Alex Clare ' Up All Night'

Its a fookin tuuunnnnee! Last year we couldn't get enough of this song by up and coming, London musician Alex Clare. It makes you want to jiggle and wiggle and maybe take drugs and dance till dawn. So we were only too happy to listen to it on repeat whilst Trim's Ross Hallard cut the engimatic and beautifully shot (Steve Annis) video directed by Blake Claridge. Sexy stuff.

Intel 'The Chase'

Every now and then, Trim's Paul Hardcastle vanishes from Bethnal Green like a super hero/CIA agent and returns in a blink of an eye, looking slightly bedazzled and weary.

'Where did you go Paul?'

'Oh just to Prague',

'Why did you go there?'

'Oh just to cut this super cool, slick ass, action packed, extremely clever Intel ad, created by San Francisco agency, Venables Bell & Partners',

'Who directed it?'

'Those ingenious directors Smith & Foulkes at Nexus',

'Cool, can we see it?'

'Sure, but do you want to see my new shoes first?'

Pg Tips 'Ahhh'

Following on from the oh so Christmasy 'Stocking' ad, Garth Jennings and Nick Goldsmith (Hammer and Tongs) continue their story of 'Al and Monkey' with this deeply satisfying spot. Thanks to Dom's seamless editing and rhythmic sound effects, Al and Monkey once again manage to cheer up our gormless January selves.
