Japanese ad for President Trump
The prospect of Donald Trump as US President frightens the life out of me. The guy seems to get more than a little crazier with each passing week.
Video editor extraordinaire Mike Diva shows us what a Trump presidency would look like. Japanese style!
Utterly crazy. But probably not as crazy as the man himself. Trump that is not Mike Diva!

But man oh man how beautiful are they?
I can't imagine how long it must've taken to set up these photos.
In case your eyesight is as poor as mine they're by Hasan & Partners in Finland for Metsa Wood.
Click the pics for a better look.

One of my kids emailed me this video on the weekend.
I was ready to switch it off after a few seconds as I thought it was yet another dull agency case study.
Fortunately I didn't as it turned out to be a very clever idea.
Creative by Canadian agency Crossette.

Ad block this!
This Danish bus-panel is a great example of what I mean.
Or is it?
Put this headline on a banner ad and it doesn't work.
Which means it must be the use of a bus-panel that's doing all the work.
Or is it, as is so often the case, a connection of two unrelated things.
Ad blocking is happening online.
So they chose to highlight the problem offline. On a bus.

It Ran - Or did it?
Scam ads. Scourge of the ad industry.
So a couple of canny creatives came up with an idea to (semi) legitimise them.
A magazine filled from front to back cover with nothing but ads.
To be honest it's not that different to running scams in local newspapers.
Although the cost of running the ad does go to charity.

This Weight Watchers ad I saw on an ad blog made me laugh. A lot.
But let's be honest it is pretty much a one-off idea rather than a campaignable thought. Still fun though!
