Brilliant Ad Campaigns

•April 15, 2009 • 2 Comments

So, I just re-visited the Frederik Samuel AdGoodness blog again today and saw a number of brilliant campaigns. The kind I desperately wish I had thought of. The kind I groan to even work on.


Make sure you head over to check out more of his site, but for now here are some recent highlights.

This Is The Thing

•April 14, 2009 • Leave a Comment

This Is The Thing that is rocking my world right now (the song, not the video). I can’t explain it—just is: over and over and over. Sorry it’s not working on YouTube anymore. It works again, but with an annoying commercial, courtesy of DailyMotion:

Until I saw the last episode of Lie To Me, I’d never heard of Fink before (glad I watch tv!).

Dreams of Flying

Reading a Chase Jarvis blog entry this morning I came across this video made from a camera strapped onto an eagle’s head. More info about the idea and story there. In Chase’s words:

Can I please watch this bird hunt?

Why is it that we dream of flying? Watch the video and you’ll remember

Into The Night

I just came across a band called The Motorhomes that’s no longer together. If my legacy was as good as this, I’d be okay with that. I’m in love with this song right now…added to fav list.

Found these images on FFFFound. Loved ’em. Wish they weren’t anonymous!!

Living in an Upside-Down World

•April 7, 2009 • Leave a Comment

How is it that the world is so full of beauty and evil—all at once? Even the understanding one gets from religion doesn’t smooth the discrepancy one feels when such extremes commingle. All the world is a blending of these.

It’s rare that something so perfectly captures this complexity in such a simple way. Maybe it’s even more than rare…but the experience is high art, even when depicting rubbish, refuse, and rubber tires swimming in open sky and water. Lights reflect off discarded bags, cigarette butts and wavy tree limbs. It’s just beautiful. To cap it all off (more than just the co-mingling) everything is upside down, posing the reflected world as real.

I haven’t seen inside his other galleries (they weren’t working for me), but Robin Soulier’s Ephemerals gallery (#1) still has me awestruck. Enjoy!

OMG. This video roxxors, and was apparently shot on a shoestring budget using the Canon Eos 5D. Check out Geenius for more details.
