I don’t usually post work from friends, but I’ll make an exception in this case. It’s a San Francisco BART/Muni installation from Struck in Salt Lake City for Utah Tourism and it’s fantastic. I know from experience, it’s REALLY hard to do something like this remotely without having seen the space. So for them to […]

Anyone have a guess what the hell this means? I sure don’t. What else would it be powered by? Midgets on giant hamster wheels?

Payback? Because so many people eat Great White Sharks? Because we shamelessly pimp Shark Week? Or are they telling the sharks to go vegan because eating humans are so horrible for your health, you know, with how fat we are and all. (And by the way, that leg is massively out of proportion to a […]

Since I missed the Friday FAIL on Friday, I figured I’d gross you out on Monday instead. Via.

To promote its Dollar Drink Days, McDonald’s in Canada created this frozen golden arches out of 4,000 one-dollar coins. People were encouraged to ice pick out a coin. What an absolute waste. Could you make it more difficult for people to get a free drink? And for what? What was the purpose of giving a […]

This seems like a pretty cool idea – it’s one of those things Nike does that has all the little touches to make it great. I love the line art drawings on the truck depicting what’s inside. Since the promotion is almost over, I’d love to see a new video on how it actually did.

It’s so overdone and cliché that it’s become a parody. […]

Man, this is such a cool idea. South Korean supermarket chain Home Plus installed 2D posters that looked exactly like the inside of their stores. Commuters could use QR codes on each product to order them via smartphone and the products were delivered to the customers’ homes after the evening commute.

I’ve got to say that while it’s gimmicky, Coke’s “green” billboard in the Philippines is a pretty damn cool idea. The plants each suck 13 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the air each year – and they’re planted in recycled coke bottles. Even the potting mixture was made from industrial byproducts and organic fertilizers. All told, […]

Ok, this is a nice thought – they’re billboards running in Wisconsin that, starting May 2 will say “Turn a life around” in support of fostering children. But here’s the thing – people will see these copy-less boards and not think twice about them, and when they’re flipped they might read the message. But you’ve […]
