Make the Logo Bigger doesn't like this goofy new Dairy Queen spot in which three people enjoy the chain's Flamethrower sandwich countering all the YouTube LMAO/LOL love it's getting by wondering if there's an acronym for "annoying out loud." Oh wait, there is. It's AOL but that's an entirely different story altogether. Anyway, we love Bill from Make the Logo Bigger but we have to disagree with him on this one. Sure, the spot is horribly over the top but it's also absolutely fuckin' hilarious! And, it's so unlike everything else out there, it jumps right off the screen and screams, "Notice Me! I'm A Commercial!" We noticed. We like.
Being blatantly stereotypical for a moment, we know cars seem to command a certain level of love from guys and it's not usually the women who become so enamored by them they do crazy things like flash a car with their lingerie-clad bodies. However, the Porsche in this commercial is the lucky one from the look of its rear spoiler. But, wait. There may be some anatomical incorrectness here or, at least some lesbian love considering most cars are referred to as "she" making this car's "reaction" a bit odd to say the least. But in this day and age of fluid sexual orientation, who's to judge?
In a witty nod to increasingly skeletal celebu-rexics like Nicole Ritchie and others who enjoy inserting food in mouth only to puke it up three minutes later, Grey Australia, in a follow up to their Paris Hilton Ocean Spray Colonic spoof, has created a commercial introducing an Ocean Spray drink that even a 98 pound weakling can enjoy.
According to one Adrants reader, this commercial for Trident Spearmint Watermelon Splash is "plaguing" Canada. We can certainly see why. It's not a stretch to assume opera goers - or anyone for that matter - would take too kindly to a guy strolling into the auditorium wearing nothing but a red Speedo and rubbing his ass in people's faces as he made his way to his seat. Somehow this is supposed to sell gum. We're at a loss to see how.
Spicing up the laundry detergent category, UK agency Bartle Bogle Hegary has created a visually interesting commercial for Unilever's Persil. Dubbed Persil small & mighty, the detergent is concentrated and it's tagline promises "Small cap, mighty results." Narrated by a small boy who explains how his mother pours the detergent into the was which results in a "ginormous firework," the commercial does, indeed, explode with color in front of a stark, white background.
It's certainly exciting and we wonder if our black and tan wardrobe needs a bit of spicing up after seeing this colorfully orgasmic clothing explosion.
If you're a caveman (no, not the Geico caveman because you, my friend, would somehow think this is yet another slight on your kind) and you're eating a "Half Chocolately, Half Candy, Half Crazy" Vertigo bar from Topps Confections, you might want to keep your arms close by. The campaign, which kicks off March 19, was created by Duval Guillaume New York and will air through May 28 on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, ABC Family among others. Here's a look at one of the four :15's.
According to Molson Breweries, 36 percent of Candian hockey fans think players should be allowed to have more liberal curves on their stick. Maybe not for actually playing hockey but definitely for lazily reaching for a beer. Zig created. Untitled Produced.
"Looks like we've both got a whole that could use some filling." Couple that statement with imagery of a lecherous donut and busty jogger drinking from a fountain and you've got yourself copy which passes as acceptable these days. While there's nothing wrong with wanting to fill holes whenever one has the chance, imagery like this in a donut ad is just plain creepy. Especially if you're watching the ad while sitting next to anyone other than your very, very significant other. Well, we guess Krispy Kreme is doing all they can to keep it up. Their business, that is.
In a new commercial for online retailer BlueFly, two co-workers who have been eying each other for a long time finally hook up, have dinner together and wake up in the same bed. Planning ahead, the woman makes sure she has the right attire so as to avoid suspecting glances at the office the next morning. The M2GL-created ad was directed by TonyGoldwyn. Here's the :30 and the extended :90.
Here's one of those ads that makes you want to check your arms for track marks to make sure you aren't high on something. In this entrancing Innocent smoothie commercial, an orange introspectively ponders life after death as he prepares to become part of the product. You can see more of the refreshingly odd campaign here.
The campaign is not endorsed by Innocent but an effort by Swedish agency Peacock Advertising to pitch the account.
