Borrowed Egos

Puffy Daddy's BK late spot

Kanye West's Be Kanye for Absolute

What happens when celebrity egos direct commercials? The ad ends up selling the celebrity. So it should be no surprise when two of the biggest over blown egos are given the opportunity to create an ad, that they ignore the product itself and simply go to what they know best, selling themselves. Maybe Ad creatives should start rapping...oh wait.

Cool as Ice

Agency: Giovanni + DraftFcb, São Paulo

It amazes me that a car in this day in age would just be introducing air conditioning not to mention the identities of these mysterious "Trend Setters" who received this promotion (sign me up) but no matter, to me this idea is so simple and unique it deserves mention and oh yeah, I totally want one.

Creative Black Tie

Right now, somewhere, a junior creative with a necktie account is going to slap a logo on this thereby making it completely devoid of humor...but for now you can get your logo-free version here.

In perhaps the worst timing, cross promotion, WTF? in ad history TBWA/YEHOSHUA Israel combine warm fuzzy thoughts such as President Bush, the Middle East, kidnapping, the secret service and the 2008 Olympic games in beijing and tie them to their client McDonal's.

BMW Intsallation

BMW Welt in Munich is a mechatronic installation by ART+COM, the Berlin-based interactive media company. The project uses 714 metal balls that are individually suspended on barely visible strings, creating an seemingly weightless, amorphous mass. Each ball lowers and retracts independently, which allows them to approximate almost any form.The installation moves through a cycle of classic and contemporary BMW car shapes from throughout the company's 90-year history. In between cars, it goes through some impressive routines, showing the creation's versatility.
