Not-The-Sac Wax

How do you get young guys to expose their balls and check them regularly for testicular cancer? Host a party and challenge them to get waxed to bring the issue into the broad light of day. A collaboration between Crush and BBDO, the resulting reactions are both hilarious and effective. Testicular cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer for males between the ages of 15-29 but it is also the most treatable if caught early. Despite that, awareness of testicular cancer is low. This may just change that.

"The idea of PixMob was to think of people as pixel-wearers, they are going to create a light canvas," says Vincent Leclerc, the CTO of PixMob, a design studio that focuses on turning live events into immersive spectacles by inserting LEDs in ordinary objects, subsequently making them magical. Whether it’s embedding LEDs in hats given out to Super Bowl XLVIII attendees in February, or creating colorful, blinking bracelets for concert-goers to wear at Tiësto’s Hakkasan residency in Las Vegas, PixMob is evolving cultural milestones into illuminated extravaganzas.

IBM “All In The Cloud”

IBM breaks a series of new television ads that evolve the Smarter Planet campaign with a new creative look and feel. The television advertising provides a very different creative look for IBM, one that is a bit more visually distinctive. The smarter analytics campaign. “All in the Cloud”, the most ambitious of the commercials, tapped 32 animators, illustrators, designers and modelers who worked for eight weeks to create a world that one could imagine in the clouds. Everything in the spot was painted by hand and then mapped onto 3D wireframes to create the completely bespoke look. Each character has a back story which sparked the animators’ imaginations. Every “location” was extensively researched to make sure the transformed world looked like the real one.
