Super clever alien invasion advert from Greenpeace:

Swimming With Sea-Monkeys

Swim With Sea-Monkeys is a brilliant interactive website where you can turn yourself, and your friends, into sea monkeys and swim around a tank. An optional extra is adding your face, or those of your friends, onto the creatures. It is also supported by some brilliantly illustrated posters (below).

Now in case you were wondering;

Sea-Monkeys are a true miracle of nature. They exist in suspended animation inside their tiny eggs for many years. The instant-life crystals, in which the eggs are enclosed, preserve their viability and help to extend still further their un-hatched life span! Sea-Monkeys are real Time-Travelers asleep in biological time capsules for their strange journey into the future!

The joy of watching Sea-Monkeys grow offers a lot more than just pure fun. It is one of the outstanding educational experiences of a lifetime, because the entire life-cycle of these unique creatures are fully recreated. Conceived in 1960 as a biological novelty, the “fantasy” has transformed into brilliant reality.

Chinese take out promotion

Thinking of advertising on food containers would normally bring to mind the lower end of the advertising market, and objects such as coffee cups and pizza boxes. However, Rockstar Games have totally changed that perception with the inspired idea of using left over branded boxes originally sent to video game reviewers. Promoting the video game Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DSNow, they distributed the left over boxes to well respected Chinese take-out restaurants.  They save money Rockstar games gets some more promotion – brilliant (via Eat Me Daily).
