Guerrilla Gardening, the illicit cultivation of public spaces, is currently occurring at various sites around London. Armed with bulbs, flowers and other gardening paraphernalia, volunteers are making their local area that little bit greener.

Round The Bend

Saw this from Young's as I was passing through Wandsworth. The building is still there but apparently they haven't been 'round the bend' since 2006 when the Brewery moved to Bedfordshire.

Coca-Cola Super Bowl ads

Two really nice ads from Wieden + Kennedy for Coca-Cola played out during the famous Superbowl ad breaks.

I like the Avatar film. I think it raises an interesting issue concerning the human drive behind online activity, particularly the increasing importance of online personas. The ad centres on the meeting of two people in the real world, while digital avatars roam the streets with some repeatedly changing their digital appearance. The main characters’ encounter takes place when the bloke orders a bottle of Coke, taking the girl out of her online persona and into the real world.

Save Tango

In an election of a different kind, Brivic and ad agency BBH have launched the 'Save Tango' campaign. The sway in consumer drinking habits towards 'healthier drinks' such as smoothies has left Tango on the verge of extinction. The hope is to drum up some support for the orange fizz and get it back in people’s mouths.

Powerful communication

Jon Steel describes advertising as a simple form of communication. He uses the example of the sign 'Will work for food' often held by homeless people to demonstrate this fact. Steel regards this example as a powerful piece of communication which works on several levels, referring to the prejudices often held against homeless people. Continuing on the same lines, I believe the sign below does the job. It would catch my attention, make me smile and I would be more likely to give money.

Chew through the minutes that matter

Wrigley's Extra has launched a campaign celebrating extra time in football matches. The 90+ Extra sponsorship, visible at games on the perimeter boards, big screens and match-day programmes confirms theses crucial moments, which frequently change the result of a game, just look at some of the December Premier League matches.

Here in the Fulham match-day programme, the ad relives the dramatic extra time moment in Fulham’s famous 2-3 victory against Man city, with the late goal from Kamara keeping Fulham's premier league dreams alive.

Whopper Virgins

Following a Hot Dog post, I thought maybe one about burgers. The Whopper vs Big Mac rivalry is an ongoing opposition. This time Burger King's Miami-based creative agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky offer a new take on an old brief, conducting a taste test where the participants have never heard of a burger. The scope of the research has led to a really interesting campaign.

The Hot Dog Launcher!

While looking into T-Shirt launchers, I uncovered a further realm of possibility with regard to firing popular objects at stadium crowds. Ice cream was interesting but the Hot Dog launcher was for me the most exciting innovation in this particular field. The video below is a documentary charting the invention of the Hot Dog launcher.
