Uncategorized

Just in case anyone was wondering, this is the best bus stop in the entire universe.

Glad we’ve got that sorted. Happy Friday!

Spotted out an about in the last couple of weeks. Can’t see this one working half as well on a TV screen, can you…?

Two rules...

Pure Gold

Uncategorized

It’s been a tough few weeks for the British left. The deaths of Bob Crow and Tony Benn have been mourned by people from across the political spectrum, and for a generation of trade unionists and socialists, both men were folk heroes.

In Bristol (a city that’s often hangs to the left, and one where Benn was an MP) this billboard was modified to commemorate the two men.

Now, normally we don’t approve of acts of advertising vandalism around here….but given your humble author is still shaking some of his student union leftism loose, let’s allow this one to pass with a wry smile…

Tony Benn, Bob Crow

Pure gold? You bet. After all, nothing’s too good for the workers…

Addy Power

I spent a bit of time in Galway this week (which was looking resplendent in the run up to St Patrick’s day).

While I was out and about, I spotted this amazing and not-at-all gaudycar – which was proudly advertising its owner’s beauty business in the best way possible. Check out these eyelashes:

I also snapped a picture of this whole-wall mural above a jewellery shop. I’ve absolutely no idea what the significance of the giant beanstalks is, but the rings are a famous Galway trademark (and, handily, are sold in the shop below).

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Scandi-mania

Uncategorized

“Scandimania” has well and truly bitten Britain in the last few months. Whether it’s the intrigue of smash-hit TV thrillers like Borgen or the Bridge, the spike in interest in Scandinavian cooking and cuisine, or the fact that everyone under thirty in London seems to be dressing like a Viking these days,  fascination with our friends in the North has never been higher.

So I was interested to see this fantastic piece of outdoor from sunny Sweden last week, featuring pretty people, nice hair and some really cool interaction between the ad and the real world.

This ad for hair-care products was designed recognise when trains entered the station—and then showed our subject’s hair being tousled, as though windswept by the train. Really clever.

As Ad Week report, Ad agency Akestam Holst and production company Stopp produced the ad for Apotek Hjärtat’s Apolosophy products. Stopp in Stockholm says the ad was scheduled to be just a one-day stunt. But Clear Channel loved it so much that they kept it live for five more days “as a way for them to show the opportunities their screens can offer.”

Who can blame them?
