From flakey dates to teenaged rebellion sisters, to being stranded in the airport, Sky brings everyone together for Christmas.
As long as we can watch tv, that is.
Disclosure: Dabitch asked me to write about this, because this ad is so bad she was in a catatonic state for an hour after viewing it exactly once. For the sake of science and advertising, I bravely put on a hazmat suit and suffered through it.
e-cigarette makers are finding it hard to advertising their products to the Vapers who love them. Mostly because study after study is showing that e-cigarettes are potentially as carcinogenic and harmful as any other tobacco product.
WildWash is a line of environmentally friendly grooming products for dogs. These ads are making the point that their products are as good for dogs as any $30 bottle of shampoo you buy for yourself. The sheep dog one is my favorite. It looks the most integrated.
These ads should be submitted to Archive right now.
Stay True. Leave an Impression. This spot features drummer Ben Mead who doesn't drum for all the usual reasons. Fame. Money. Fortune. Rewards. Awards.
He does it because he is who he is.
So wait...he drums because he's Popeye?
Ben Mead, according to the press release, has "rejected the traditional path of record contracts, instead favouring less well-known venues where his band feel that their music is best appreciated."
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.
Golly, in this Enterprise Rent-A-Car advert the American employee rushes up to Dave to ask if he is as pumped about the deal as he is. The awkward that ensues could only happen between these two types of English.
BBH London, you can do no wrong right now. In another ad expertly directed by Blink, St. John Ambulance calls everyone to learn first aid. The scenario, a woman doing dishes and looking out the window. A father playing ball with his son outside, so familiar, so normal, so perfectly dangerous. When the father momentarily gets caught up in a phone call, the boy climbs a very high tree and that's when disaster strikes. The twist is; you should learn first aid, because you might be the only person around that can help.
Now, for the classiest of the Axe hairstyling tips, the clean cut look. Once properly achieved you can stamp the last page in your passport with casa de her place, they say. This guy is as smooth as his hair.
The spiked up look suits you super hero types, all you need to do is rake and pull-twist your hair, kind of like when you break a mans fingers. See? So easy. Hello, ladies.
This set of quirky demos are pretty cute. Well done BBH.
Axe are marching into the finishing touches of mens grooming with a series of hair styling tools. But what is this stuff, and how do you use it? Stepping away from their by now seriously tedious naked women fall out of the sky creative tactic, these hairstyling ads are a subtle demonstration of how to apply which product to achieve the right results. Do it right and a pretty woman will magically appear. Oh, I see what you did there Axe.
In this one, handsome man on a boat experiencing a heavy storm demonstrates "the messy look". Boat not included.
Hullo. I'm beginning to sense a campaign here with Blinkbox's stunts. It doesn't matter if the witnesses to the stunts don't know the sender, because the earned media will tell all the web-witnesses it's for Blinkbox (hopefully). First there was the Dorset dragon, now there's the Star Trek Teleportation in a mall.
A woman enters a home, picks up some kids crayon, passes the lovers in the living room couch, dances the awkward tea-tango with a man in the communal room before she has a seat in the living room. When the scenery moves in the window and the train announcer says: "Welcome to the east coast" we know we've watched a see-say ad. She feels at home on the train, how nice! The idea nicely directed by Joshua Neale, conceived by Olly Wood and Martin Headon at Beattie McGuinness Bungay is getting a little stale in the strategy.
Expertly directed by Martin Krejci though Stink, British Airways shows us their vision and attention to detail. Paul Yull and Adi Birkinshaw at Bartle Bogle Hegarty created this spot in the "To Fly. To Serve" campaign. The devil is in the details, and British airways notes them all.
Gentlemen. Gentlemen. Gentlemeeeen. Gentlemen. This lady is inspired by the Nissan Micro "go get it" #MicraAttitude, so she got there earlier. So she rehearsed her speech. So she found a weakness in the seats. Oh no she didn't? “Oh Yes She Did”.
Another thing about #MicraAttitude, is just plain being on top of things. That mess of a purse you can't find your keys in? Who needs keys when you can just open the door? Oh no she didn't? “Oh Yes She Did”.
Now if we can only apply this keyless thing to my house.
