Heineken – The Invite

Great idea by Max Gebhardt for a social media connected bottle opener that invites your friends over for a beer. Whoever has the most friends attending, gets a free case of Heineken.

Life’s too short – Brilliant advertising for Jobsintown.de

Just thought I’d mention one of my favourite ad campaigns of all time, the “Life’s too short for the wrong job” campaign by German agency Scholz & Friends for online recruitment company Jobsintown.de.

It’s been around for some time now (and picked up many awards) but I just never get bored with looking at it!

Great retro Twitter, You Tube, Facebook, Skype ads

Loving this retro ad campaign titled ‘Everything ages fast’ by Moma Propaganda for MaxiMidia seminars in Brazil.

Apparently the illustations are by 6B Studio but I can’t find any more information on them so if anyone out there know of them can you pass on their details.

Specsaver goal line technology ad

Whilst on holiday last week, I was reading the British tabloids (which is comically expensive to buy in Cyprus) after Englands horrific display at the world cup in South Africa leading to an early flight home for the team and stumbled across this after the Germany game which nearly made me fall off my chair with laughter….

This was 2 days after the whole Lampard / over the line / how was that not allowed / wouldn’t have a difference incident. The timing could not have been better and for me it is spot on!

The speedy turnaround is thanks to it being created by the Specsaver in house creative team who were also responsible for the equally brilliant Lynx spoof ad.

MINI vs Porsche – BRING IT

Very clever campaign by Californian  ad agency Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners for MINI.

MINI U.S. President challenges President and CEO of Porsche cars North America to a race!

Now, if the challenge is accepted, we all have it in our mind who has the quicker car but even when (or we might be surprised, IF) MINI lose this is going to generate huge media and social interest.

And in my mind it’s so perfect for the MINI brand.

Well done BSSP
