Cheat Your Way to the AICP Awards (Not Really)

The Association of Independent Commercial Producers unveiled it’s campaign for the 2013 AICP Show and AICP Next Awards with a few spots that resemble fake interstitials from a sci-fi movie most likely directed by James Cameron. The machines aren’t taking over, but we do have EureeCorp, the make-believe company with a line of products like the Idea Orb, which can transmit award-winning ideas to your brain as you sleep.

If the Idea Orb doesn’t inspire collusion, there’s always the Centaurus 3000, a computer full of magical software and algorithms that produces a scent where you “can waft in the ideas of the future.” Okay, the machines might be taking over, and those machines really like detached body parts.

This AICP campaign doesn’t have as much bite as some of their previous, more carnivorous work, but success can’t always be duplicated. After all, innovation has no formula. Credits and the Centaurus 3000 spot 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.
