AMC’s Emmy-Award Winning and ultra golden oldies hip television show Mad Men is pure vintage goodness.
So, while, there is a fine line between looking contemporary classic and actually looking like you are going to a 1960s themed dance party, a few period-inspired pieces can go a long way.
…You too, can look the part without looking like you stepped back in time, literally. [Read more...]

As *ahem* ladies products adverts go, well, they’re typically nothing like what it’s really like when one’s little friend called Red comes to visit each month.
Boys, let me educate you, contrary to what most of the advertising industry is showing you on television, no we don’t wear yoga and spandex for a week, no we don’t want to gallop for glee and ride horses along the beach, no we don’t feel like donning a red dress and going salsa dancing and most certainly not do we want to fly seven feet in the air in skimpy cheerleading uniforms doing tricks.
Which is precisely why these new adverts (both traditional print and made for television) from Kotex are actually pretty cool. They are marketing the products by parodying [Read more...]
Oh no they didn’t! Oh yes, indeed, they did.Â Advertising Barbie and Ken are here!
Now you too, ladies and gay gents, can take home your very own Don Draper, Roger Sterling, Joan Holloway and Betty Draper from Mattel.
From Oprah, to Jeopardy, to Saturday Night Live to a Simpson’s spoof — it’s all about advertising in the 1960s.
Releasing later in 2010, the dolls are part of Mattel’s Barbie Fashion Model Collection and will retail for approximately $74.95 USD each. Considered premium-price collector’s dolls, they are in the same company as the [Read more...]
One advertisement, one image and a ton to talk about.
I know I’m a bit late discussing this, but I just had to eventually because it’s got so many things going on around it: I’m talking about the 2010 Pam and Tim Tebow advertisement for Focus on the Family that was aired during the Super Bowl [Read more...]
If you are like me, then you’ve been watching that commercial for the Luxury at Lightspeed Lincoln MKZ and saying to yourself, “Ooooh pretty, I love that song!”
So, I don’t know about you … but didn’t have my childhood in the 80s, I was just born in the 80s and therefore, I didn’t know [Read more...]
This is the new Palm Pixi advert from Spint and it’s super cute. I have no other way to describe it other than it makes me feel good when I see it.

I have no words.
But I will say this, because today is World AIDS Day, there is no time like the present to show you some seriously frightening, borderline disturbing, anti-AIDS advertisements.
They certainly got my attention.

ADweekMedia has put together their voting booth for the awards in advertising for the decade. Crazy, isn’t it? 2010 is almost upon us.
Below is a list and the adverts for their top choices in commercial advertising.
Is there anyone you think that is missing? I’ve already voted and I’ll tell you which advert really stood out to me above the rest in my personal opinion:- The Dove “Evolution” advert by Ogilvy & Mather.
Because I think, that this was something that needed to be said. I even blogged about it back in August 2009. So while, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Guinness campaigns (the surfer and the water horses — my favorite ever) as well as the “Keep Walking” campaign from Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff’s “Tea Partay” cracked me up for days I chose based on a personal thing.
Even so, Budweiser (frogs) and Cadbury (gorilla – wow) made me smile, Will.IAm’s “Yes We Can” for Obama gave me chills, Levi’s (dramatic classical music with jeans, love it!) and Geico (cavemen and Martin the Gecko) were awesome, but Dove’s “Evolution” was the top for me.
This is the official list below [Read more...]
