Great numbers



This is a great set of numbers. And well worth sharing with any marketer you know who's a tad overly focussed on the lure of digital.

Boys and their toys

This is one of those 'don't make ads like this anymore' ads.

Give the pic a click for a better look at the copy.

And while you're doing that pay particular attention to the woman's hand on the handbrake.

Gulp...

Turn it up!

I very much doubt anyone drinks more than usual just because they have been exposed to loud music. But what the heck. This is a cute promo idea for music festivals by Tuborg Brewery.

Neymar, Serena & Omar



Gorgeous piece of film making for Beats headphones. If only they sounded as amazing as their ads look.

Bloody banner ads

Smartarse agency creative convinces client to run what looks to me like a scam ad.

And just like a real banner ad people ignore it and nobody clicks on it.

Months later agency enters it into award shows.

And I think you know how this story ends...

No more dick picks



This looks like a piss take but it's not. It's a real ad for a real candidate. And I'd definitely vote for her if I lived in her electorate.

I love gingers

Spotify is ending the year with a fun '2018 Goals' outdoor campaign. To be honest I don't think it's as strong as the campaign they ran earlier this year. But I do think this Ed Sheeran poster is an absolute cracker.

Two screens - One cat



Yet another ad with a cat. And yet another blog post about an ad with a cat.

Borrowed interest? Perhaps. But still fun.

But I have to say I can't understand why anyone would need a mobile phone with two screens.

Copy gets Glossier

Three statements of two words.

So simple. So strong. And I like to hope so effective.

Great tone-of-voice for beauty brand Glossier.
