Betser - Balls & Brains -Locker Room  :45 (2016) (Sweden)

In part 1 of this campaign for online betting company Betser, we're introduced to Einstein and Napoleon--who represent brains and balls. Why? Because Betser is introducing Balls and Brains, which rewards both skill and dumb luck/courage. It's very silly.

Vodafone: "Grandfather" (2016) 2:00 (Portugal)

Here's a Christmas advert with a twist. Grandfather leaves the old folks home to spend Christmas with his family. He's thrilled to see them all, pauses for a moment at the photo of his dearly departed wife, and tries hard to get into the spirit of things.

 adidas Originals TUBULAR Blackout (2016) :15 (USA)

Damian Lillard scribbles stuff in this spot while a headline ominously asks "Who runs the runway?" That's quite the dose of paranoia for this short spot.

adidas Originals "TUBULAR Blackballed" (2016) :15 (USA)

Who runs the runway? Portland Trailblazer Damian Lillard, perhaps? I have no idea. This spot feels like it's trying way too hard. Although I'm not sure what it's trying to do, to be honest.

SNCF - Rapprochons nous (2016) 1:00 (France)

Rapprochons nous = Bring us closer, and that's exactly what happens over the course of one Monday to Friday on the SNCF. Boy sees girl from afar. Boy gets flirty. Boy tries to write his number in steam for her. Boy gets desperate.

E ON "Solar Christmas Experience" (2016) 1:30 (Sweden)

A Swedish couple gets their solar Christmas light extravaganza on. Lars and Ingegärd Andersson show us how its done in their town of Sölvesborg. They are solar farmers, by the way, and this was done in one take, and set to a remix of "For a Better Day" by Avicii.

PETA ambushes hired actors people on the street in a focus group to try a new milk, only to pull the rug that it is actually dog's milk! Blargh!

 

Bang & Olufsen "Humblebragging" (2016) 1:38 (Denmark)

Bang & Olufsen "Humblebragging" (2016) 1:38 (Denmark)

In this spot, a very excited couple humblebrag their experience buying a Bang and Olufsen TV. And I mean the entire experience, from carrying it up the stairs to play acting that they have an exciting life instead of being a couple with kids who never leave their place.
