Mother Teresa, Jesus and Gandhi. All three put mankind before themselves. In UNICEF Sweden’s Christmas campaign, the three of them gather to talk about who is the most generous. They also get a visit from a new guy, who clicked a UNICEF banner. The campaign wants to show how easy it is to do something good today, compared to back in the days. Today you can simply buy something in UNICEF’s online store. A saved life is just a few clicks away. The campaign, called The Good Guys, consists of three films – The Dinner Party, The Greatest Story and Jesus Goes Online.

Turkish Airlines is continuing the battle between Kobe Bryant and Leo Messi in “The Selfie Shootout”, following on from the viral success of Legends on board in 2012. In the new commercial, which emphasises the global network of the airline, Kobe and Messi resume their friendly rivalry by trading “selfies” from exotic locations, such as the Red Square in Moscow; The Great Wall of China; the Maldives; Bangkok; and Mount Kilimanjaro, all of which are destinations Turkish Airlines flies to. Throughout the commercial, the competitive athletes are seen at various airports consulting the airline’s destination boards for their flights. In the ad’s final shot, Messi takes a “selfie” in Sultanahmet Square in Istanbul, only to be photobombed by Kobe.

Wieden+Kennedy London have continued their tradition of turning the Hanbury Street office window into a Christmas installation, this year providing passers-by with a peek into a chocolate coin factory. Dan & Dave’s Chocolate Coin Factory is a magical copper and brass chocolate coin factory that transforms 1 pound coins into special gold Belgian chocolate coins, with all proceeds collected going towards building a new playground for Millfields Community School in Hackney, East London. When a coin is inserted into a slot beside the window, the machine comes to life and performs a routine, before popping out a chocolate coin at the other end. The installation, named after Dan Wieden and David Kennedy, will run until 6th January from 9am to 8pm, 7 days per week. See the machine in action on the dedicated microsite: wkchocolatecoinfactory.com
Jay Z’s short film, “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film”, is one of five nominations for Best Music Video at the Grammy Awards. The 10 minute short film, designed to promote Jay Z’s latest album album Magna Carta Holy Grail, was shot over six hours on July 10, 2013, at the Pace Gallery in New York City. The performance was inspired by “The Artist is Present”, a 2010 installation by Serbian performance artist Marina Abramović in which she made herself available to quietly interact with visitors, one by one. Jay Z invited artists, rappers, performance artists, film directors and others from the fine arts industry to attend his installation, giving guests the opportunity to participate or just watch as he performed his music live. The edited music video aired on HBO on August 2, alongside a 30 minute documentary.
