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”.

The Worms Crawl In…

So this is an ad by JWT Sydney. I think this is medication for children. I think I’m disgusted, but I’m not sure.

Your Mom Does What?

I’m off to Quebec City for an extended long weekend tomorrow morning. It’s going to be -25 degrees Celsius (-13 F). So if I don’t freeze to death, my next post will be on Tuesday. But don’t fret, my pets. Mommy’s plan is to drink enough so that her blood alcohol is such that it would be impossible for her to freeze. Just like the French Québécois do! (Oui?)

Anyhow, before I leave you, here’s a dreamy little spot from GE, entitled ‘Childlike Imagination – What My Mom Does at GE”. This ad, created by BBDO, NYC employs a Tim Burton-esq look and feel. The score and the visuals are pretty epic. Nice work.

WTF Friday

I leave you for the weekend with these two spots produced by local shop TAXI, Vancouver. They commercials are for Hughes Car Wash – a chain of car washes located in the province of Alberta. The message: It Feels Good To Come Clean.

Ho Ho Holy Cow, Christmas Ads Already?

Normally I would be a little perturbed to see Christmas ads leaking into my RSS feeds – but if they’re this cool, like this spot for Marks & Spencer featuring Helena Bonham Carter by RKCR/Y&R, UK – then I say bring ’em on.

Rethink Endangered

Let’s finish the week with some really strong print creative from Brazil. Ad agency Fischer put together these solid ads for Conservation International. The idea? If man needed the meat of endangered species, would they be endangered? When there is an economical interest, people find a solution.

Nothing Motivates Like Booze

Except maybe really inspirational ads… for booze.

For example, this new Johnnie Walker commercial featuring French techno artist and DJ Gesaffelstein, who not only stars in the spot but also lays down the soundtrack with his new release called ‘Pursuit’. I love the creative, the music, the copy… just seems to be more suitable for a Nike or Adidas. Sorry BBH.
