Is torture a laughing matter? Obviously not, but humor may be the tool to get people interested in the cause. Interesting…

Amnesty goes funny

As always there is a lot of good stuff in Cannes. I’m not gonna post Grand Prixs, because every one has seen those (I assume..). But here are three other winners that I really like.

Killing Kennedy

It may seem a little flat, but what makes it a winner to me is the flawless design and what seems like a very smooth flow. A very nice experience – and educational!

 

 

The new creatives

This just looks too fucking cool. That’s it. (This is not the Cannes case, but still a nice video – check out the Cannes video here)

 

 

Racer – A Google Chrome experiment
I’ll include this because I love Google Chrome experiments. And it looks like fun.

 

 

3 digital Cannes winners

I have no idea how this will inspire me to make anything related to advertising. But I just hope it does at one point, because it’s just too damn fascinating.

Rope made from plastic bottles

We all knew that (or at least Business Insider told us that earlier this year). But now they’ve done a video to remind us to read the Terms & Conditions.

Tumblr does Terms & Conditions right (still)

An Australian bank turned their ATMs into GAYTMs during a pride event. And then won a Grand Prix in Outdoor at Cannes.

What a wonderful campaign! This is why Cannes is great – it highlights some great work that hopefully inspires others to do great work.

GAY ATMS

This is some weird looking advertising. It got me looking, but it doesn’t really make a lot of sense. But maybe that’s the idea…
