Stinking Try Hards

social media dbagAxe, the bane of my olfactory sense’s existence, has released a new campaign from Barton F. Graff 9000 introducing their Social Effort Scale. It ranks the amount of effort you put into social media.

Why?

Because apparently women like guys who use social media effortlessly.

Here, watch this video:

So if you’re overusing hashtags, taking too many selfies, and God forbid, showing your duck face to the world, you, sir are trying too hard. Want to know your score? Go to SocialEffortScale.com (I’m +147).

Rainbow Butts

The floodgates have opened. Advertisers have been posting their Super Bowl ads well in advance of the big game. And true to form, Volkswagen releases another great ad. Mind you it’s not as great as the Darth Vader ad from 2012, but any time you can work rainbows shooting out of people’s butts, you get my vote.

No More Internet For Me Today…

Poopy-Cat-02‘Poopy Cat’ is a disposable, biodegradable litter box that can be delivered right to your door – provided you live in the Netherlands.

But that’s not important.

What’s important is this video created by TBWA to sell the product. I don’t even have a cat, and I live in Canada… but I almost ordered one just because of this video.

Swedish Sweeties

snask

SNASK is a Swedish design agency specializing in branding and film. They recently created a brilliant campaign to talk to Swedes about saving energy and water. Here is one of the videos from that campaign – it’s funny, whimsical, and looks very Wes Anderson (think The Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, and Moonrise Kingdom).

Here’s a link to the campaign site.

AND while researching their work, I also came across a spot they did to promote Creative Mornings, a breakfast lecture series for creative people like you and I! If you’ve never been, you should look it up and see if there’s one in your city. I’ve been to a couple here in Vancouver and have never been disappointed.

Plus how can you hate on a guy who showers in a tomato costume?
