Stihl - Deathbed / Chainsaw - (2009) :30 (New Zealand)

Stihl - Deathbed / Chainsaw - (2009) :30 (New Zealand)

3news.co.nz report that this Chainsaw advert cuts a little too deep for some - people have been complaining that it's "insensitive and offensive."

It is humour of the blackest kind, but a conservative media standards watchdog says the ad, for chainsaw manufacturer Stihl, has crossed a line.

"I was really horrified," says Adrian Cooper of Media Matters in NZ. "I thought, this is not good enough. It's simply not good enough, and it's not the New Zealand I know."

The ad prompted a flurry of complaints to the Broadcasting and Advertising Standards authorities.

"I think that any mature, responsible, thinking adults looking at that would find it offensive," says Mr Cooper.

Nobody said anything about it being very Stella Artois yet. Oops, my bad.

Kia Soul - Hamsters - (2009) :60 (USA)

Kia Soul - Hamsters - (2009) :60 (USA)

LA-based independent creative agency David&Goliath created this spot, directed by Tarsem, edited by Whitehouse editor Ben Stephens, and the vfx done by - who else - Framestore London.

A really simple, but also slightly absurd visual brings home the point - the KIA is not your usual drudgery in the hamsterwheel of commuting. You might still be a hamster, but now you drive a cool car and listen to hip-hop.

“This campaign isn’t about counter-culture or opting to go in a completely different direction. We’re merely suggesting there’s an alternative to the ordinary,” said Colin Jeffery, executive creative director at David&Goliath. “We all have to get from point A to point B – The Soul is just a cooler way to get there.”

David&Goliath used this opportunity to promote various musicians. There’s a key moment in the spot when the Soul’s window goes down to reveal the cool hamsters and the equally cool music track they’re listening to. There will be about five variations of the same spot in rotation, each with a different piece of music. The cinema cuts feature “Bounce” by MSTRKRFT and “Fort Knox” by GoldFish.

Jeffery added, “This car is all about being fresh and different. So we took the opportunity to try something equally innovative with the music. Finishing the commercial with a bunch of different tracks reinforces the idea and importance of being unique.”

Co-op - Seeds / blowin' in the wind Bob Dylan - (2009 ) 2:00 (UK)

Co-op - Seeds / blowin' in the wind Bob Dylan - (2009 ) 2:00 (UK)

This advert, created by McCann Erickson and featuring the Dylan track Blowin' in the Wind made its debut on prime-time Coronation Street telly mid-February. Since then it has appeared on various global websites as well, but, since McCann had no reason to secure global soundtrack it suddenly disappeared from global websites. Youtube versions suddenly had no sound, instead a notice from youtube that "the soundtrack was removed due to rights issues", and McCann's own facebook page has removed the advert all together. What's the deal here, Dylan sells out, but only to a certain geographical region? He didn't seem to have a problem going world wide web when he sold out to Victoria's secret.
