EVB Channels Spirit of ‘Clue’ for Jameson Facebook Game

Ahh, Evolution Bureau, you had us at Jameson, which is the shot of choice for yours truly and many others out there we imagine. The San Francisco digital agency has teamed up with unit 9 to launch a Facebook game (which means it would really help if you had a Facebook account to actually play) that invites you and your friends on the social network to solve a mystery surrounding a missing barrel of the Irish whiskey. The game transports players back to 1780′s Dublin, where you’ll be given a map and meet a handful of characters around town who will provide you with clues to identify the culprit behind the missing barrel.

Just a heads up, though, that your Facebook information including friend lists, news feeds, etc., will need to be digested by Jameson in order to play the 1780 game as it also tests how well you know your FB friends in the process. If you relish playing a Col. Mustard, Prof. Plum or Ms. Scarlet type and are tired of playing Clue, perhaps this a worthy enough time-killer for you. Besides, we know you’re already thinking drinking game with this anyways. Credits after the jump.

APPA Suggests You Get Your Dog a Dawg

Your dog may love you, but that doesn’t mean your dog particularly likes you. Sure, “Demetrius” (or whatever particularly awful name you’ve chosen to call it) is extremely loyal, protective of you and your family and enjoys joining you for a good jog around the neighborhood. But, believe it or not, this undying loyalty means your dog is probably pretending to enjoy your terrible habits with you. That look Demetrius is giving you while you camp out on your couch for marathons of Storage Wars or “The Kardashians Saves Christmas” isn’t one of happiness or respect; it’s a look of sorrow and pity. Of course, you don’t realize this due to a difficult communication barrier. In conclusion, it might be time to get Demetrius a friend of the same species.

Above is a new spot from agencies EVB and Impetus for the American Pet Products Association that will run online as part of the “Pets Add Life” campaign. A series of spots directed by Daniel Strange, the man behind the lens of Zach Galifianakis‘ bizarre web interview series “Between Two Ferns,” attempts to remind viewers that despite the love you give to your pets, they spend their lives yearning for some enlightened conversation that their owners can’t supply. If FX’s Wilfred has taught us anything, it’s that nothing can beat a grown man relaxing in a dog suit, especially when he’s discussing butt-sniffin’ (it’s the B-E-S-T).  So, if you’ve decided to take the leap and add a pet to your household, consider adding two. Nice work, EVB. Credits after the jump and two more spots (with kitties and lizards) after the jump.
