I gotta take my hate off to King James for this. I love that the promo campaign for a print advertising award is being run online. I also love that we get to generate our own content. So, let's see who can out do who, shall we? Head over to The Eagle Awards Site and start creating your spoof ads like so many have already done. The best one wins tickets to the always inspiring Eagles Breakfast. And by "inspiring" I mean the speakers themselves. The actual breakfast is akin to eating a warm bucket of hamster vomit. Aaaaaaaand GO!

You've heard me praise Nike for its Fuel Band many, many times. It really is one of the best purchases I've ever made. So it pains me that mine suddenly stopped working recently. And it pains me even more when I see the sheer awesomeness that they're up to overseas. Sponsoring the most amazing music festivals, giving VIP access to anyone wearing a Fuel Band, as they did in SXSW when I bought mine. Come to SA already! via

If you happen to work in the South African ad game, the next 2 minutes will have your mouth plummeting to the floor and expelling an array of elongated high-pitched phrases like, "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?" "Aaaaaah sheeeeeeeet!" and "Hawuuuuuuu!" You'll inwardly praise what you've just heard, for its razor-sharp wit, Herculean-sized balls, and sheer, unadulterated shamelessness. And like a cocained meerkat, you'll immediately raise your head and violently look around the office for your fellow creatives, motioning each one over with epileptic hand gestures to listen to what I can guaran-damn-tee will be the most spoken about recruitment ad for years to come. One that will have portfolios filling the halls of TBWA/HUNT/LASCARIS in no time, and poor Murial filling her giant coffee mug, with anything but coffee.
