Jesus. It's like we just stepped back to 1999 when at Leo Burnett Technology Group we pumped out campaign after campaign touting the equity-building properties of a strong brand presence based on the four pillars of an account planner's wet dream: Vision, Mission, Essence and Position. Architecting the brand as it were.
It all usually netted in some self-important puffery akin to this new tagline from Esurance, "People when you want them. Technology when you don't." Sounds like a Peoplesoft tagline. Anyone remember them?
Anyway, the new campiagn is a play on technology versus people. There's a time for technology and there's a time for people. 1990's tagline aside, the campaign does a pretty good job illustrating that separation.
You can see it all here.
From the Partnership or a Drug-Free America comes this Vigilante-created anti-drug TV campaign for the group's Above the Influence effort. It's aimed at African America teens and we think it hits the mark perfectly. Coming at the issue from three different angles, the campaign addresses typical teen truisms.
From the classic "where was your brain when you did this" to the "I'm the hippest kid in school because I lead and never follow" to "making the right decision begets positive reward," the campaign succeeds by finding multiple entry points that allow the campaign to appeal to differing mindsets.
AdFreak has the the spots here, here and here.
Crispin Porter + Bogusky is out with a great new PSA which features Alex Bogusky breaking down all the crap surrounding global warming and simplifying it into easy to understand terms. In this two minute video, Bogusky likens "global warming" to pollution and the famed crying Indian ad that addressed that problem back in the sixties and seventies.
The simple message was and is "pollution is bad, clean is good." He argues it should be the same with the global warming issue. Carbon in the air is bad. Less of it is good. Focus on the problem. Solve the problem. And leave the scientific and political blather out of the room.
Kudos to Bogusky for delivering a clear and concise message that makes it much easier for people to understand what it is they should do without extended and pointless debate.
Just pick up the box.
This is beyond awesome! A new short film asks if you don't agree with gay lifestyle, why would you then support prop8 and spare them from a life of wedded misery?
This interesting piece of reverse logic, Devin & Glenn, stars Justin Long and Mike White as a gay couple. Directed by Furlined team Will Speck and Josh Gordon, the 3:30 video also features Tom Arnold and Nora Dunn.
Leo Burnett Argentina has created a wondrous new campaign for the Fiat Palio. There are no winding mountain roads. No people punching each other in the arm. No wine glass breakage. No metal ball rolling along the car's contours. No animals getting caught in the sunroof. No terrorist bombers. No hot girls spreading peanut on the hood. No rednecks slingshot from a four wheeler. No bikini clad hotties riding bicycles into the air ET-style. No sudden car crashes. And no Trunk Monkeys.
No. This time we have a seventies-era, 'fro fashioned dude rollerskating down the road while...people ride in his hair. It's the Palio Groove. And you thought there were no new ideas when it came to selling cars. See the ads below.
In this playful, though possibly unsanctioned, commercial for the VW Polo, we see that the car does, in fact, gets the girl. Well, sort of. And it provides a side benefit. It gives what most every guy dreams of getting when he's in a car with a delicious beauty.
In this Borheierh Lowe-created, Hungry man-produced commercial for Unilever, we see what it would be like if our bad breath had the ability to speak. The results aren't pretty. And they can truly ruin a situation that's supposed to be epic and bad breath-free.
The spot does a nice job making its point. We've all been in situations where bad breath unleashes its stench but we usually don't say a word. Here, the reason behind the bad breath is fully explained. Though, sadly, it doesn't get the guy the girl.
Young & Rubicam NY got off easy creating this new commercial hyping the NHL Playoffs. More correctly, the copywriters got off easy? How? There's no copy in this commercial? Why? Because there are no words to explain the feeling of winning The Stanley Cup.
And we have no words to describe how beautifully eloquent this spot is. Oh wait. We just did. Sorry.
The commercial consists of a collage of clips showing those who have won The Stanley Cup searching for words to describe how they feel immediately after winning. Come to think of it, saying nothing is much better than saying anything at all. Barring a few exceptions, when most athletes open their mouths after a win, they spout the same boring platitudes over and over again. Kudos fo Y&R for not going down that lame path.
Damn, we need to stop talking lest we be accused of ruining the moment with meaningless platitudes.
Captain Enchilada Sauce. Chicken Woman. Flex Tortilla. Crunch Boy. Super Reduced Fat Sour Cream. Commander Seasoned Beef. Fantastic Rice. Incredibean. Steak Maximus. Dr. Steve Value. And the Fortress of Flavor.
Yea. It's the Super Delicious Ingredient Force from Taco Bell. Their mission? To rid the world of "minuscule meals of mediocrity" from the "Cruddy Combo Clan." Complete with an El Camino, the SDIF races to the "cruddy cuisine crime scene"
Complete with the Six Million Dollar Man sound effect and super hero PSA, this work from DraftFCB Chicago hits on every last metaphor and meme.
Episode one is here. Future episodes can be found here.
We love it. But those site rollover sound effect get pretty annoying after a while.
Derivative. Obvious. Awesome. We'd yawn except even derivatively obvious commercials featuring sexy women dressed as cowgirls are, well, awesome. Not sure the pair are going to sell any Double Chili Cheeseburgers for Wienerschitzel but that's probably a good thing.
