FANTA Gets Its Own Coke Happiness Factory

fanta_fantasy.png

Is it just us or is this German Fanta commercial a whole lot like the Coke Happiness Factory commercials? Of course, Fanta being a division of Coke, we guess we can't much blame Jung Von Matt for giving us an homage. Alex & Steffen did the 2D and 3D work in the video.

The video gives us an epic, period piece battle in which a castle full of characters attempts to quell a giant, pillaging robot who, as it turns out, is just a cooler at a family picnic. Leave it to the hot princess to finally vanquish the mechanical foe.

This Cesar Dog Food Ad is the Best Dog Food Ad You Will Ever See

cesar_dog_food_table.png

Dog food ads. Usually silly stupid things with pets and their owners acting dumb and doing idiotic things. Not this UK-based commercial for Cesar dog food. Perhaps one of the best dog food commercial we have ever (and will ever) see.

Entitled, Love Them Back, the commercial's emotional appeal is fueled by Tom Hodge's Walk Through The Village.

The ad is a testament to the loving bond that can form between animal and human even in the face of devastating loss.

Farting Baby Drops A Wet One in Samgsung's 'Swaddle Master' Ad

swaddle_master_samsung.png

My how far phone advertising has come. No longer are dads idiotic imbeciles who can't figure out the internet. Nope. They have progressed to masters of the swaddle. Well, that is with a little help from the Samsung Galaxy S4's Air Gestures and Smart Pause.

Our dad in this 72andSunny-created ad is quite pleased with his swaddle job. That is until junior decides to pump out an epically loud and disgustingly juicy fart.

And if you simply can't get enough farting babies, you simply MUST watch this compendium of Top Ten baby Farts. We guarantee you will not be able to get through it without laughing yourself to tears. Number three will have you on the floor!

Chevy Reduces Women to Color-Obsessed Shopoholics

chevy1.jpg

Because, after all, we know fashion conscious women always choose their vehicle for its color and not its performance. And they obviously don't know how to drive right either. And all they like to do all day long is shop. And eat chocolate. But if we are being shallow and choosing, I'll take the leggy brunette in the pleated miniskirt.

The ad comes to us courtesy of Commonwealth. It was shot by Angus Wall and produced by Elastic

I Bet He Still Drinks Carling Black Label

carling_trick_shot.png

Ever hang around with your buddies or girlfriends the morning after and trade stories about last night? Ever realize the stories are usually grander and more epic that they were in real life? Kind of like a beer commercial? Oh wait...

UK agency Shiny Red is out with a, ahem, beer commercial that harkens the brand's 80's and 90's commercials and even features the original duo that appeared in the brand's "I Bet He Drinks Carling Black Label" ads, Stephen Frost and Mark Arden.

In this new ad, one half of a new duo attempts an epic pool shot but his epicness is short lived as, akin to most epic stories, this one has a not so epic finish.

Subara Delivers Awkward Skinny Dipping Moment

subarau_nature_painting.png

We like these two new Carmichael Lynch-created commercials for Subara. One awakens a man's inner passion to paint everything he sees. Another enables a couple to, much like Nike, say, "Let's Do That."

Both spots engage in a way unlike most car commercials because, well, they are less about the car and more about what the car (or, let's be honest, any car) enables one to do.

VW Subtly (Desperately?) Urges Men to Buy Beetle

beetle_soft.png

Over 60% of VW Beetle owners are women, the highest percentage of any vehicle according to TrueCar.com. In an effort to man-up the Beetle, VW redesigned it last year basically dropping a gigantic weight on top of the vehicle to squash it into a more lean and mean looking vehicle.

A new ad for the convertible version of the Beetle created by Deutsch subtly drives home the point they'd really like more men to buy their car. In the spot, a young woman is awoken by her boyfriend at the window on a beautiful sunny day. They drive around a small town that they seem to have to themselves, except for a lone caribou. It's shot all fuzzy-like with soothing music so as to, perhaps, entice women into begging their boyfriend's to buy the car.

Baby Loves Stanton Optical Commercial

stanton_optical.png

So from time to time we get sucked into YouTube, forget why we went there in the first place and stumble upon odd content like this 2011 commercial for Stanton Optical. Actually, it's not really a commercial at all. Rather, it's a video of a baby watching a Stanton Optical commercial.

We all know there are commercials out there that people love and while babies can be easily amused by just about anything, it's still funny to see a baby get worked up simply from watching a pretty basic commercial yet a commercial CEO Daniel Stanton dubs "unconventional" and the eyeglass store's secret to success.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming now.

Microsoft Reduces Apple's iPad to 'Chopsticks'

windows%20_tablet_chopsticks.png

The Apple bashing is heating up again. Joining Samsung in the battle against Apple, Microsoft is out with a new commercial that takes on Siri's less than perfect multitasking skills. In the ad, a Windows 8 tablet sits next to an iPad and while the Windows 8 tablet gets busy, Sire simply can't keep up, "I'm sorry, I can only do one thing at a time. I guess PowerPoint isn't one of those things. Should we just play 'Chopsticks?'"

The ad leads to a page on which a comparison can be made between the Windows 8 tablet and the iPad.
