“The Alchemists” becomes “Art & Copy”

March 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

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) […]

Diamond Shreddies make me giggle

February 5th, 2008 · Comments Off

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.

Cherry Chocolate Rain

November 29th, 2007 · Comments Off

Filet o’ Fish

June 15th, 2007 · Comments Off

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.

Skittles

January 31st, 2007 · Comments Off

Skittles Beard Skittles Leak Here’s an excellent example of a question that pops into my head quite often: How did they pitch this? How did they get them to say yes? This example is particularly well-done in an insane, what-were-they-smoking way, whereas most often I find myself asking those two questions when watching ads for […]

Watashi wa, Mac-desu

These are fun, but serve as a reminder of my lack of Japanese language skills, despite my ethnic heritage. Sigh… some day!
