…Justin Gignac is selling his wants?

Wants For Sale

New York trash extraordinaire Justin Gignac is at it again, and this time he’s got some wants that he’s looking to get.

Called Wants For Sale, it’s a series of paintings that he and his girlfriend have painted of the things that that he and his girlfriend have wanted, and they’re all being sold for the actual price of the actual item.

There’s a painting of an iPhone that sells for $649.17, a painting of a Guitar for GH2 that sold for $64.98, and Financial Security that sells for $1 Mil.

It’s an interesting concept, and judging by the results so far, one that is doing quite well for them.

Anybody interested in buying a painting of a Ferrari that I just did?

…Your bag should make a statement?

Guardian Angel

Vlieger & Vandam make a variety of very unique bags, including this one called Guardian Angel that makes a statement about people’s perceptions and fear of violence compared to the number of crimes actually committed. It’s even been included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Now that’s a bag that really says something.

…Mini makes custom billboards?

Mini Billboard

Mini is known for being small, but their advertising definitely goes big. Their latest creation is Motorby, a program where interactive billboards will welcome select Mini owners with a personalized greeting. Users of the Motorby program submit information about themselves to Mini, and receive a special key fob in return. Then, when they drive under specially equipped billboards in Chicago, New York, Miami and San Francisco, a message lights up saying things like “Nice Hair Harrold!” or “New Shoes Suze?”. The program ought to be fun until someone hits a pole trying to take a picture of their personalized message or someone hacks it to say something a little less family oriented. Given the choice though, I’d gladly take one that put up the words “Get Off Your Damn Cell Phone” every time I drove by.

…Cabs make great cows?

Bull Cab

How do you get the attention of a New Yorker? Cover their ubiquitous taxi in fake brown and white cowhide and put a set of bull horns on top of it. The cabs were created to advertise for a two-day Invitational Bull Riders event, and I’m guessing they served their purpose. Though the fares were cheap, most cab rides only lasted about six seconds.
