Axe / Lynx - Fireman - (2013) :60 (UK)

Axe / Lynx - Fireman - (2013) :60 (UK)

In "Fireman" a gorgeous specimen of the profession finds a young lady in distress and sets out on a mission to save her in the most heroic way possible, all the while looking sexy , and forgive the pun, smouldering to boot. He races up a stair that burns down at once, he crashes through doors, he ends with an epic getaway from an exploding building, sheltering her in his strong arms, and as their eyes meet once they are in safety...

She spots something better coming down the street! Yep. Ladies may be a sucker for uniforms, but there's levels to the uniforms. Some uniforms are better than others. Let this be a lesson to you all. The best uniform in the birthday suit, by the way, in case anyone was wondering.

Happy Creepy Christmas from Swiss Chalet (Canada)

Happy Creepy Christmas from Swiss Chalet (Canada)

This destined to be classic from the Canadian chain is from 2009, I think.

I remember living in Montreal when I first saw it. I was sitting next to a civilian* when I turned to them and asked "Is this a completely creepy disturbing ad or what?

I soon shared the creepiness with other friends. From then on, every time the commercial aired, we made up stories about the daughter and father. Exactly why is she so taken aback when he arrives? Why does she feign ignorance at being taken to her "favorite place?" And why does she act with such a degree of stoic sadness when he ahem-- imitates rudolph.

Feel free to take a break from your egg nog and make up your own stories.

Guitar Center Thank You / Banjo (Ft. Sleepy Man Banjo Boys) (2012) :30

Guitar Center Thank You / Banjo (Ft. Sleepy Man Banjo Boys) (2012) :30

"Sleepy man" is, I guess their father after the intense 24-7/365 practice that superspeeding banjo-playing kid must have gone through to sound like that. Worth it. His fingers are fast!

Halo 4 - Space slow mo / Director's Cut from Blacklist's Polynoid

Halo 4 - Space slow mo / Director's Cut from Blacklist's Polynoid

This slow-mo techno-mo scene is like pop rocks candy for the eyes.


Production company Blacklist and their wunderkind animation team Polynoid collaborated with 343 Industries to create five atmospheric and at times frenetic openers for “Forward Unto Dawn,” the highly anticipated web series promoting the November 6 release of “Halo 4,” the latest installment in one of the most successful franchises in video game history.

Polynoid’s microfilms illustrate the intense relationship between Cortana, an artificial intelligence entity and indispensable aide to Master Chief, the long-time hero of the Halo series. Set aboard a spacecraft, the UNSC Forward Unto Dawn, as it drifts towards imminent doom, Cortana must battle to awaken Master Chief from cryo-stasis before it’s too late.

Axe - Morning after pillow (eng) - (2012) 1:45 (Puerto Rico)

Spinning off on the idea that there's only one thing wrong with AXE, the side effect that women want to (*gasp* god forbid!) cuddle post-coital, DDB Latina Puerto Rico have invented the Morning After Pillow. No, not pill. Pillow.

Internet Explorer 10 - Do you know this guy / Karaoke - (2012)

If you hate Internet Explorer you're a sad cheetos-fingered dude, one razor-blade away from neckbeard. At least that's what I take from this ad, where one man is on a mission.

Aldi - Surfing Santas - The Perfect Aussie Christmas - (2012) :30 (Australia)

Aldi - Surfing Santas - The Perfect Aussie Christmas - (2012) :30 (Australia)

Aaaah, Australia, where the summer surf is on when Santa comes to town. Why not have a commercial filled with only surfing Santa's?

White Christmas escapees and joint BMF Executive Creative Directors Carlos Alija and Laura Sampdero, said; “A lot of Australians think the European Christmas is special, more magical. But trust us. The grass is not greener. It’s actually buried under an inch of ice. Australians have the best Christmas in the world and we wanted to celebrate that by creating a new icon: the Surfing Santa”.

ALDI said: “For too long it's been reindeers this, and White Christmas that. We thought it was about time that we celebrated Christmas Australian-style and we hope that our customers enjoy watching this ad as much as we enjoyed making it”.
