BBH: Audi RS6 Gymnasts spot

In this visually stunning ad to promote the new Audi RS6, created by bbh and shot by Paul Hunter, a group of gymnasts perform choreo­graphed routines that represent different aspects of the car’s perform­ance

“Every part of the Audi rs6 has been tweaked to deliver maximum performance,” explains art director Jim Hilson.

“So in this commercial gymnasts dramatise performance from every part of the car – from the headlights, to the pistons, crankshaft, twin-turbos and v10 engine block.”

The dynamic movements of the gym­nastics are choreographed to a soundtrack created by Nick Rapaccioli and Neil Barnes (best known as Leftfield) that uses real sounds of the Audi RS6 engine.

Designed to Help

Ever noticed that the packaging of headache remedies isn’t exactly easy on the eye? Ironic, really, that when you want something soothing to ail your pounding skull, the products available sit on the chemist’s shelf and SHOUT their MESSAGES OF URGENT HELP in bold, bright colours, seemingly without a care for your poor tired eyes and head. Now this (above), from Help Remedies, is a nice idea that turns down the volume on medicine packaging. Their packets of pills and plasters not only look great but are also made of 100% recycled paper pulp. And at $6 for 12 headache pills (or 8 plasters), that’s not much more than most of the more well-known brands, so these are no vanity purchase. Plus you’ll get to look just that little bit cooler when you’re ill.

Snuff Movies

Are publishers the new record labels? Barely a week goes by without news reaching us of some new lavishly packaged re-releases, while there seems to be a spirit of innovation in book marketing that has been sadly lacking in the music business. Chuck “Fight Club” Palahniuk’s new book Snuff (out 20 May) is a case in point. Honest have been asked to direct three spoof porn movie trailers to help flog it, the first being The Wizard of Ass (above).

Mapping the Blogosphere

Is the above from a new series of artworks by a contemporary designer, an explosion of scientific data, or a photograph of a strange creature discovered by deep-sea biologists? Well, while most of the following images are just crying out to be placed on a T-shirt, they actually have little to do with design, fashion, photography or art, and much more to do with cyberspace…
