Razor Sharp Music: Don’t EVER try this at home

Music made with razors?  Got me thinking about all the things that razors don’t (or won’t agree) to do. Things like: making coffee, checking email, or making small talk.

Anyways back to the video. Grey, New York adds one more product to the very long and very tired ‘this product can also create music’ list with this beautiful composition by Son Lux. Here goes: 

More unnecessary innovation? Me thinks Razor Automation is where giants like Gillette should be heading.

I’d love an amazing automated shaver robot that gives me a clean shave while I sleep.

We could call it:

  • Sleep & Slide
  • SleepShaver
  • Snoozeriser
  • ezZzy Shaver™

Imagine the time this would free up for some body-shavers…

Alternatively, they could have razors play music at hair-raising frequencies. So the hair just falls off.

Are you singing the Net Neutrality anthem? New York is…

PSA’s can be fun. More so if you can singalong.

This foot-tappin’, whistler friendly video takes on the FCC and all the people who will profit from making ‘our’ internet a television – all sung by concerned New Yorkers on the shitter.

Great stuff by Thinkmodo. Much like “Dumb ways to die” this track has a nice hook to it.

 Sing it out loud to the FCC. This shit will not go down!!!

BOM, BOM-BOM-BOM…CAN’T FLUSH THIS

Holy Smokes: the first full-page ad for marijuana hits New York

After decades of propaganda and blatant ignorance, the sweet leaf finally debuts in mainstream media. With its full-blown, full-pager in the New York Times, Leafly makes history in blazing print. The ad’s blunt. (Can’t help the pun).

I’m dubbing this advertising’s finest moment.
Snoop agrees. ‪#JustSayKnow

Big boom for Denver agency Redrag & Bull. Their approach: there’s a leaf for every symptom, you just need to know.

It’s medical and as legal as any other over-the-counter suspects: uppers, downers, screamers and sleepers. No more pills for them headaches, backaches, depression, appetite loss. This also comes with FREE make-your-world-more-funny goggles. Me likey.

So what do these pot loving digital hipsters do? Leafly provides information about different pot strains and where to buy them. That’s being in the know. All made possible  via their app and website. Helpful stuff. Literally 🙂 They have run a few ads before, none this big or this ‘addy’.

Now waiting for this to go international.
Next up, Jay’s Doobie snacks: Pa pa pup pah pah…

Happy campers: Bill and Ted, Cheech and Chong, Scooby and Shaggy, Beavis and Butthead amongst the first to celebrate this newfound knowledge.

No Bollocks: A twitter campaign that pays you to be a follower

In a first of its kind, Newcastle Ale breaks conventions and wows followers with…wait for it…Money.

Real money. Not branded coasters, flags, or stupid hats. No B.S. the first 50,000 followers get paid for their brand loyalty in actual money. Call it unsolicited marketing at its best. Sounds like seriously hard work for any brilliantly lazy and ballsy agency. In this case it’s Droga5.

Follow the money and get more money for your next pint.
Or follow the White Rabbit .

Here’s some of the honest, no bullshit ads.
