I meant to post on the 2008 Clio Awards, but they somehow slipped by unblogged. I was lucky enough to circle ’round again today, and was delighted to find that two of the winners in the billboard category made use of my favorite tropes: fire and rainbows!
The first winner is truly stunning; it’s a self-destructing billboard, made for an ad for a courier company. The billboard counted itself down to its own demise.

These still images seem like a photo project of their own. Very nicely done. Here’s the youtube clip, in case you need your live-action kerplosion fix.

See all the Clio Award winners here. Some really fun stuff. I even saw some cats, but I held myself back.
