• NEW! Rob Lowe Is The Latest Colonel In KFC Campaign
    Rob Lowe is the latest actor to play Colonel Sanders in a KFC campaign -- but I believe he's the first to ditch the Southern accent. Although it does come and go. The Colonel promotes KFC's Zingers chicken sandwich with a promise to send a sandwich into space this summer. The Colonel, dressed in a space suit, addresses the media, and Americans, with an important message of exploring the unknown by sending a Zingers chicken sandwich into space. The Colonel's rallying cry has the nation riled up and excited about venturing into the ...

Maybe it was a relative or schoolteacher who saw signs of abuse but never reported it. To recreate each ...

He's put out of his misery soon after by a possessed SUV. "Festival" tells the story of two people who found love on a night that neither wanted to go out. The ...

Employees were outfitted with Go Pro cameras and tasked with one mission: travel to exotic places. Let me break out the violin. Created by Cloudfactory, the campaign began last year when 14,000 global employees documented their travel plans. Boy, did they ever. Employees ate, drank and connected with locals at each destination. Travelers walk that fine line of being a tourist in a new place while also becoming a "local."

When Skeletor is happy, there's a pep in his step, music in his head and everything is so right. Skeletor leaves his dark house and dives ...
  • NEW! Using Sound, Lexter Helps Blind Athlete Run Unassisted
    Lexter, a Swedish sound design company, used technology to improve the life of Oscar Widegren, an 18-year-old blind athlete who typically runs with the help of one of his parents. The company, aiming to improve the lives of many via technology, used sound to allow Widegren to run in a straight line, unassisted. To Widegren, this is the definition of freedom and independence. "The Impossible Run" came to fruition when Lexter created an invisible sound corridor that enables a blind person to run via hyper-directional sound. A wall was built that enables different sounds on ...
