A better world for you and me

#sings# Heal the world, make it a better place for you and for me and the entire human race.
there are people dying.if you care enough for the living.
make a better place for you and for me-“Heal the world”-Michael Jackson
Dear friend, don’t you just hate it when bad things happen? especially to good people like you and me. in case you’re wondering why i was singing, i love that song. its so inspiring.
i mean, I’m not saying I’m perfect. who is? we can’t deny that we live in a world where some people gain from
bad things: stealing at all levels, corruption, murder and terrorism to mention a minute few.
we could decide to  dwell on all the disasters and destruction wreaked by humans and nature from now till kingdom come.
But i still believe the world can be so much better. i look on the bright side.
i don’t pretend not to feel angry, sad or ashamed at times. i just know that theses are emotions i must experience.
except i’m a robot or some other element, which i’m not.i also embrace the good feelings and try to make them last longer.
like the Guinness Clock that’s made of more:

You should do the same. Because that’s what life’s about.
in the same vein, i like what Coca-cola did with its ads about seeing the positive side of situations
especially those that are almost always bad. The copy says ‘let’s look at the world a little differently.” Check em out:

wouldn’t it be nice if a gangster did the above?

this is one mischievous Santa Claus!

Google global impact challenge did a brilliant job of showing what your cursor can do to make the world a better place.
I think they did a lovely job. you should see it.

we have a great role to play in stopping bad things from happening.like accidents.
Mini gave women in Mexico a warning but all women should learn from this:

still in the spirit of looking on the bright side, AES Electropaulos Lightpost projectors shares “the best stories of life through energy.”

We can’t give up. Got to keep on moving. let’s conquer the bad with good. let’s not just complain but act to correct the situation.
let’s unite against poverty, diseases, corruption,terrorism, racism and all the other bad isms. wherever you are: in your corner, office, business, street, area, country.
Live, laugh and love yourself and the next person. let’s do what we can to make the world a better place.

what do you think of these ads?  do they inspire you?  please use the comment box and express yourself”. Bless

Its not just alcohol 26/04/13

Greetings friends! do you drink? when i say drink i mean alcohol:  spirits, wines and beers that intoxicate you and make you talk more than you usually would. now if you’re  talkative already, accept my sober apologies but i cant help you. you’re responsible for what you say. totally on your own (O.Y.O). i know guys who’d  call a babe they like but haven’t summoned the courage to tell how they feel and start saying sweet nothings in order to win her over or get a date.  Does Alcohol make them braver? As for me, i like beer, palm, red wine and champagne. when you drink beer at the right temperature, its enjoyable. i don’t really dig vodka because i feel drained whenever i drink even a small amount of it. i usually have to mix it with a soft drink, to take the edge off. As for red wine, y’all know its good for the heart and can turn you on (increases blood flow down below). when it comes to bubbly aka sparkling wine aka Champagne, i saved the best for the last. there’s a place called Champagne in France where this fizzy wine gets its name from. today there are other vines in various regions of the world. Its always been linked to royalty or the upper class and till date it is used in French coronations. it’s sheer class to sip on some Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, GH Mumm, or Ace of spades while having a sumptuous meal or a light snack. Just make sure that  you drink responsibly. I believe in moderation, that’s why I’ve really embarrassed myself only twice. you can ask my friend Emmanuel, if you get a hold of him. until then, you’ll have to take my word for it.  So my fellow moderate drinkers, you would agree with me that its okay to drink and enjoy yourself eh? should you drink irresponsibly? sure! When Guinness says “made of more” is it about more vomit or alcohol? is it about the immense potential we all have to achieve greatness in our lives. Does the fact that i drink make me less creative? but if i keep showing up to work with a hangover that reduces my productivity then its a problem. Many may have said you would never amount to anything. that you’re not creative or star material or that you’d end up poor and unsuccessful. But you know they ‘re wrong. in fact clueless! You know that you have talent, skill, passion, discipline, creativity, vision, faith and are constantly working towards fulfilling your dreams.  You fight the good fight, even on bad days. Whoever you are,  this ad encourages you to know that you’re made of more. check out these ads by BBDO Proximity, Singapore for the Guinness Made of more campaign. do they do justice to this idea? what could have been the thinking behind this campaign? Please share, my fellow lovers of creativity and life!

a nightclub of horses…

hey guys! how are you all doing? I’m good. thank you. #winks# like i said, I’ll be asking reviewing any creative work that strikes me. i would love to hear your views as well. i was going through adsoftheworld.com, a famous site where creative works are showcased and i found an interesting print ad, powerfully executed by Heads SP, Brazil.  The copy goes like this “whatever it takes. Cabaret audio producer: Battlefield “…  A cabaret is what we now call a nightclub/pub/go-go/strip club… Catch my drift? it just made me wonder what a nightclub filled with horses and their riders performing would be like. Or is it about a battle fought on horse-back in a pub? There would be a whole lot of neighing. i think its memorable though. Because its hard to forget the image.

go horsey! its your birthday

go horsey! its your birthday

what does “whatever it takes” mean? Could it be expressing the lengths that one could go to produce music? does the work clearly pass a message to you? besides the impressive execution of the ad, what’s the big idea that led to it? Check it out
