Thanks for getting these up caff, great stuff.
I was happy to see the drastic change in Stein Marts campaigns, the piano man is funny and nothing like their other mall-competitors campaigns I believe it'll pay off for them. Their old work sucked.
Also, the Farmer's insurance ads are great, especially the surreal one with the bunny coming out of the asphalt. Adfreak named them in their best ads of 2007 as well, but said something like "the ad can't be found on the web", which I take it really means "does not exist on youtube".
