So there's nothing really wrong with this new Hot Commute commercial for Rockport which touts the brand's ability to make commuting stylish. It's just, that, well, Rockport just isn't all that hot as a fashion designer and the "hot commute" we see hear, well, isn't hot at all. See, the brand is sort of like a step up from L.L. Bean. The whole thing comes off like a run-of-the-mill Macy's commercial.
But that hasn't stopped the brand from cashing in on all it can. In a deal with Donald Trump's The Apprentice, the brand will be the subject of a challenge in the October 14th episode.
The campaign, which will break in over 30 countries will include television, print, digital, mobile, out of home and POP.
Wearing high heels, a very short miniskirt and a low cut, cleavage-bearing mini-lab coat, a brunette seductress sells Clearwire's Rover Puck, a 4G device that shares internet with up to eight people. The Taxi NYC-created promotion employs the standard hottie-for-hire approach but, despite the distraction, the presentation does convey product information quite well. And for the adventurous who like to experience the full effect of the presentation, allow the presentaion to pause at the predetermined points for some extra sexy fun.
"Ha! 4G is fast!"
Oh and don't forget to watch the creepy emoticon baby video that teases you into the whole thing.
HIV. It's an unseen danger. And that's what Canada's One Life to Live Initiative encourages us to realize. In a new PSA, unseen dangers affect characters who can't see what's right in front of them. It's as if they were being attacked by...wait for it...an invisible disease. Nice concept.
We're going to keep this unbiased and simple. Do you like the new Gap logo? Yes or no.
Hot chicks in short shorts and heels. Works all the time when the goal is to get a bit of attention. Doesn't really matter what the intended goal is. People will look at hot chicks just because they are hot.
In this case, these hot chicks - two French students, one Muslim - had a very specific purpose for donning short shorts, high heels...and mini-burqas. The two were out to protest a new law in France that makes wearing a burqa in public worthy of a fine.
While we're all for attention-getting advertising, blowing up children in a classroom really isn't a tactic we'd whole-heartedly recommend. Firstly, it's a lightning rod for generating instantaneous disdain. And that's exactly what happened after 10:10 Global ran this PSA. Sony, which is a supporter of the campaign, quickly distanced itself from the work and condemned it in a statement, saying the ad was "ill-conceived and tasteless."
Secondly, the ad is just bad and makes no sense. Why blow people up if they decide not to get on board with the whole carbon footprint thing? The strategy is just so far out of left field it's difficult to comprehend the mind set that came up with it.
That said, it is kinda fun to see Gillian Anderson, who narrates the ads, blow up at the end.
