Awkward. You've experienced the moments. When a friend or an almost friend or a business associate made a sports-related quip and, well, got it entirely wrong. In this DDB Vancouver-created commercial for KidSport BC, a community based sports-funding program that provides grants for children to participate in a sport, the importance of sports in a child's life are highlighted. Sadly, the poor "kid" in this spot definitely missed out on some of the basics.
The campaign includes two commercials and eight radio spots which will begin airing July 27.
Last week, PubMatic released a study which found industry ad pricing levels have increased 35 percent since the beginning of 2009. Pricing for ad inventory sold through indirect channels such as ad networks and ad exchanges has increased every month, gaining 47 percent since the end of January.
The study reports that while 2008 experienced record lows in online ad pricing, 2009 has shown consecutive ad price growth for every month this year ranging from 3 percent to 15 percent per month. You mean Santa will be bringing presents this year? Please, say it's true.
