7-Eleven Election.

14 Oct

This is really interesting, 7-eleven is offering two versions of their coffee cups. Both representative of support for McCain or Obama with their respective party colors. By simply choosing one coffee cup or another you are casting a vote that the convenience store actually keeps track off online nationwide and by state. And it seems the past companies results were in line with the past two presidential elections. Definitely food for thought.

“The Santa Monica ad agency RPA cut half-inch grooves into a quarter-mile stretch of Avenue K, in the exurban L.A. desert city of Lancaster. The grooves were synched in such a way that driving over them at precisely 55mph caused Rossini’s “William Tell Overture” — a.k.a. the Lone Ranger theme — to echo in the air around you.”

It has since been repaved, but not before some people had some musical fun!

Brilliant British Hovis bread ad.

“Fittingly, the 2008 advertisement features a new delivery boy and route — one that winds through time as well as space. Directed by a rising star named Ringan Ledwidge,the commercial kicks off in 1886, and takes 122 seconds (an eternity in advertising terms) to move through every ensuing decade. We see women’s-rights prostesters, world wars, and a coronation, as well as striking miners, mods and rockers, and the millennial celebration. Filmed in Liverpool over the course of six days, with a cast of 762 extras, the ad packs more of a punch than most two-hour movies can muster.”
