ABSOLUT_NextFrame

As part of the Absolut’s global campaign, Transform Today, the premium vodka company announced a new project with one of my favorite graphic novelists Rafael Grampa. Entitled Next Frame, the collaboration invited users from around the world to help shape what happens within a new original story created by Grampa – as he writes it.

 Grampa-Working

Once the story was complete, Grampa transformed the still drawings into an animated film, which premiered in Berlin at MADE, a creative space by Absolut, on March 15, 2014.

Describing the project, Grampa explained, “I am always looking for ways to transform my work. With Next Frame, I have a chance to do something I’ve never done before by co-writing the story with users online, and also by turning the illustrated story into my own animated film. It’s a very exciting project, and I am happy to be working with a brand that allows me to try new things in the way I work.”

 Vincent-Black

The goal of the Transform Today campaign is to inspire people to tap into their creative potential and explore their ability to create a new future.  Next Frame is the first example of how Absolut will bring this goal to life. In the coming months, additional collaborations with the campaign artists Woodkid, Yiqing Yin, and Aaron Koblin will be announced. Each collaboration will provide opportunities for users to interact and explore the inspirational message of Transform Today.

huvrsss

Moby, Tony Hawk, and other celebrities rocket around on the HUVr Board—a flying board billed as a real world version of the hoverboard from the Back to the Future film franchise—in this slickly produced promo video featuring Christopher Lloyd who played Emmett “Doc” Brown in the BTTF film trilogy. 

Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 9.10.33 PM

According to HUVr, the board is crafted from “paramagnetic titanium” and is expected to ship in December 2014.

Funny or Die is behind HUVr, the mysterious tech company claiming to have invented the first hoverboard. The truth behind this massive viral campaign came out after a costume designer who worked on the shoot posted the experience on her online resume, which has now been removed.

Sony The Bottled Walkman

Bottled Walkman_Hero White (2)

To release their new underwater, swimmer-friendly MP3 players, Sony and their advertising agency, DraftFCB created the Bottled Walkman. To showcase the waterproof function of this MP3 player, Sony sold these Walkman sets immersed in a bottle of water.

This Walkman allows swimmers to listen to music while they are swimming laps in the pool. With a specific target audience of swimmers, it was even more crucial for the brand to ensure that their intended audience got to experience the product.

Keeping that in mind, Sony embarked on a smart product placement idea: to sell these MP3 players in vending machines at gyms and pool complexes where swimmers gathered. The work definitely paid off, with news channels picking up the story of this unique marketing idea.

My Favorite Ad of The Superbowl – The Phone Call: In With The New RadioShack Commercial

Screen Shot 2014-02-02 at 7.52.27 PM

The 80s called … they want their store back. 80s celebrities invade a RadioShack to take back their old stuff and make room for the RadioShack of the future.

The ad, titled “The Phone Call,” features icons from ’80s pop culture who show up to reclaim the technology of their decade, helping the brand turn the page on the RadioShack of the past. The spot opens in a throwback RadioShack store; an associate receives a warning phone call before familiar ’80s personalities including Hulk Hogan, Mary Lou Retton, Kid ‘n’ Play, and Alf, among others, barge in to “take back” their technology. What’s left is a sleek, modern store that serves as an introduction and invitation for consumers to shop the new RadioShack.
