The Mummy Returns.

A few Months ago I posted " How ugly the CD covers are in Lebanon", today I was shocked when I saw this cover. Is it a special Halloween Album? I am sure you did not recognize her like me if  her name wasn't well written in a special artistic font !
When the managers of Music & Entertainment Industry will learn that not only Coca-Cola and Starbucks  are brands but the artist is a brand and they have to work on the "personal branding" before working on a brand new album.
"If you don't brand yourself, someone else will - and it may not be the brand you wanted for yourself "

Lack of originality

I guess the creative  director was inspired from some profile pictures on the facebook of people taking pictures of themselves   to make this new C&F campaign, and he took the slogan "Love Yourself"  from an old Rio Sul Shoping center campaign .

Do we need this slogan in Lebanon "Love yourself"? i don't think so because 
·         We are falling in love with ourselves
·         We never criticize ourselves
·         We are always positive even  during the war
·         We trust ourselves
·         We are the most beautiful people in the world (thank you to the plastic surgeries)
·         We know how to relax in the best spa in town.
In my opinion we should raise another slogan: "too much love will kill you" :O)

I love to chat with old smart people, today I had a great chat with  Elie, 85 years old man , We discussed many interesting topics including the weather in Lebanon, when I asked him about the warm weather in November he said: “ بين تشرين و تشرين صيفٌ ثان “Between October and November a second summer” remembering  how  he spent all November 1962 in the beach swimming .Returning home i wanted to be sure asking my Friend Google. I found a chart that justify Elie's answer. You can see in that chart bellow November 1962 was warm as November 2010... it is an Indian summer. A new Lebanese quote to memorize "  بين تشرين و تشرين صيفٌ ثان

Moustaches Make a Difference.

A creative funny advertising campaign by TBWA Singapor worth sharing: "“Moustaches Make a Difference” An initiative to show its support to research against prostate cancer. Many examples like Super Mario, Einstein or Gandhi....

“Moustaches Make A Difference. This month, help us support prostate cancer research by growing a moustache. If you can’t get grow one, get one at, and encourage your friends to donate.”

Anti-Radar People!

We Lebanese always nag about the situation in Lebanon the infrastructure the laws and of course the traffic jams and the accidents … I was so happy that the Lebanese government decided to plant a radar speed on the Lebanese roads so some "zouzou ebba" will calm down , but I was shocked  that some guys  tweeting and re tweeting  the locations of all the radars from Beirut to Tripoli, and other bloggers posting a how to install a new application on the cell phone helping you to skip a radar, I believe that people on twitter and bloggers  are educated young Lebanese  who dreams of a better Lebanon and have some influence on others.It makes you feel better or a genius posting  useless information with others ? why don't you create a new useful smart phone applications that makes our life easier and makes you a real genius!?

A hunter shoots a bear.

I love smart interactive ad .This is one of the best since Old Spice, Tipp-Ex®, BIC Europe Group's brand, goes on Youtube with an interactive clever campaign "A hunter shoots a bear" involving the bear and the hunter make them do what you want by typing the verb, you’re allowed to type in any verb. Type in “eats” and you get a video of the hunter eating a bear, type in ‘hugs’ and the bear and hunter share an embrace Try it Here.
