Why giant monster cars are a smart idea for cities

Big city cars have finally gone carzilla. And it’s all thanks to ‘Smart’. Which is a kind of a dumbesque name for any brand.

That said, the brand compensates with its brilliant sense of humour. Eco-Empathy, who would have thought of it?

Here’s the video.

These Germans be funny…

Here’s The Prototype Prank

Executed by BBDO Berlin. This is one happy road disruptor 🙂

No surprise: Australian anti-racism ad is not understood by racists

Racism. You can stop people using racist slur, but can you really change their sentiment? Alter their perception? Most likely not. People like to be stupid. It’s easier. It’s in their conditioning and although it may not seem so at the surface, it runs deep.

This anti-racism ad by Beyond Blue attempts to raise awareness for the ‘real’ people of Australia – aboriginals. It gets the message across by showcasing the fact that actions do speak louder than words.

The BUZZFEED article on the same highlights some of the user reactions…which makes you see just how ‘stupid’ some people really are. Ironically the ad entitled “The Invisible Discriminator” has a very visible discriminator. Here’s one such user:

And Chris isn’t alone. Which is sad. But there’s hope. There’s always hope.

The ideal approach to drinking a beer, and life.

There’s a new way of doing things in Hawaii. It’s called single-tasking and Kona nails it. Simple stuff. Do one thing and do it right. Made me smile.

Google glass helps Nepal save the rhinos…

There’s more to Nepal than the majestic himalayas. I just found out there were rhinos, and I’ve actually been to Nepal. Thanks glass for taking the blinders off.

And although I’m not a big fan of google’s little face clutter maker, in certain cases the possibility to do something truly wonderful couldn’t be clearer. More professionals need to use glass. I think that’s the BETTER way forward.

Coke invents giant drinking face cup to take on social media

In a world devoid of real-world interactions, a giant makes a stand. And I like it. Has a point. Especially since it’s on social media, should we watch it? Should we share it? confused….

Oh sweet elixir of unhealthy consumption, guard us from the scourge of social media so we can focus our thoughts on opening happiness everyday.

Washington: Racism is not a game

Every other time, brands change their identity or positioning for the most insignificant reasons. Things like ‘the changing consumer nature’, ‘new competitors’ or ‘dated messaging’ drive brands to spend millions on insights that will hopefully help their image. For once, there’s a story that runs deeper than skin. Watch this beautiful video and see why the brand team at Washington needs to get their game right.

Mephisto’s awesome “Get Well Soon” letter

Written by an old friend and batch mate. A demon on the keyboard (he actually plays), he goes by the name Mephisto.

I came across this after years.  Five years to be precise. It was a good read then – made my broken hip seem less broken, or something like that. I like No. 21. It still intrigues me.
