Mark lives in IKEA

My boss sent me this and suggested I post it here so therefore I'm going to post about it.

By the way, Rule #1 for you college students: In the future, when your boss suggests you do something, it's a good idea to do what he or she suggests.

Mark Malkoff, a comedian who works for the Colbert Report, is living in IKEA for a week. My boss said that this is brilliant and cost-effective marketing because all they have to do is allow him permission to film and post on youtube and give away some products.

I'm going to have to agree with him.

Two musical Jeep ads

Compare this recent German made Jeep commercial with a recent American made Jeep commercial.

Agency: KNSK- Hamburg, Germany

Agency: BBDO Detroit?

Which one do you like better and why?

I like the German commercial as it gets away from the "winding road and tight cockpit shot required by the client" formula that all American car commercials seem to require.
