Kinda makes you want to go to FantasyFest, doesn't it?

Only this body painting is for a good cause (a good cause other than oggling hooters, that is) -- breast cancer awareness.

Found these on the Creative Advertising Facebook page.

OK, fine. I'm arrogant.

Is there anything worse than checking out the web site of the agency that got the business you were pitching and saying to yourself "Are you $%@&ing kidding? We lost to these guys?"

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Probably a bad attitude. But those of you who know me know that I'm kind of a dick anyway.

But still . . .

This is a spot Dodge ran (with Dexter C. Hall narrating) that Peta objected to.

And THIS is the Dodge response. Really, I think this version is better anyway.

Sorry. I been busy.

But this spot I found in an AdFreak think on the 25 Most Epic Ads That Aren't 1984 is awesome.

According to AdFreak, Guiness spent 10 million pounds, shot it in Argentina and (this is the good part) used no digital trickery. You have got to check them out. Some awesome stuff on there.

There is a reason big sucessful brands advertise

And you can make a hell of an argument that advertising is one of the reasons they ARE big and successful.

This always kind of pops into my head when someone small questions the validity of any sort of advertising. Seriously, Nike didn't just materialize that big. Nor did any of the others. They came up with a good idea and promoted the hell out of it.

Four words: "Do good. Tell people."
