While it might be really cool to be some sort of world record holder for solving Rubik's Cube or making amazing quarters shots or creating little Jaws puppet movies, Axe thinks thinks otherwise and wants these guys to go out and get a girlfriend. Of course, Axe is there to help with its body deodorant. There's three spots in this South African campaign which you can view here, here and here.
Here's a whacked little promotional clip for FOX's American Dad that features a guy with a great attitude on life. At the end of the clip, he tells us why he's such a positive guy.
If you've seen any financial services-related commercial in America, you know most drone on incessantly about service and advice and expert consultation or good hands or they get all warm and fluffy like a Kiplinger's Magazine cover or a State Farm commercial. In India, they have fun. In India, they poke fun at the American cowboy. In India, they catch the market by the balls...uh...bulls. Written by Sunil Shibad and produced by Steam Engine Production, this commercial is for Ventura Securities.
Delta has a new spot that features Atlanta Braves player Jeff Francoer which we like a lot. Perhaps it's because this brings back the nostalgia that once captured the game. Perhaps it's the music. Perhaps we're just feeling emotional this morning. Who know. You watch it and tell us.
Words and Pictures has given their cartoon treatment to the messy Hasbro Oozinator ad.
Club Mom has introduced the web's first social network for moms. Now discussion about the consistency of baby poop can be taken to a global level.
IQ Interactive and Arnold have created a virtual tour website for the recently launched Royal Caribbean ship Freed of the Seas.
Gatorade and Just Ad Orange think Americans should care more about World Cup football and this ad asks them to consider it.
The growth of Walmart is scary, Really scary.
AdFreak asks, Is there anything breasts can't sell?
AdJab analyzes a Suzuki Forenza ad and wonders what a "smoking hot" woman stripping in an elevator has to do with selling cars.
Here's an ad that does absolutely nothing to conceal the double meaning of the product. Created by Bos in Toronto for its client Mac's Convenience/Mac's Froster, it promotes a drink called Whack. Appropriately, the email that contained this commercial was signed "Enjoy."
OK, this is sort of funny. It's certainly loud in the city and whenever you see one of those burly biker dudes, you do sort of wonder what personal deficiency they're trying to hide with their big ass bike. Well, this commercial answers that question quite clearly.
Someone else is going to have to explain the point of this too me because after viewing the site, I just don't see the point. We should be making it easier for people to consume advertising, not more difficult. BBDO has created this thing called the One Second Theater that is embedded in the last second of it's Dancin' Elephant commercial and can be viewed by moving forward one frame at a time.
Here's a commercial for Aquafina water that's 59 seconds too long. The joke's pretty dumb too. Yet another fancy, high-priced production to insure nice, fat agency fees. Oh wait. Silly me. That's a good thing. Of course we want big fat agency fees. Otherwise, how would we fund all the foosball tables and pool tables and "client lunches" and "business" cell phone bills and trips to Cannes? Sorry, we lost our mind for a minute there. This spot is great!
Here's Jessica Alba doing the Asian commercial thing. Like all kinds of other celebs who go to Japan and other far away (from America) places to make a little extra cash without suffering overexposure in America, Alba, her handlers and the handlers of other celebs seem to have forgotten about these things called the Internet and YouTube where geography is a non-issue. Sure, a commercial airing on TV is still more glamorous and far reaching than a commercial on the web but that won't be the case for much longer. The practice of celebrities "hiding" while making money won't last. If you want to see more American celebrities doing the foreign commercial thing, you should go visit Japander, a site whose sole purpose is to catalog American celebrities appearing in Japanese commercials. Some are hilariously goofy.
