China’s Singles’ Day is a big up-yours to Valentine’s Day, with people buying each other gifts to celebrate or commiserate being single. Single’s Day is celebrated on November 11 and is the biggest online shopping day in the world.

This year House of Cards Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has promoted the event by encouraging people to buy sunglasses to cover their identity and a big black coat.

Taste the Bush

The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled against an Australian wine company Premier Estates ad because “taste the bush” could be interpreted as girl down-under time.

The ASA ruled the ad was a “reference to oral sex, particularly given that it was accompanied with the image of the wine glass positioned directly in front of the woman’s crotch…Because the ads clearly referenced oral sex and featured an alcoholic product, we concluded that they linked alcohol with sexual activity and were in breach of the Code.”

The ad will not be able to run in the UK.

Christmas Nightmares

This holiday season, agency Chandelier has partnered with Hallmark to launch the ‘#KeepsakeIt Together’ campaign.

In four different nightmare scenarios: a Christmas without ham, a neurotic mum, new parents who think they are the first to ever have a baby and trying to organise a chaotic family photo.

No seriously where is the ham?
