I posted about this film over a year ago (here), when it was called “The Alchemists,” wondering if anyone knew if it had a release date… and then I forgot all about it. I see now it has been renamed to “Art & Copy” (and maybe re-edited? judging from a comparison of the two trailers) [...]

This campaign caught me off-guard when I first caught the ad. It took a second for my brain to resolve what I was seeing, but then the giggling started and really hasn’t stopped since last night. This kind of irreverence is great – certainly more successful than the trying-too-hard Crispin Porter Bogusky campaign for Burger [...]

Ok, I guess I can’t ignore this any longer. Tay Zonday is clearly insane, but may be a genius (or at least smart enough to listen to the right people). The original video showed up in April, and caused a firestorm of disbelief and laughter as it spread across the web: was this for real? [...]

Saw this for the first time last night and was riveted. I didn’t know whether I should poke my eyes out by the end of it or stand and applaud. In any case, it’s directed by Napoleon Dynamite’s Aaron Ruell, and commissioned by Leo Burnett.

Wired.com reports on Issey Miyake’s recent Kyoto Prize (more here). The official Miyake site offers a lot of interesting interactive pieces (esp. here). I previously noted some of Miyake’s timepiece design here.

Was browsing the Advertising Age site this morning and came across the latest TV spot for Brand Jordan (see “Brand Jordan Ad as a Triumph of Music” or see a lower-quality version on YouTube) directed by Mark Romanek.
