Flamingo Casino - Meet the family - (2012) :30 (USA)

Flamingo Casino - Meet the family - (2012) :30 (USA)

Peter Dietrich directs this BBDO SF spec effort for Flamingo Casino.

The idea is you'll get a lot of deals when you get on Flamingo Las Vegas' website.

The spot is...well, basically, a dude meets his girlfriend's family and they're all hot. Including the sexy mermaid goldfish and the dad who is a hot chick with a dad's voice. Because the boyfriend gets more than he bargained for. Or something.

It feels like it's a Bud Light spot transplanted as a Las Vegas resort hotel spot.

What does one say to this?

Beyond the sexy lady factor there's not much to say about it that can redeem it into anything approaching interesting or good.

Kewpie Tarako - Girls in town - (2012) :30 (Japan)

They are wearing dresses with dresses on them, because you can't have too many dresses. Also one is wearing parrot head as hat. This is Kewpie Tarako land, your logic is not welcome here.

The Cosmopolitan - Let Me Go / Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - (2012) :60 (USA)

The Cosmopolitan - Let Me Go / Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - (2012) :60 (USA)

Cheeky guy at the hotel pool bar sneaks in an origami-swan to the mobster (?) bossman's pretty lady, and a spontaneous rendition of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody breaks out. Spoken word version. Until the young man proves he has a surprisingly high voice as he sings "Let me go".

Works very well, as they'll tie it up with the line "just the right amount of wrong", the iconic Queen song actually kinda works as a dialogue, but then we always knew that before we headbanged ourselves silly to it.

First aired February 12, 2012 during The Grammy Awards.

(Sidenote, ever notice that there's only a one letter difference between "lady" and "lay" as I originally typed the blonde woman's description. Revealing typo right there, mate.)

Tesco- "New Friend" -2011- Malaysia

Tesco- "New Friend" -2011- Malaysia

In April, Tesco Malaysia launched its “Quick Q” campaign at all its 39 stores nationwide. The campaign was part of its initiative to aggressively reduce queuing time for customers at its check-out counters.

It involves a green-line in front of the checkouts that makes it easy to see when more checkouts need to be opened.

If a queue extends beyond the “green-line”, the Tesco Quick Q traffic controller will open another checkout and guide its customers to the new checkout counter.

Richard Gorodecky, Amsterdam Worldwide

Richard Gorodecky, Amsterdam Worldwide

We had a chat with Richard Gorodecky, the Executive Art Director of Amsterdam Worldwide at the terrace of the Majestic Hotel in Cannes on the very last day of the Cannes Lions 2010 festival, about craft and engaging todays consumer.

The only advertising that gets noticed is the advertising that people like, or want to engage in.

He stresses that you can not lie in advertising, in fact you can't lie about anything, ever, these days, as you'll be found out in nanoseconds. Brands are built on truth, integrity and great storytelling. We soon veer off talking about smugscreens and as a bonus, Richard does his Cannes Lions impression.

Really great ideas are rare as rocking-horse shit.
