Kmart: Jingle Bell Junk


Looks like Kmart is giving the NBA a run for their money! Who knew we would spend the holidays trying to find the most creative way to play a holiday tune! I'll have to post the NBA version as a follow up but in the meantime here is a group of guys swaying their sacks as a cross-promotion with Joe Boxer. Pretty catchy...yes but more importantly what did you think?

Cute baby vs. Motion Sync vacuum cleaner


When in doubt put a baby in it?  Looks like that happened here with Samsung's Motion Sync vacuum cleaner.  This commercial features a rudely awoken baby that chases the vacuum cleaner around the house looking to get some sweet revenge.  The highlight certainly has to be the bite sized mustache but in terms of anything else I didn't really get much.  Wasn't I supposed to leave this wanting the vacuum?

How to remove connections on LinkedIn!

I seem to get asked this question quite often.  It really isn't talked about much and to be fair, LinkedIn doesn't do a great job of making it obvious to the user.  So, as part of my new blog series, I want to provide answers to some of the questions that I get asked and to those questions that I want answers to!  Without wasting any more of your time, here goes...


How to remove a LinkedIn connection:

1)  Hover over "Contacts" and click "Connections"

2)  Click "Remove Connections"

3)  Select the contacts you wish to remove and then click "Remove Connections"

That's it!  I hope that helps answer your question!

GasBuddy Dot Com Review



My new favorite app is here!  I'm sure I'm pretty late to the game but either way I still thought it was worth sharing.  The other day I was in desperate need for gas when I realized I didn't have enough Giant Gas Points to get me a solid discount from Shell.  So...I went to the App Store and downloaded GasBuddy.  The great thing about it was that it was so easy to use.  Better yet, it sorts out all the gas stations by price so you can always find the cheapest location nearby! The other thing I found particularly useful was that it gave you gas prices for regular, midgrade, premium, and diesel gas.  If you haven't already, go ahead and download GasBuddy!  Do you have any favorite travel apps?  If you do, I would love to hear about them!  Leave me a comment with some of your favorites.

Never Say No To Panda Cheese


Never ever say NO to Panda!  Hahah...probably one of the greatest commercials out there.  This thing is fantastic.  If you're the kind of person who loves very subtle humor, this is it right here.  This particular series of commercials was produced in Egypt by Advance Marketing for Arab Dairy, the manufacturers of Panda Cheese.  The commercial features a giant panda who torments people for wanting to try the deliciousness that is Panda Cheese.  The video below is a compilation of all the Panda commercials and certainly features enough amusement for an entire day!  Personally, I would have to say my favorite bit is when the hospital patient turns down the Panda Cheese and the camera slowly pans to the Panda disconnecting the IV.  Love it.  What about you?  What was your favorite bit?

IKEA 'Playin' With My Friends'


IKEA has come out with a new campaign called “Entertaining” in the U.K. and Ireland. The spot “stars a group of kids and their wacky friends—an enormous stuffed bear, a giant toy robot, a life-size action figure, and others—preparing a dinner party in an IKEA kitchen while dancing to [a] goofy song” (AdWeek). Mother London, the agency behind the campaign, claims that the spot “explores the insight that adults and children all behave better when they're sat around the same table together, rather than the children being sat at the end of the table"(AdWeek). A very heart warming spot from our favorite company from Sweden. Now…if only they could make building their furniture a little less complicated!

Marlboro Special Blend

Originally seen on Shadow Aspect, I couldn't help but post this.  As I'm sure you are very well aware cigarettes are quite expensive, yet,  people continue to buy them for whatever reason! What better way to advertise the high cost of smoking than emulating the dollar bills you are literally inhaling! Very clever!  What do you think?

It doesn't take a genius.

"Samsung's new press ad arguably promotes the iPhone 5 pretty well."

Nike Jogger: Find Your Greatness


Nothing like obesity to strike a conversation of both hatred and praise.  Nike's "Find Your Greatness" campaign was a huge hit during the Olympics even if they weren't a sponsor!  There were a number of different spots but the one that seemed to get under peoples skin was the one featuring Nathan Sorrell, dubbed by some as the "fat kid" running down the street.  

There isn't anything particularly special,  it's just him running.  What makes it really good, is the voice over.  You wouldn't think this would be that big of a problem, but I suppose a lot of people are getting upset that Nike is exploiting this kid for the simple purpose of selling shoes.  I wouldn't necessarily say they are exploiting him, but sorry, they're a business, and it's their job to sell a product.  And come one now, hasn't Nike had some far worse business practices in the past for us to worry about?  

Here we are spending time hating on Nike and this poor kid, but why aren't we praising them for tackling the issue of obesity head on.  None of their competitors are doing it, they took a risk and it paid off.  Big time.  Nathan on the other hand, we should be showing him nothing but kindness.  This guy had all the courage in the world to film a commercial of him recognizing that he has a problem and that he hopes to try fix it by whatever means possible.  That right there is pretty bold.

At the end of the day, if you still don't like the commercial, then direct all your frustration at Nike.  For those who haven't seen it yet, check it out and as always remember to leave your comments below!
