Mother’s Day has already come and gone, but F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi decided to put a together a touching airborne ad at the request of Electrolux. “Best Mother’s Day Present” involves a young woman leaving for college, a homemade lasagne from her mom, and an extremely touching inflight announcement.
Coca-Cola has launched a new campaign featuring a line of 16 unique bottle caps that can be attached to its bottles after they’ve been used. The company partnered with Ogilvy & Mather China for ’2nd Lives,’ with the aim of encouraging people to reuse and recycle more plastic.
Coca-Cola worked with Leo Burnett Colombia on the Bio Cooler Project to bring cool drinks to parts of the world that have extremely hot weather without a regular power supply.
Shopping for makeup can be a hassle. You have to browse the store for choices you think might be a good match, then stop at a mirror and take off whatever makeup you already have on. After each tester choice, you have to remove the product you just put on to try out the next, which is not only time consuming but can also be hard on your skin. To save time, you could always make a purchase without trying it on, but if you’re not satisfied with how it looks, there’s nothing you can do. If you buy your makeup from Sephora, however, you might never waste money on a product you don’t like again.
