Cheerios "Just Checking," (2013) :30 (USA)

Cheerios "Just Checking," (2013) :30 (USA)

This is the ad depicting a mixed race couple with a perfectly adorable child, that apparently got on some trolls' nerves. So much so that Cheerios had to disable the comments on its youtube page.

By the way, interracial marriage in the states wasn't made "legal" until 1967, which is insane to even write but there you go.

What's interesting to me from an advertising standpoint is just how much this exposes about our own profession. People who don't work in advertising are most likely unaware of it even if they're being influenced by it. If you work in advertising in America, then you've most likely been in seriously retrograde conversations with clients concerning "diversity" when casting a spot.

 Jovenes de Puerto Rico - Boy in Puerto Rico Gets Killed Over a Blocked Shot

"Boy in Puerto Rico Gets Killed Over a Blocked Shot" reads the youtube title of this film, sure to entice rubberneckers to stop by and see what the fuss is about. As the fight begins, the screen encourages you to "like" the clip to save the boys life.

Standard Time just moved offices in Los Angeles, from the beach to the heart latest LA creative neighborhood, District LaBrea, because they wanted to be where the action is. Oh, and because they needed a lot more space. Small agencies with growing pains, you know.

mamapositiva.com - The most difficult job in the world - (2013) 1:30 (USA)

A few unsuspecting people are suckered into a job interview, where they find that the "Manager of Operations" job is tough. THey have to be on call 24 hours a day. There's no vacation. There's no sleep! And it pays nothing.

The job? Mom.

 Diet Coke - The Slender Vender - (2013) 1:44 (France)

The idea is quite nice, turn the vending machine into a slender pole, reminding people that Diet Coke is the skinny choice. The 1 minute and 44 seconds showing it off is a bit much though, the idea is easily understood it from the first shot.

The Vein "Magma" (2013) 1:30 (U.S.A.)

The Vein "Magma" (2013) 1:30 (U.S.A.)

This is a music video for the Vein but it's also an art piece comissioned by Adobe to highlight their new Creative Suite. It's kinda trippy.
