washing detergent ad

Friday, June 27th, 2008

neatorama posted today about a very clever ad for washing detergent. the detergent sample was mailed across thailand packed in a t-shirt wrapped box. the address was written on the shirt along with postal stamps. as predicted, the postal service almost ruined completely the t-shirt and if the recipient wanted a new clean t-shirt, they had to use the sample detergent. that’s briliant and i like the fact that the company has such confidence in it’s product.

Relaxing Friday morning

Friday, June 6th, 2008

James and I started the morning as usual at La Bonne Patisserie, the most excellent new cafe at Bazel Square. I didn’t order a Croissant, for a change, but instead took a Bruschetta. Having a Bruschetta at a French patisserie is like having a Croissant at an Italian Cafe. It’s not bad or anything, but it is far from the real deal. After that, I ordered a nice Chocolate Eclair, which, ofcourse, was very good. They can’t go wrong, in that place.

Near the Cafe, someone was handing out the new Kinley Lemon-Nana mint. It’s very refreshing!

I saw a few nice things in Boing Boing today.

A cruel but clever Pizza advertisment:
