‘Agency Scoops’ Imagines If Ad Agencies Were Ice Cream Flavors


Want a taste of advertising? Agency Scoops is a fun Tumblr project that imagines some of the best ad agencies in the world as ice cream flavors.

The pints were created to represent companies such as Ogilvy, BBDO, 360i, and McCann. The branding for each carton is inspired by a few of the agencies’ most recognizable brands. Just hand me a pint of BBDO and a spoon.

A Billboard That Dispenses Beer Is The Best Form of Advertising


Recently, Coca-Cola unleashed a billboard that doubled as a soda fountain, dispensing its product to thirsty passersby.

Carlsberg, trying to one-up the soft-drink king, has created an outdoor ad that serves beer via a convenient ground-level tap. And, as we all know, if a beverage is gonna flow from a giant poster, we’ll take beer over sugar-water any day.

Appropriately-labeled, “Probably the best poster in the world,” the billboard was recently unveiled at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London.

Coca-Cola Made A Drinkable Billboard


The problem with most billboards, is that they almost never dispense their product to passersby. Coca-Cola has found a way to change all of that, and created a drinkable billboard.

The outdoor ad for Coke Zero is outfitted with an enormous straw running 4,500 feet, from a bottle filled with soda, down to a dispensing fountain at ground level.

The “drinkable billboard” was installed at White River State Park in Indianapolis, site of this year’s Final Four.

Ad Agency Looking For ‘Fresh Meat’ Makes An Awesomely Insane Recruitment Video


For those lucky enough to have ever worked in advertising, then you were once an adorable know-nothing plebe, known by industry insiders as “fresh meat.”

So, when agency Mother New York decided that the value of fresh meat in the office warranted a recruitment video, they did not disappoint. Taking the term a bit literally, and bat-shit crazily, the agency takes us on a psychedelic romp through pounds of the raw, the cooked, and the tubed meats as a recruitment tool.

The accompanying soundtrack appears to be sung by an employee, with the type of enthusiasm and dead-eyes that only come from former fresh-meat/currently charred veterans. Application deadline is April 24th, meat.

Although, we don’t care how tired mom is… Hamburger Helper ain’t happening.
