Like it or not, today there is only one big story: the royal wedding. Here in France, all eyes were turned to the royal couple. So, in honor of this festive day, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite ephemera created in honor of this event.
My personal favorite is the T-Mobile’s royal parody
of the viral smash Jill and Kevin’s Big Day.
(Ok some of the impersonators are less convincing than others — Prince Charles in particular)
English beer brand John Smith’s has added it’s own unique twist to the collectible plate category of royal wedding collectible plates, by designing collectible paper plates (designed by TBWA\London).
And for all of you out there who’ve had enough of the build up to the wedding, well, then there are sick bags.
Long live the kitsch!
Seen on Rob Schwartz’s Metal Potential is the Spanish promotion of the the PS3 Game of DC Universe Online. This game allows players to choose between being a superhero or a supervillan, they can even design
own costumes. For lucky Spanish players, they were also able to have their costumes made to measure! For the launch in Spain, a specialized tailor, directed by Mr Lee allowed players to get their made-to-measure super suits! Players simply made an online appointment (see below video en espanol). Not bad!
Right now, I am enjoying beautiful, sunny weather in Paris. However, I just saw on the AdFreak blog a great advertising idea for an ideal rainy day activity: the Aquarium. Fresh Green Ads, a so-called “green media company” created a sidewalk ad for the Aquarium in the Dutch city of Scheveningen. What’s unique about this ad, is that the image and message (reading “sea life never lets you go”) appear only when it rains. What a great idea!
Thank you Claire Marine Dormet, who posted this fantastic video on Facebook (see above). In Argentina, Budweiser decided to reconcile soccer, pool and clubbing, in one fantastic, oversized sport!
Very similar to an operation done by Budweiser in Ireland last year.
