One of the most popular questions on a Friday is, “do you have any plans for the weekend?” Or alternatively on Monday, “how was your weekend?” If you work with Jeff, the new guy in data processing, do not ask him that question, because he’d have to kill you. Really, if he told you, he’d have to kill you.
Take 4 minutes out of your Monday to relax and enjoy OPC director Max Sherman’s short film, “But I’d Really Have To Kill You.”

Johnsonville Sausage is pleased to announce a partnership with Food Network Canada and its hit series Chopped Canada. The partnership, which will help deepen Johnsonville Sausage’s relationship with culinary enthusiasts across Canada, features an exclusive, one-year agreement with Chopped Canada Judge and Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Mark McEwan.
The partnership will bring the Johnsonville Sausage brand directly into the homes of Canadian foodies with three different television spots which will air nationally during episodes of Chopped Canada. The spots, which start running February 29, will further connect the brand with Canadians, introducing them to new and inventive ways to mix Johnsonville sausages with different ingredients to reinvigorate flavours across all kinds of meal occasions. The ads show Chef Mark McEwan diving into a Chopped Canada mystery basket of fresh, local ingredients as he is tasked with making three sumptuous, original culinary creations inspired by Johnsonville Sausage. The final featured creations are: crostini with sausage ragout and ricotta cheese; maple syrup sausage and sweet potato hash with poached eggs and hollandaise; and steamed clams and mild sausage with tomato broth. Recipes for each featured item will be available at www.Johnsonville.ca.
Created in collaboration with advertising agency Cramer-Krasselt’s Milwaukee office and Toronto-based social media agency Matchstick, the ads will drive viewers to www.Johnsonville.ca where they can watch longer versions of each recipe video, and access a dedicated microsite at www.FoodNetwork.ca/Johnsonville where they can demonstrate their own culinary creativity through a contest that asks “How do you Johnsonville?” By sharing what three local ingredients they think would pair well with the perfectly-balanced flavour of Johnsonville sausages, participants could win a roundtrip to Toronto, a three-night stay at a luxury hotel, and a delicious meal at downtown restaurant Bymark, hosted by none other than the owner, Chef Mark McEwan.« go back — keep looking »
