Uplifting Coke Ad

Security cameras don't just capture crime. Here's one of the best ads Coke (via Coke Latin America) has ever done.

Kids Say the Darndest Things.

Here's one of the best ever anti-smoking ad stunts ever. If you smoke, watch this. (This goes for Dale's racquetball buddies too.)

How Interesting Are Newspapers ... Turns Out, Pretty Darn Interesting

In an effort to convey just how newspapers can still command a reader's attention, Duval Guillaume, on behalf of Belgium's Newspaperwork, gave three top newspaper advertisers a free, chauffeur-driven ride (and a newspaper to read) while attempting to distract them with silliness.

Everything from pantless chauffeur drivers to flaming runners to median strip golfers to a bear driving a car to a man in a space suit to an American Indian on a motorcycle couldn't distract the advertisers from their newspapers. Watch it here. I like it.

Hmm. Either newspapers truly are interesting or the advertisers where just busy attempting to find their own ads and where in the paper their competitors advertise.
