossing Royal Dwarves

We’re pretty sure that the RVD (Royal Propaganda Service) will not be amused by this ad. After all, tossing princesses is definitely not something to be promoted. Then again, if your name is Kingsday and you’ve watched the Wolf of Wall Street a few too many times, this just might be the perfect activity on… More.

In case of love at first sight

“…Break glass plastic” Simple but sweet, this Valentine’s guerrilla campaign by Kingsday for the Flower Council of Holland. That’s how we like advertising. We first wondered why they would want to use an English URL (funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk) in France, but the 1500 emergency roses spread through Paris actually carried the URL Lajoiedesfleurs.fr – and the text… More.

Follow Your Heart

A few months ago we wrote about Kokoro winning the new kid on the block award. The prize: free outdoor space galore to adorn with whatever you like. Kokoro chose to invite designers from all over the place to make their own interpretation of Follow Your Heart – using the silhouette of Kokoro’s logo. A… More.

All about the colours

This installation, at the famous fashion house Colette in Paris, was created by Random Studio to promote the new Nike Fuelband SE (according to Gizmodo the SE is merely an iteration and doesn’t offer much more than “a splash of color on the band”). The “RGB LED infinity tunnel,” showing colourful animated light patterns, was… More.
