We make no claims as the the recency of this little clip promoting Village Voice classifieds with a bunch of hipster wannabes but we were a little freaked out by the masked, dancing fat guy at the end. The "Click Right. Think Left" tagline is great though.
We simply must agree with our friends over at Copyranter who loved T-Mobile's speed-talking, whatever-spewing, stereotype-enforcing, bubble-brained, chic-squeaking cheerleader in a commercial promoting the company's ability to keep up with teens who like to ponder the topics like boycotting tuna, matching swimsuits and getting one's head stuck in a sunroof. We've watched it five times and still can't stop laughing. Make sure you catch that last "whatever."
The agency behind this masterpiece are Publicis, the production company was Epoch Films and the director was Stacy Wall.
Advertising Goodness calls our attention to a couple self-promotional ads that McCann-Eriskson created. With imagery that features well known icons, the ads, very simply, make a powerful and convincing statement. We like.
Our Canadian correspondent, Sanj, sends us this ad for ezdivorce, a company that specializes in, as the name indicates, divorces. The ad, which appeared in the Toronto Metro paper, carries the ingenious headline, "Holidays Are Over - You Can Stop Pretending Now," giving nod to the perpetual postponement of all thing painful during the Holiday season. Simple. Witty. We like.
