Here’s yet another brand building spot for GE.

In this spot entitled ‘Ideas Are Scary’, we follow the journeys of a down-and-out muppet. His path leads him to GE, where he finds all the love and support from the┬ámultinational conglomerate corporation to blossom into a not-so-hideous muppet.

This will cost you

This ad for PayPal is called “Voices”.

It should be called “Torture”.

I made it through 40 seconds and had to stop.

Watching this made me feel like I rode the Gravitron 20 times in a row. Directly after winning a hot dog eating contest. With a bad flu. In uncomfortable shoes. You get the point.

See how much you can handle. I take no responsibility for nausea or seizures.

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.

Label Me in Love

I think my passion for office supplies came about from of my years working in ad agencies where they guard the them like the Crown Jewels. One of my favorite items – which I could only use if I had a really good reason, with strict supervision – was the label maker. The glorious label maker. They will always have a special place in my heart. It was a special day when I got to use the label maker.
Which brings us to today’s ad. Brother Labels just put out this funny commercial entitled “Next Time Label It”.

Meanwhile, in Japan

Pepsi wants Japan to know; when you’re starving, to the point of hallucination, go get a hot dog – not a Pepsi – because “Life is Eating”.

You can’t make this shit up.
