Tattly: Unfugly Temporary Tattoos



Cuuuute! (Although I imagine the total population of Gen Y who a.) can be arsed designing their own flippant, ironic, pop culture referencing temporary tattoo but wouldn't b.) actually get inked is about 7. Good luck to the folks at Tattly anyway...)

We Should Have Seen This Coming: Popstar Trishii










Scene kids have discovered ganguro. FYI Wikipedia describes ganguro as as "an alternative fashion trend of blonde or orange hair and tanned skin among young Japanese women that peaked in popularity around the year 2000."


Kids, if the nerds who write Wikipedia entries think that something stopped being cool over a decade ago, incorporating this aesthetic into your look is just sloppy TBH. I expect more from you. 


Anyway, this style atrocity appears to be spearheaded by Popstar Trishii, who appears to be an actual gangur-emo living out her dream of YouTube stardom. She has a Facebook Page, so she obvs legit, and fashion sense aside, I think you'll agree she's quite a talent!

Deception & Fraud Alert: My Little Pony Friendship Is Tragic

Creating a promo to get people to watch your TV show which leads the viewer to squeal with delight because she believes there is an amazing new My Little Pony iPhone app is WRONG, UNKIND & INCREDIBLY DOUCHEBAG-LIKE.

My Little Ponies and my iPhone are my two favourite things in the world and you just used them against me. You wouldn't create a spot which led Americans to believe Jesus was at their front door with a Big Mac just to sell them more french fries, and I DEMAND to be afforded the same respect.

SPOILER ALERT: IT'S ALL LIES

FINALLY: Computers That Can Do My Job

Is that the revival of the fabled ad agency long lunch tradition I hear stirring?

Today, Twitter has repaid me my hours of wasted time, sending two revolutionary tools through the tubez that will not just save time at work, but allow me to basically phone that shit in.

Firstly thanks @bec_purser (& the delightfully named @Boothy) for this hadouken of effectiveness: Wheel of Concept. Just type in the brand name that has you stumped, spin the wheel, and watch this ideas engine choose from literally eight possible digital strategy solutions to best harness influencers and release the brandcuffs on bleeding-edge high-engagement content marketing.

Allow WoC to demonstrate. Sure, there is already a thriving community of My Little Pony fans on the internet, but are they of any use to Hasbro? Possibly not, unless they are planning a strategic partnership with Wu-Tang Clan or strategic tie-in the Human Centipede sequel. That's why the Wheel says: START A NEW ONE! My digital radar says this will be the post-Facebook "Google+ Killer," but only time will tell.


Stage two of the Hasbro digital offensive will be a crowdsourcing campaign which targets influencers

Inaugural S'Pony Creative Surcharge Awards Grand Prix Winner: Osvaldo Polletti



After explaining to my father the concept of 'cakage,' mum googled what the 10% Rompepalle surcharge could be. It's basically a tithe on arseholes. Genius.

Oh & try the rotolo.

B4UAsk: Haha - no we didn't get charged. Osvaldo Polletti on Foursquare.

Transformares 3: Dark of the Nightmare Moon

I take back everything I said about Transformers being an outrageously shaky premise to build one, let alone three films on. I had no idea Shia LaHoof was starring and it was directed by Michael Neigh!! #boom #fucking #tish
