This brilliant ad campaign by IKEA just shows how well they know their marketing.
It didn’t take long before this hilarious mockery of Apple reached millions of people all over the internet and brought laughter to the masses.
In this parody video, IKEA are launching their new product/catalog, The BookBook.
With this revolutionary product you won’t need any cables, not even for power since the BookBook already comes fully charged.
And you know what?
The battery life is eternal.
This was just too funny, can’t stop laughing!
Partners and brands around the capital have dropped the letters A, O and B from their names today in support of National Blood Week. The new “Missing Type” campaign uses the three letters that make up the blood groups to raise awareness of the need for new donors.
New NHS research shows that new blood donors are in decline – there has been a drop of 40 per cent fewer new people signing up to donate in the last ten years, a trend blamed on the increasing popularity in exotic travel and tattoos, which temporarily bar people from donating.
Jon Latham, assistant director for Donor Services and Marketing at NHS Blood and Transplant, said in a statement:
While we can meet the needs of patients now, it’s important we strengthen the donor base for the future. If we don’t attract new people… to donate it will put more pressure on the ability to provide the right type of blood the NHS needs for patients in the future.
As well as retailers, people have been joining in on social media, losing letters from their names:

Consumers bowled over by the recent return of French Toast Crunch after a nine-year hiatus should enjoy “The Tiny & The Tasty,” a strange and silly soap-opera parody that casts dolls as actors to reintroduce the General Mills cereal. McCann, Picture Mill and Beacon Street collaborated on the campaign.
All the classic daytime-drama tropes—amnesia, family intrigue, murder mysteries, surprise pregnancies—are played out in overwrought fashion on finely detailed miniature sets by poseable Ken- and Barbie-style action figures whose mouths never move.
Bill Wright, global executive creative director at McCann, says the idea stemmed partly from “the 1990s origin of French Toast Crunch. That was the decade when daytime dramas were at their height of popularity. So when you take soap operas and cross them with tiny dolls, you get a strangely awesome mashup.”
We love this “taxonomy of ad agency names” from Rob & Joe, the freelance creative partnership of Rob Donaldson and Joe Dennett. It rather speaks for itself. But in case you don’t get it, they’ve sorted virtually every major ad agency name into one of seven genesis categories. Click to enlarge:
