New words needed

 These new words are part of a set that's been doing the rounds of the internet this week.

To be honest I wish I'd thought of them.

So clever.

Especially Chairdrobe which sums up both of my kid's bedrooms perfectly.

Click here for even more great new words.

There's small and there's Smart

I was working in the UK when the Smart was launched. I still remember the launch ad where two Smarts reversed into a single parking spot. This ad takes that great product demo a step further. Pretty sweet don't you think?

Car ads are getting worse

Car ads have been a bit shit for some time.

The globalisation of the industry (and their agencies) has definitely not helped.

Boring ads for boring cars made by bored expat creatives in regional head offices.

The warranty offer below for Toyota is just brilliant.

Seems like every new car these days has a better/longer warranty that the last.

Hate to say it but I miss the good old days of motoring.

We may have been less safe behind the wheel, but we were certainly more in love with the thrill that motoring offered.

No bollocks beer cap

Friend in the US shared this bottle cap inner on Facebook the other.

I can take or leave a lot of the Newcastle Brown stuff done by Droga5.

This however I love.

Stihl is out of this world

In space no one can hear you scream. They probably can't hear you using a leaf blower either. Which is good as they're rather noisy. Bloody great product demo though! Creative by Altmann+Pacreau.

Obviously the people behind this are more than familiar with the early Pixar Anglepoise Lamp short film. Still pretty damn cute though!

Very well Finished

Let's be honest. A brief for a dishwashing powder really doesn't sound like a great creative opportunity.

So kudos to the always reliable W+K London for coming up with something unexpected and interesting for Finish.

Fabulous film technique too.

Strong dogs

Found this surfing the web the other day.

No idea if it's real or a fake.

But what I do know is I like it. A lot.

Just glad it's not my driveway!

Smart enough

Old school American obviously has its tongue firmly wedged in its cheek for this oh so subtle gag at the expense of the Apple Watch. I kinda like it. Although that could be because I'm a 'watch' guy.
