Here’s the MRM Rebecca Black Parody You Never Asked For

We know how fond you all have been of MRM’s past video productions, so it’s our, um, pleasure to bring you this latest effort from the agency’s interns, which may prove once and for all that *gulp* Rebecca Black is never going away. So how does this spoof of the saccharine songstress compare to other musical agency intern efforts like, say, “World of an Intern” from CP+B? And yes, to reiterate, these are just interns folks, so try to take it easy.

A Zoned-Out Baby Asks You to ‘Dislike’ Female Genital Mutilation

Truly, filming a baby and putting in on YouTube is a pretty cliched way of garnering views. But, what about having a baby talk to you about female genital mutilation through balloons while it stares at you with dead eyes? Well, that’s something else.

Created with the hope of becoming the most “disliked” video on YouTube (it currently has 200), “The Dislike Baby” is as jarring as it is interesting. Hey, we can’t have the likes of Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black hogging all of YouTube’s ill will, can we? The video links to the website of the Orchid Project, an organization that seeks to end FMG globally. Is this an actual video from the Orchid Project, or is it along the lines of the entries for Cannes’ “Good Works” film projects? Either way, it got our attention.

Tomorrow Awards Announce Winners

Yesterday evening, the Tomorrow Awards announced its winning entries from the French-speaking portion of Canada, Montreal (you hoser).

All five winning entries of the event’s Winter 2011 session came in some part from the socialized medicine-rejecting, guitar-soloing, Rebecca Black-mocking United States of America. The awards are given to efforts in the international advertising industry that push “new technological boundaries.” So, it’s really no surprise that the country that gave the world Groupon would in essence sweep the ceremony. Tomorrow Awards CEO Ignacio Oreamuno called the awards a “phenomenal experience,” saying, “Not only did our Monster Judges put a tremendous amount of thought into selecting the absolute best work from a shortlist full of gems, we were also overjoyed to present these winners to the world in our first ever conference, right here in beautiful Montreal.”

The winning entries are:

4th Amendment Wear – 4th Amendment Wear – USA
Mitsubishi “Live Drive” (above)– 180LA – USA
Pay With A Tweet – R/GA – USA
The Wilderness Downtown – Google Creative Lab – USA
YouTube Life In A Day – Rehab Studio/Google Creative Lab – UK/USA
