“We would have introduced Twix Bites in the 80‘s, but...”

Stupid fun. Launched in May, but refreshed a couple of weeks ago.

And, according to Adweek, "You can also call 1-844-WHY-SO-LONG for year-by-year information about the Twix Bites delay. (According to the message we got, in 1980, the company spent its entire R&D budget removing the shag carpeting from its offices.)"

“We’re all gonna die”

The new FXX network is going to launch by airing "Every. Simpsons. Ever."

 

What does that mean? It means "We're all gonna die."

 

I especially like the bleak color of the real world that's such a stark contrast to the hot colors of The Simpsons.

“A cheap ticket for a cheap...”

Now THERE'S a clear mission statement.

 

If you've never flown Spirit Airlines, it's a very, um, UNIQUE experience. Old planes, odd airports, and they charge for everything, including carry-ons and printing boarding passes at the airport. Bathrooms are still free. For the time being.

 

And they do this all with no apologies. They say it's their way to keep fares as low as possible. Some people "get it." The rest tweet their hatred.

 

Perhaps taking inspiration from Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets," Spirit unabashedly reads/sings some of their worst tweets and invites you to play along in a contest that offers an appropriately-stingy prize of a few Spirit frequent flier miles -- not nearly enough to get a free flight.

 

Spirit explains their philosophy here:

It’s not easy to be this smart in this short a time

Does it matter how you get there as long as you get there? I would be intrigued enough to look into this.

 

The simple writing and the mellow read from the announcer make these very short ads actually seem languid. And I like that they somehow assured the client that people would be able to find them with a Google search and that they didn't need to add "www.LowCostHolidays.co.uk" and a toll-free number on the end frame. (That is, IF that's how they aired and these YouTube clips aren't not-for-air agency versions.)

 

Here are two others. It won't take much of your time to check them out:

“First Moon Party”: odd but noteworthy

This is a tad, um... let's see... scatalogical? No, that's not right. "Scatological" doesn't include menstruation, right?

 

But it's noteworthy for good writing, good performances, and a good edit. Oh, and millions of YouTube views.

 

I also think it's a pretty smart way to tell moms and girls it's smart to have this in the house ready to go when it's needed.

 

And there's the bonus of telling girls to not lie to their mothers.

Bald Cartoons

Bald Cartoons | Compelling Selling | Scoop.it

"Cartoons from all over the world have gone bald, sending out the message that a child with cancer deserves to be seen just like any other child."

 

Ogilvy Brazil got creators of popular comic strips and cartoons to release images of their characters with no hair on their heads for Cancer Awareness Month.

There are images that you’re encouraged to use as your Facebook or Twitter image and there are posters to download.

I normally roll my eyes at case study videos, but I think that the video at the top of the site was done well. Perhaps because it's explaining the product to regular people instead of awards show judges.

See what swiping a credit card sets in motion

MISEREOR is the German Catholic Bishops' Organisation for Development Cooperation. (Thank you, Google).

Zip up to :30-:49 of this long-winded case study to see the cool idea: when you swipe your credit card to donate two Euros, you start a piece of video that shows what your donation can do. Cool idea. Tiresome video.

Sealand Sun's curator insight, May 6, 6:53 PM

Smartest way to advertise a fundraising concept, by swiping credit cards onto a piece of video you're making donations to the people in need. Awesome idea! The videos convey the idea of "releasing" the poverty, by donating through swiping your credit card.
