Stand up and take a bow Ikea

Nice one Ikea. Just hats off all round. To client. Agency (Mother). Director. Production people. Everyone.

Just nice. (Well except for the music, which is a bit twee, but you can’t have everything).

Was it inevitable Brad would sell out?

Brad, Brad, Brad, Brad, Brad. *shaking head*

What the hell is Brad Pitt (previously one of the coolest men on the planet) doing mumbling gibberish in B&W for ladies smelleries Chanel?

How much money can Brad need that he has to resort to this? His movies give him regular pay packets in the $1m+ range. More money than most people will even hear of let alone see in their lifetime.

We expect better Brad. And you should know better than to sell your soul to the man to push smelly nonsense on the masses.

I suspect witchcraft is involved. Somebody at Chanel has a little man doll with a tuft of Brad’s whiskery beard stapled to it and they now control his every move.

Be strong Brad, break free, become a man again.

Haribo Starmix – dear god the horror.

This. Pile. Of. Dung. Is. Just. A. Load. Of. Random. Words. Shouted. Out. By. Wooden. Fools. In. Front. Of. A. Fake Service. Station.

I feel ill. Join me in banning the eating of Haribo products in protest at their laughing in the face of advertising.

Kate’s ample assets boost SoBe profile

An epic celebrity led advert for SoBe.

Never heard of them? Me neither. But after watching the 1 minute and 30 seconds of Miss Kate Upton writhing and lolling around with a bottle of the stuff, you’ll be a convert. In fact, I bet you’re itching to start drinking it until your brain bursts. All in the hope you might meet young Kate, impress her with your witty repartee and special dance moves, before whisking her away for a bit of bumping ugly.

The power of celebrity. Never doubt it.

Well done marketing chaps at Sobe. Your website was quite fun too.

It’s so effing simple

2356% APR – It’s so effing simple.

Quite apart from the shameful wrongness of this type of finance, how did anyone at QuickQuid or their ‘advertising’ agency allow the F word in this ad?

When, where, what?!I hear you say. Head straight to here to listen.

You what…? She says quick and simple, not the f word Dave. Oh…well to my ears when shown on the telly this morning it sounded like ‘so effing simple’.

Remember ladies, if you need money in a hurry you should always choose tricking on the streets over paying TWO THOUSAND PERCENT INTEREST!!!

Work harder, lay off the fags and booze, stop buying scratchcards, lcd tvs, and pies and you might not have to ever visit the scumbags at Quick Quid, Wonga, Ocean Finance, etc.

Yours quite angrily, Dave

Dear Gap

You have been sold the logo of a pharmaceutical company. More here.

This is not the logo of a company of seemingly friendly chaps that had a dream of clothing the world in the 1990s in chinos and bright shirts.

Stop taking the drugs.
