Having viewed yet another truth interview commercial and made the decision not to bore you with it, we decided, instead, to share a different take on quitting smoking. And it has to do with readjusting to a life without smoking.
From GSD&M Idea City (wasn't plain old GSD&M good enough?) comes this Ad Council campaign for Legacy called EX. Along with two television commercials (see below), there's a website on which those who hope to quit an share their successes and challenges.
There's also radio, posters and branded air fresheners. See all the campaign elements here.
So what's the latest and greatest in credit card fraud protection? It involves helium and a lot of laughing. Funny as that might sound, it's not. There's something missing in this ANZ Fraud Squad commercial. We're not sure what though. Come to think of it, we're not even sure what the commercial was selling.
This very beautiful spot about very beautiful women calls attention to the horrific practice of female genital mutilation. While our culture can't conceive of such a practice, there are cultures out there where this is the norm. A decidedly unbeautiful thing to do/
Earlier this month we shared with you the work virtual agency was doing for Network for Animals. It was a series of videos on YouTube that took us through the process of selecting a spokesperson to appear in a commercial for the cause group. Well, gig has found their man. And we can say man because, well, it is a man. His name is Owen Miller and if Morgan Freeman had a brother (does he?), this guy would be him.
So here's the finished product. And here's all the lead up videos to the finished product.
By offering skiers a "Swinger's Pass," Copper Mountain has made it OK to "ride something new." Oh the double entendre is dripping from this one. The work is a continuation of a campaign Wexley School for Girls has done for the resort.
In January it was announced Megan Fox would become the new face of Georgio Armani. There were stills. Now there's a video. And now there's a blogger complaining the video should have featured more of Fox's legs and shown her walking.
Seriously? We'd never complain. We'll take Megan Fox anyway she wants to give herself to us. Any way. At all.
People! You can't be choosy when it comes to hotness like Megan Fox.
So...is there such a thing as the World's Greatest Spokesperson? According to Nationwide Insurance, yes, and they set out to find him living in a cabin on a snowy mountaintop. Apparently, the dude has a history. He's one work for Bears Are Dangerous and a PSA about the dangers of germs.
Of course, you've never heard of him because he's a fabrication. But he does have his own website, Facebook page, Twitter account (he's following no one...not good)and a T-shirt making application.
From director Brian Beletic and with music from The Hours (Ali in the Jungle), this new commercial for Nike highlights several athletes who have faced certain challenges in their careers but keep trying and trying again. Because, you know, Nike says Just Do It.
In the ad we see Lance Armstrong, Maria Sharapova and many other athletes who've hit it big...and work hard to do it again. MassMarket did the vfx.
Well here's an ad that's sure to get a few panties in a bunch. On the premise that women get bored easily, Lynx is out with a new commercial touting its Lynx Twist, the fragrance that changes. And, apparently, that's not the only thing Lynx changes in this ad. While it'd be nice to have styling robots following you around insuring your woman is bnever bored, there are some things that just can't be changed. Well, easily, that is.
In what begins as yet another lame celebrity-fueled soft drink commercial, we see hip hop artist Drake trying to lay tracks but he's "just not feelin' it." Cut to Vanilla Ice-esque homeboy wannabe producer who wishes Drake would cut the shit and just sing
Drake takes a sip of Sprite and tries again. This time he feels it. He really feels it. In fact, he feels it so much, his body can't take it and he goes all Herbie Hancock Rockit until his woofer lets loose (ejaculates) so much feeling, Drake can't help but lay one down righteously.
Really, really awesome animatronics and effects by Spectral Motion in this BBH-created commercial.
