Evil Dead: The Musical

Posted May 30, 2008

Evil Dead: The Musical

Here’s the latest from Saatchi & Saatchi Toronto for Evil Dead: The Musical. The goal of this print campaign was to convince theatre goers that this musical isn’t gory but that it’s just like all the other musicals people love just a bit more evil. It must be working as ticket sales have gone up 30% since this campaign started and the posters have become so popular that people are stealing them off the streets (now the theatre is selling them for $10 each). Kudos to Saatchi & Saatchi. View the posters and full credits here. Facts scooped from Marketing.

Your cell phone company is evil

Your cell phone company is evil

This broke back in December when I was way to busy with my own work to look at anybody else’s. But this film was just posted on YouTube a few days ago, which is how I discovered the campaign, so I’m posting it now for those of you who may have missed it too. I prefer the animated “villains” to the live-action “heroes”, but that’s just me. I particularly love the voice of the female villain. No Evil is a campaign for Net 10. The concept is that all cell phone companies are evil and I think we can pretty much all agree with that (Rogers, you are evil and you know it). Agency is Droga5. So good.

Super chill monkey does Hollywood

Super chill monkey does Hollywood

First off, I think it’s an orangutan, no? But the title of this post is the title for the spot as it appears on YouTube & AdCritic, so who am I to mess with it. This is another web film by Cutwater for Levi’s. I prefer it to the jean jumping (see “Creative Recycling” post from May 13). What a great actor this little guy is. I did however recently see a documentary on how monkeys and chimps are treated within the entertainment industry and I have to say it left a bad taste i my mouth. I still love this spot and hope this little guy is and will continue to be well cared for.

Animation painted on public walls

A friend set me this link this morning with the line, “this is so cool I’ve never seen anything like this before”. Well, that peeked my interest and I was not disappointed. This is Muto, an ambiguous animation painted on public walls, made in Buenos Aires and Baden. Animation and editing by Blu and produced by Mercurio Film. “Muto” was also included in Creativity’s Top 5 last week.
