And this anti-smoking ad was made by Neogama/BBH, Brazil and featured in AdsofThe

Moose also was the first to let me know about this gorgeous vintage lock and key from the turn of the century, which sold on ebay (and was featured on Boing Boing). Thanks to Kevin, Andrew Jelesiewicz, and EBK for letting me know about it as well)

'Cesca let me know about the Italian band Tre Allegri Ragazzi Morti. In her words, "All the band members wear skull masks on their face during their performances. Since the band name means Three Merry Dead Guys, they pretend they died 13 years ago (when the band was created). They also don't want to reveal their real appearance to the media, so they wear their skull masks on stage and in front of the cameras." You can see their videos HERE.
