Willem Dafoe is the Devil

Posted January 30, 2013

Yep, Willem Dafoe is the devil, but you kinda already knew that, right?

It’s only one of Mercedes’ Super Bowl spots, I think the Kate Upton one is creatively void (ya, I said it), and I’m not just saying that because I’m a girl. I’m all for sex selling, I just want more of a creative concept to go with my sex. I digress. This spot, staring Dafoe, is amazing. And I’m guessing amazingly expensive, unlike the 30K price tag on the car.

It’s via Merkley + Partners and director Dante Ariola. Scooped from AdWeek.

Hyundai Canada Super Bowl Spot

Posted January 29, 2013


YouTube Preview Image

Unlike our southern neighbours, very few Canadian companies take advantage of the immense viewership of the Super Bowl in Canada. Last year, the Super Bowl was watched by over 111 million people worldwide with over 16 million Canadians viewing some or all of it. And, every year, the commercials generate almost as much interest as the game itself.

To take advantage of these numbers, Innocean Worldwide Canada and Hyundai Canada unveil “Gaspocalypse”, a 60-second post-apocalyptic spot that will air during the Canadian broadcast of the Super Bowl.

Ode to Quattro

Posted January 24, 2013

I know that we are three weeks into the New Year, but my friends over at Common Good just finished this great case study video of a holiday-themed installation they created for Audi Canada via Zulu Alpha Kilo.

Think of it as an interactive Audi S6 music box snow globe, but in a box. Nicely done guys.

Wooden Lego

Posted January 24, 2013

Okay, it’s not “real” Lego, but it sure is beautiful.

Japanese designers at Mokurukku have created a set of Lego bricks that are made from maple and birch. Carefully crafted to be stackable with regular plastic Lego bricks. Love.

Katachi Means Shape

Posted January 23, 2013

Other than “katachi” meaning shape, I have no idea what this song is about. But I sure do love the video created by directors Kijek/Adamski.

To make it they used approximately 2,000 silhouettes extracted from PVC plates using a computer-controlled cutter. The timing and use of colour is fantasic.

Scooped from Crush’s Gary Thomas on Facebook via Motionographer.
