Transavia…

Now, my Dutch is somewhat rusty, but…

…I think the upshot is, come up with a new tagline for us, and we’ll let you travel free for a year on our very bright green budget airline (hopefully with a free pair of sunglasses, instead of an in-flight meal).

Clients usually get the quality of work / agency they deserve.

I’m not saying I disagree with crowd sourcing, far from it. But this does not feel remotely slick, strategic, or thought through in the slightest. Good luck Transavia. Something tells me you may need it after this…

Iain G. Morrison doesn’t think Transavia will be offering him any free flights in the near future…

Save the NHS…

I care passionately about the NHS.

It’s a remarkable institution and one that should not be allowed to be reformed by a coalition (where neither party elected mentioned gutting it like a fish in their respective manifestos).

This video comes with one of those not suitable for minors / sweary warnings. But I think it sums up how many people feel about Andrew Lansley…

Iain G. Morrison would encourage you all to write to your MP and insist they #savethenhs

Where angels fear to tread…

Very few things about a commute in and out of Victoria can ever be described as angelic. Even if they smell of teenage changing rooms.

So, to Lynx and their recent ambient stuntette…

Despite the exceptionally high production values, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the latest TVC. But I have to say, I am something of a fan of this.

Especially the hip swinging reaction of most men…

Iain G. Morrison mainly recuperating and praising the angels from the NHS this week. Lasnley, if you’re listening, be a love and keep your butchers hands off the finest of British institutions…

Coke. Joy. And no Santa in sight…

A while ago I, mentioned a couple of random acts of kindness I’d seen from Spanair and KLM that I loved. We all know it’s going to be a big trend in 2011 and now the all American bastions of sugary drinks are ramping up their efforts…

If you haven’t already seen the Coke vending machine effort, its brilliant. But taking that concept onto the streets of Rio, well.

See for yourself.

Angry boys…

No, it’s not the next single from <insert former X-Factor winners name here>.

It’s the follow up to the genius mockumentary series Summer Heights High from the comedic genius, Chris Lilley. BBC 3 will be broadcasting the show this summer.

For those of you that can’t wait, here’s a little slice of Mr. G, the musical…

Groupon does the Superbowl. With Whales?

Next time one of those self-appointed social media ninja’s tells you that all other channels are dead, stick them on this boat with Cuba Gooding Jnr.

Tech companies often make lacklustre TV spots (Kindle anyone?), but this ain’t half bad. Not quite up there with the force, but I’m sure Groupon will be on everyone’s lips at those infamous water coolers tomorrow in YankeDoodleLand…

Now, Mr or Mrs Agent of Gooding Jnr. Please get him some good movie scripts?

Iain G. Morrison is a senior marketer in the British Tourism Industry for the next month. Then it’s all change…

Feel the force…

Dear readers, I have been rather busy of late, apologies for radio silence. This little gem was brought to my attention this morn and I felt compelled to share…

For an American ad, there’s a hell of a lot of charm / humour there; exceptionally nice work Baby Darth. I’m sure Stuey from Family Guy is quaking in his boots now there’s competition in town…

Angry birds

Well, the most downloaded paid for app of 2010 has gone old skool. Yes, it’s an Angry Birds board game brought to you by Mattel…

The cards seem unduly complex.

The brutal simplicity of the swipe and smash iPhone app doesn’t quite come across here, but I’m sure legions of children (and kidults), will enjoy building and tearing down the monster holding structure…

Iain G. Morrison is a senior marketer in the British Tourism Industry. And suffers a mild addiction to Angry Birds…

Two Jags / Jabs Prescot and the haggler

When you aren’t running the country (Well, I say that. It’s the Deputy Prime Minister. We all know it’s a meaningless post, but we can keep up the pretence for a certain someone’s sake), what’s else is there to do but cash in on your new-found ‘celebrity’.

Meerkats, opera singers, a very confused cartoon (with a recent brand extension into dating?), and the good old haggler carry on fighting it out for our hearts and minds in the 2011  insurance price comparison battleground.

With sly references to his ‘Two Jags’ nickname of old and the brilliant piece of general election campaigning that was punching a voter in the face whilst in front of numerous TV cameras, this execution is clearly aimed at the thinking men and women of the price comparison world.

Surely one of the best use of British celebs* we’ll see in 2011…

Nice work MCBD, keep it up…

Iain G. Morrison is a senior marketer in the British Tourism Industry. And would remind you all never to argue with men from Hull that know how to box…

* term used in its loosest sense
