RTE takes lead from Nile TV

State-run station rejects new Newstalk TV ad after taking a leaf out of Nile TV’s book and rejecting anything that doesn’t toe the party line! The new TV ad from Newstalk is a continuation of their hard hitting outdoor campaign and again carries the “Get the news without the State-run spin” message which is presumable why RTE have refused to air the TV ad in its current form.

New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation

An expanding, grody pink blob that takes over a suburban home and eventually smashes through the windows in this spot by Colenso BBDO for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

The agency also created an installation in downtown Auckland, with an initially tiny blob growing so large it blocked the street. Local white-collar types didn’t seem to mind, and the well-intentioned stunt made the nightly news, drawing attention to the cause.

The New Zealand campaign successfully treads the middle ground: It’s “wacky” enough to catch viewers’ attention and slightly sinister, emphasizing that early detection can avert problems before they grow out of all proportion.

Google Wave teams up with Tarantino

Still not sure what this whole Google Wave thing is about?

Although there’s at least one really good video that breaks down the socially collaborative e-mail app, none does it as entertainingly than this one, which incorporates the “Big Kahuna” scene from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 masterpiece Pulp Fiction.
