Practical business card

Broke Bike Alley in Fernie, BC, Canada could use a little website update, but they got a winner with the business card of Bike Tech Terry Miller. Not sure if anyone else in that bike shop got the same card, but that doesn't really matter for this story. It is a very smart and cool business card / tool.

Pilot Frixion stop motion

The new Pilot Frixion pen lets you write and erase and in the crafty hands of Martin Allais a very cute story com to life. Although designed to do guerrilla marketing for the Pilot Frixion, this 90 second stop motion artwork clearly also promotes Boolab quite nicely, the folks who created the animation.

The question now is, can you do this with a Pilot Frixion?

Pizza, pizza

Pro triathlete Patrick Evoe from Austin, TX is sponsored by Little Caesars and each pizza slice on his helmet represents a good finish, fast bike split etc. The idea is based on college football helmets and would suit me well too. Pizza, pizza

Book it

Although Facebook has the word book inside its name, it really wasn't anything along those lines until now. French mobile phone and internet provider Bouygues Télécom offered a 1,000 fans of their facebook page a book version of their personal facebook page. That gave them 16,000 fans in a hurry.

Now that is a faceBOOK

Gardening inside

You may live somewhere where you just do not have access to a garden or a yard, but you don't have to miss out on that gardening sensation. Soil is an interesting cutlery design by Vladimir Rachev that looks strikingly like garden tools. What has this to do with guerrilla marketing? Nothing. We just love it.

Sponge it

When you are in the business of selling cleaning products you could easily choose a regular paper business card, or you could step outside the box like Mundo Do Condominio and get yourself a unique sponge business card.

Now that is total and utter BS

We all know folks who are full of bullshit, and now you have a chance to point out to those people how full of it they really are. Karmic Bullshit is sanitized bovine excrement and you can send it out in the cute little jar (inside a box) or Karmic BS will do it for you. You can choose from a variety of tag lines such as "Saw this. Thought of you." "I've had enough of yours." etc. All FDA approved seemingly. Happy holidays.

Pop up - poop

The currently ongoing Pop Up Lisboa 2010 festival features video art, sculpture, fine arts, illustration, urban art, painting, design, photography and more. The pigeon is the symbol for this Lisbon, Portugal event and pigeon poop stickers seemingly made a lot of sense for some guerrilla marketing action and could be found all over the city. Nice work.

Money talks

Today we are not featuring a story about advertising or marketing, but a real life nightmare story out Vail, Colorado. As the Vail Daily had reported, an alleged hit-and-run driver may not face felony charges because District Attorney Mark Hulbert seemingly thinks that the accused driver Martin Joel Erzinger (a director in private wealth management at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Denver) might get job problems if facing felony charges.

“Felony convictions have some pretty serious job implications for someone in Mr. Erzinger's profession, and that entered into it,” Hurlbert said. “When you're talking about restitution, you don't want to take away his ability to pay.”

Steven Milo who was hit by Martin Joel Erzinger's car said in a letter to District Attorney Mark Hurlbert: "“Mr. Erzinger struck me, fled and left me for dead on the highway. Neither his financial prominence nor my financial situation should be factors in your prosecution of this case.”

Please spread this story and sign the petition here and check out more about this story on slowtwitch.

UPDATE: 7:30pm

Now the story is on The Huffington Post, Reuters, ABC News and New York Times and many more

So social media does work. :-)

Mc Rib history lesson

Thanks to McDonald's we finally know what kind of food fetish Ben Franklin and other historic figures had. Plus we also realize that if they had no shame sporting a barbecue sauce mustache, neither should we. Still not sure though it'll be via a McRib.

Looking good there Ben Franklin.

Real people - no script

BMW unscripted is described as "No script, just real people." Featured here is Sabine Schmitz who drives the Ring Taxi on the Nürburgring in Germany. Racing fans of course now what the Nürburgring is all about, but that really doesn't matter here, it is all about the passion of Sabine Schmitz for her gig - and her BMW.

We are curious if the taxi passengers also still smiling?

Foursquare follies

Foursquare just announced that ousting a 'fake mayor' is on their radar and they will soon have a tool in place that lets a business owner get rid of such a person and let the real mayor step up. Yeah right. Where on the priority list of a business owner would that be? :-)

And who makes sure that I am the rightful mayor of this park?

Halloween Krispy Kreme style

While most folks struggled with the Halloween candy buying decision, employees of Krispy Kreme got 50 packs of mini Krispy Kreme donuts to hand out to trick and treat kids. Not only is this a nice gesture from the company to its employees, but also works quite nicely as a guerrilla marketing action. Plus it may also be a sign of things to come at Krispy Kreme.
