Military ad of the day. Armed Forces Of Ukraine - As One. Invincible. Кожен з нас. Збройні Сили України

"None of us was born for war. But we are all here to protect our freedom."

if you would like to listen to english version, please turn subtitles on at the bottom right corner.   
"Кожен з нас". Національна кампанія на підтримку Збройних сил України.

Жоден з нас не народжений для війни, але всі ми тут зараз, щоб захистити нашу свободу. Проект розповідає про звичайних чоловіків, які щоденно самовіддано виконують свій військовий обов'язок перед Україною. Кожного з них ви могли бачити у парку, зустріти в черзі у магазині або банку, бо не існує людини, яка була б спеціально народженою для війни, та всі ми змушені сьогодні захищати рідну країну.

AdLand stuff of the day. Advertising Insider! — Fake advertising news presented by Dissolve

Dissolve presents Advertising Insider! based on Tweets by @adweak

Fake news has become one of America’s most trusted and beloved institutions, from SNL’s Weekend Update, to the Colbert Report, to the Onion News Network.

These shows cover the big issues and events in society today — but where can an industry professional find reliable fake advertising news?

Enter Advertising Insider!, a new web video series by stock footage company Dissolve, based on Tweets by the parody account @adweak. It addresses important issues facing advertising and digital-media workers today, like coping with know-it-all suits and difficult clients, whether to call yourself a “storyteller” or “narrative ninja,” and honing hashtags that really sing. All told through the tried-and-true medium of oversimplified headlines, quick video edits of attractive people, and authoritative-sounding voiceover.

First-world problems? Undoubtedly. Entertaining? We think so. An effective viral marketing strategy with sick ROI? Only time will tell. Check it out at

To keep up with future Advertising Insider! episodes, follow us on your least-hated social media channel.

Advertising Insider! is a new series based on the Tweets of parody Twitter account @adweak. Covering such breaking issues as know-it-all suits, inflated buzzwords, and even more inflated job titles, Advertising Insider! tells it like it is. Subscribe for more! See and license the clips used:

Follow up of the day. I am Mumbai - Mumbai Mirror

Hated. Not Ignored. 
When truth is spilled out on breakfast tables, every morning, unabashedly asking uncomfortable questions and raising a voice loud enough to be inappropriate for breakfast conversation, it does become unpalatable for a few. 

And a newspaper that believes in filling its pages with nothing but this stark naked truth, chooses to embrace the hatred that follows, almost with gratitude. Because if being hated by a few means change, it is better than being loved by everyone. 

As Mumbai Mirror would rather be effective than comfortable.

Dreamy ad of the day. #BEGINDESIRE: MARTINI Streets of Rome - Full Length

more info about the campaign here and here (in italian)

To begin, you must Desire. Without that, you will achieve nothing. Love nothing. Change nothing. Because DESIRE is what starts it all. You know that feeling, that feeling at the beginning of the evening, when the possibilities sing to you their song of youth, begging you to just begin. 



DESIRE begins night. And the night is yours to love. 
DESIRE begins beauty. And beauty is yours to create. 
DESIRE begins true. And truth is your sword. 
DESIRE begins love. And love… and love is everything. 

Love my friend, is what the night is for, but to get it, to grasp it, to grasp the love, you must let the DESIRE begin. 


DESIRE begins the fire. And you must find it in your heart, and let it burn, let it ignite, let is take you. 

You must have, you must feel, you must know…
