DOE Road Safety "Classroom" (2014) :60 (Ireland)

DOE Road Safety "Classroom" (2014) :60 (Ireland)

This ad for road safety/anti-speeding is only aired after 9pm, because of its shocking conclusion. It starts out as an innocent fly on the wall in a classroom full of lovely little kids, and then follows them out on a class trip.

If... - the No song / Skadesången - (2014) :45 (Sweden)

If... insurances have been using Stevie Wonder's "Don't you worry about a thing" as a tune in their advertising campaign for quite some time now, a variant was needed to shake things up.

Hyundai - Dad's Sixth Sense - (2014) :30 (USA)

"Remember when only dad could save the day?" Frankly, no. And I think there will be a knee-jerk reaction to that line from a lot of people. But that's the fault of the line, not the concept. The line is trying to be cutesy.

Federal Office of Public Health "The Decision" 3:50 (2013) (Switzerland)

 Federal Office of Public Health "The Decision"  3:50 (2013) (Switzerland)

Either this is in a different language and dubbed, or the sync is way off. But it's true on both vimeo and youtube versions.

Either way, this PSA could have benefited from editing. Don't get me wrong, i like watching the Swiss equivalent of Waiting For Godot with British actors/voice overs out of synch. It's just that-- it's nearly four minutes long to make the point that we should fill out our organ donor cards. But apparently though one doesn't need to really make the decision to donate organs because the surviving families can do so in your uh, absence. Which then begs the question, why would the fat bearded guy care all that much?

Hyundai Veloster -  Death (fooled) - (2011) :30 (The Netherlands)

The board of directors at Hyundai did not approve this ad, as they deemed it "too shocking for our brand", but it's still quite a funny and effective idea showing off the three-door car.

WorkSafe Victoria - Nail gun - (2008) :30 (Australia)

Grey Melbourne scare the hell out of people by showing what can happen if you don't speak up and ask how things should be done if you're unsure. Nailguns are not toys.
