Via National Post Making fun of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's distinctive tonsure has become one of the official sports of the internet, so it's no surprise that a hair salon got in on the action. Neither super clever...

Neither super clever nor outrageous, the poster might have been a minor meme on Reddit for five seconds, then forgotten. Except that this salon is in London, and not too far from the North Korean embassy.

At first sight, I thought this was a CSR campaign against distracted driving. But after reading the fine print ("Detects danger when you don't. Audi Presense") it feels like the exact opposite.

“I Touch Myself” finds new life as a PSA

Chrissy Amphlett died almost exactly a year ago of breast cancer. In her memory, ten Australian women singers carry the melody from one to another in a beautiful and haunting tribute.

I'm sure the agency didn't intend to invoke the spectre of "blackface," but there it is. Nonetheless, they're pretty masturbatory ads, from a creative perspective. Whatever happened to making the product the hero?
I get the concept of mud mask treatments and going off road. But the execution is both weird and unsettling: I'm sure the agency didn't intend to invoke the spectre of "blackface," but there it is. Nonetheless, they're pr...

"Alberta got rid of its alcohol control board entirely and yet the youth there have not become a mob of drunken degenerates. You can buy booze at the corner store in Quebec and everyone I've ever talked to thinks that's pretty great."

Jesus defended his apostles for picking a bit of grain on the Sabbath, saying rules were meant to serve people, not the other way around (Mark 2:23–28).  He was sort-of a rabbi, though not an orthodox one.

The singers are Connie Mitchell, Deborah Conway; Kate Cerebrano; Katie Noonan; Little Pattie; Megan Washington; Olivia Newton-John; Sarah Blasko; Sarah McLeod; and Suze DeMarchi. (OK, as a Canadian I admit that Olivia Newton-John was the only name I recognized, but Suze DeMarchi was apparently on the original Karate Kid soundtrack.)
