Flying Penguins. April 1st... mmmmm

But I thought penguins couldn't fly! That's amazing! But why Terry Gilliam? Is he replacing David Attenborough? Wicked!

This is so obviously an April fool.

Sorry, Scamp.

George said...

Great post production on the take off - very smart stuff.

Nice to see our tv license going to such a good, comedic use. now if only they applied those CGI skills to Doctor Who

Aaron said...

Rilap Loof's work is much in evidence today.

James Gordon-MacIntosh said...

Loved the fact that the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mirror both used this as their AFD stories ...

quite a nice full page guinness ad in the metro this morning

there was another BMW spoof about cars being installed with an anti dog pissing device.

I feel like I've come to work in exactly the same shirt as someone else.

i reckon this ad is good not only because the cgi/post prod is fantastic but also because it's one of the most finished AFD pranks i've ever seen and even had bbc breakfast and the wright stuff frothing over it haha. they had david attenborough in on the prank as well this morning when he was on bbc breakfast.. considerably more entertaining than that 'white season' promo you lot were wanking over...

I have become a nun and sealed my wing-wang-doodle up with pollyfilla.

I will eschew the cock-suck, the monkey-spank, albatrossing, the rustry trombone, the pirate, the fish supper, the cheese plate, the Sid James, the battle bridge basin, the rolling lawnmower, the hot fudge sundae, the broken jam jar and the driving test.

I've flushed the uppers, downers, vicodin, crack, H, charlie, skunk, billy, pills, special K and those monkey suppositories left over from Boxing Day.

I can't work out if everyone has fallen for this or if the papers are just piggybacking on the BBC's gag.

Scamp, never mind flying penguins...

where is that shit-hot itv work you promised us????

11.35 said...

Please God it wasn't the Boat Race ads.
But well done, the BBC, as they were wont to say on 'Points of View'.

Anonymous said...

Saw the ITV boat race ad in the paper. Nice.

Was that the one Scamp?

Anonymous said...

The "Making Of" film is now up as well:

Boat race ad was pony.
In fact, 'nice' is probably the worst complement you could get.

Anonymous said...

itv programmes are shit. the ads advertising them are shitter.

Mr Kite said...

The BBC spot is great. Fantastic idea brilliantly executed.

I got an erection (mentally), watching it.

I would have got a tingle in my lady business if it worked properly, something is wrong; it looks like a vandalized Badgers set, and not in a good way.

At least I’ve got the Reggae Reggae Sauce and deep heat to look forward to later

I like anonymous of 10.14.

"This is so obviously an April fool.

Sorry, Scamp."

Yeah, scamp, you berk, you so obviously fell for it. Derrr! Putting the director's name down as Rilap Loof just shows you had no clue whatsoever.

Or have I just been double April fooled by Anon 10.14 pretending to be thick. Or have you been fooled by my pretending to have been fooled by Anon 10.14 or...

kate moss said...

April Fool!

There's a nice big flesh-wand in my mouth and two in my arse right now!

I think.

I find it so difficult to count when I'm ripped to the tits on disco biscuits.

Thanks Kate Moss for your Comedy Gold.

Quite a plausible Fools on David this morning.

Hang on... We pay them our money. Then they spend shitloads of it to play an elaborate prank. On us.

Nice one Beeb.

Fucking April Fools, yeah.

Anonymous said...

Anon at 8.47. It's a genuine ad for BBC I-Player that theBBC decied to turn into an April Fool for the launch. Take a chill pill buddy

]-[appy Thought said...

I think this works whether it's April 1st or not. I'd say the timing was unfortunate even. Either way, one of the best bits of animal CGI I've seen in a long time. Kicks the crap out the singing dog.

Flying penguins FTBS*

*For The Black Swan. Jagetme?!

i think this is brilliant.
pencil for special effects at the very least.
silburn. genius.

Anonymous said...

careful with that word genius mister. or miss.

Anonymous said...

why?
the man shits all over juanny-come-lately and his one-trickers.

no, this isn't paul. said...

Seriously. Silburn basically invented the viral.

And he's done the bollocks in every medium. Award-winning, populist, with many different partners and on his tod.

He does piss on JC, I'm afraid, and if there is an advertising genius, he's it.

Anonymous said...

10.52 here. yes, he is very very talented. BUT HE'S NOT A FUCKING GENIUS.

Anonymous said...

Juanny versus Silly... now there's a blog poll i'd like to see.

Anonymous said...

I once heard that when critting a young team's book he and Squib pretended that Paul was a blind art director. So the team had to describe all their work to him.

Don't know if it's true... but I thought that was genius.

Anonymous said...

The blind art director was Vince when he worked with Ged Edmonssen. Vince has since made a full recovery

still not paul said...

Anon 12.13:

Paul does fit at least some of these definitions of the word:

gen·ius n
1.somebody with exceptional ability, especially somebody whose intellectual or creative achievements gain worldwide recognition
2.exceptional talent of a particular kind
3.somebody who has a particular skill
4.a special quality that characterizes a place, period, or people
5.in Roman mythology, a guardian spirit of a person, place, or institution
6.a demon or supernatural being
7.a strong influence, or somebody who exerts a strong influence

Paul is the Dogs bollocks.

I don't have bollocks anymore, dogs or otherwise.

I still haven't found my severed cock in a jar (that looks like lobster Bisque, or Pea and Ham soup by now).

Kite you're like Kate Moss, without the humour.

Anonymous said...

Silburn is far better than Cabral. It's a fact. Come on Scamp, do the poll:

"Would you rather have Paul Silburn's reel or Juan Cabral's reel."

Probably want to remind them of who did what, too...

Anonymous said...

Silburn gets my vote

not PS either said...

and mine

Anonymous said...

I can't choose! I'm too much of an arse licker

Anonymous said...

maybe you arse lickers should have a poll on who's got the tastiest bumhole

Anonymous said...

the Brazilian geezer at Fallon who did the Thorntans monkey ad gets my vote

Who gives a shit, we're all going to die of old age, liver problems or disease.

Can I vote for the team from shop who did the Thorntons ad?

Anonymous said...

i agree....

Anonymous said...

of course you do....we're the same person, trying do muster up some kind of support for ourself.

Anonymous said...

Why not a poll of best creatives of the last 20 - 30 years - Walter Campbell, Tom Carty, Paul Silburn, Juan Cabral, Tony McTeer, Trevor Beattie etc etc.

Let's not limit it to Messrs Silburn & Cabral.

What do you say Scamp?

Anonymous said...

Abbott? Webster?
And so on.........

agency IT guy said...

We always get forgotten.

The only reason you lot are even looking at this site
WHILST YOU SHOULD BE MAKING ADVERTISMENTS
is because of us.

How about a list of the best IT guys you have worked with.

The overweight, coffee drinking, donut guzzling, ginger guy with disgraceful body odour in our office is pretty good - not great with people, but he can fix a computer.

Scamp said...

Nice idea. Let's do Cabral v Silburn. I'll put it up on Friday.

Anonymous said...

Who's Paul Silburm?

Anonymous said...

Let's not do this Scamp. It's pretty stupid isn't it? Write something a bit more thought provoking for Friday - or is this blog the online equivalent of a red top rag? Who's sexier - Jordan or Kylie?

Anonymous said...

Silburn isn't it?

Don't get me wrong Cabrals box of youtube clippings are great, but Silburns ads make a huge variety of points.
Not just 'this interesting looking isn't it?, we'll tell you who it's for at the end'. some of them are interchangeable, if the gorilla was wearing a hawiaiin shirt it could've been a Sony ad.
