Food Porn Index

Posted April 11, 2014

Procrastinating? Here’s an awesome Friday time waster – Bolthouse Farms’ The Food Porn Index.

It seems people hashtag pics of unhealthy food more so than healthy food – no real surprise there. Bolthouse Farms says they created this index to track the health of food on the internet and hope that the site encourages people to post pics of more healthy food. Healthy or unhealthy, the site has some pretty fun elements, like the still from the Donut Zoom above. Take a few minutes and check it out.

This spot features kids imaging themselves as the characters in the sequel, before one climbs into a Chevy Traverse Crossover SUV when his mom picks him up from school.

The spot was directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (RSA), who also helmed ”The Winter Soldier” and it’s edited by Christjan Jordan, Arcade Edit. Agency is Commonwealth, Detroit.

More info on the campaign is on Variety.

Meet Antoine Zombé

Posted March 12, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

I really like this spot for the Canadian Film Fest by JWT Toronto and directed by Spy Films‘ Jonathan Bensimon.

The spot is about Antoine Zombé – a Canadian actor who is a real life zombie, playing a zombie in the movies. It’s also about his plight to fame – as it’s not easy being an overly polite Canadian zombie actor.

I have one beef with the spot – the title they chose for it. “It’s Hard being a Canadian Actor” doesn’t really make me want to click on it to watch it. But you should watch it. It’s funny stuff.

Instagram Time Machine

Posted February 5, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

The Toronto Silent Film Festival and Cossette have partnered again this year with another old meets new campaign.

Last year the two created Instagram silent film trailers, this year they are celebrating Charlie Chaplin’s Centenary with Instagram time machine – view the video above.

One of film’s most famous icons, Charlie Chaplin, celebrated a historic milestone on February 2nd – 100 years since he appeared in his first film – and fittingly it came and went without much noise. Chaplin, known for his roles in iconic silent films, is the theme for this year’s Toronto Silent Film Festival.

The “time machine” is a series of linked images on the account (@TSFF2014) that transforms the typically random clutter of Thumbnail Mode into a flowing, interactive timeline of one of film’s most recognizable figures, including facts and video clips.

Boiling Water Experiment

Posted January 13, 2014


By now everyone is pretty tired of the words “polar vortex” and a lot of people did the boiling water experiment while in last week’s deep freeze. No one captured it better than Minnesota’s David Shelleny.

The Belize Tourist Board was quick to jump on the bandwagon with their own experiment, which failed, of course, due to their warm temperatures. Nicely done guys.
Scooped from Creativity where you can view it (why isn’t this vid on YouTube?)
