Apple "Frankie's Holiday" (2016) 2:00 (USA)

Apple "Frankie's Holiday" (2016) 2:00 (USA)

Slept on this for a minute because I wanted to enjoy Thanksgiving but this strange ad features Frankenstein getting into the Christmas spirit for the townspeople with his iPhone and some caroling. Why? Damned if I know.

 

THE GODS THEMSELVES - Tech Boys (2016) 4:08 (USA)

THE GODS THEMSELVES - Tech Boys (2016) 4:08 (USA)

The God's Themselves have a new single I can't stop listening to called "Tech Boys." It's a slice of 80's dance on a white soundstage.

 

DirecTV "At our grandparents house" (2016) :50 (Ecuador)

DirecTV "At our grandparents house" (2016) :50 (Ecuador)

The elderly, man. They're so lonely. They can't catch a break in the loneliness department. Everyone else is out there living and they're forgotten. Until now. A smart idea from Grey Ecuador to inspire a change in behavior. There's a big classic soccer match going on.

 

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

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)

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)

 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)

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)

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.
