Creepy Scottish Widows

I'm not overly familiar with Scottish Widows but from what I understand it's a pension and insurance company.

Truth be told it's not exactly the most reassuring of brand names.

Their advertising is though.

At least it was until the cheeky folks at We Fix Your Adverts got a hold of it.

Scared straight

As Alison from HR would say, "If you have any questions, comments or concerns, suck it the fuck up."

Australia said Yes!

Last Wednesday a seemingly endless wait came to an end and the results of the Australian same sex marriage survey were announced.

The result (as expected) was a resounding YES.

The original of this gorgeous spot ran during the voting period. It was a love job (literally) from Leo Burnett and Airbag with media donated by Wrigley.

To celebrate the Yes result the film has been extended. And it's now even lovelier. Enjoy!

NYC meets Tokyo

How beautiful are these magazine covers?

Except they're not real covers.

They're homages to The New Yorker by Japanese illustrators.

Hence the name - The Tokyoiter.

Pure Imagination Project

I've seen the effects of Alzheimers first hand and it sure ain't pretty. Kudos to the team at MullenLowe in the US who've taken the late Gene Wilder and cleverly brought some of the issues of this dreadful disease to life.

It's your choice

Creativity is often defined as seeing a connection between two unrelated things.

So kudos to the owner of the corner shop who spotted the connection above and turned it into a sales opportunity.

As I've often argued sometimes you don't need a copywriter to write good copy.

Give a little bit

Classic 70s tune from Supertramp, plus a bit of an homage to Toy Story 2, and you have yourself a very cute little Xmas spot for Amazon from London agency Lucky Generals.

Stranger Things on VHS

I tweeted the other day that the attention to detail of Strangers Things was so good that rather than a show set in the *)s it looked like a pristine VHS of a lost show from the 80s.

Seems I'm not the only person thinking like this.

Stranger Things is now available at Target in the USA on VHS.

Well kinda

It's actually on DVD or BlueRay but comes packaged is a well worn VHS case.

Brilliant bit of packaging and marketing.
