The 10 Best Commercials of 2011 Many people groaned last winter when it became clear that Super Bowl XLV would be packed bumper to bumper with automotive ads. It's not a category that's exactly wowed with its creativity in recent years. It was a pleasant surprise, then, when many of the car spots proved not only tolerable but wonderful. Now, with the year almost passed, it's become clear that two of those ads in particular—Chrysler's "Born of Fire" by Wieden + Kennedy and Volkswagen's "The Force" by Deutsch—weren't just among that evening's best spots. They turned out to be among the year's best. Those two ads are joined by a third car commercial, Nissan Leaf's "Gas Powered Everything" by TBWA\Chiat\Day, in Adweek's ranking of The 10 Best Commercials of 2011, presented here. Elsewhere, the list celebrates work across a wide variety of products, themes, styles, and geographies. Congratulations to all the agencies and clients on the list, and the creative-services companies that helped bring their visions to life. 10.

Sponsored Content:Sponsored Content:Sponsored Content:Sponsored Content:Sponsored Content: What The Best Brands Will Do In 2014 What Happened When One Woman Had Her Picture Photoshopped In 25 Different Countries “Make me look beautiful.” That’s what Esther Honig asked 40 photo editors to do — in over 25 countries. Using the service-sharing site Fiverr, Honig, a human interest reporter, sent a picture of herself to be photoshopped around the world to see just how much cultural values are applied to standards of beauty. The results throw the idea of “the perfect woman” into sharp relief. Honig found that individuals from every country applied a distinct perspective on beauty to her image. Seeing her image manipulated in so many dimensions had a profound impact on Honig’s own self-perception. Honig is reluctant to draw a “moral of the story” from the project, which is ongoing. Still, the project dispels the myth of a singular beauty norm. Check out the rest of the incredible images below.

Samuel Muston: What's in a name? If you're christening a restaurant, then quite a lot - Features - Food & Drink There is, of course, no road map to success when it comes to names, but I would suggest that the collision of the word "egg" and "slut" doesn't exactly encourage the appetite which, along with being memorable and snappy, is the only real goal of restaurant naming. Eggslut falls into that dubious category known as "quirky", a group in which the egregious Scoff & Banter belongs. This UK-wide chain, which offers "food with heart that feeds the soul", has presumably been so named to suggest a rolled sleeve, let's-get-down-to-business informality. In fact, it makes the place sound like a Leeds University student society. Less clear cut in the name game is the eponym. If you are Marcus Wareing it is just about permissible to call your redesigned restaurant MARCUS, even if it does sound a little Ceasarish, because some people will be visiting his establishment with the sole purpose of eating food touched by the hand of the great man himself. What are the alternatives?

Ad of the Day: The 'Guardian' Covers the Three Little Pigs as a Modern News Story Newspapers, we know, are under siege. Ravaged, in more ways than one, by the Internet and a digital age they failed to comprehend and adjust to, they're in a death struggle to remain editorially relevant and financially solvent. Out of touch, out of money … a joke, or at least a punch line—the future is grim. So, it's a bit shocking, then, that a newspaper—that symbol of supreme irrelevance—has delivered one of the most bracingly, brilliantly relevant ads of 2012 so far. On its own, it won't save the newspaper business. But the Guardian's new campaign, from BBH, squarely acknowledges that old newspaper journalism is dead, and posits that the paper will lead the way in harnessing every aspect of new media—and the communities that sustain and evolve it—to build an entirely modern news-gathering service, one that not only keeps up with its audience but once again guides them through the world they seek to understand.
