Meow Hear This

As a small agency, it’s hard to stay relevant. But it’s even harder to have the balls to know when to take a leap that no one else will. Furry, mesmerizing little balls.

Well, Toronto-based shop John St. did — forsaking the ‘outdated’ realm of traditional advertising and focusing solely on the growth medium of tomorrow: online kitten videos.

Of course, this is a parody of the ad biz and a clever one at that — after all, these are the chaps that came up with the now-classic Pink Pony case study — but it makes you stop to think: damn, if that isn’t a decent idea.

Sample the cat nip and discover how self-promoting really can be the same as self-depricating.

Mo’ Staches Mo’ Funny

Like a lot of advertising — or 80’s hairband music — you either get it or you don’t. These guys obviously get it.

Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Movember in style.

My Agency for an Infograph

Well, with Mad Men on hiatus, what else will you people find to fill that nasty dark hole? How about an infograph from the clever peeps behind Grip Limited’s The Big Orange Slide blog.

The part about the desk drawers is mostly true… if only it were easier to find a handgun in continental Europe.
