Cruzan Rum "Welcome to The Don't Hurry" commercial, and more!

VACATION ANYONE?
I'm ready to slow my roll!

"Cruzan Rum welcomes you to tour The Don't Hurry, where every minute 
lasts 64 seconds and monkeys occasionally give deep-tissue massages."

"A beach, waves and a large turtle pulling a tiny wagon full of rum. 
What more could you possibly ask for?"

"The official spokesparrot of The Don't Hurry shows the world how to 
slow down, chill out and occasionally nod off in mid-sentence."

"Welcome to The Don't Hurry, where the rum flows freely 
and even elevator music gets those hips gyrating slowly."


"One man, one glass of rum, and one minute that lasts 64 seconds."

(Hat tip to AdFreak)

Volt: Silent Anthem
"With the Chevrolet Volt, gas and electricity have come together to create a new driving experience. It's the best of both worlds - an extended-range car, with electric when you want it, and gas when you need it."

"The Chevrolet Spark has a color palate inspired by some of the best and brightest colors the world has to offer. No matter what you're style, there's a Spark for you."


2014 Chevy Impala: The Classic is Back
"How does a legend that runs more than 50 years deep become the pinnacle of style, innovation and performance for the next generation? The answer lies in the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala. Once you step in to the Impala, you'll know what it's like to turn heads everywhere you go."


Theophilus London: Chevy Sonic Milk Run
"The Sonic and Theophilus London can make even running errands epic. See the lengths Theo goes to to find milk and quench his cereal craving."


Find New Roads Anthem
"Introducing the new Chevrolet. With the best lineup of vehicles ever, we believe ingenuity can do the impossible. So why just go from A to B when imagination can take you everywhere?"

The Guardian: "Women in military" (Outdoor - BBH NY)


Description from AdsoftheWorld:

"The outdoor ad campaign uses the illustrations of Noma Bar to depict both sides of a core political debate in the US: individual freedom versus government regulation. These illustrations will appear at key locations in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco as outdoor ads and mobile billboards. Each illustration represents one side of an issue; when flipped it cleverly illustrates the opposite view."



"People are encouraged to take a photo of the side they support and upload the photo to Instagram and/or Twitter using the hashtag #VoiceYourView. A microsite (guardiannews.com/VoiceYourView) will capture submissions and track votes on all the issues. The site will also include Guardian articles to introduce readers to open journalism and the Guardian as a whole."

Kit Kat: Free No-WiFi Zone Ambient


"The world is becoming one big WiFi zone. It’s available in bars, restaurants, trains, airports, supermarkets.. There’s even WiFi on Mount Everest. Result? People are constantly online. Time for a break. So we created a Free No-WiFi Zone. In a radius of 5 meters, we blocked all signals so people could escape e-mails, updates, tags or likes. Instead, they could enjoy a good old newspaper or a hardcover book. Some even had a real conversation. Whilst eating a Kit Kat of course."

Saw this last night toward the end of Mad Men... 
LOVE IT!

Also, if you haven't seen this (below)... watch it now!

Today, that man is physicist and cookie-part preferrer David Neevel. Watch him operate the machine he created that separates OREO cookies."

"Think Blue" Volkswagen "Baby" commercial


"A new advert to demonstrate our fuel-saving Start/Stop technology - which automatically switches off the car's engine when stationary available across the Volkswagen range.  Visit volkswagen.co.uk/thinkblue to find out more.

It follows the story of a loving father as he drives his baby around late at night to try and get him to sleep. It seems to work, but there's one thing Dad didn't count on; Volkswagen Start/Stop Technology.  

Every time he stops at a traffic light, the Volkswagen Tiguan's engine automatically cuts out, causing our baby to wake up and start crying. When the lights turn green, the engine hums back into life and the baby drifts happily back to sleep.

It ends with the Tiguan pulling up next to a Golf with another father having a similar problem. The fathers empathise and the ad concludes with a reassurance that at least drivers will save money on fuel.  

Start/Stop Technology. Available across the range. Another way to Think Blue"

"A Boy And His Atom: The World's Smallest Movie" from IBM


"You're about to see the movie that holds the Guinness World Records™ record for the World's Smallest Stop-Motion Film. The ability to move single atoms — the smallest particles of any element in the universe — is crucial to IBM's research in the field of atomic memory. But even nanophysicists need to have a little fun. In that spirit, IBM researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope to move thousands of carbon monoxide molecules (two atoms stacked on top of each other), all in pursuit of making a movie so small it can be seen only when you magnify it 100 million times. A movie made with atoms. Learn more about atomic memory, data storage and big data at ibm.com/madewithatoms"
