Droga5 continues the disruption

Scion’s Weird, Right? campaign is anything but.

Content consumption has evolved over the Internet years. From being straightforward to simply outrageously weird. Now that’s disruption… in a very good way.

So Droga5 and Scion teamed up to bring you Weird, Right? and yes, it is… weird… right?

 

Two things that never die… stock photos and man buns.

Toyota Mirai is fuelled by bullsh*t

To the haters, bullshit actually takes you places.

toyota-mirai-fuelled-by-bullshit

It could be a literal thought, but no matter what, Toyota believes so. And to prove it, they will literally take their Mirai and run it on simply, bullshit.

“Fuelled by Everything” is the title for a series of ads by Toyota. And who else would have come out with such a title but Droga5.

The Toyota Mirai is a fuel cell vehicle powered by Hydrogen. So, bullshit, or to be polite, cow manure is simply filled with it.

I’d say the engineer in the video would explain it better. So, without further ado… here’s episode 1.

A turning point from the inside out

Aubrey Plaza & The Super Bowl

Newcastle’s Band of Brands

newcastle-aubrey-plaza-bandofbrands

Droga5 and Aubrey Plaza (@EvilHag)has a thing for sarcasm. Can’t blame them when brands spend US$4million for 30 seconds of airtime during the Super Bowl.

And so Newcastle Brown Ale, infamous for being overly British and disliking Americans, decided to “crowdfund” that ridiculous-priced advertising spot with any brands out there. Earlier, a “crowdfund” video was launched – featuring Plaza of course – where a small contribution to the spot will get your brand’s logo on the Big Game. Called the “Band of Brands”, you may submit your proposal here at NewcastleBandOfBrands.com.

“At first we tried to sneak our way into the Big Game by entering a popular commercial contest put on by a certain snack chip brand, but that didn’t work out for us. Now we’re trying to leverage ‘strength in numbers’ to see what that does for us,” said Priscilla Flores Dohnert, brand director for Newcastle Brown Ale. “Everyone loves a great underdog story. What’s more ‘underdog’ than being short on cash and not having the right to advertise during the game?”

Gold medalist and four-time World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn knows what it’s like to sit on top of the world. Even though she’s been skiing since she was 7 years old, her trek up hasn’t always been easy. On the path to recovery from her second knee surgery, Lindsey is determined to conquer the mountain many more times.

Sloane Stephens – Pro Tennis Player

The WILL to stop talking and earn it.
To be young, full of energy, and in the world’s spotlight can be both a blessing and curse. Having frequented the semi-finals of several major international tournaments, Sloane Stephens knows the pressure of living up to the public’s expectations and choose to live life on her terms.
