Fake LEGO Ads.


These advertisements for LEGO from agency DDB aren’t real, in as far as they certainly weren’t commissioned by the brickmaker, but they’re still pretty awesome.

Chaplin vs Hitler

Leonardo da Vinci once said: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, and architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe adopted the motto “Less is more” to describe his extreme simplicity, by enlisting every element and detail to serve multiple visual and functional purposes (such as designing a floor to also serve as the radiator, or a massive fireplace to also house the bathroom).

Even after 500 years Leonardo’s words are true and this rule is still widely used in design and advertising. It may sound  a bit contradictory, but simple things often require much more brain power to create than the most complicated stuff. And it always strikes you when something completely simple is capable of conveying so much more than you expect.

James May’s Lego House


At my house, on the few shows that spends most of its time on my television every day is Top Gear.  (The British version, not that weak U.S. version.)  During one episode, Jeremy Clark made a joke about a co-host – James May- building a nuclear submarine out of Legos, which I thought was quite a random comment.  But after looking for some exciting new Top Gear clips, I found out there was some truth the Jeremy Clark’s quip.  Until now, an entire dwelling made of Lego blocks was just a dream for lunatics and Lego futurists.   With the use of thousands of people and millions of bricks Mr May has built the worlds first Lego House. It has a bed, windows, two floors and a working shower and toilet. It looks amazing and is quite sick for someone who didn’t use instructions.
