• This 1980s Windows 386 promo video starts slow, but just wait til the nice woman starts singing. (link, thanks to Jocelyn McCanles)
• A Canadian man is selling ad space on his prosthetic leg. Which is so ironic, it twists my brain into a mushy pretzel. (link)
• Shitty film director Brett Ratner is becoming a brand consultant. Not coincidentally, I've decided to launch my own brand consultancy with this bullet point. (link)
• Bad ad headline of the week. (link)
• Headline translated, copy not. Fuck cultural sensitivity. (link)
• HBO set up voting booths in Union Square to promote the movie Recount. (link)

• BK UK introduces the burger six-pack. (link)
• The best use of lighting on a Lotto billboard. (link)
• 1960s anti-drug pamphlet trippy, funny. (link)
Chloë Sevigny Uniqlo ad harshly tagged. In Williamsburg! The indignity! (link)

And just a note...that "untranslated" ad:

The headline is in Tagalog, a language of the Philippines, where most people do understand English. It's really not uncommon to have a bi-lingual ad like this.
