Man like beer

Youtube Video

There's nothing more beautiful than seeing a man at his most natural and a new spot for Speight's Summit lager by Publicis Mojo that was directed by The Sweet Shop's Steve Ayson has got all the required elements to become a new contender for beer ad of the early summer (ie man standing in river, man growing luxurious beard, man hurling rock, man yelling from mountaintop, man chasing deer, man punching boar and, of course, man drinking beer). It's certainly much better—and much easier to understand—than man being teleported and running around the Savannah being chased by a Lion

The chanted soundtrack ('And we can grow beards if we want to') is also top class, although it's still hard to beat the recent Puccini song in the recent Carlton Draught slow motion ad ('Slow motion/Men in slow motion/Men look much better in slow motion/It makes me want to sing quite loud/ Now, now, I want a Carlton Draught, chips and lasagne/Men in slow mo…/In slow mo…/Slow motion/Blah blah blah…/Slow motion. slow motion ad.')

Kiwi entrepreneur looks to shake up the recruitment market with video CVs

Earlier this month, a young Auckland professional made headlines for using Facebook to try and land his dream job. Edward McKnight used ads on the social media site to target ASB staff as a way of applying for the role of youth and innovation sponsorship manager at the bank. And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up. Hoping to do just that is the new recruitment platform PreviewMe. Set to have its beta version go live early next month, the website hopes to reduce the pain points of both candidates and employers by introducing video to the recruitment process.
