Volkswagen Beetle- the "Slowmercial" - Introduction to Cab - (2013)

Volkswagen Beetle- the "Slowmercial" - Introduction to Cab - (2013)

1 out of 3 Belgians watch their favorite shows in delayed mode, meaning they fast forward through the commercials.

"DDB and Volkswagen now come up with a creative solution that rethinks the standard tv ad format. To promote the new Volkswagen Beetle Cabrio we developed the so-called 'slowmercial'."

That's really cute guys, so cutting it's like whoah, it's like nobody ever thought of that before. Except Markenfilm in Germany. in the 90s. And those rumored TiVo fast forward ads in the early 2000s in the US. Welcome to the future. Nice ads.

I mock because I love guys, it's really kinda clever.

 

TNT Dramatic Surprise (2013) 1:50 (Belgium)

 

Toyota: protect what's behind you

Toyota wanted to get the word out that ,any car accidents happen when the driver is backing up. So, along with Happiness Brussels they got a bit of art on for Toyota.

The carmaker commissioned a series of 3d street paintings from artist Ernest Zacharevic , who painted a series of murals in a Brussels parking lot. The murals depict innocent kids playing and having fun, right in places where drivers are most apt to back up.

Along with all of them is a line: "Protect what's behind you. Drive with a rear-view camera."

Emotional without being sappy. Straight and to the point. And the drawings are quite beautiful, too.

Nice one, guys.

One Million Trees - Lost Without Them - (2012) :60 (Belgium)

Nice Shoes Colorist Ron Sudul recently finished a pair of stirring international spots for the nonprofit group One Million Trees. The studio teamed up with The Academy of Film & the Arts Directors Armondo Acosta, Frederik Cassiers and Martijn De Schrijver, expertly modifying their raw black-and-white footage with wisps of color.

The projects are journeys through the forests of Flanders, Brakelbos and Overpelt in Belgium. A mix of aerial views and shots from the dense forest floors, the spots explore the human relationship with trees. Friends in Trees features a man and young girl ascending into the soaring branches. Lost without Them follows a fleet of helicopters in pursuit of one man wandering through the woods.

Carlsberg - Probably the best ad in the world - (2011)

Duval Guillaume are showing off their bottle-opening skills and their trademarked modesty with their best ad in the world for Carlsberg, who knew that a few simple folds could open a beer bottle? I knew, I've seen people open beer-bottles with lighters, pens, edges of the table, rings and all sorts, including folded paper which is almost as impressive as when a drunk french man uncorks a wine-bottle with his shoe. I can't do any of those clever opening tricks, but I can open beer bottles with my teeth. Calcium. It's key.
