Automotive ad of the day. Volkswagen: Tall Girl.


In this ad we follow a tall woman on a series of dates in her quest to find the perfect partner. The problem is that every man she meets is simply too small for her. 

After a number of failed dates with different men, we see her waiting for her next date. He arrives in a Volkswagen up! and our leading lady looks dejected: if he's driving that car, he's probably the shortest man of all, she thinks.

Imagine her surprise and delight when the door opens and out steps a strapping 6'3 hunk of a man! She's finally found true love and a suitably tall companion in the most unlikely of places - the surprisingly spacious Volkswagen up! 

Visit for more information.

Viral of the day. THIS IS WATER - David Foster Wallace.

"In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn't become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we've ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.
We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).

Social campaign of the day. Care Aware - The Impossible Orchestra - Case Study

Care Aware is a campaign spanning short films, a feature length doco, a 24 hour concert, live webstreaming, a dedicated website and a smartphone app aimed at increasing the awareness of the role of carers in Australian society. In conjunction with McCann, Airbag produced this multi-faceted initiative primarily through the stories of 5 carers, shedding light on a diversity of carers that make up the 2.6 million known unpaid carers in Australia. A live event, The Impossible Orchestra 24 hr concert, was the first of its kind, with musicians working tirelessly in recognition of the sheer effort many carers undertake. The concert was live streamed and watched by 44 countries around the globe, and the short films have gone on to win international awards and acclaim.

Music video of the day. Numb – Max Cooper Feat. Kathrin deBoer.

Numb – Max Cooper Feat. Kathrin deBoer from Henning M. Lederer on Vimeo.

Audio /// Max Cooper & Kathrin deBoer / /
More Max Cooper videos ///
Video /// Henning M. Lederer /
What Max says:
"This was a really fun project to work on right the way through. It started with some glitchy beats and a couple of big basslines I was messing around with, with a general idea of a deep but almost overpowering feeling. Kathrin came to my little studio in London and we talked a little about the idea, before she just let go and free-style sang over the loops, using my crappy little test mic I bought for 12 pounds in 2002.
The plan was to lay down some melodic ideas for the vocals, which I could then select, and send back to Kathrin to write lyrics with and re-record properly. But when I ran through everything after I released she'd just nailed it right then and there! All I had to do was layer up some of the multiple instances of her voice, and add my reverbs and widening with some subtle EQing and compression, and it was there - she captured the pure feeling of the music and enhanced it a million times, and I love the free-flowing feeling of it, with it's imperfections and half words, and of course, he subconscious vocal of not feeling any more lead to the title and concise concept for the music.
We knew that we had to get a video made to match Kathrin's work, and I was really excited to find out that Henning M. Lederer, who I had been a big fan of for some time, could do the project. We discussed options together and decided to try a "numbed by the capitalist machine" theme, which he has developed into an amazing, detailed story with a twist. I love the result, I hope it works for you too!"

Social ad of the day. Dove - The Carbon Paper Ad.


The Dove Self Esteem Project has been working for several years on promoting women's self esteem and demystifying the beauty myth. Recently, this mission was extended to children. According to the brand's research, 6 out of 10 girls stopped doing something they love because they felt uncomfortable with their appearance. 
We were asked to introduce the Dove Self Esteem Project in Portugal for the very first time and generate awareness among adults about the impact that their behavior may have on children's self esteem.

We created the carbon paper ad, a press ad in a specialized parenting magazine. The ad challenged readers to test their memory by writing down the worst thing they remember being called in their childhood. To facilitate, we also included a pen. What they didn't know was we had placed a piece of carbon paper underneath the page, and the word they wrote in the memory test would be imprinted on the shirt of a child on the next page with the accompanying text, "Words Mark Children Forever".

The teased readers (mainly parents) saw the result of their action imprinted on a child, just like the words we can "simply" say to children may stick to them, for life. We were able to introduce Dove's Self Esteem Porject goals in Portugal in a more interactive way through a print ad, that actually embodied the project main concern.

Título: Sólo para niños
ANAR Foundation manages in Spain the european unique phone number 116 111, to attend children and teenagers under a risk situation. On this telephone number, only for minors, they can find the help they need in a totally anonymous and confidential way. But, how can we get our message to a child abuse victim, even when they are accompanied by their aggressor?

Knowing the average height for adults and children under 10,GREY has created two different messages. Using an outdoor lenticular we show adults an awareness message, while children see a message where we offer them our help and show them the telephone number. A message only for children.
