Re: TV ads

Yes, thats the one.. notice at the end the emphasis on "The Final eidtion".
Why are they making a point of saying that in that way?
Oh and FYI I assumed they were all sisters judging by the way the pairs all had similar hair styles..
EDIT:
I just found this on youtube:

Why do so many people think underground bunkers are the way forward? - What happens in an earthquake? - If its anything like the film 2012 I'd rather be in a plane at 40,000ft

Re: TV ads

@Sprite, Its a year-long £5.6 million marketing campaign, Nothing more and nothing less.
Quote
The advert sees a young male building a wooden boat in preparation for the end of the world, but it is a crowd of beautiful women who join him aboard, not two of every animal. It was created by Ponce Buenos Aires and adapted for Europe by BBH. PR for the campaign will be handled by Mischief.

Kieran Danaher, Lynx brand manager at Unilever UK, said: “Following the phenomenal success of Lynx Excite this year, we believe that Lynx 2012 – The Final Edition can really take things to the next level.
“As a brand we continually strive to innovate and push boundaries with creative marketing campaigns, and the launch of Lynx 2012 – The Final Edition is set to do just that and more. We’ve got some very exciting activity lined up for this project, so watch this space.”

Re: TV ads

Just seen (rather than news coverage) the Vinnie Jones heart CPR ad. Whilst its not a product as such I think its just the kind of "ad" that will produce results.
Well done whoever thought it up.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I don't! Everytime I see something referring to the 2012 event based on the film I can't help but wonder if there is actually something going to happen that they're dropping hints about because all the governments are doing the sneaky and keeping quiet just like in the film.

Re: TV ads

The Mayan 13th Baktun ends on 21/12/2012. The Mayan calender is in 20 Baktun cycles

Re: TV ads

At least the Mayan calendar starts at a specific astronomical point in time:
see http://davidatriedes.org/presentation1.html as a simple explanation.
Unlike the Hijri, Hebrew, Julian or Gregorian calendar that seem to start at some vague point in time, (like the estimation of the birth year of Jesus Christ.
If I had a choice I'd prefer to adopt the Igbo calendar with it's 4 day week (2 days of which are the weekend).
If the population "split shift" the weekends, everybody would have a job and work 2 days out of 4.
