What made the Golden Age of Cinema so great? Leading men and women that didn’t end up in Betty Ford for blowing snow off midget strippers? Thoughtful effects that didn’t come from a lab of computer geeks? Actual… I don’t know… writing?
No. Great vintage movie posters, that’s what. Luckily, British design firm, LaBoca (enjoy that link, Georgia O’Keefe), helps us recall back to the days of Bogie and Bacall with sleekly dark posters for Darren Afronosky’s Black Swan that draw inspiration from Eastern Bloc designs from the 60s.
So who’s the ugly duckling now?
Wha-what? That’s right – Jimmy Dean strikes again. This time, JD gets puuurty campy with some hilarious new spots that debuted earlier this year featuring some very “special” heroes of the morning meal.
So what gives with the awkwardly funny bits? Apparently mama brand bear, Sara Lee, did a little digging and found out that what people want are good old fashioned breakfasts, but they don’t have the time.
So, voila, Jimmy Dean is here to save the day! I don’t know about the products, but the ads sure are tasty. Oh no!
Breakfast – it’s the most important meal of the day. But is it the funniest?
Jimmy Dean thinks so. At least according to the series of “Shine On” spots from TBWA\Chiat\Day that they’ve had running for the past year or two.
So what’s the takeaway here? Eat sausage and deep fried potatoes every morning and you’ll feel like a planet all day? Doesn’t seem like too hot of marketing, huh? But it’s damn funny.
So thanks for the laughs, JD. It sure makes my morning bowl of granola just a little brighter.
The digital revolution has created perhaps the greatest shift in the way that people gather information since the invention of the printing press. Ironically, it’s that same tsunami of knowledge that has made us unable to comprehend more than 140 characters of said information before turning away… unless there are purty pictures, of course.
Helping putting our world in digitally clear perspective (and yes, there are pictures), Hongkiat.com has gathered 55 of the best infographs tackling the wonder the social media era. Hell, even Gutenberg can’t help but retweet.
Check out these cool ‘graphs and more at Hongkiat.com.
Here’s to your biggest fan – the one who stands by you through good times and bad, smart moves and sour, the bright lights and the dark alleys. Your biggest fan might be your mother, your 4.5 lb. Chihuahua, Daisy, or that cute blonde that lives down the street (okee, it’s your mom). But for classic B-lister, Kevin Bacon, his biggest fan is clear: it’s Kevin Bacon.
At least according to this hilarious new LogiTech (yeah, LogiTech) spot. And you don’t need six degrees of separation to chow down on this Bacon on Bacon action. After all, it’s not the first time that Bacon is actually a ham… and it probably won’t be the last.
Some days, everything just turns out right.
You hit twelve green lights in a row on the way to work. There’s one last lemon head in the bottom of your coat pocket. You manage to slide into your cube mere moments before the boss rolls by. These are simple moments when the stars align, Lady Fortuna drops her top and everything just comes out right.
You look about, ready to slap some palm with the nearest human being… but no one’s around. Until now.
When those ‘booyeah’ moments arise, just slide on over to High F***ing Five and get some digital props. Hosted by an ad copywriter who found himself “really bored, a lot” – huh, you don’t say – HF5 is like a permanent collection in the Louvre of online awesomeness, featuring all kinds of wacky, candid and downright hilarious shots of people going high and low.
