Blog of the Day: Board of Hi Five

This is our pal Steve’s blog – and I loved his last post on the top five NYC subway ads:

Dr. Zizmor and 1888 Margarita are classics – but this may be my favorite

..about which the BoHF says “Good cause, but scary. I wonder if the person who got his eyes knows all the gruesome shit they saw on Law and Order.”

love that.  see all five here.

need a male copywriter?

i shamelessly stole this from adage but it’s kinda awesome.

maybe i should take this copywriter’s idea and make a femalemuseumprofessional.com site when i start looking for jobs after grad school and make a flashy website featuring myself lying on a bearskin rug. i’m curious to see whether people actually respond to this…

Pet observation porthole: do want.

My sister sent me this amusing article about SkyMall. The NY Times loves reporting on how every tiny niche of society is suffering from the recession. Also, remember how Sarah had a SkyMall ad on her door of A1 for some dog bark collar?

Props to Mother London for making these brilliant little commercials. Below is a preview for the slightly longer “film” 24 Heures. The second is 8 Kilomètres and the last one is entitled Dial Hard .

blog of the day: gold kit blog

for serious. this is gold kit’s real blog. look, the address is www.goldkit.com/blog.asp!

for all of you who don’t know what gold kit is, it’s those people on tv commercials all the time asking you to mail your extra gold to them in an envelope. because we all have extra gold lying around…  i didn’t watch this year but i heard they had a commercial in the superbowl– or maybe i’m thinking cash4gold. whatever. same difference.  this service would be great if you were a pirate or you wanted to cash in last year’s grill like these people below. the blog appears to mostly feature food with gold in it and white people wearing grillz. enjoy.

Didn’t play this with sound, so if it’s super offensive, tough luck.

This is a commercial in Australia that made lots of people complain.
