When you receive a tweet that reads, "best unintentionally hilarious product video ever...," you're sort of obliged to look. So we did. And yea, this one is pretty hilarious. Carrots. Chess pieces. Gummi Bears. Hot Dogs. Grapes. Golf balls. Dog food. And a toilet.
Huh? Just watch.
After watching this McCann Erickson Dublin-created commercial for Heineken which chronicles the life of a Heineken bottle as it falls from its perch atop a bookshelf, we have a new appreciation for the lowly bottle of beer. And, as this commercial would have us believe, it's not just beer. No, no, no. Notat all. It's blood, sweat, tears, love, determination and all sort of other legendary stuff the Mythical Gods of Beer would have us believe
While not entirely reminiscent of the Caddyshack candy bar in the pool scene, this JWT London-created commercial for Nestle does remind one of the pool poop queasiness that scene so brilliantly captured.
OK, enough bathroom humor. It would be pretty cool to skate through a pool filled with chocolate colored ballons
Hoping to distract people, if only for a few moments, from the rampant financial ruin surrounding us, Credit Unions of Washington is out with a few "Financial Chaos-Free Moments" providing peaceful interludes and a respite from the crumbling financial world wreaking havoc in our world.
And yes, figure prominently into the equation as prime distractors fom reality in a serious of :15 television commercials. Created by Seattle-based Big Bang Electrical, the campiagn also includes newspaper and radio.
And you know what? Who care how creative or uncreative these are. We'll take anything. ANYTHING to lull us into a false sense of hope.
See the spots here, here and here.
Tonight during American Idol, Ford will debut three JWT-created commercials for the new 20120 Fusion. Two of the three ads focus heavily on fuel economy while the third touts the Fusion's voice-activated SYNC which allows the driver to, among other things, tell the sound system what music to play, who to call and get directions from the navigation system
Among the two fuel efficiency-focused spots, one touts the hybrid version of the Fusion which is said to be "the most fuel efficient mid-sized sedan in America" at 41 MPG city. The other makes the same claim for the non-hybrid version of the car.
In "Love Distance," two lovers nearly two billion millimeters apart race toward each other as a meter ticks off the amount of space left between them. Their ecstatic embrace results in emotional spikes between 0 mm and 316 mm.
The tagline ties it all together: "And yet, love needs distance." Sagami's thinnest condom does the job with the fewest millimeters of all: 0.02.

If this new Visa Go ad is any authority, America's favourite check card wants you to take your kids to the nearest (kaleidoscopic, CGI'ed-out!) aquarium. On a Tuesday.
OK work, nicely cinched with wonderstruck expression of child and soothing voice of Morgan Freeman. By TBWA\Chiat\Day for -- you guessed it -- Visa Go. (AKQA joint-orchestrated the campaign at large.)

Trojan illustrates how nobody wants to get an STD with help from a girl who gets one for her 21st birthday -- and is pretty stoked about it, actually.
"No one wants to get an STD, but 1/3 of sexually active people do by age 25," a sobering textover says, at which point Birthday Girl screeches, "Wait 'til I show my mom!" and we shudder in quiet agony.

This is kinda interesting. For client CONSOL Energy, Brunner/Pittsburgh put together a microsite with a "coal flag." Designed like the Stars and Stripes, each seam represents a mining topic and features interviews of between :90 and 3:00 with people working within the industry.
Target market: residents of coal-producing and electricity-consuming communities, and their leaders. The site was done in Flash 8 and HTML to maximize its SEO juice; not sure how else it's being promoted.
It's an unfortunate stereotype that eco crusaders look more like the wildlife they seek to protect than they do their fellow man. And it's apparently not unique to the States: riffing off this cruel assumption, Air/Brussels developed the ad at left for cosmetic firm Biocorner.
The side of the ad marked "Avant" (Before) depicts your standard tree-hugger: stringy hair, sordid complexion and whale-watcher clothes. On the side marked "Apres" (After), the same woman is transformed into a black-clad vixen with Pantene locks and Scarlett O'Hara eyebrows.
Tagline: "No Need to be Ugly to Save the Planet." I don't know -- she's gonna be pretty cold on that whale boat unless she puts her layers back on.
