Best of #SpikesAsia: Day 2

SINGAPORE - Judging by the activity on Twitter, Day 1 of Spikes was a blast involving bright blue cocktails, Casey Neistat and Casey Neistat's tuxedo. Now flex your thumbs because the Best Of #SpikesAsia Day 2 is just beginning.

Best of #SpikesAsia: Day 2

See all of our coverage on Spikes Asia 2014 here

Looking at the speaker schedule today, the morning kicks off with Havas' Yannick Bollore answering questions on Effective Brand Communication. Attendees also have a talk by  R/GA's Barry Wacksman on Transformation to look forward to and Lowe Profero's Wayne Arnold and DFS' Winnie Park chatting about micro-innovations in Asia-Pacific.

Now get hashtagging, we're eager to entertained.  

Catch up on Day 1's Best Of #SpikesAsia here
 

In the interest of research, I looked up the story as performed by the author Michael Rosen
I still don't see the similarities and now I'm effing terrified

 

In the words of comedian Sheng Wang: "Why do people say 'grow some balls'? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. 
Those things can take a pounding.” 


Well that's torn it. Why would I want to work there now? 

 

Proof that spammers are the living dead


Something tells me it's getting a bit crowded at #SpikesAsia



 

But really what would this industry be like without Buzzwords? (Mute)


And here's the trending naughty word of the day


 

George Burns once said: "If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made.
Very few people die past that age."


 

BUUUUUUUUUURRRRN!


The same has been said about first dates



Mind. Blown. 
 

 

This is what a 90s youth in Malaysia does to you. #scarred

 

Or how will the brand target me at the precise moment I'm flossing to send a location-directed drone to my window with a coupon for more floss? Duh. 

 

So if you can think like a woman, you're gold. (Good luck)

 

Someone needs an audit


And it's NOT because were 'dippy'!

@mohitjo #SpikesAsia women are like tea bags ...


And here they thought it was for the authenticity of buying it where it's made. Bubble. Burst. 

 
 
Because "the consumer is not a moron, she's your wife"? #sarcasm
 
@mohitjo #SpikesAsia most of the purchase being done by women then why so many men are producing these ads. #StrangeStatistics pic.twitter.com/Y5qpaFD02E
 

We can't wait
 
 

I see your content right there and I'm with you, girlfriend
 

 

Yeah! You gotta fight! For your right! (TO PARTAY)

@biefsantos If ideas are no longer up for debate, all creativity is lost. #SpikesAsia

 

And here I thought it'd be fruit cocktail flavoured with a hint of nuts

Look out, @SpikesAsia! I'm on the 'creative juice'! #SpikesAsia

 

Me! Me! Feed me? Please? *rattles chains*

Sound advice. But first, let's start by orchestrating what's for lunch. Who's in? #SpikesAsia #ogilvyspikes


Yes, Back to the Future references are also wins. #geeklove 

@vinyarb Adspace on the underside of your hoverboard


So diabolical. So geeky. Me likey!

@AvtarRamSingh Fun prank: Search
 
 
I am gutted. GUTTED. That there is no picture accompanying this Tweet.
 
@jyesmith Never seen so many man-buns outside of Brooklyn #spikesasia
 

At last, we have an answer!
 
 

Now that's what I'm talking about
 
@HavasCafeSIN “The only thing I'm going to be deep-diving into is a double mojito.” #SpikesAsia #nevertooearly


No OmNomNom?


Also known as the rarest of women (in this funny but admittedly chauvinistic video)

@scubachris
 
 
Wheeeee!
 
@nikkiwicks A very fast walk around #SpikesAsia Festival of Creativity!!!! #spikesasia #campaignasia #hyperlapse… http://instagram.com/p/tT4-byDVBE/

 

I'm guessing this is from Yannick Bollore's talk. Juuuust a guess. 

We rebranded to a unified Havas because we didnt want to spend the 1st 10 mins of every client meeting explaining who we were. #SpikesAsia

 

Okay a legit reference to Game of Thrones = a post here
