Candy Crush Nails

candy-crush-nails

Candy Crush — the game that you probably just looked away from to read this article — is getting creative with advertising.

Apparently, extreme nails are a popular form of advertising in Japan — so Candy Crush recruited a known human billboard named Harutamu, and gave her a candy-laden set of nails.

Although, it doesn’t appear that Candy Crush needs any more advertising than what shows up unwarranted in your Facebook feed. Either way, you can go back to playing now, and thanks for listening.

LEGO Kit Kat Bar

Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat LEGO set. It seems that everyone is getting immortalized in LEGO form these days [fingers crossed]. So it only makes sense that one of the best candy bars ever gets recreated using toy bricks.

A few members of Nestlé’s marketing team recently created an entire LEGO set. It starts out as a giant packaged Kit Kat, but encourages you to break it apart to form other LEGO creations.

The Kit Kat LEGO set is not actually available for purchase. In the meantime, make whatever you want with any red and brown bricks you have laying around the house.

The Conversation Heart Piñata Cake

Poor conversation hearts… So iconic, yet so inedible. However, if you stuff a bunch of them inside a giant version made of cake — suddenly they’re pretty awesome.

Brought to us by Beth Jackson from Hungry Happenings, the Conversation Heart Piñata Cake is a giant request to “Be Mine.” And, it’s filled with little hearts that’ll help keep the conversation going all night long. Amirite?

This Photo of M&Ms Does Not Use Photoshop

original

Adobe Photoshop is an indispensable creative tool. But the digital manipulation software, when in the wrong hands, can be used for pure evil — such as for blackmailing purposes, or to make a celebrity or model look like they’re completely made from plastic.

So, it’s good to see someone bypass Photoshop completely — instead using good old-fashioned photo technique and creativity. Take this photo of M&Ms by Patrick on Flickr. It would be easy to pass the image off as an abuse of the rubber stamp tool and various filters. However, it’s nothing more than a bowl of candies under a glass covered in water droplets.

Famous Art Museums Recreated With Candy

Guggenheim Museum, New York. Icing, gingerbread, cotton candy, candy wrappers, licorice, sugar.

Finally, art that everyone can get into… Unless you’re diabetic. A few famous art museums from around the world were recreated by artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves, using various forms of gingerbread and candy.

Constructed and then photographed in black and white — the museums look real enough, that you’ll want to walk right in and get cultured. Or just chew on the walls.
