While research has certainly proved people form attachments to brands at an early age, hence the shameless marketing of crap to children, we're not quite sure those brand associations begin as early as Virgin Atlantic would like to have us believe. Of course that's not really the point of this ad but it's certainly analogous.
Here's a beer ad campaign for Brazilian beer Skol that gets to the truth of things. As Creative Criminal points out, the campaign creates a world in which things would be very different if Skol drinkers made products. See all the ads here.
It's really sad that America's supposed favorite pass time has to advertise to get Americans to do what is supposed to be their favorite thing, but that's what it's come down to and this campaign for the Seattle Mariners is the latest entrant. The campaign consists of six spots (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) which run the gamut from quirky to funny. They're filled with both general baseball themes as well as local Mariners themes such as the weird ritual Mariners right fielder Ichiro Suzuki goes through at the plate before each pitch. Another spot speaks to the semi-recent "talk to the glove" behavior players practice when in conference. All in all, the campaign does a nice job tying together baseball-isms and adding some amusement to the sport.
Last night Major League Baseball and the Partnership for a Drug Free America held a press conference to announce a new public service campaign against steroid use. The campaign will consist of television, radio and print work created by BBDO New York. The first spot broke last night and focuses on the harmful effects of steroid use including shrinking manhood as illustrated through deflating balls. Witty.
To promote its new GMC Yukon SUV, GM has launched an interesting campaign that uses graffiti-like imagery that's really engineering equations along with a URL pointing people to a microsite called Beyond the Drawing Board. On the site, there is endless information about the vehicle presented within the grafitti-like motif (OMG, did we just use the word "motif?" Please, forgive us. That's like saying "synergy" after the 80's ended.) Upon hearing the audio intro to the site, "What happens when passion becomes obsession? When the need to innovate is unquenchable? When the desire to create is all consuming?", we resisted the urge to respond, "Gee, um, create a piece of Flashtastic orgasmimage that makes our tired old laptop's fan spin up to top velocity in an attempt to cool the burden placed on the processor by all this Flashtastic exuberance."
This is beyond weird. Beyond different. Beyond odd. In fact, it's so beyond weird, different and odd that it's actually great. It's a mini campaign for Winterfresh gum.
Here's a couple (1, 2) of new commercial from recently re-branded ISP Web.com. The two spots take a quirky look at how an ISP can help grow an individuals business whether you're a homeless guy unsatisfied with terrestrial handouts or a psycho girl friend who can't seem to get enough satisfaction terrorizing her own boyfriend.
Fallon London has created a microsite for its U.K. insurance client More Th>n (that's not a typo, you wing nuts, it's how they "spell" the company name) that focuses on the normal aspects of life in contrast to the usual sensations of unease when having to call upon an insurance company following some bump in the road of life. The site highlights the campaign but, more importantly, asked British citizens to contribute to the site their version of a normal life. While we're not sure this is all that normal, we've gotta be happy for this guy who defines his version of normal as, "Playing badminton with my 19 year old girlfriend knowing that i may not be quicker than her, but my experience wins in the end!
Adding a change up to the American Dairy Association's Got Milk? campaign, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners has created a new campaign focusing on a race of aliens from Brittlelactica who suffer from a "series of horrible health ailments" until they visit earth and discover a special elixer called Da Iry. A TV ad points to a content-rich website that riffs on the supposed problems a diet without milk can cause. Brittelactica is broken into four regions, Insomniastan, PMStonia, Papua Hairthinny and Cavitopi, each suffering from ailments caused from the lack of milk. Each region contains a history and a message from the region's chancellor. each of whom suffers from his region's ailment.
Now here's an ad with some moxie if that's the right word. In this ad for Aloha Airlines, we have this couple sitting together accompanied by the copy, "We'll deal with your luggage. You deal with your baggage." Whether that sentiment eludes to the husband's bulging mid-sectional baggage or the personal baggage he burdens his wife with with his apparent smugness, the ad certainly extends well behind the save haven of most ridiculously sachrin airline advertising. The work comes from Hawaiian agency Milici Valenti Ng Pack.
