Clap your hands to McVities

Today I’ve seen another as hilarious as genius advert from McVities: The Flying Squirrel!! Awesome. So, how come a brand decides to promote their new breakfast snacks by using a super-powered flying squirrel? I don’t know and I don’t wanna know. I just LOVE it. McVities have been using animals and furry characters coming out from their packages for a while. Having ideas like these and take them to production, make them happen, and succeed. I can’t do nothing but standing up and give them an applause. Cheers guys!

#EpicStrut

Right. Here’s the best tv commercial that 2015 has seen so far. Money Super Market launched this hilarious and awesome advert last Jaunary and still makes me smile today. Again, there’s no need of special FX and super post production to create a brilliant piece of work.

The Vintage Furniture Flea

Founded in 2010 from a gap in the market and some serious love for old-world furnishings, Judy’s founded ‘The Vintage Furniture Flea’ in our London residency, Bethnal Green. Covering furniture and homewares, textiles and electricals, the event was to be a mid-century celebration, a showcase of decoration from the fifties and beyond, all bound by affordability. After the launch in November 2010, we knew we had a hit.

Now visiting London three times a year, The Vintage Furniture Flea has seen many an accolade. Featured in BBC H&A, Timeout, Stylist and more, 2011 saw the Flea named ‘Best Vintage Fair’ according to the Vintage Guide to London. Showcasing the kitsch and the collectible [think Ercol to egg-timers] it’s one to watch out for.
