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.)

Biscuit Boy

cravendale_30_stills_01_0We arrived in Brighton last night, after sixteen hours of travel. But thanks to the miracle of Zopiclone, I’m not feeling too jet lagged.

As I was waiting for my sleeping pill to kick in last night, I saw this new spot for Cravendale. I’ve always loved their ads – and this one made me laugh uncontrollably. (OK – maybe I’m a tad jet lagged…)

Meet Barry the Biscuit Boy.

Crash Course Make-Up Tutorial

Long weekends usually mean an increase in the amount of drunk drivers on the road. But thankfully as enforcement and awareness increase, the fatalities and number of drunk drivers declines year over year. However there are many other tasks which can compromise your safety if you attempt them while driving.

You’ll see the example in the following video, created by Tribal DDB for Volkswagen, UK. The blogger used in this video is a well-established make-up artist with a strong online presence and many make-up tutorials.

Wait for it.

I was not expecting the ending and was pretty shocked when it happened. But I’m also impressed by VW’s use of a make-up blogger to communicate the message. It’s a great approach and interesting (and probably cost-effective) way to reach the target audience.

What Would You Do?

It’s my last day in the office for a week and a half. I’m very excited to head up to Whistler and enjoy a white Christmas. But first, I have some running around to do, which includes buying and wrapping gifts, packing my suitcase and grabbing a cross-eyed Himalayan cat named Nelson Mandela, all by 9 am tomorrow.

A white Christmas and a week in Whistler is pretty sweet. I feel like I won the Christmas lottery. Which lead to the inspiration for today’s post; what would you do if you won the actual lottery?

AMVBBDO, London developed a campaign for The National Lottery UK asking that very question. And these guys got creative. It’s commercials like this that make me (only for a moment) miss working on lottery biz. (see: lottery budgets)
