Let them eat cake

Over the years I have seen some pretty creative outdoor advertising. Like the billboard made out of cheese, crying billboards, a billboard that smells like steak… very creative and off the wall ideas. But this one… I’m going to say it… takes the cake.

This billboard, created by Michelle Wibowo of Michelle Sugar Art, is made from 13,360 Mr Kipling cakes. The whole thing took 6 hours to assemble. No word on how long it took for the public – and their filthy mitts – to disassemble it.

JDate

Terri & Sandy, USA created some ads for JDate, and SoulPancake did the production. This first one, ‘Jewish Parents’ is the best of three.

These two, not as funny.

Flight of the Stories

Here’s a highly creative, beautiful spot for the London War Museum, by agency Johnny Fearless in the UK. (Great name.)

Sex on Credit?

This funny animated spot is by agency Herezie, Paris for Confidis, a financial services company that’s trying to get you to change your perceptions about credit – just as we should change our perceptions on how men only think about sex.

It’s a tough one to connect – and I’m not sure the brand will be memorable, but this is amusing as hell. Enjoy!

Suicide

This ad for Detroit’s Portfolio Night is totally worth the watch. A fun and smart spot created by Doner, USA.

We’ve always been a Helvetica family.

Try the Octopus

Happy Monday! I’m still in the UK. We’re not flying home until Thursday evening and I arrive back in Vancouver on Thursday afternoon. (I’m a time traveller!) So posts are still going to be erratic/sporadic/nomadic…all this week.

Moving on, here’s a print ad from Ogilvy & Mather, Costa Rica for a breath spray called Menta. This is as impressive and funny as it is disgusting.

(And just a note, an octopus’ mouth isn’t located there… but the ad might raise an eyebrow if it was physiologically accurate.)

Quite the Catch

Tomorrow is Good Friday. It is a holiday, so I won’t be posting anything. I’ll probably be dealing with a hangover instead. And then on Monday, I’m heading to Brighton and London for two weeks, so my posting my be a tad sporadic in the upcoming weeks. Not that anyone will even notice. So this was pretty much a waste of a paragraph, but whatever.

On to today’s ad!

This spot is for the company called Followfish. It was done by Leagas Delaney in Hamburg, Germany and it illustrates Followfish’s sustainable fishing practices… compared to the ‘other guys’.

No One Sees it Like You

A really nice ad for Canon by Leo Burnett, Sydney.

Although I did feel compelled to blink a little more than usual while watching this…
