Advertising is now a major part of the Super Bowl, and Britain's very own James Corden has recreated one iconic Super Bowl ad - with a bit of a twist.

During his Late Late Show, James Corden spoofed 1992's Pepsi ad - and Cindy Crawford even joined in the fun, reprising her role from the original spot.

Corden didn't stop there, however: he also parodied Budweiser's famous ‘Whassup?’ Budweiser ad later on in the show.

Watch the hilarious spoof below and tell us if you think it holds up to the original.

What better way to understand your consumers than to work alongside them? Even if they're dogs.

American firm Kurgo has set up the world’s most dog-friendly office, in which employees and their canine companions work together in harmony.

From dog beds to water fountains, each desk is equipped to cater for the dog’s needs; and, of course, the dogs can product test new toys during work hours too.

What better way to stand out in a sea of Super Bowl ads than to have Christopher Walken talking about socks?

The 'Walken Closet' ad by Kia promotes the new Optima, with the famous actor persuading a young man to ditch his beige socks and bring a sense of pizazz to his wardrobe.

The beige socks, of course, are just a representation of those who blend in with society -  it's the colourful socks (like the Kia Optima) that stand out.

Watch the Walken Closet below and tell us what you make of the surreal ad.

One design duo's clever creations let you add a miniature iconic cityscape to your desk or wall.

William Ngo and Alan Silverman's 'Microscape' collection recreates recognisable architectural landscapes as miniature tiled replicas, which are 3D printed and sculpted to a 1:500 scale.

By using aerial scan data, each 6"x6" tile is designed to resemble the most current version of each city, offering little snapshots of character. Together, the sleek white tiles can make up a cityscape as panoramic or as intimate as you like, depending, of course, on your space.

Manhattan is the first cityscape to be recreated in tiles and its creators are now crowdfunding so they can replicate other well-known skylines.
