There have been many instances in movies, clothing and other animal related activity that have walked a fine line in “insulting” PETA. However, this time PETA may be the ones crossing that line. Or are they?
A new ad from PETA has raised many eyebrows. Jessica, the star of the spot is walking home in a neck brace and “suffers from BWVAKTBOOM, ‘Boyfriend Went Vegan and Knocked the Bottom Out of Me,’ a painful condition that occurs when boyfriends go vegan and can suddenly bring it like a tantric porn star.”
Sure, they may be promoting the fact that a clean vegan diet can raise your libido but is this promoting domestic abuse? It’s an interesting take on a serious matter. Especially a group so involved with ending abuse to animals. What do you think?

First off, Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!
Being the ad geek that I am – my boyfriend often shares ads and commercials he sees with me if he thinks they’re good. This commercial was on last night and he thought it was a) hilarious and b) probably true.
I googled it this morning, and realized I had seen it during the superbowl. As with a few other companies (H&M, GoDaddy and let us not forget the Sexy and I know it – M&M commercial) we know that the main goal when making a commercial is grabbing the attention of the viewier.
TeleFlora created this ad with Supermodel Adriana Lima. sidenote: that body has had a child and her name is Valentina – how appropriate
Giving the world known advice. “Give and you Shall Receive”
Cute, funny, sexy.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s always a treat going to the movies. With prices these days ($11, unreal) – I take my time in picking the movies I just can’t wait until DVD release. When I leave I often walk slowly and check up on upcoming movie posters. Taking a mental note on something I’ll be looking forward to seeing the trailer for. Usually, what grabs my eye is something simple that you really have to look at to see what movie is. (I know, you get it – I’m a big fan of understated).
However, what are best practices for making these posters? Check out this infographic to see what works!

I’ve always been jealous of people who own dogs that LOVE to swim. I’ve had four dogs in the course of my lifetime and all of them hated going in the water. I’d envy my friends who could throw a tennis ball into a lake or pool and have their dog JOYFULLY jump in after.
Genius Seth Casteel took these shots underwater. Something I’ve never seen done before. The faces are hilarious. Enjoy!

You can’t be a lover of all things Advertising, without giving homage to the heart of the creativity.. the agencies. Usually, these names are taken from the owner. ( ex. Ogilvy & Mather)
What about the ones with a little more..spunk in coming up with a name. AdWeek put together a list of some great and unusual agency names.

You know its a new era when a baby thinks a magazine is a broken iPad.
Watch as an adorable one-year old is trying to flip through a magazine like they’re used to doing with a simple swipe of their little fingers.
