Uniqlock Scores, Gawker Goes Gorilla, Rio Sees Future, Ludacris Flows Mobile
- Repeating successes at One Show and the Clios, Uniqlo's "Uniqlock" (agency: Projector) won the Cannes Cyber Grand Prix. "Year Zero" for NIN (agency: 42 Entertainment) took Best Viral; "Sol Comments" (Mediafront Oslo) won Online Advertising.
- Gawker chose Gorilla Nation to sell its ads in Canada. The deal is exclusivo, no word if it's multi-year.
- Diggin' R&R's Tarot-style print campaign for the Rio Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Adfreak isn't sold, though.
- WeMix and VoodooVox enable anyone to "drop a flow" (THEIR WORDS! NOT -- MINE!) from their phones and broadcast them. Ludacris is sponsoring. More cringey self-laud: "VoodooVox is the leading In-Call Media revolution." What does that mean?
- MTLB is upset about PETA, the one-sidedness of 30 Days (esp. the carnivore-meets-vegan episode), and changing people via persecution instead of supplying appealing alternatives to destructive lifestyles.

I like the show, 30 Days. I, too, was surprised that George did not come with more "ammo" to defend his right to hunt. He could of mentioned that tens of thousands of deer die from starvation. And that hunting them is more humane than starving to death.
Or that a lot of hunters do not live near stores or have the money to buy meat and hunting supports their family. Don't get me wrong. I'm not a gun activists. I hate the NRA. But, I don't have a problem with hunting for food. For sport, yes, but food, no. I do feel we can do better in the way we process the meat. The FDA should investigate any cruelty towards livestock.
Perhaps PETA wants to let loose all those cows so they can join all those wild cows we have.
