Condom Emojis

In the weeks ahead of Worlds AIDS Day 2015, condom brand Durex has launched a worldwide campaign to get a condom emoji to the youuuuths out there. So everyone can Netflix and chilli safely.

Global research commissioned by the Durex brand found emojis play a vital role in young people’s conversations around sex. The research found 80 per cent of 18-25 year olds find it easier to express themselves using emojis and more than half of respondents regularly using emojis when discussing sex

Barnes & Noble

US bookstore Barnes & Noble has launched its Christmas campaign featuring superstars Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, produced by Roberts + Langer DDB and directed by Grammy award-winning Swedish director Jonas Akerlund.

“Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are two of the most iconic artists in the world today and we’re thrilled to bring some of their magic to Barnes & Noble customers,” stated Glenn Kaplan, vice president and creative director at Barnes & Noble.

Amy Sacks, co-creative director at Roberts + Langer DDB, added: “This campaign is like a holiday card from Barnes & Noble to all of its customers. We hope that this little gift of a performance by these two incredibly talented artists will put a smile on people’s faces. We believe that the true warmth and the connection that Mr. Bennett and Lady Gaga share will be something viewers can feel.”
