More Community cycling
Seems the agency has a thing about bikes and cycling.
Case in point this cute campaign to promote cycling in Buenos Aires.
Surprised I hadn't seen it before given it won the Print Grand Prix at Cannes last year!

A preposterous video
Guaranteed that at least one of the absurdities featured in this fun film will turn up in an ad within the next twelve months.

Fear of the unknown
I can't remember who said that but it's true.
At least it is when it comes to the world of commercial creativity.
Yet so many people go through their lives in adland afraid.
Afraid to speak up.
Afraid to give their opinion.
Afraid of being wrong.
Afraid of looking stupid.
Afraid of failure.
Trust me kids. I've been retrenched from WPP not one but twice.
I helped start and agency and walked away after a year.
I chose to focus on direct and digital when big TV was the place to be.
I chose to go work in London in my late thirties rather than my twenties.
And I walked away from the Aus agency of the year to go work for a tech company.
Was I afraid when I did these things?
Damn right I was. But I did them anyway.
Why the hell not!

For every lightbulb moment
It's rare that an Apple ad fails to float my boat. But this one definitely does. Beautifully executed. But seriously why/how would this ad make you wanna go buy a Macbook?

Brandalism on the Underground
Hell smart arse kids have been doing it for years.
But a UK mob called the Special Patrol Group are taking this to a whole new level with they are calling brandalism.
They're claiming around 40 members of their group have been active on the London Underground of late.
And rather than defacing posters they're replacing them.
I reckon their work is possibly better than many of the ads they have covered up.
But then again what would I know?
