Riffing off its recent "I'm Just Here For The Bud Light" campaign, Anheuser-Busch has launched Here 4BL, a website that encourages people send in pictures of themselves holding a "I'm Just Here For The Bud Light" sign. Pictures will be judged and the winner will be awarded a trip for four to the "Ultimate Bud Light Party in Hawaii. Fourteen weekly winners will receive free beer for a year. Of course, there's already women in bikinis and Hooters waitresses. Anyway, check it out here.
FishNChimps features a recent television spot for KitKat that riffs on a controversial 1966 World Cup Final goal. The KitKat spot uses the moment but alters the ending a bit in a humorous fashion to get its message in. You can compare the original moment with the KitKat spot if you're really into that sort of thing.
Marketallica points to Flickr user Russel Davies who's placed a photo of some books on his Flickr page and added notes about the books with a link to Amazon if anyone wants to buy them. Of course, he uses his Amazon affiliate ID number so he makes money if anyone does choose to purchase. Not that anyone wants Flickr overly commercialize but since marketers have taken over MySpace, it makes perfect sense for them to upload images of all their products to Flickr, tag them with notes and add a link to a more detailed product page of to a place where a person could quickly buy the product. Watch it happen. Because you know it will.
Bringing back the goofiness of yesteryear's advertising, this Canadian campaign for Chevrolet offers the perfect mash up of Ward Cleaver morals and today's penchant for doing whatever the hell we want. Using old school TV style, A Past School Special covers bad influence, peer pressure and principles while promoting Chevrolet's Cobalt, HHR and Aveo. There's a companion website to the campaign and, of course, MySpace profiles.
When you first watch this latest Apple commercial spoof which features a monkey and a guy in a yellow jump suit, "Huh?" will likely be the first word that comes to mind. But, if you check out what's being promoted in the spoof, clefPalate, you'll be treated to a very professionally produced video podcast about cooking...and monkeys...and men in yellow jump suits. Be sure to catch the first episode which riffs very nicely off the Stanly Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Another brilliant ad for Axe uses dueling pizza makers, horny women and Broadway-style dancing to drive home its message.
In advertising, most always, a well chosen visual always beats well written copy. This is evidenced in a print campaign for Baygon bug spray in which the results of reacting to a bug bite are displayed. The campiagn was created by FCB Wlka, Delhi.
Ad babe Advergirl, who we are beginning to like more and more, found this ad for car maker SEAT Altea in which a pregnant woman is pictured sitting on the hood of the car. Advergirl mentions this trend towards making pregnant women look hot can only lead to the next advertising oddity, making "diaper-bag-toting, exhausted, mother-of-a-two-year old hot, too." That might be interesting to see and, of course, would be the next logical step in America's progression toward politically correct nirvana.
Climbing on the YouTube juggernaut, Panasonic has teamed with video service in a promotion that will offer a 50 inch plasma TV and digital camera to the person who, at the end of a four week period is deemed to have created the funniest short film or home video. Apparently, those that review the entries over the four week period are also eligible to win a digital camera. The promotion was created by Lime PR and Reindeer.
It's unfortunate this industry has to waste its time creating campaigns for insensitive idiots but, apparently, there are enough people in Portugal who are prejudice against the country's immigrants that this commercial for Amnesty International was necessary. It was vreated by McCann Erikson Portugal.
