Need a Roommate? Create a Poster and See Your Ad Go Viral

Roomate Mock Poster

Awesome roommates are hard to come by. Lauren Fahey recently moved to San Francisco and came upon that realization after apartment hunting for a while. With a lot of other “competitors” on the side, Lauren decided that the only way she was ever going to find a decent place to live in was to sell herself–as being one of the best roommates you could ever have.

Lauren then created a movie poster-like ad which featured testimonials about Lauren as a roommate from previous roommates. The ad’s backdrop featured Lauren with a friend (who could be you, if you’re looking for a roommate!) and an ironic naked man at the back, for no particular reason. She explains: “Apartment and roommate hunting was getting so tedious. It’s ridiculously competitive and I had to find a way to set myself apart.”

Lauren’s methods worked, since she now has herself a roommate. If you’re looking for one yourself, then take a cue from Lauren and see if it works for you, too.

WTFF Burger King

Burger King is leaving giant crinkle fries all over New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago in a grand attempt to promote their new reduced-fat fries called “Satisfries.” The pun doesn’t end there. They extend it to the actual promotional campaign, which consisted of leaving the aforementioned giant fries in random places and giving people free Wi-Fry.

They’ve dubbed their campaign #WTFF, which stands for What the French Fry.

Vending Machine Doles Out Free Beer to Lazy Bystanders

Lazy Beer Vending Machine

Getting free beer doesn’t get any easier than this. All you have to do is stand in front of this vending machine and do nothing for three minutes. It’s that easy. This is the latest in a series of advertising stunts done by various companies using a vending machine that doles out free goods in exchange for a random or sometimes unusual action by the person.

The one set up by beer company Amstel is called the Amstel Pause and it definitely stays true to its name. Anybody who wants a cold one only has to press a button to start the timer and stand on the designated spot in front of the Pause. Once the three minutes is up, the machine dispenses a can of booze.

Fat-Burning Breathalyzer Lets You Know If Your Diet’s Working or Not

Fat-Burning Breathalyzer

This isn’t your typical breathalyzer in every sense of the word. It doesn’t measure the amount of alcohol in your breath; rather, it measures how much acetone is in it instead. But what does acetone have to do with diets? You might be aware that acetone is a compound found in most nail polish removers, but did you know that your body produces it, too?

Acetone is produced when fatty acids are broken down in your body. Break down enough fat and eventually this compound will find its way into your breath, so when you blow onto the fat-burning breathalyzer, you’ll know if you’re doing enough to shed off those extra pounds or not.

Stupid Apple Ad: Why Should Headphones Be Round?

Why indeed? Why, dear Apple, were yours painfully round for, what, 13 years?

If you’re going to make an ad, please make sure it’s not made by folks whose memory spans less than one month.

This Coca-Cola Ad Lets You Roll Your Own Coke-Tastic Smartphone Amplifier

Coca Cola Smartphone Amplifier

The quirkier the ad, the more attention it’ll get. Every ad agency knows that, although not all of them manage to execute this in their campaigns. A Coca-Cola ad that was recently run in South America did, however, and it’s getting them a whole lot of coverage. The multi-national corporation was celebrating the one year anniversary of Coca Cola FM, so what they did was transform Capricho Magazine (where the ad was printed) into an amplifier to liven up the party.

The ad basically instructs readers to roll their magazine up and tuck a tab on the magazine’s special double cover into a slot on the other side. The last step involves putting the phone into the groove found on the middle of the makeshift amplifier. You already know what happens next.

Check out a video of the Coca Cola magazine amplifier in action after the break.
