Clash of The Condiments, Ketchup vs Ranch

The ongoing debate… Ketchup or Ranch? Recently, a few costumed ruffians sponsored by Hidden Valley finally duked it out for condiment supremacy. During the citywide brawl, ketchup can’t seem to keep up with the speed and reach of the Ranch squeeze bottle, and eventually concedes the match. Then sriracha comes along and delivers a fatal karate kick to the throats of both condiments. I made that last part up, but that would’ve been awesome, and far more accurate a result.

Just remember when using condiments, to always practice safe lunch.

Tackle This Vending Machine, Receive Beer

To cater to the rugby and beer enthusiasts of Northern Argentina, Cerveza Salta and agency Ogilvy & Mather have come up with the Rugbeer machine. The concept behind the interactive vending machine is simple. Patrons attempt a rugby-style takedown on the beer dispenser, and if the machine’s ‘pussy meter’ decides that you’ve applied enough blunt force trauma, you get a beer.

The Rugbeer recently went on tour, and was placed in bars and pubs during rugby matches — even having fake grass placed around it for the full effect. This concept was attempted here in the states — but bar patrons wouldn’t take on the vending machine without a helmet and shoulder pads.*

They’re then topped with a disturbingly realistic brain, made with Lindt white chocolate, painted with cocoa butter.
