These Quirky ‘Combophotos’ Reveal Surprising Views of the World

From top to bottom, this photo series is very clever. Combophotos, a personal project by Creative Director Stephen McMennamy of BBDO Atlanta, pairs two images in delightfully unexpected ways. Each is sliced horizontally, and combined with a complimentary image: turtles grow helmets in place of shells, people take drinks out of water towers, and a milk jug pours white rope.

#BrandCrush: Who Gives a Crap? This Mail Order Toilet Paper Company.

This week’s #BrandCrush is a seriously different kind of company – they sell toilet paper through the mail. Getting TP delivered to your front door hasn’t exactly gone mainstream (even though there are plenty of options on Amazon), but an Australian company has a business model that’s giving plenty of reasons to do it.

Here are 3 ways the perfectly named Who Gives a Crap is creating an incredible brand, one roll at a time.

5 Amazing Video Ads About Amazingly Boring Things

Just because you sell something super boring doesn’t mean your ads need to be. We rounded up 5 brilliant video spots for some of the most boring and unappealing things. Here’s proof that they can still get TONS of attention with the right talent behind them. Let’s go!

Watch Babies’ Poo Face in Slow Motion. Well Done Pampers.

When your main business is selling diapers, eventually you just have to accept what people are doing with your product. That’s why we love this new ad from Pampers. They know babies make crazy faces when they poop, so their latest ad captures a few doing their business in glorious slow motion. Juxtaposed against Strauss’ epic composition “Thus Spake Zarathustra,” this piece had us laughing hysterically. I guess we like potty humor.

Mitch Hedberg Was Very Motivating.

Teamwork. Passion. Success. Keeping motivated in creative fields takes thinking outside the box, being different and standing out from the crowd. Sounds like the surreal work of comic genius Mitch Hedberg and his very unexpected brand of humor. We love these ‘motivational’ posters from Sloshspot, which pull many of his most surreal lines into the cliché black box/one-motivating-word format we’ve come to love (and loath).

TGIF!! Here Are a Bunch of Tiny People Who Are Totally Over It

Oh Friday… what would we do without you? That’s certainly what these tiny people are feeling as they navigate the big world of office life.

Derrick Lin works in advertising, a career he admits can be chaotic and unpredictable. Channeling the challenges of daily work life, he creates miniature scenes of people venting their (and often his) frustrations, then posts them to Instagram and Tumblr. Perhaps you can relate.

Sad Guy Who Won Vacation, Wins Again, Takes Wife and Baby, Has Great Time

You might remember Kevin Blandford from a few months ago. The 34-year-old telecom worker from Louisville, Kentucky won a free vacation to Puerto Rico from his job. The only problem? His baby daughter was too young to make the trip, and his wife stayed home to take care of her. Blandford decided to document his vacation with a series of dour faced photos showing his family he wasn’t having a bit of fun without them.

The hilarious series went viral – so popular that he won himself another, identical, Puerto Rican vacation – this time with the family.

Hilariously Subversive Products and Signs Placed to Entertain Random Customers

For months Jeff Wysaski has been covertly placing fake installations into everyday society. He is the creator of the subversive product remixing project, tumblr site, and sometimes fake company, ‘Obvious Plant’ (just think about that name…). At first glance his work seems like everyday book covers, warning signs or wine recommendations – but take a closer look and the jokes on you.
