This spec commercial for JCPenny won an award at Cannes 2008 film festival but some truth ignoring parents don’t want you to see it because, well, it’s a really good freakin’ idea.
UPDATE: All the commotion created over Epoch’s “fake” JCP ad got their Bronze Lion snatched back from them.
It’s reported that, the organizers of the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival talked with everyone involved, and Epoch Films, requested to withdraw the entry for a spot, titled “Speed Dressing”.
CEO Philip Thomas is said to be “pleased” with the outcome, and happy that the festival didn’t have to actually revoke the award. They are taking the work off the Cannes Lions 2008 website and striking the win from the record.

I woke up with 2 songs stuck in my head today. First i have “God, That’s Good!” from Sweeney Todd. ( not the crappy Johnny Depp one) and second one is “Hey Man (Now You’re Really Living)” by the Eels. It would be cool if they would play one at a time in my head, but thats not he case.
I’ve found my self going back a lot to check out kurt halsey site this week. His work is just awesome and I love the message in all of his paintings. Also kind of reminds me a lot of Craig Thompson’s work.
A trailer for Joss Whedon’s 36-minute three-part SCi-Fi internet musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has hit the interwebs. Neil Patrick Harris stars as the title character, a low-rent supervillain who’s trying to impress the cute girl from the laundromat he’s too shy to talk to (Felicia Day of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), defeat his nemesis, superhero Captain Hammer (played by Firefly’s Nathan Fillion) and gain entry into the Evil League of Evil.
