Campaign's Top 10 Surreal Ads

Campaign recently listed their top ten surreal ads online. While most of us will have noted a bit of a surrealist renaissance of late (Rubberduckzilla and the like), the style goes way back - back to the Halcyon days of HHCL (a big agency in the 90's). Here's my favourite of the bunch, it's by TBWA/Chiat/Day (New York) for Skittles...see it HERE in HD!

In other news - I'm making progress on the creative test, my "funny" poem on death is nearly done. I don't think I'll be posting it on here, but some of my answers I might. Also, my first installment (and 2 weeks back payment) of jobseekers allowance went in to my account today which is good. I'm so desperate that I've started applying for voluntary admin work and internships. One PR company already got back to me, but I'm not sure my CV will interest them too much - plus I may have accidentally offended them in an email, 'cos I said their blog had 'gone cold'. It hadn't been updated since January. Oh well.

  1. Hells. You in Sheffield at the moment? Joe and I are heading up there today, so if you're around you can treat me to something using that free money the government is giving you (I get no such luxuries).
