Turkeys make better burgers than babysitters, says D&G and Carl’s Jr. thumbnail

The last time our LA friends at David&Goliath were showing off work for burger chain Carl’s Jr, they were unveiling a new turkey burger using the ravishing Miss Turkey in an all-out glitz and glamour spot.

With the introduction out of the way, they can now get down to a harsh reality: turkeys really aren’t good for anything except making delicious burgers.


Droga5 lets the sun shine in for Prudential

Working at ihaveanidea can be a lot of crazy fun, but it’s certainly not for people who need to be 9-to-5ers. In fact you’re more likely to see the sun rise in the morning because you worked the whole night through than you are because you are just waking up.In cases like those, it’s best to just draw the blinds and mumble something about coffee.

Thankfully the crew at Droga5 New York have given us a new appreciation for the start of a new day, here in their very first TV spot for financial services company Prudential.


Deutsch takes a swing at Volkswagen

Volkswagen ads have long used clever ways to depict various qualities of the vehicles. You’ve seen their compactness, their fuel efficiency, their agility, and even their toughness — who remembers that infamous and not exactly authorized Polo ad from years back?

Now it’s time for Deutsch LA to get a kick at the can, or more accurately a swing at the Tiguan.


Y&R NY, VML get Xerox into your business brain

Y&R NY, VML get Xerox into your business brain thumbnail

I’m not even sure if the folks at Xerox would even want to know what goes on inside the minds of the ihaveanidea crew during office hours — more for letter words than you can shake an HR manual at — but it looks like Y&R New York and VML have joined forces to create Business For Your Brain.

Whew! We at ihaveanidea have been insanely busy behind the scenes, gearing up for Portfolio Night 9, the return of the Schmooze, the launch of Creative Director:Year Zero, our first ever Training Day and a whole host of other things, so it’s no wonder that a few award show notes have slipped in under the [...]


BBDO Toronto gets you to touch Skittles’ rainbow

BBDO Toronto gets you to touch Skittles’ rainbow thumbnail

By now all of you know ihaveanidea’s policy on TBWAChiatDay New York’s ads for Skittles and Starburst; there’s no explaining the madness, so we don’t even try.

Let it be known that this rule also extends to Skittles ads made by BBDO Toronto, with these kinda, sorta but not really interactive online videos from their YouTube channel.


Sid Lee gets fresh for IGA

Sid Lee gets fresh for IGA thumbnail

Montreal hot shop Sid Lee has received a great deal of press for big time accounts lately — in fact I just interviewed agency CCO Philippe Meunier the other day about their new global campaign for adidas and the recent Dell win. But it’s good to see Sid Lee taking care of their much smaller, Canadian clients.


David&Goliath present a little Turkish delight for Carl’s Jr, Hardee’s

David&Goliath present a little Turkish delight for Carl’s Jr, Hardee’s thumbnail

US burger chain siblings Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s may have switched agencies earlier this year, moving from Mendelsohn Zien to David&Goliath, but not everything switched. The company still has a penchant for ads featuring sexy women with burgers in their hands.


Grey NY is epic win for DirecTV

Grey NY is epic win for DirecTV thumbnail

The last time we saw our ludicrously wealthy Russian DirecTV spokesman, he was showing off his opulence, right down to his toy-sized giraffe. This time around, Grey New York has our man talking workout routines.
