Just yesterday I was looking through a 'Zoo' Magazine, (a lads magazine) and as I was looking through the magazine for hot women I noticed the album cover on the side of the page, and well i went crazy! I showed my mates, (who weren't that impressed) and turned the page to see a album review for RAFRAG with the new picture of the Dexter and the gang. My heart was pumping twice as fast as it should normally as it was the first actual article I've seen of the offspring in australia since the new album came out. I was even more suprised to see it given a score of 5 stars (out of 5) and laughed as they ripped off an old interview with Dexter and Noodles saying it they interviewed them. However I'm very happy they're actually getting some advertising out there. Has anyone else seen any advertising for the album in places they weren't or were expecting?

They've stuck some billboard posters up on the walls outside my school. There was also a page-sized ad in the Drum Media last week.

There's been a few on Facebook off to the side of the page. Just says something like.."Offspring's new album Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace is out now!"
Somethin like that, but it's still an ad!

last night i saw a commercial on TV. it had the Hammerhead video in the background, and i remember looking up when i heard HH and seeing rotating pigz lol. i also noticed that theres rotating elephants in between the pigs. but it was from walmart, so that makes the commercial less cool

Just saw an ad on facebook next to my profile a second ago. Wasn't very eye-catching though.

Recent studies have shown that its good for your health to look at hot women. However its the Offspring that get me excited :D

Sometimes at the bottom of the Offspring page of my forums it has a banner ad for it. At first (as in, back in May) it was for the Hammerhead download, and now it's for RAFRAG.
Yay, my forum has Offspring ads. :D

I have no idea where to post this and I don't want to make another thread.

I was listening to the radio tonight when I changed channels to a station with an acoustic-esque song with vocals that sounded identical to Dexter.

I had no idea what it was until the lyrics said 'Kristy, are you doing okay?' or what ever they are. I hadn't realized they released a new single so fast. Little did I know 97.9 was playing the entire Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace album, or at least I think so, the next song was 'Nothingtown'. Again, I know this because of matching lyrics to song titles I've seen in the past. I stuck around in my car just long enough to confirm my belief when the next song that came on was once again Dexter's distinct vocals.

tl;dr 97.9 Played all of Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, though it was at 3am.

Also, stop using those acronyms, it isn't that hard to type the title and they look stupid as hell.

Nothing here, but according to my brother, the radio recently played a snippet of Hammerhead and the DJ was like "Yeah, I'm going to play that one later this week."

You're kidding? :o
It's so pitty that Offspring isn't too "populare" in Norway, still we have some fans. = D

I ordered a few shirts on a Dutch website. The package arrived today and it contained a flyer (postcard format) to promote RAFRAG and Hammerhead.

I didn't order any Offspring stuff though.

Wow... lol. Can't say I've ever seen anything like that before. Is that at a bus stop or something? I've seen posters at bus stops in the shelter things, but never on a street bench before. Awesome, love it!

Not really an ad but it sort of fits here and I don't want to start a new thread for this.

I randomly open the TV and they were playing the hit that music video on some music channel. It owned. :cool:

That bench is pleading to be robbed.

It would fit nice in my garden.

Wait till its dark, then saw it off, take it home, and hang it on your wall. I SO WOULD. Thats epic.

Stylie

Yeah, would be cool to have it, but I rather leave it as it is. 'Caus it's advertisment for The Offspring, and if you steal that one, you actually steal from The Offspring themselves - you wouldn't do that.
