We just praised Old Spice’s latest watermelon basketball ad. As good as it is, I think this latest Kmart ad might have it beat — with some simple and brazen word play, no less. This would have been regarded as an ALL-TIME GREAT Super Bowl commercial had it been released the night of the big [...]
I meant to post this new Old Spice ad a few days ago, but figured it was still worth doing so because even after watching it 90 billion times, this ad still cracks me up. Initially, I thought the ad worked well because it’s a bit weird, has a catchy jingle, and is funny. Yes, [...]
This is an old Nike spot, but I’m just seeing it for the first time. After all, when Jim Coudal says this is “easily the best Nike soccer spot ever, and that’s saying something”, then my interest is piqued. Yes, this is a pretty brilliant Nike soccer spot.
I love everything about Guinness’s new St. Patrick’s Day advertisement, which has a border collie sheep dog rounding up a bunch of dumb, beer-drinking gentlemen in a field. [via AdWeek]
The Guardian newspaper and Bartle Bogle Hegarty’s first brand campaign uses the story of the Three Little Pigs to inform the public on how the media organization has evolved its news coverage for the modern times. It’s all part of the company’s open journalism initiative. More than just being a well-made and darkly fascinating commercial, [...]
The extended commercial for The Avengers contains plenty of awesome new footage, like Shields helipad, the Hulk, etc. Really, I’m getting the sense that 2012′s summer movie season could be as incredible as 2011′s was completely forgettable.
The Super Bowl commercials keep on coming! Pretty soon they’ll be no reason to watch the game other than being a Patriots or Giants fan. This time around, we get a tasty new look at The Hunger Games, which I wasn’t too excited about initially, but the more I think about it, the more I [...]
Here’s Volkswagen’s Super Bowl spot, which was teased last week. I quite like the Mos Eisley twist at the end. I also like the new tradition of companies releasing their Super Bowl ads before the Super Bowl onto YouTube. Bonus: Here’s Downey’s Super Bowl spot starring Amy Sederis and Mean Joe Green, spoofing Green’s famous [...]
Here’s the full version of that Ferris Bueller commercial which was teased last week. The ad features Matthew Broderick reprising his classic role of Ferris Bueller, it was directed by Todd Philips, and it’s for the launch of the 2012 Honda CR-V. The commercial kinda of sucks. What’s interesting to consider in this space is how poorly of a character Ferris Bueller [...]
