BONUS DAY: Svedka Vodka billboards...

Svedka here and clear billboard
We saw Svedka Vodka's Fembots have more fun creative early this week at Daily Billboard, now here's the rest of the new tongue-in-cheek campaign.

These billboards are witty, cleverly aimed at their target market and reinforce practical applications for the spirit as a mixer.

They also make the most of this fantastic female robot character they'd created, who is really eye-catching and oddly alluring.
Svedka missed messages billboard
Daily Billboard especially likes the amusing gay-friendly billboards in support of 'robot-robot marriage' and the proud 'We're here. We're clear. Get used to it'.

DUO DAY: The Borgias TV billboards...

The Borgias Original Crime Family billboard
This 'Original crime family' teaser for Showtime's The Borgias series makes for an arresting visual with its questionable mix of religion and implied sexual content.

The second creative for the new period costume drama has Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons as 'Pope Alexander', along with the rest of the criminal cast from 15th century Italy at the height of the Renaissance. Especially clever is the arch providing a halo effect behind the man of the cloth.

Looking at these creatives Daily Billboard can't help but be reminded of Showtime's billboards for The Tudors, which also had its share of historic political and sexual intrigue.

These television billboards were photographed along Sunset Boulevard on March 4 and March 10, 2011 respectively.

Kate Winslet Mildred Pierce TV billboards...

Kate Winslet Mildred Pierce billboard
Daily Billboard wonders if television is getting more and more sophisticated these days. It's not just the special effects and big scale productions, but also the Oscar-winning talent it's been attracting of late to helm new mini-series and TV shows.

Take for example Kate Winslet starring in HBO's Mildred Pierce, collaborating with director, Todd Haynes, the Oscar-nominated writer of Far From Heaven.

FASHION WEEK: Asics Sound Mind Sound Body billboards...

Asics Sound Mind Sound Body billboard
Welcome to another FASHION WEEK here at Daily Billboard and to kick us off we have some great sportswear which is both stylish and extremely practical.

These sporty billboards are in honour of the L.A. Marathon which takes place today (and Daily Billboard will be running in).
Sound mind sound body asics billboard
I love this campaign for Asics, which shows all the worry, stress, pain and negative thoughts being shed, in the first creative as the runner is encouraged by the crowds of onlookers, and secondly by the sense of accomplishment and freedom you get just from running.

Obviously it helps if you look good when you're doing it.
Asics Sound Mind Sound Body billboard
The first billboard was snapped along Santa Monica Boulevard, ironically above fast food chain McDonalds, on February 22 and the other runner creatives on March 6, 2011 along Sunset Boulevard. All the billboards can be found along the 'Stadium to Sea' L.A. Marathon course this year.
