Mullen, One Club Put Pencil ‘Kill Factor’ to the Test

Is a Pencil worth dying for? We have had no idea that the One Club prize was worth so much, but we’ll applaud the 8-bit nostalgia provided to us by Mullen and said organization. This effort, which was built on HTML5 and was one of the most recent efforts led by  recently departed chief digital officer Mauro Cavalletti. The clip provides us the story of “vigilante” Jon Scraper, a man without a cause, but knowing the ad industry, one who has his balls in the vice of a client. Credits after the jump.

AICP Show Names Chair, Calls for Entries

It seems like only yesterday we were busy posting AICP Show promotional videos created by the students at the VCU Brandcenter. Alas, it’s already been a year since the school taught us surprising lessons about advertising history’s most famous artistic endeavors. Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci was the Richard Simmons of his time? What about the fact that the Eiffel Tower was actually constructed to represent a giant, metal dong? If these tales didn’t inspire us to “change the world” as advertisers, at least they doubled as awkward icebreakers at an industry networking event.

This time around, the AICP Show is once again calling that those clever scamps at the Brandcenter to continue the “All Art is Advertising” campaign, a nod to that fact that all award honorees get their independently produced commercials into the Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Film Collection. Above, we see how creativity has (or hasn’t) changed through history, from the Egyptians to the present day art director and copywriter duo. AICP also announced that the chairperson for the 21st installment of the awards show is Jackie Kelman Bisbee, founding partner and co-owner of  the venerable production company, Park Pictures.

Those interested in submitting their work can do so on AICP’s Show and Next Awards website from now through March 2. One more short, entry categories, and credits follow after the jump.
