this is viral.

you see, y’ulle. the brands  wanna get on board with this ‘new social media shizzle’. so they invent a competition where users can submit their ideas for ads. but consumers ❤ porn (human truth). so consumers make porn ads with the brand’s logo, handed to them on a silver ready-made-jpeg-platter (yogisip.co.za). brand bans the porn ad from official site, but not from youtube (youtube is god). general public ignores all the ‘legit’ ads, and sends around porn ad. yogisip gets viral youtube porn ad.

all praise social media, y’ulle.

ambitious kids or stealth pitch: vote now

3 l’il 1st year advertising interns at some small, crazy agency in Sweden decided to pitch on the Adidas global account.

Crazy kids.

Crazy kids.

since it’s a recession, there have been loads of stories going around about how agencies are hitting below the belt and secretly pitching on other agencies’ business. guess it was a matter of time before someone came up with a way to do this sneaky vibe commercially. i understand – y’ulle gotta do what you can to survive these harsh economic times, but pretending your sneakpitch is a ‘project for your interns’ is pretty bleak.

to be fair, it might not  be a disguised stealth operation, and maybe these 3 l’il bears are just rly ambitious. i read that their CD told them to do it, but i feel like at the age of 22 you should be past the whole blame game and should start owning up to your actions / decisions / choices / lifepathcareergoals / giving your best girl  friend herpes when you kissed that one night when you were drunk and it was a dare. guess pitching on Adidas global is bigger than all that / sets a very unhealthy ‘millenial entitlement’ extravaganza precedent. ambition doesn’t quite describe this vibe.

Interns have loads of great, catchy ideas. Why shouldnt they go real life asap?

i thought i was ambitious by wanting to make the Creative Circle Hall of Fame by 26 but now i just feel average. think i’ll take up smoking again and just ‘wait for death’.

Started making a poll and then i lost interest, so heres a picture of what it would have looked like.
