Battleship, the movie based on the Hasbro game, hits theaters in a few weeks. In the meantime, someone on the internet spoofed the movie’s official poster with two other Hasbro games: Hungry Hungry Hippos and Mousetrap. Sadly, due to most people on the internet not understanding the concept of citing their sources, I hit a dead-end trying to trace back who originally created these images. Let’s just hope Hollywood doesn’t get a hold of them, because the next thing we know, we’ll see these two movies coming soon to theaters!

“A SUPERHERO IN EVERY AISLE” is the new campaign by WIEDEN + KENNEDY for Target. As a piece of the campaign, the team assembled elements of the main characters from Marvel’s new movie The Avengers (sans Hawkeye & Black Widow) out of every day objects you can find at Target such as Dr. Pepper cans. LOTS of Dr. Pepper cans.

I have no words. Just laughter. To borrow THE MARY SUE‘s headline: “Sauron is the Kevin of this Lord of the Rings/Backstreet Boys Mash-up.” And the last few seconds where they start doing the dance with the arms … Sorry, I’m dying of laughter again.

Last month I posted a series of MINIMALIST PIXAR MOVIE POSTERS by Wonchan Lee. These are better. The only one I don’t like is Cars, though I admit I haven’t seen the film since it came out so maybe the traffic cone plays an important role? The following series is by artist ANDREA NGUYEN (AKA PANDREAA) all of them are available as prints through SOCIETY6.

Apparently I’m a few days behind on my political news, but as someone who keeps an Etch-A-Sketch in the bedside table drawer, I had to repost these wonderful ads by TEAM DETROIT. Created in response to a political gaffe by one of Mitt Romney’s senior advisors (read about it HERE) the witty and bold copy takes exactly the right tone that capitalizes on the national conversation without ever taking sides or being offensive. Excellent, quick-thinking work by the client and agency!
