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.

Meat and Cheese Packaging That Tells You The Part of The Animal You’re Getting

When shopping for meat at the supermarket, it’s easy enough to grab whatever the “Manager’s Special” is, and to not pay much attention to exactly what parts you’re buying.

Corella, a small meat and cheese store in Spain, commissioned Fauna to rethink their brand. With fun and education in mind, the minimalist packaging provides a handy diagram of what part of the animal you’ll be buying.

Even the cheeses will make you smarter. Just in case you didn’t know the type of animal it comes from from, and where on its body. Perhaps sometimes it’s best not to know.

The United Steaks of America, An Interactive Map of Each US States’ Official Meat

united-steaks-of-america

It’s no secret that ‘Merica loves its meat. So… Why do only four States in the Union — Louisiana, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Texas — claim an animal-based food item as their official State fare?

L.V. Anderson over at Slate looks to fix this atrocious oversight, with The United Steaks of America. The interactive map shows an awesome and complete disregard for “official” State foods — placing in its stead, an unofficial meat for each.

Check it out, and see if they got your States’ meat-of-choice correct. Foodiggity, based in New Jersey, would argue that Taylor Ham should be our State meat. South Jerseyans can then argue that it should be “Pork Roll.” Nonetheless… Check out the fully-operational map here.
