Weiden + Kennedy London have just put out a lovely little YouTube experience for Honda Civic and its evil twin the Honda Civic R. A short film that turns dark the moment you push the R button on your keyboard. Love it! Click here to see the awesome for yourself.

Every ad agency owner knows the pain of getting creatives to fill out their time sheets. Well, it seems there's a simple Pavlovian solution. Beer. It began at JWT Brazil and now it's at Minneaplis agency, Colle+McVoy - a system that rewards creatives with beer the more they fill in their time sheets. Genius, no? Of course, we all know the time sheets will never be accurately filled out, but hey, when has that ever stopped an ad agency?
YouTube teamed up with Internet favs, The Slow Mo Guys, to recreate some of the memes you would regularly find on the internet in super slow motion, proving that these two blokes are having the most fun on the Internet right now. Bastards.
The humdrum cat food ad is a thing of the past, thanks to the Internet and our need/love for cat videos. This new effort from Meow Mix is no different - a literal EDM Meow Mix with dancing cats and tons of product... and because Meow Mix feels the Internet needs even more cat content, they're letting you create your own track with your own cat at ItsMeowTime.Com for a chance to win a trip to Hollywood. I'm cringing as I type that.

To promote late night shopping at their Singapore stores and celebrate Halloween, IKEA Singapore decided to pay homage to Stnaley Kubrick's classic horror, The Shining. They also hid 13 items in the footage that, if you find, screenshot and comment on, can be yours. Happy hunting, Singapore.

Isn't it nice to see celebs using their massive popularity in aid of something good? These two look like idiots, but it's for such a good cause, I can't help but smile. Wish I could say the same for a few 'celebs' in SA who recently decided to raise awareness for cancer by appearing on the cover of You Magazine with 'shaved' heads... and by 'shaved' I mean photoshopped and by 'celebs' I mean assholes. Way to commit, guys. Shameful. Yes I'm talking to you, Lee-Ann Liebenberg, Shashi Naidoo, Poppy Ntshongwana, Zakeeya Patel, Elma Postma and LeAnne Dlamini... but especially to you, You Magazine. You like Photoshop so much? Well I've got a word you can photoshop in front of the YOU, right there on the cover. If you're going to commit to a cause, especially this one, commit. Without inverted commas.

Drop A Brick is a nonprofit Indiegogo project that encourages you to buy an eco-friendly rubber brick filled with hydro-gel that expands 200 times its size when water is added. Putting the brick in the cistern will displace just under 2 litres of water, saving about 190 litres a week for a family of four. Imagine how much water we could save if every one of us did this in SA? So go on, head to your toilet and drop a brick. Heck, drop one in every toilet you see.
Looks like the Christian Bale is set to play the Apple founder in an upcoming bio pic (sorry Ashton), and even though it's a long time away, Conan already has the trailer. Obviously.

Meet Jenna. She's 19 and she's inviting the whole country to her 21st birthday party. To attend, all you have to do is register as an organ donor. Why? Jenna needs lungs and the more people sign up, the better Jenna’s chances of being at her own 21st are. Sure, this is a very, very clever ad campaign, but don't look at it for that. Look at it as a chance to really help people. Jenna is really sick, as are thousands and thousands of other people. An increase in organ donors could help everyone on the waiting list.. Visit the campaign at www.getmeto21.com or follow the hashtags #getmeto21 and share the hell out of it. One donor can save seven lives. Spread the message and see how many you can help save.
Grumpy cat, watch out. This tiny ball of fur is out to claim the Internet for her own. Her name is Toast. She's a rescue. Most of her teeth had to be removed, so her tongue slips out all the time. Which has made her an Internet sensation. Check out her Toast Meets World Instagram and blog for more cuteness overload.
