CIIC "What do you actually do for a living?" (2014) 2:00 (Australia)

The Creative Industries Innovation Centre (CIIC) has a great video explaining to the squares what creative types actually do. Hardly the black turtleneck, beareded cool-glasses wearing type. In fact creative types are great fits in other industries.

NRMA Insurance- "Crashed Car Showroom" (2014) :50 (Australia)

In the month leading up to prom, the local cops would put a car that had been totaled in a drunk driving accident in front of my high school. It was done as a way to deter drunk driving and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) were behind it.

Macquarie Dictionary - Phubbing A Word is Born - (2013) 2:30 (Australia)

Macquarie Dictionary - Phubbing A Word is Born - (2013) 2:30 (Australia)

McCann Melbourne are at it again, this time they're inventing words instead of dumb ways to die, and seeding the word around the world. At the end of the case study, the success of this word is a reminder that dictionaries, in particular the Macquarie Dictionary , are really really useful things.

The invented word: Phubbing. Ignoring the person in front of you in favor of your smart phone.

Bertolli - Cooking with hot sexy Italian chef, Alfredo Caldo-Freddo - (2013) 3:20 (Australia)

Bertolli - Cooking with hot sexy Italian chef, Alfredo Caldo-Freddo - (2013) 3:20 (Australia)

Welcome to the most tired (sexist) troupe of advertising yet, it's the shirtless guy cooking in all his unhygenic glory.
This time it's Bertolli who introduces the "hot sexy Italian chef, Alfredo Caldo-Freddo". Alfredo teaches us the difference between Hot & Cold uses of olive oil, and which oil goes where - the light one is "to keep it moist on the inside" while strutting his stuff in nothing but an apron.

What happened to fat doofus dad, did we finally kill him off and replaced him with beefcake man in ads? Nope, doofus has a starring role as comedic relief as usual. Nothing new under the advertising sun.

Boost Mobile - Stay Living / Zombie apocalypse - (2013) (Australia)

Boost Mobile - Stay Living / Zombie apocalypse - (2013) (Australia)

It's like an epic Zombie apocalypse movie trailer. Hey, have you noticed that zombies have taken over the role mimes used to have in Adland? All hail Romero, I wonder how perplexed he feels about zombies used to sell stuff. Speaking of selling, after you've been thoroughly entertained by the zombie-splatter in this ad you might wonder what it is selling. Cell-phone service. You see, when the zombie apocalypse happens, Boost Mobile is still going to be around. They're manning the antennas & HQ with robots I presume.

Or as they say:
Don't get trapped. Don't be locked in. Stay Living

Well OK then. Still, everyone who wishes this was areal teaser for a future TV series raise their cellphones. Yep yep.
