Sorry guys, unfortunately, by mistake I removed this element from the blog, so I have to put back all the links when I have some spare time.
Maybe now I can get it organized by themes instead of just one big mass!

It's called Punch'n'Cuddle, I'm guessing you need quite a lot of free space to have one, but imagine getting back from work and relieving all that stress you couldn't relieve on the person who probably deserved it!

Apparently this competition has been around for some years (since 1997). I have never heard of it before, but it is a very cool concept by Red Bull. Basically, any one with a creative flare can enter, and the principal is to make an art piece using a can of Red Bull as the primary material. So if you have some spare time and can of Red Bull, why not give it a try?

I love this Obama phenomenon, cool projects just keep popping along. I don't think any ad agency could create such a buzz, sometimes it really is in the character of the person/product and a bit of luck. A good "product" sells for it self, you just need to know it exists.

I like the metaphor D&AD used in this weird animation/advert. Even more I would like to win one of those Pencils.

Thanks to Filipa for wanting to interrupt my work.
I can't read swedish, but it is easy enough to use. Great fun.
I am very curious about the connection with Tele2, so if anyone does read Swedish, do let me know!
I know it's gone past Valentine's day, but I'm sure all the male readers won't mind me posting this Ann summers ad, and the girls will probably see the funny side to the ad to ;)

xkcd has some very funny comics, some of them are to geeky for most of us to understand, but I'm sure you'll like most of them. My favorite was the Mento's cartoon, keep an eye out for that one. Anyway, I choose this one to wish everybody a Happy Valentine's Day, if you couldn't care less about St. Valentines, happy thursday.

Nice ad for a worthy cause, another good animation from the guys at W+K London, it's very simple but in my opinion works very well getting the message across effectively. Good choice on the voice over, actor Thomas Turgoose.

This years World Press Photo winners are out. The picture I choose is less emotionally heavy than most of the other photos which feature the very harsh reality that is war, plus it was taken by a Portuguese photographer (Miguel Lopes Barreira). I advise you to see, they are amazing photos, however, do be careful if you're very sensitive.

I don't want to get political, however this is such a good campaign that I think it's worth sharing, whether you support Obama or not.

A bit of Adidas history on this claymation advert. There is only one thing I don't like, it's the way it ends with that ball. In my opinion it doesn't do justice to the rest of the animation. I didn't know how Adidas started, and what better way to learn it than with claymation?

Very cool project by David Ellis in collaboration with Doze Green, a musical sculpture featured at FIFTY24SF Gallery.

I wish I was there when this happened. Some type of flash mob consisting of 100s of people just freeze all at the same time. Awesome!
This is what Improv Everywhere say about the project:
This is one of over 70 different missions Improv Everywhere has executed over the past six years in New York City. Others include the No Pants Subway Ride, the Best Buy uniform prank, and the famous U2 Rooftop Hoax, to name a few. Visit the website to see tons of photos and video of all of our work, including behind the scenes information on how this video was made.

Again, great work for Honda by Wieden+Kennedy London. I prefer the animation I posted earlier on, but this is very well produced and the concept is pretty cool, with a great choice of music, and with a nice "Cog" detail.
