I am a massive fan of Chrome, and have had it as my default browser for months at the expense of Firefox. Extensions have been available for a while and once downloaded the icons sit neatly alongside the address bar in the top right of the browser.
There are not as many available as in Firefox, as you might expect, but I already have Facebook, Delicious, Dropbox, Gmail, Digg, Evernote and Chromed Bird (an impressive Twitter extension).
Google has released a promo video for Extensions this week and it is equally impressive.
At the same time as this, a promo was released for Google Translate. I have only started using this a lot recently since an old French friend got in touch via Twitter. In my limited experience it seems to be a great product, and again, the video is fantastic.
Your Weenis, your Weenis, it's wrinkly and it's pink
Here is the latest campaign for Carlton Draught, the sixth in the ‘Made from Beer’ series.
It was due to launch on television in February but was pulled by Carlton & United Breweries at the last-minute due to concerns that it may offend viewers.
The full series of 7 short spots can be seen at http://anyexcuse.com.au/ and is worth checking out, especially for Tingle, Weenis, and Wart.
The ads are pretty funny, and continue the humourous themes seen earlier in the series. I do hope, however, that the late jitters isn’t indicative of an increasing trend of advertisers becoming frightened enough about offending people that they substantially alter their marketing campaigns.
Updated: This campaign has now been pulled from the internet as well due to fears over a ‘public backlash’.
This is amazing and makes me want to rush out and buy spicy tomato dip. Extraordinary use of a full page OTP.
Tostitos Restaurant Style Salsa (link to Vimeo as the embed will not show it in it’s full glory).
The subject is football and the music is by the Pixies. Therefore it is great.
Nice idea too. Found on adliterate
I can’t imagine this was at all difficult for them to make, but the concept and the execution is excellent.
There is an obvious similarity between the new Tooheys New TV campaign:
and one of the Budweiser Super Bowl ads:
The Tooheys New ad was created by Saatchi & Saatchi and the Budweiser ad by DDB Chicago.
They seem way too similar for it to be a coincidence, but either way, I really like the concept.
I found the Budweiser ad, along with all Super Bowl 44 ads at Advertising Age, and the Tooheys New ad, along with the other spots in the series, at Mumbrella.
I read about this incredible video ad on Adverblog today.
Created for the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership it is both conceptually brilliant and beautifully filmed.
