LG Smartbanners target competitor phones in-flight

To get people to switch to the new LG G3, M&C Saatchi Stockholm created some targeted Smartbanner ads on iPhone and HTCs. These mobile banner ads call out their battery performance, attempting to convince them to switch G3, because it has better battery performance.

These ads appeared when people were using in-flight wifi via Norwegian Air long haul flights.

Neat idea. But it's also why I'm adding more and more ad blockers and do not track search engines.

Brazilian ad agency wants to change the subject

No more world cup talk. This ad for VW Golf shows that Brazilians may have lost the cup but they kept their sense of humor..
And hey--at least they didn't use a poor choice of words like VW USA.

Germany World Cup win causes recall of gambling ad: bet you didn't see that coming

Singapore’s National Council on Problem Gambling predicted the outcome of the world cup with the above ad. The campaign has been running for the past month, and Singaporeans have seen TV ads and posters featuring young "Andy" a sad boy whose savings were used by his father to bet on Germany’s crowning as world soccer champions. The campaign is obviously meant to deter gambling, and in particular irresponsible gambling on the world cup - but then Germany ruined the whole thing by actually winning the world cup. As we say in Sweden "otippat!"

Prankvertising has become its own category so we're familiar with how it goes. Still this one from BBDO Belgium is funny. Two unsuspecting households get visitors in the night who take the opportunity not to rip them off, but clean their homes with a very quiet vacuum.
