ROOT.

With origins dating back to the 1700's this 'truly interesting and contemplative quaff' contains the ingredients birch bark, smoked black tea, sugarcane, essence of sassafras, orange and lemon peel, allspice, anise, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg.
Sounds delicious and the packaging's not too shabby either.

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP.

'Notorious street artist Banksy, whose work has decorated his home town of Bristol and Israel's West Bank barrier, has turned his hand to film-making.'

'Exit Through The Gift Shop will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film festival on Sunday. It is described as the story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on him.'

"Exit Through The Gift Shop is one of those films that comes along once in a great while, a warped hybrid of reality and self-induced fiction while at the same time a totally entertaining experience." says John Cooper, director of the festival.

Brilliant new campaign from Diesel championing stupidity and making aware it's advantages over being smart. Also, a great way of integrating collection photography with campaign design/imagery.

FRESH!
