Favorite Commercials for fairuse
Just in time for New York fashion Week, Peta takes us once again into heavy-handed metaphor land in their usual sloppy way.
But the interesting rub this time is that this was done by Ogilvy & Mather China. They're not allowed to protest in China, but seeing as how the girl in the cage is Chinese, it's pretty freaking obvious who they are targeting.
My favorite quote from from the press release I received was "For obvious political reasons, protest is pointless in China."
I know, right? We never talk about Tiananmen Square. And Falun Gong? Do they serve that with pork or chicken?
Kitteh Kitteh raps: "Your night just got better, I'm a four legged love-letter" and I purred at the over-the-top R&B/rap-smoothness these cats display. Slow-mo rolling on the floor? Yes. Licking water from a fishbowl? Yes. Soft-lit profiles? Yes. This is all kinds of good for a cat lover. Get some Litter Genie right now, just to sponsor the non-bland ad in the usually reserved for shit ads product category. (Pun not intended, but I will leave it there).
Walter and the Lap Cats' music is brought to you by Litter Genie® and JWT New York. Nicely done, gais.
Your night just got better.
I'm a four-legged love letter.
Go on, look at me.
The first glance is free.
I love a cat that dances.
(Go kitty, go kitty)
You love my big finances.
"18 again" is a ' a vaginal rejuvenation & tightening gel' and I don't even want to know what that means but I'm guessing it's "rip-off in a jar". The advert selling this cream hints at what it accomplishes by having a presumed mother and housewife invite her (presumed) hubby to sing and dance like a young Bollywood star, while small children and the older generation stare, mouths agape. They've understood what the cream did for her - making her "feel 18 again" - and so the "button" on this ad is how the older woman orders it online for herself.
Dear, oh dear. "Vaginal" tightening gel. You mean this goes inside? This is worse than Lysol as a contraceptive.
It's been six months since five major US financial institutions, VISA, MasterCard, PayPal, Western Union and the Bank of America, have stunted Wikileaks by freezing accounts and prevented donations from being made via them. This ad shows Julian Assange in house-arrest at Vaughan Smith's country manor, while spoofing the long-running "Mastercard Priceless" campaign. It's up on youtube today, but with their trackrecord for yanking parody ads that touch on trademarks (see Greenpeace VW) it might be down by tomorrow.
Censorship, like everything else in the West, has been privatized.
Collaborating with History Channel for the second time this year, METAphrenie has delivered a new promo and show open for the high profile movie event “Gettysburg.” The two-hour special, Executive Produced by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, presents the engagement in a new light imbuing the stories of eight soldiers with the terrifying experience of war.
Ever wonder what a superhero would look like if their powers allowed them to transform into a bottle of iced tea? Neither did we, but Absolute makes us wish we had in their latest spot for the launch of 100% Natural Lipton Iced Tea, a product of the Pepsi Lipton Partneship. In collaboration with DDB London and recurring partner Sonny London Productions Director Emil Moller (e-on, TFL, Bee TV), Absolute transforms a street-walking city girl into a living embodiment of Lipton tea's three ingredients: water, tea leaves and sunshine.
Forget selling banks with the "for all your roast beef needs" tired old phrases, in Taiwan they'll tug at your heartstrings hard to convince you that their bank is the right choice. Because what is banking? It's saving money for a rainy day, borrowing money for something you need, and in this case it's for that last epic motorcycle road trip across Taiwan, just so you can hang with the gang at beach like you did so long ago.
Edit: I posted this under "Thailand" at first, when the agency credits reads "Taiwan". Man, I need coffee. My bad!
