72andSunny, Adam Carolla Prank Kids for Skylanders Stunt

72andSunny teamed up with Adam Carolla to prank children on behalf of Activision’s new game Skylanders Trap Team.

The online spot was filmed at a Glendale, California Toys R’ Us, where Carolla acted as the evil voice trapped within the game’s crystal trap. Unsuspecting kids visiting a demo of the game were surprised by Carolla’s voice, as the evil trapped within, and mostly amused by their interactions with the inanimate object — although one kid was insightful enough to call Carolla “the most annoying person in the world.”

The team at 72andSunny chose selected pieces from their footage and edited it down to a 3:19 video for the online spot. While the rest of us may be a bit jaded by the whole prankvertising approach, the kids involved seemed to be having a blast, and we imagine young Skylanders fans will want to share this one and/or beg their parents to buy them the new game.

Boulder Condom Brand Ushers in First Annual ‘Birth Control Day’

Boulder-based condom brand Sir Richard’s, which always makes us think of that damn Branson for reason, is giving a shout-out to the anti-procreation community by inaugurating the first annual “Birth Control Day.” While BBH Asia-Pacific and Mentos encourage baby-making, hometown agency TDA does the exact opposite via a series of digital “Happy Birth Control Day” cards you can email, update, tweet, pin, flip, smack and rub down (well, we guess) to let your partner know, no kids, no way. FYI, the actual Birth Control Day will be celebrated on Nov. 13, which marks the date back in 1921 when Margaret Sanger was arrested for trying to block the NYPD from shutting down the nation’s first American Birth Control Conference. There are a dozen e-cards to choose from on the campaign’s microsite and we’ve posted two of our faves. Credits below.
