Best of #SpikesAsia: Day 1

The Spikes Asia 2014 Festival of Creativity is off to a flying start. Sessions today include LuckySparks' F*!k It talk, 180 Amsterdam's Creative MBA and DDB Present's Casey Neistat's 'Honest in Storytelling'.

We got our own Coke bottles. What up!

See all our Spikes Asia 2014 coverage here 

We've hunted down and rounded up the best Tweets (and Instagrams) under the #SpikesAsia hashtag so you don't have to.

Keep an eye on this page, we'll keep updating it periodically until the day's done. 

For the lucky ones at the festival, keep Tweeting, you never know when your 140 character flight of literary genius will make the cut. 

Sound advice. Mother would be so proud. 

"My mom told me once, if I wasn't sure of the dress code for an event, overdress" says a tuxedo-attired @CaseyNeistat
 
 
This man, knows his onions
 
 
 
Seriously HavasCafe, are you cheating? Or have you laced the coffee?

Will it make my tongue blue?

 
Huh? What? Be kind, rewind. 
 
 
 
Yes. SAVE US!
 
 
 
Revelation 2.0 (See what I did there?)
 
“Just put ‘2.0’ at the end of any randomly selected word and congratulations, you have an idea.” #SpikesAsia
 
 
The Candyman Can
 

 

Aieee!! Take it away! Take it AWAY! (Yes, I'm aware I put 'it' in this article. But y'know. Schadenfreude, pain shared and all that)

Boom!

Hollywood invests in its creativity up front. Agencies don't do that. They want money #newagencymodels #SpikesAsia
 

I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN SUNSHIIINNEEE! (this song is coming up a lot today)

 
 
Yes. Those days are gone. (I can keep the cheesy songs coming forever)
We were all happier when families would gather to watch 60 second tvc's after supper, but those days are gone - Johnny Hornby #SpikesAsia
 
He welcomes him, the master, yes he does, my precioussss
 
 
We salute the shameless slickness
 

We still don't know why this is happening

 

Ponderous ponderable ponderings

 

Havas Cafe is just killing it today

@HavasCafeSIN “I don’t know what ‘engagement’ is. But I’m going to put it in the deck anyway and hope no-one asks.” #SpikesAsia #FakeItTillYouMakeIt

 

Calling, but not calling, your talk a naughty word seems to be in fashion today

 

Well no wonder everyone's complaining it's hot in there (no, don't take off all your clothes)

 

You know you've made it when Coke has a special vending machine just for you

Jessica Triffitt ‏@littlejessiet  55m Nearly there! Anyone for a Coke break? #SpikesAsia pic.twitter.com/ygqexP6YWp
 
 
With matching bottles. Of course. 
 
 

Watch what you say @HavasCafeSIN. Someone may be listening.

OverheardatHavasCafe ‏@HavasCafeSIN  12m “Yesterday the 20-year old intern asked me how to receive a fax on his iPhone.” #SpikesAsia

 

Some speakers resort to shameless bribery.

 

Our brand new reporter, Adrian Tse, burns with dedication for Spikes Asia

Adrian Peter Tse @AdrianPeterTse  ·  19h I broke up with Twitter a year ago. Now rekindling the lost love for Spikes Asia in Singapore.  #myfirstTweet #spikesasia @CampaignAsia
 
 
And the first #SpikesAsia seminar quotes start to come in.
 
 
 
This one is sad but, alas, true:
 
 
 
Everyone is suspiciously witty @HavasCafeSIN
 
@HavasCafeSIN “Everything seems to be consumer-focused nowadays. Why can’t we put the focus back on the important people: us.” #SpikesAsia
 
 
Let it out, just let it all out. 
 
@CampaignAsia
 
 
Hey maybe you have to look like one to win one
 
@elliezaid I'm a Young Creative at #SpikesAsia! :) Forgive the lion's mane.
 
 
We're okay with that too
 
 
 
Word
 
 
 
Who needs psychiatrists anymore?
 

 

My eyes are up here

 

Uh no, that doesn't look awkward at all!

Day 1 of #SpikesAsia and we have one cool tool of the social media trade: souped up Padcaster! #OgilvySpikes
 
 
 
Or maybe, he was a ninja advertising executive
 
@AvtarRamSingh Think I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but just for a split second. #SpikesAsia
 
Because, it would be mAAaaDness
 

 

Geddit? Geddit? #turquoisepoop

@ogilvydo The new Microsoft operating system - 'Windows Ate' #OgilvySpikes #SpikesAsia #sugarhigh
