A new fashion-flavored campaign is putting a new spin on the idea of a full-body condom.
To prove how comfortable its proprietary non-latex material really is, condom brand Skyn decided to create a line of athletic wear, and put it to the test.
A smoky, sultry 1:30 ad from Sid Lee Amsterdam features tech-infused clothing designer Pauline von Dongen describing her approach to the project, including dragonfly-wing-inspired flaps on the arms of a shirt, which can supposedly give a long jumper more, um, lift.
The shoe giant Nike recently created the fastest commercial ever advertising their newest Zoom Air sneakers. the spot features some of the world’s best athletes doing what they do best at lightning speed. That lightning speed is demonstrated via time lapse video technology of course. Let me know what you think of the spot down below.
The spot was created courtesy of an agency with one of the funniest names I’ve ever heard of “Must Be Something” also based out of Portland. Being in close proximity to your client must provide extra incentive to produce outstanding work. Anyway, let me know what you guys think of the commercial that incidentally takes a minute and 30 not the traditional 30 seconds.
Some of the athletes featured include:
Kobe Bryant: 5-time NBA champion (basketball)
Wayne Rooney: 3-time England player of the year (soccer)
Richard Sherman: Super Bowl champion (football)
Marlen Esparza: Olympic bronze Medalist (boxing)
Odell Beckam Jr.: Offensive rookie of the year (football)
Rafael Nadal: 14-Time Grand Slam champion (tennis)
Serena Williams: 20-Time Grand Slam champion (tennis)
Marcus Mariota: 2nd overall NFL draft pick (football)
Katarina Johnson Thompson: 2014 world No. 1, heptathlon (track and field)
Shane O’Neill: Pro Skater (skateboarding)
Mo Farah: Olympic Gold Medalist: 5,000M/10,000M (track and field)
Allyson Felix: Olympic Gold Medalist: 200M/4x100M/4x400M (track and field)
Shelly-Anne Fraser-Pryce: Olympic gold medalist,100M (track and field)
I want to see the movie United Passions last night and contrary to my earlier point it turned out to be an awesome movie. The feature is the docudrama about the history and development of FIFA. Featured below is the trailer that I’m sure most of you seen already, but wait there is more. The two production companies are Leuviah Films & Thelma Films and they received a majority of their funding from FIFA.
FIFA has full control over production and used it to make themselves seem like one of the greatest organizations in the world. What I don’t understand is why are people mad at them for this? FIFA is a business and it has an obligation to steak holders. Is there corruption? Probably. but I mean really, what do you expect? There is big money involved.
And nobody can deny that FIFA is responsible for spreading the beautiful game throughout the world.
NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo joins in the fun of American commercialism. In this commercial for insurance company Geico, Mutombo does the thing that he made into an art form during his NBA career “block.” Mutombo blocks people’s shots in various real life situations. For example, he blocks a business executive’s shot away from the trash can, a college coeds laundry is on the floor instead of the laundry basket, a 10-year old kids’ cereal is swatted all over the grocery store, all because Mutombo is so enthusiastic doing what he loves, “blocking.” All the while repeating some of his more memorable catch phrases such as “Not in my house” in his very unique accent.
