Countdown to Worldcup.

Thursday, January 05, 2006

I'm sure most of you have seen this before.

Adidas has mounted gigantic footballer statues right in the heart of Orchard Road (outside Heeren) in anticipation of the World Cup. The giant footballer statues although faceless; are wearing the national colours sponsored by Adidas. Oh, let's not forget the gigantic boots and the gigantic ball too.

In my opinion, this is a great outdoor ad by Adidas.. erm.. if you can consider this an ad. I think it's going to gain a lot of coverage; word of mouth at least. I've seen tourists taking photos with these statues, heck, Singaporeans too. Giant men and giant ball? Me likey, you? Click the small pics for a larger, clearer image.

Can Shocking Ads Stop Smoking?

Wednesday, January 04, 2006

I got this video from msn, and I quote Matt Lauer from Today; in the video,
The images you are about to see are shocking, some may even say grotesque..
Interestingly, it was mentioned in the video that the ads worked. Even more interestingly, these same ads were shown in Singapore before.


Personally, I don't think the ads worked as much as it did in the US. Why? That's because I THINK we're more aware of the harmful effects of smoking. I'm not saying kids in the US are ignorant (okay.. now I'm saying it.. but guess who are those that thinks Singapore is part of China?), I'm just saying maybe we're more.. sanitized to the idea of gross images; because we see them on cigarette packets itself. Smokers definitely aren't affected as much as non-smokers, because they see it on the packets all the time, so when they see the ad on tv; they automatically switch off (their mind).


For the benefit of those not being able to view the video due to whatever reasons, the series of ads are the one that show a brain being cut open; the arteries being blocked, etc. I'm not sure if the ads worked while they were being shown here. I'll try and get some info and let you guys know whether the ads worked here. Well, if you guys have any info, let me know.

In the mean time, what do you guys think? Can shocking ads stop smoking?

New Year, New Look, New Hope.

I want to wish everyone a very happy new year! May the new year bring even more blessings for all of you! =)

Oh, as you've noticed, I've changed my blog template. Oh alright. I didn't do it all myself. I basically got it from Dlisted (a mad funny blog on celebs), and tried to make everything fit. That's why everything still looks a little funny and off. So, yes, it's a new look. I love it. Let's hope the people at Dlisted aren't too mad and won't make me change back to the old, boring template from blogger.

Oh, and did I say it already? Happy New Year. =)
