This is a TV commercial from Japanese milk company Rakunoh Mother’s. What's the deal with this Uddered Flying Object (UFO)? For the cattle mutilation-inspired backstory, see the equally unusual TV spot below.
The Imedia Creative Bureau in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan designed this concept cow-swiping-UFO milk bottle.
We are trying to tend to come up with original and smart packaging or product designs. So this time the task was to create a milk package unlike anything on market shelves.
We wanted to find very abstract or distant association with milk and cow.
Cow being abducted by UFO is pretty common used image in pop-culture. But it was very unexpected idea for milk bottle. So we begun working on it. At first we sketched the shape of the bottle and its proportions. Then Kanat (our 3D designer) started to model the bottle while the rest of the team were looking for appropriate naming. We had some cool names like Cowsmilk (which reads like “cosmic”), Mimimilk and among them was Molocow.
As you know “moloko” is a Russian word but thanks to outstanding director Stanley Kubrick everybody knows this word, we suppose. Also we wanted to pay tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s greatest movie “Orange clockwork”, and “Space Odyssey – 2001″ which is sci-fi classic. We were happy with the product name.
Kanat worked on this project for a month roughly. He’s done the visuals very well that some could take them as real ones.
Virginia authorities handcuffed a middle school student and charged him with larceny for "stealing" a milk carton from the school cafeteria earlier this year. The child has also been suspended from school. Read the rest
Lemmy Kilmister of Mötorhead may have been known for his hard drinking, but he'll be forever remembered in an ad for a different beverage. Milk.
Just weeks before he died at age 70 from cancer, he shot a TV ad for the Finnish dairy products company Valio. After the rocker's death, Valio ran some of Lemmy's unscripted, improvised material -- which wasn't even part of the ad! -- as a tribute to the heavy metal icon. Read the rest
These guys fucking love milk.
