Stussy, Arnold Amsterdam Say Yes to Weed-Infused Food

Nancy Reagan should look the other way. For Stussy’s aptly titled “Baked” campaign, Arnold Amsterdam is rolling out a series of foodie videos that mix fine-dining with street-legal drug ingredients like marijuana and salvia. Chef Misha Sukya–full of the requisite tattoos that make me think he didn’t have to audition too hard to get the role of a weed chef–takes the viewer through the cooking process as he whips up a creative menu including baked veal in a Salvia Divinorum Crut with Magic Truffles and Marijuana. If that’s not primed for your palette, there’s always the Morning Glory Ravioli with Coquilles, Damiana & Marijuana.

In the videos, don’t forget to check out the t-shirts on Chef Misha. You can find Stussy Amsterdam clothing and a BAKED cookbook on the FreshCotton website, if interested. “Just Say No” doesn’t apply if it tastes good. Sorry, Nancy.

DHL Delivers Manchester United Stars to the World

One of the biggest benefits of sponsoring what is arguably the world’s most famous professional sports teams is being able to use its likeness in advertising. While logistics company DHL isn’t Manchester United’s main partner (insurance company AON is actually what takes up the most space on the team’s jerseys), a new campaign from 180 Amsterdam that continues the brand’s “Speed of Yellow” mantra finds Man U stars wearing slightly altered uniforms.

180 Amsterdam ECD Al Moseley says in a statement that the spot for DHL is, “Not another celebration of a sponsorship but a demonstration of a true partnership between global brands.” As a flying ball of yellow energy travels across continents, from London to Tokyo to Dubai to Rio de Janeiro, it soars near Man U’s biggest stars including Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Nemanja Vidić, Park Ji-Sung,Chicharito’ and coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

A second spot that sheds (bright yellow) light on DHL’s various partnerships features the brand’s speed of delivery racing Formula 1 drivers. And, just like the first, it’s scored with DHL’s theme, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” So, how do you think this compares to UPS’ recent logistics TV spots? Credits, and that terrible “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” sing-a-long from the 1998 Susan Sarandon/Julia Roberts comedy Stepmom for your immediate gratification after the jump.
