Déjà vu of the week. FIAT Body Paint Shoot vs. MAC South Australia vs. Human Motorcycles.

"A behind-the-scenes look at pulling together one of the most complex, ambitious and beautiful body paint photos you've ever seen."

"In a campaign that sets out to change drivers' attitudes to low-level speeding by exposing the community problem that sits at the heart of it, we constructed a crash made up of people. The final image was made possible with the help of Adelaide body paint artist Emma Hack. The shoot took a total of 18 hours, using 17 men and women -- each with up to five layers of paint applied to their bodies."

Slow motion ad of the day. Persil Small & Mighty - For Whatever Life Throws.

Persil has just released its biggest campaign to date, celebrating the resiliency of UK kids. The Unilever brand continues to champion dirt, whilst battling Mums' cynicism that one product alone can defeat grime. The precursor to this was our award winning 'DIRT IS GOOD' campaign that encouraged kids to explore the great outdoors. The new TV spot signifies the re-launch of their 'Small & Mighty' product. The visual spectacle aims to show that Mum has done her best to prepare her children for a world of uncertainty.
