It appears that the New York Rangers bandwagon is the Times Square Shuttle. Hockey fans know that the Rangers are hot, having finished the regular season in first place and starting the playoffs with a convincing win last night. But for those New Yorkers who haven’t noticed yet, the Rangers have wrapped an entire subway train to get the word out!
So make sure you get on the Rangers bandwagon before this train leaves the station.
I love when creative and placement work together to create a relevant and memorable brand impression. This clever marriage of the message and the medium from BBC America drives home the impression that BBC America delivers a serious, high quality product, while differentiating itself from the competition in a highly memorable way.
This 60-second spot from Australia gave me a good laugh for a good cause. It uses a very funny premise to urge Australians to participate in Earth Hour 2011. At 8:30 PM on Saturday, March 26, 2011, everyone around the world is asked to switch off their lights in a symbolic display of our commitment to the environment.

Meanwhile, enjoy a good laugh at the fate of the last people in Australia to participate.
Being a life long New Yorker, snapping a picture on the subway is not something I would ordinarily do, but this subway ad from JetBlue motivated me to do just that. I love the way they integrated the QR code into the main visual, catching my attention by highlighting not just the promotion but the activation mechanism as well. And now, using the QR reader on my Droid, I’m now entered to win a trip to St. Pete and have documented it here, all in the time it takes to get to Canal Street!
