Shocking Ad | I Can’t Wait Until I Grow Up

28 Jun

This ad is great! It’s shocking but it’s a must see!

I found it truly effective, I really felt like donating something to protect kids and join the fight. I swear that if I wasn’t poor as shit, I would totally send them money – I was absolutely led by his commercial. This is a serious issue!

It’s not easy to see, but it’s worthy! It’s astonishingly touching, well developed; it makes you close your eyes and  gives you chills all over your body but, above all, it makes you think about this particular situation. And the kid is an awesome actor!

Great job Ogilvy Dublin!

As Free as my Hair | How to tame it

27 Jun

My hair just can’t be tamed! During winter, summer, spring or whatever… In any occasion, I look like I just came out of the jungle and was attacked by several wild animals. It’s lame!

To solve my problem I have a new product that promises to, not just tame my freaky hair, but to protect it from damage caused by sun, wind, pollution and from comments like: “did you brush your hair today?” or “What happen to your hair?” or “Was it raining in the morning?” or “You know what you should use? Hair spray!”.

I’m gonna start using this product now and, hopefully, in a month I can look like a normal person, instead of a member of some remote Indian tribe.

Stay tuned! I’ll talk about the results in a few weeks.

During that time I would love to hear about any hair product that WORKED for you (in case you HAD the same problem) or if you already used this one.

If you want to complain about your undisciplined hair – Be my guest! Unlike Rihanna, I don’t like to feel like “I’m the only girl in the world”.

IDEA FOR A BEAUTY BRAND: If you want to release a new product which main objective is to tame wild shapeless hair – name it LEASH. Cause it’s exactly what my hair needs and I would totally buy it by that suggestive name! :p

How To Be Stupid at Work

22 Jun

I know you’re aware that there are a lot of ways of being stupid at work… But you won’t find a cooler way than this one!

As usual, my creative friend DIESEL  had the best idea ever: To make Facebook look like an Excel spreadsheet. Now you can keep from being an asshole at work, to start being a freaking smart asshole (or stupid or whatever)!!!

You are now able to trick your boss into thinking that you’re such an example as a professional and that you’re totally not that mothafuckin’ procrastinator, who spends its time joining useless groups on Facebook, liking hot guys/girls photos, stalking your ex or posting bad things about your work or boss on your wall. He’s so gonna bite it!

Facebook will look like this – boring as shit! Just the way your boss likes it!

See the video about this Facebook App and learn how to be the best professional your company ever had!


Not so smart now, huh boss?

DIESEL, when I grow up I wanna be just like you! :)

First Ad Written on Hair

21 Jun

“It takes extreme precision to work at this size. ProGlide Gillette finest blades.”

“Our Best work is viewed up close. ProGlide Gillette finest blades.”

Gillette, BBDO (ad agency) and a group of scientists, from University of Nottingham, actually ripped off some strands of hair of an innocent man and wrote an ad on it, like they’re the kings of the world or something.

The ads measure less than 1/10 millimeter and it’s currently pending record-breaking status at Guinness World Records.

This campaign main objective (besides creating an enormous buzz everywhere and being on Guinness) is to emphasize the precision of their new ProGlide razor.

In addition, Gillette placed the carved hairs in men’s airport restrooms with a scannable QR code. Once scanned, guys could see this video and what was written on that hair.

How cool and disgusting is this? Can you imagine a guy going to the restroom at some airport, looking at filthy beard hair on the sink and getting really excited about that? Something like: “wow, some guy’s hair on the sink with QR code, totally not creepy and unusual. I definitely have to scan this thing; it may be a prize on it!!”. WTF Gillette?!?

Anyway, I really like their idea of writing on hair. It’s very creative and a great way to create buzz around the new product. Period!

What about you? What do you think about this?

iPad Menus | The Future

20 Jun

Apparently in the near future, it will be easier to make an especial request in the restaurant.

I don’t know about you, but I hate to repeat like 100 times what I want in my sandwich or salad or whatever; and then when they bring me the food is always missing something or it has another ingredients that I didn’t asked before. And that bothers me like hell!

This New restaurant – STACKED – has a cool way to take orders and to pretend that it’s a fancy restaurant from the future. It integrates an iPad in each table, which allows their guests to customize their food.

STACKED customers can choose a wide variety of food, including pizzas, salads, burgers, deserts and shakes – all personalized with the help of an iPad!

 “We wanted to create something entirely new in the restaurant industry; a ‘Fast Casual Plus’ dining segment that would really give our guests the unprecedented ability to control their own experience.” Paul Motenko, co-founder of STACKED Restaurants

Forget the Future! It’s happening NOW!

How cool is that?

Diesel | ‘Like’ Campaign

14 Jun

As usual Diesel innovated again in its new campaign. The concept is bringing the ‘Like’ button to real life – “If we love to tell people what we ‘Like’, why not doing it in real life?”

The project started in Madrid and allows people to ‘like’ products in Diesel stores while sharing it on Facebook.

How? All the clothes display a QR Code that can be scanned by customers. By scanning the codes, shoppers can also see similar products and ‘like’ it on Facebook.

This is not just an entertaining campaign, but also really smart. It allows people to find items that wouldn’t probably be found online and it also lets fashionistas share their style online.

Oh Diesel… You rock!

What do you think? Is this campaign “Smart” or “Stupid”?

Always wanted to do it! And this is the perfect time for that.
