The ending line of this Stag Antler Razor ad made me LOL … seriously, it did.

Is Facebook a Hypocritical Marketer?

Facebook has made its fortunes by convincing marketers to shift their advertising budgets from traditional media, to the internet. But the social media company recently embarked on an advertising campaigns of its own … and it turned to the old-fashioned formats of billboards and television. How do all of you who spend billions on Social Media advertising feel now?

In February the company launched a campaign in the UK that has seen its ads appear everywhere from the London Underground to the country’s most popular TV programs. In turning to traditional media, Facebook is following Google and many other digital media companies that have adopted old-fashioned methods for brand-building. Am I the only one who finds this a bit hypocritical … and eye opening when it comes to where marketers can get the most bang for their bucks?

Click here to see one of the FaceBook commercials. It’s not funny … what’s funny is that social media has to rely on traditional media to promote itself.

Nina Conti Still on Top in the UK

The last time we were in London we were able to see Ventriloquist Nina Conti perform at a theater in So Ho and raised a few pints with her afterwards. She’s probably one of the most creative vents working today. She recently posted a new performance schedule on her website, but unfortunately it doesn’t include any dates in the U.S.

Click here to see Nina Conti performing her hilarious human puppet ventriloquism act during Live at the Apollo.

Le Strip Tease

This sexy French ad does a great job of setting you up for its message by demonstrating how marketing/packaging affects teens … and the rest of us.

Put Your Ad on Breasts … What You Do After That is Up to You

A Russian company has come up with a new marketing tool … or tools. It’s called Tittygram and it’s a service to let advertisers put ads on female breasts. Click here to see a 30- second promo …. SFW.

For just 395 rubles ($7.36) you can have your ad created. After payment is received, one of Tittygram’s models will write your message on her breasts and send you the picture within the hour. Then you can use the photo however you want. Sounds like this idea came directly Vladimir Putin.
