Considering it is the world's lightest 8-inch notebook, it's not totally outlandish to assume it might be able to fit in the pocket of a pair of jeans. But then again, Jimmy Fallon could barely fit it in his jacket pocket, which leads to me believe a pair of my hip hugging jeans would definitely be out of the question. What do you think? Are you more ticked off that it's not small enough to carry in a pocket, or are you peeved that the ad is inaccurate?
If you've ever gone to a pub and ordered yourself a Guinness, you know that there's a bit of waiting involved. The bartender starts to pour your beer, walks away, mixes up several other drinks, comes back pours some more, and eventually after a few cycles of this, you're presented with a lovely, perfect Guinness. It's definitely a good things come to those who wait sort of a thing.
Keeping that in mind, director Nicolai Fuglsig has created a new Guinness commercial called "Tipping Point" that is a large scale domino-style ripple effect ultimately leading to a finished gigantic pint of Guinness. The commercial cost a reported 10 million pounds — roughly 20 million dollars — and includes 6,000 dominoes, 10,000 books, 400 tires, 75 mirrors, 50 fridges, 45 wardrobes and six cars. With all those items, the domino chain takes quite a while to finish, but it is really fantastic when it does. I guess good things do come to those who wait.

I have to admit, I love the Mac vs. PC ads from Apple. Maybe it's my awkward crush on Apple Guy Justin Long, maybe it has something to do with all the funny remakes or maybe it's just clever advertising. The most recent web installment in the series features PC Guy (actor John Hodgman) showing Apple Guy a defective "Don't Give Up On Vista" sign. As a Mac girl I can't really speak for Vista because I've only used it a handful of times, but I have gotten less than favorable reviews from all my PC geek friends. What's your take?
Angelina has a new commercial, but unless you live in Japan, you won't see it on television. That's because Angie hawks products in Japan that she doesn't promote elsewhere (so do Brad and Orlando). She's appearing as the face Shiseido's new Integrate cosmetics line, which, unfortunately, isn't sold online. Take a look at the ad here, and let me know what you think. (Anyone speak or read Japanese? I'm dying to know what the marketing-speak says.)
I recently came across this great advertisement from the Portuguese Ministry of Health:
Aside from the ad being really beautiful and featuring one of my favorite toys, the message reads:
Don’t Play With Your Health. Check Your Cholesterol. High blood cholesterol is one of the major causes of heart diseases and strokes. There are no symptoms. Testing is the only way to find out. Talk to your doctor.
