KLEENEX WARNING: Meets two girls, one in the United States, and one in New Zealand. Sarah and Paige have nothing in common via geography, but they were both born with only one arm. They've been best friends since they were eight years old. They never met, until Skype brought them together physically, after keeping them together via Skype calls all these years.
Wowzers, has it really been seven years since the Slowskys came out?
Back then they were all about home service being slow. Now it's business service. Funny stuff.
I do have no idea though why the turtles have a human nephew, or why a diner needs fast internet, but you know, that's using logic. And why use logic when there are talking turtles involved?
Chiel produced this spot for the Samsung Curved OLED TV. Using Youtubes 3D viewing option, it is amazingly stunning.
If you aren't aware of that option, or it it wasn't working for you like it was for me the first time, it is a wash of red and blue. That in itself was kind of cool. They could have transitioned each vignette into a perfect 3D version of itself.
Either way, stunning looking stuff.
This spot is for mobile phone provider Mobily Hala's unlimited data package.
Translation: With Hala unlimited data package… internet can’t take it anymore
When German telecommunications giant Deutsche Telekom wanted to tell a story of the increasing interconnectivity of the modern world, they chose an unconventional approach: rather than tell this tale literally, they followed the advice of German agency DDB Tribal and Director Carl Erik Rinsch to convey it as a visual metaphor representing the body, nature and the universe.
Bring out the kleenex! It's an epic Thai ad again, and as you all know they're either total tearjerkers or surreal humor. This one is the former, so brace yourself. The karma-story told here spans 30 years, and many many tears, ending on the tagline "giving is the best communication".
Sebastian Strasser brings forth this epic new film for Vodafone. The project was shot over 6 days in Denmark, Germany, the Czech Republic and Romania. During the shoot the team had to navigating some of Europe's worst flooding in decades, making some of the locations highly treacherous, including the diner, which was left half submerged after a flood had hit the area.
Are all of your devices secure? Have you asked your digital self? Had a proper conversation with your digital self. Or a stern talking to? Digital self better dial down that attitude.
Justin and his digital self are having trouble remembering their password.
This campaign is the first joint global digital campaign from McAfee and Intel and is centered on the fact that consumers all have digital selves, which often act naively online and put their security at risk—an insight derived from research in which consumers said while they cared about their online security, they did little to protect it. Through this campaign, McAfee hopes to educate consumer about vulnerabilities they can prevent through taking proper security precautions.
Megan's digital self loves to watch cute kittengifs and share them with her eight hundred friends. She's less good at keeping track of important digital documents. Only important digital kitten-documents.
The app-market has matured to become so overcrowded, it's wise to get a really nice ad out to show people what you're all about. Wishcloud knocks it out of the park with this surreal Suess-like rythmic rhyme about Jane.
Jane, you see, is not like the other beige, grey and bland people at the office, she has style and shoes to die for. .....And maybe even a golden vajayjay: "There's something not right about Jane. Could it be her golden vajayjay?"
Congrats to Ari Merkin and ad agency Ten for getting the word "vajayjay" into an ad. There should be some sort of award for that.
To showcase Christopher Raeburn’s SS14 Menswear collection, director and concept creator Ryan Hopkinson married technology to style. The end result is a visually arresting video of Christopher's collection shot in bullet time using the Sony Xperia Z smartphone.
A seriously extreme amount of effort went in to make this film look this cool.
VFX company Stardust created a global campaign for China's messaging app WeChat. In this spot, Argentine football phenom Lionel Messi uses WeChat to calm his baby down with some footie juggling tricks from afar.
Guess it was in Messi's contract to wear adidas, as that trefoil is prominent throughout.
The spot is airing in fifteen countries across Asia and Latin America as well as South Africa and Turkey.
Barton F. Graf 9000 write down the brief as a script, by making the Dish guys run and hide in various places as they keep hearing the news on their free Dish iPad that they picked dangerous spots to hide. The result is a lot funnier than just reading the brief.
This IBM SmarterCommerce commercial is actually a Summit MOFILM winner, so congrats to that. We have two minutes with a twee girl scout who starts out as a fail, and then discovers the right approach to pushing sugar-laden cookies on the world. You'll find her outside of gyms, on jogging routes, and her favorite spot the speed dating center selling classic comfort cookies to you. Clever little lass.
Oh yeah, and IBM has something to do with this. [insert "chips not cookies" joke here].
