Automotive ad of the day. THE BMW M2 – EYES ON GIGI HADI

PSA of the day. The First Kiss. Safely Home

WARNING: Not for sensitive or young viewers. When you choose not to wear your seatbelt, it is not just your own life you are putting at risk. In a crash, unbuckled passengers become wrecking balls, and kill or permanently disable other people in the vehicle. Not wearing a seatbelt is against the law, regardless of where you are sitting, front or back. More importantly, buckling up is the right thing to do, for you, for your family, and for your friends. And because road deaths and serious injuries are costing South Africa R306b each year, and helping to keep millions in poverty, it is also the right thing to do for your community and for your country. So please buckle up, and #BeTheChange you want to see on South Africa's roads. No seatbelt, no excuse.

Egocentric stuff of the day. The Social Ego RXM Creative

The Social Ego is a toy that connects to your social channels, inflating when you get attention and deflating when you don’t. 
While it was created by a handful of people, it is inspired by our collective struggle as a species in dealing with social media. 
If enough people like it, it might inflate its way to the shelves.

The Social Ego is a project by RXM Creative

Social stuff of the day. Give Me a Heart - Campaign Video

During DonateLife Month, we are launching the "Give Me A Heart" Instagram campaign, which features portraits of actual men, women and children who are on the heart transplant waiting list.

Visit the @donatelifeamerica page on Instagram to see the campaign, and make sure you're a registered donor at


When an Instagram user likes a photo of a person on the waiting list, the heart icon appears directly over their existing heart. On promoted posts, the users are then instantly directed to the national Donate Life registry, where registering to be a donor only takes a minute.

"90% of people support organ donation, but only 52% are actually registered. Our hope is that this Instagram campaign will start to close that gap, as well as raise awareness about the importance of and critical need for transplants in the U.S.," saidDavid Fleming, Donate Life America's President and CEO. "Some people featured in the campaign have been on the waiting list for hundreds of days, even several years. Others will not get a second chance at life - on average, 22 people die everyday because an organ is not available in time."

To help amplify the campaign, Donate Life America, with the help of agency partner Ogilvy & Mather Chicago, and photographerRandal Ford, created a heart-wrenching video explaining the initiative in depth. A link to the campaign video can be found here:

"We are proud to partner with Donate Life America on this campaign," said Joe Sciarrotta, Ogilvy & Mather Chicago Chief Creative Officer. "This is the first time they've really leveraged the full power of social media. And by taking a simple action that over 300 million people do everyday on Instagram, we're making giving a heart mean so much more than just liking a photo. It literally means giving a heart."

Follow @donatelifeamerica on Instagram to see all the portraits of those on the heart transplant waiting list. And to find out more about Donate Life America or to become a donor yourself, go to
