A Brazilian ice cream company is trying to encourage purchases by including 10,000 iPod shuffles in specially marked boxes. The specially made “propsicles” are manufactured to look identical to the real thing, but to the consumers surprise they won’t get a sweet tasting treat, but rather a sweat listening treat. It’s a pretty clever idea especially when you look at the packaging:

When you think about selling men’s fragrances, not sure if a shaved vagina comes to mind.  Apparently Tom Ford agrees with the fact that sex sells…..

Okay, so Skittles has gone and done it again.  Check out the funny commercial below.  The race is on between them and Starburst.

McDonald’s is Run by Satan… August 7, 2007

Well not really, but recently a study was done on how powerful advertising campaigns effects, such as McDonald’s, are on preschoolers. The results were astonishing and proved that advertising coerced the taste buds of the children into thinking that the food presented in McDonald’s packaging tasted better than regular presentation. Even carrots were “better” when they were wrapped in the golden arches. This means that the kid’s “perception of taste was physically altered by the branding.” See the link here

I had seen the Sprint commercial below a few days or a week ago, who knows, and absolutely loved it.  Then, today when I was scanning BoingBoing, I stumbled across a post that said “Animated Flashlight Film” and of course clicked the link.  That is when I put two and two together to realized it was the same people who did the commercial.  The film was done by piecing together long exposure photos of people waving flashlights around into designs. Pretty cool idea if I do say so myself.  None-the-less, scope out the commercial below and when you are finished head on over to the PikaPika site to watch the “Pika Pika 2007” film.

The top image apparently angered a bunch of pagans.  They found it extremely disrespectful even though they think nothing is wrong with the well endowed figure they consider a fertility symbol….awesome.  Click picture for full story….
