MINI's cheeky Halloween costume

Every year on October 31, people celebrate Halloween by dressing up in costumes. TAXI 2 thought there was no better time to capitalise on the cheeky nature of the MINI brand – and created a MINI costume for other cars to dress up in. In a guerrilla effort, TAXI 2 created and built a one-size-fits-all MINI costume, hit the streets, and for the first time, allowed cars to feel the same sense of playfulness that people feel when they dress up.

1 Day away - A Movember update from Google Chrome!

One day before it's officially MOVEMBER!

Tonight, I bring you a Movember update from Google Chrome!

"Every November since 2004, the Movember movement has rallied moustache growers around the world to sprout facial hair and take to the web to fight cancer. 

The Movember movement was started in Melbourne, Australia, by a small group of guys determined to spark conversation and education of cancers that affect men. News and photos of their moustache-growing movement spread throughout the web, rapidly transforming the campaign into an annual effort involving over 1.1 million "Mo Bros" and "Mo Sistas" across the globe.

Happiness for the day: Coca Cola's "The Great Happyfication"

Sharing some HAPPINESS from Coke today! Enjoy!

"The Coca-Cola Company's newest installment of the Happiness Factory series - The Great Happyfication.
A rollicking six-minute anthem that distills the secrets of happiness into five toe-tapping lessons."

"A longtime champion of happiness, Coca-Cola has always tried to express a refreshingly positive view of the world, bringing us, among others, 'Enjoy Life' (1924), the creation of the Coca-Cola Santa Claus (1931), and more recently 'Open Happiness' (2009). The latest instalment of the Emmy & TIME nominated Happiness Factory series, The Great Happyfication is an all-singing, all-dancing six-minute animation that distills the secrets of happiness.

'The brief was huge. We wanted to make the happiest 6 and a half minutes in film. No half measures. We also wanted to get the world singing the Coca-Cola 5 notes,' says Jonathan Mildenhall, VP Global Advertising Strategy + Content Excellence of Coca-Cola. 'I am absolutely delighted with the work from W+K, Psyop and Human. This is a partnership that has steered the direction of Happiness Factory for the last six years. In truth the work just keeps on getting better and better. Rather like drinking a bottle of ice cold Coke, you just never want it to end.'

Created by the people who brought you the Happiness Factory, advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam, animation and design studio Psyop and music company Human, the Great Happyfication is set across the epic landscapes of said Factory. Viewers are guided through the film by narrator Pete, a wham-bam-magic-man, and Wendy, the most enthusiastic cheerleader you will ever meet, meeting a glamorous trio of penguins, kissy puppies and a mortar man along the way.

Mark Bernath, Executive Creative Director at Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam comments 'Coke doesn't want to keep all of its formulas a secret. In fact, when it comes to how to be happy, the brand is more than ready to sing from the rooftops about it. We created The Great Happyfication as a musical celebration of the tenets of happiness, and we hope people feel good just from watching it.'

Launched at the World of Coca-Cola attraction in Atlanta in June, the Great Happyfication will premiered on the global stage on Facebook at 3pm GMT / 10am EDT today to over 34 million of Coca-Cola’s Facebook fans, and will be supported by seeding and social media."

Microsoft "Dog .PPT" PowerPoint commercial

Love this new one from Microsoft!

Dolce + Gabbana "The One" commercial, featuring Scarlett Johansson

Ooooh lalalalalala...

Dolce + Gabbana's
"The One"

"Dolce + Gabbana presents the new uncut The One film, revealing the provocative yet effortless femininity of the eternal diva. Directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino and starring Scarlett Johansson."

Music: 'A Place in the Sun' by Franz Waxman, performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra

Here are some older ads for "The One"

"This new era in the story of the one is once again captured by revered fashion photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino. His muse, and the unforgettable embodiment of the one, is Scarlett Johansson. A global icon, Scarlett fascinates audiences with her unique blend of beauty, charm and palpable intelligence. The original soundtrack for the advertisements was composed by the illustrious Italian composer Ennio Morricone: a haunting tribute to the enduring impression made by the one woman."

"Rose The One"

"A chameleon before the camera, the actress's off-screen identity is characterised by a resolute sense of self. Here is a woman who knows her own mind and revels in it. For rose the one she displays a more innocent and girlish side of the diva. Commenting on the campaign, Scarlett observes: Mr Dolce, Mr Gabbana, and Jean Baptiste Mondino have brought to life such an inspiring vision of femininity with rose the one. They capture all of a womans graces, our quiet moments. That, to me, is what makes this campaign so special, and it feels wonderful to have been part of the collaboration."

Thanks for the tip AdWeek!
