Great new video from Xbox Lips for Lily Allen’s ‘The Fear’ – I’m sure I’ve seen the same concept used for something else but can’t think who, if you know get in touch. The album the song is taken from ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You‘ is also worth a listen and Lips for Xbox almost makes me want to apply for X-factor.
New advert from Adam & Eve for that bastion of British retailing – John Lewis. Really lovely advert and great choice of song ‘She’s Alway’s A Woman’ covered by ex-Guillemot Fyfe Dangerfield. Can’t help think the advert should feature the bankruptcy that would eschew from a lifetime of buying stuff from John Lewis or maybe a funeral with a Jonelle coffin?
“Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery-celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: It’s not where you take things from, it’s where you take them to.”
…and steal they did
A very clever viral released ahead of the new F1 season. Like it a lot.
Man buys a microwave (Panasonic). It’s still going strong 40 years later. He tells a newspaper that love stories like that. People read the story and think of said brand when they’re next buying something electronic. Priceless. Here.
If like me you’ve been wondering where/who the music from the new VW Golf advert is then wonder no more! Artist: Jeans Team. Title: Keine Melodien. Pretty sure it appears somewhere on a ‘Too Many DJ’s” compilation. Really like this advert and really like the VW brand and particularly the Golf. If anyone remembers the ”Veee Dub-ya” ad they did in the late nineties and has a link to it on YouTube (I’ve looked and can’t find it) then let me know. Anyway.
Bit of blurb on the brilliant advert in question…
“A man sits in his office designing a car. He hears a knock at the door and tells them to come in but nothig happens. He goes to the door and opens it to find himself on the other side. His double hits him and then a big fight scene starts through out the car factory as loads of differently dressed versions of him starts attacking him. He manages to fend them all off and then looks with pride at his creation. The narrator then says ‘Sometimes the only one you have to fight is yourself’. The subtitles states ‘The new golf’ with the logo for Volkswagen.”
