And if I’m not one of them, can I twisted humor Chipotle “do something good for Halloween this year” promo with Salon oldest newspaper corresponds to. It plays a Frankenstein actual size, and it’s a huge ass, this location on the corresponding channel campaign Annual Charity. He steals trick-or-treat candy child TP houses of his neighbors and commandeers a car cop. Worse? He jumps the line for his $ 2 Chipotle “boorito.” This is a good thing goes Chipotle on Halloween night, up to EUR 1 million will go to the foundation of healthy and sustainable food supply, restaurant. Hopefully, that does not Riggle won $ 2,500 for the best costume. Such a monster.
Skittles's fascination with poorly functioning anatomy continues in this latest commercial from DDB Chicago, in which a man—who looks quite a bit like Abraham Lincoln—sweats Skittles as he runs on a treadmill. Meanwhile, a younger guy all but drives the guy to exhaustion, so he can collect the free candy. DDB, which took over the Skittles account from TBWA last year, has focused a lot on weird body stuff like this—one kid had Skittle pox, while another had the candies shooting out of his ears. This is, so to speak, in the brand DNA—the old TBWA spots included one with a man being milked like a cow; another with a guy who has a beard that moves on its own; and a third in which a boy has a Skittles tree growing out of his stomach. Check out 18 of the old spots here. Credits below.

James Lipton is a national treasure, damn it, but the erudite TV host gets precious little respect—or promotion—from his own network. Until now. Lipton lines up his first cameo in Bravo's splashy summer ads, alongside such basic-cable luminaries as Zoila the maid from Flipping Out and Giggy the Pom from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lipton is a Bravo-lebrity! Finally! He must be sleeping like a baby these days! Elsewhere in the Olympic-themed promo, launching Wednesday night and airing for the next few months, Housewives toss cocktails, but oddly, not at each other, and Top Chef's Tom Colicchio stuffs his face. Andy Cohen nearly goes up in flames—insert whatever joke comes to mind here—and Jeff Lewis gets punked, all to the strains of Madonna's new single, "Superstar." The work, the third summer promo in a row for Bravo's escapist fare, comes from Los Angeles agency Stun Creative, where letting Kathy Griffin run mischievously wild and fixing a race for NeNe Leakes is the first order of business.
This BBDO Toronto spot for the Canadian Paralympic Committee takes the gold for inspired visual storytelling. Amputee runner Alister McQueen races around a track at night, initially dodging stray wheelchairs, then encountering increasingly complex elements of an injurious auto accident and its aftermath. He runs through a physical rehabilitation room and trauma ward staffed with medical personnel, then past emergency crews, ambulances and the twisted wreckage at the crash scene itself. "It's not my story," McQueen explains in the making-of video. "It's more of a general [tale] of how a lot of the amputees lost their legs." Amazingly, the PSA was filmed in one continuous shot, the production somewhat rushed by the threat of an approaching storm. The wet, unsettled weather adds to the moody atmosphere, and the lack of dialog and narration strengthen the visual intensity. Placing the images out of sequence, basically in reverse order—the wheelchairs and rehab before the crash—gives the entire scenario a dreamlike quality, as if McQueen is seeing these scenes in his mind as he runs. Though packed with images and activity, the spot is never too busy or confusing. The message of personal triumph is clearly communicated by the fact that he keeps going, leaving the tragedy far behind. It's breathtaking stuff—with a companion print piece that's equally exhilarating. The campaign does an astonishing job of capturing the indomitability of the human spirit, and on the award-show circuit it may well live up to its tagline: "Unstoppable."
