I So Wish.

Thunder Cats live action trailer using Hollywood actors: Brad Pitt, Vin Diesel and Hugh Jackman among others. All the effects were done frame by frame in Photoshop. The footage was edited in Adobe Premiere. Someone worked very hard on this and did an excellent job. From this person’s bio:

Animator illustrator who loves movies. I’m presently working as an artist in a videogame company.

Thunder Cats, Ho! :)

Puppy vs. Advertising Agency

Checklist: milk, bananas, apples, band-aids, Jen’s various beauty supplies, candy bar… oh, and a creepy picture of a puppy on a bed of roses. Jen pointed this out as we walked past one of those annoying aisle cards that stick out a little too far. This is just bad advertising/marketing/whatever—err, maybe not cause I’m writing about it? Nah, it’s bad. It doesn’t make me want to buy their toilet paper. When I think of dogs and poop, I don’t imagine cute puppies rolling around in fake flower petals.

Nice placement of those rose petals. C’mon Mr. or Ms. Designer who works for Kleenex’s over-paid advertising agency. Did you really need to skimp on a few extra rose petals? That’s a puppy you’re humiliating!

Poor thing never had a chance at protecting its dignity in the hands of some recent college advertising graduate.
