Take a look at what REALLY happens to your food…


I literally do not know how anyone can look at these images and not feel sick. I immediately feel heartbroken sadness looking at living creatures being treated like their lives don’t matter. How can anyone with a heart support this? It’s just disgusting.

Local Pastor Calls For Death of ‘Queers & Homosexuals’


So THIS is backup of why I hate religion.

This idiotic, imbecile and insult to the human race is ACTUALLY suggesting that we put lesbians, homosexuals and “queers” in an electric fence and throw food down at them until they die. Reminds me slightly of Hitler, no?

I don’t think I need to say anymore other than fuck religion, fuck prejudice and fuck YOU if you agree.

The Spot: Death by Cable Switch today or spiral into misery, self-loathing and despair, DirecTV warns in hilarious ads from Grey By Tim Nudd

Death by Cable Switch

“IDEA: Having cable inevitably leads to misery, self-destruction and personal degradation. You lose everything and shave your head for money. You get beat up and left in a roadside ditch. You run into Charlie Sheen and reenact scenes from Platoon with him. You fake your own death and attend your funeral in disguise. Grey’s new DirecTV campaign (seven ads since January, with two more on the way) was initially meant to highlight features of the satellite-TV service that are superior to cable. But the creatives stumbled on a darkly comic structure for ads that seemed better suited to a broader attack—with each spot’s hero having a cable problem that snowballs into bigger woes, leaving his life in tatters. “We thought, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if this annoying cable issue spiraled into a domino effect of events that turned into total awfulness for you?’ “ said Grey associate creative director Steven Fogel. Indeed, it has become, with the help of director Tom Kuntz, the funniest ad campaign of the year.

COPYWRITING: The latest spot is narrated, like the others, by an earnest, serious voiceover that describes the scenes as they unfold. “When you wait forever for the cable guy, you get bored,” he says. “When you get bored, you start staring out windows. When you start staring out windows, you see things you shouldn’t see.” (Our hero sees a body being loaded into a trunk.) “When you see things you shouldn’t see, you need to vanish. When you need to vanish, you fake your own death.” (He swims away from a boat on fire.) “When you fake your own death, you dye your eyebrows. And when you dye your eyebrows, you attend your own funeral as a guy named Phil Shifley. Don’t attend your funeral as a guy named Phil Shifley”.”

Oh my, these ads are great! It’s like they’re mocking their own advertising strategy by claiming that you need to buy this, otherwise bad things will happen. Amazing.

There should be a UK version!

Missing link found? Scientists unveil fossil of 47 million-year-old primate, Darwinius masillae

“Feast your eyes on what a group of scientists call the Holy Grail of human evolution.

A team of researchers Tuesday unveiled an almost perfectly intact fossil of a 47 million-year-old primate they say represents the long-sought missing link between humans and apes.

Officially known as Darwinius masillae, the fossil of the lemur-like creature dubbed Ida shows it had opposable thumbs like humans and fingernails instead of claws.

Scientists say the cat-sized animal’s hind legs offer evidence of evolutionary changes that led to primates standing upright – a breakthrough that could finally confirm Charles Darwin‘s theory of evolution.

“This specimen is like finding the Lost Ark for archeologists,” lead scientist Jorn Hurum said at a ceremony at the American Museum of Natural History.

“It is the scientific equivalent of the Holy Grail. This fossil will probably be the one that will be pictured in all textbooks for the next 100 years.”

A team of amateur fossil hunters discovered the near-perfect remains inside a mile-wide crater outside of Frankfurt in 1983.

Experts believe the pit was a volcanic caldera where scores of animals from the Eocene epoch were killed and their remains were kept remarkably well-preserved.

Though the pit has been a bountiful source of other fossils, the inexperienced archeologists didn’t realize the value of their find.

Years later, the University of Oslo bought the 95%-intact fossil, and Hurum studied it in secret for two years.

His colleague, Jens Franzen, hailed the discovery as “the eighth wonder of the world.”

“We’re not dealing with our grand, grand, grandmother, but perhaps with our grand, grand, grand aunt,” Franzen said.

The unveiling of the fossil came as part of a carefully-orchestrated publicity campaign unusual for scientific discoveries.

History Channel film on the discovery will air next week.

A book release and a slew of other documentaries will follow.”

Old Spice – ‘The Man Your Man Could Smell Like’ advert

Another fantastic advert! Cleverly targeting male insecurities by pretending to be talking to women watching the advert, whilst claiming that you could do better if your man used this. Nicely done.

Lynx Dry Full Control Advert

[June 2011]

Another great ad (more recent this time!) by Lynx. I don’t think the ads sell the products, but they have some good ones and are recognisable.

NSPCC Dummy Child Abuse Advert

NSPCC Dummy Child Abuse Advert

One of my favourite adverts. I love all of the NSPCC adverts, I think they’re fantastic. And I’m not being biased just because it’s Saatchi & Saatchi!

I also love this one (another oldie):
