Yea, yea, yea, we get that this ad for the Samsung POWERbot vacuum cleaner, basically a Roomba made by Samsung is supposed to be ridiculously over the top. And it is. But, seriously?
This is like a Verizon ad with a dad who doesn't know how to use the internet or a beer ad in which a guy uses a soundproof booth to call his wife and lie about the fact he's at a bar with friends or another beer ad in which a bunch of hipster hijack a beer truck. Yea, you've seen those ads.
And here we thought only the Japanese made really weird ads. But no. This one comes from Brazil and it's for energy drink TNT.
Created by Y&R Brazil, we have a very civilized rhinoceros making his way to the gym while wearing earphones and grooving to the music.
If you think it's strange that no one freaks out that there's a rhinoceros on the loose in the city, that's because the rhino is not really a rhino. Once the rhino gets to the gum and looks into the mirror, it's revealed that the rhino is really UFC featherweight boxing champ Jose Aldo.
In one of the most hilarious and beyond-awesome promotions we have seen in a very long time, Toronto-based agency Bensimon Byrne has crafted a hilarious bit for its client, Carnivore Club, a meat-of-the-month club that sells all kinds of salami and other meaty delicacies.
The agency created a video that clearly illustrates how one can insure they get out of truly fucked up situations if only they get coverage from Fucked Up Insurance. Of course, Fucked Up Insurance is actually a subscription to Carnivore Club but from what we see in the video, it's exactly what will get one out of a very fucked up situation.
Did we write fuck enough?
And yes, the campaign actually registered and is using the domain fuckupinsurance.com (which redirects to f-upinsurance.com) as its promotional landing page.
There's just something about Japanese ads. The right amount of goofy. The right amount of innocent fun. The the right amount -- read: complete lack of -- political correctness. These elements combine to make truly light-hearted, fun advertising.
Now you're going to have to stow away your Facebook-style outrage to enjoy this one but try. Really try.
You have to wonder about this one. If you're TV shopping and suddenly tour TV salesperson turns into a freakish looking zombie and scares the shit out of you, how likely are you going to be in a mood to buy a TV?
But, who really cares. This one's not about selling. It's about shocking, getting YouTube views and getting press coverage. Oh and it's Halloween so it's timely.
Give it a watch. And the next time you go TV shopping, you might not want to turn your back on your salesperson. On and it's for Samsung and it was created by Cheil UK.
Here's a brilliant example of creativity. To tout the benefits of Sugru glue, the brand has created The Joy of Fix. Yes, it's a knock off of the famed 1970's book, The Joy of Sex. The work comes complete with diagrams on how to "enjoy the fix."
There's also a second poster that gets all sexual innuendo on us. The six steps on this poster include Feels good hard or soft. Sticky, but in a good way. Rub it gently. Use your imagination. No more dribbles. DO it anywhere and everywhere.
The campiagn also includes a hilarious video in which a guy get all friendly with a bunch of people while they fix things
Who knew? Apparently travel agencies do still exist. If you aren't one of the almost 1 million people who have viewed this so-bad-it's-so-good long form ad from Thorne Travel Agency then you need to stop what you are doing this very moment and watch. No, seriously. Drop everything you are doing right now and give this video a watch.
It's cringe-worthy awesomeness is beyond reproach. You can just see that it was done without the least bit of irony which, of course, is why it's so horrifically good! And it's one of those things that upon first view you're reaction is, "Oh this is totally a joke!" But, no. It's a real thing.
Well after that headline there's not much we can write to further our point about this odd Beagle Street Life Insurance ad created by The Corner. It's like a troll farts and then turns into one of those cute little furry creatures from Gremlims. You know, the movie that had that hot chick from Fast Times at Ridgemont High who took her top off and made Judge Reinhold lose it in the bathroom?
So you all know how Derek Jeter is retiring and there was that Gatorade farewell, right? Well now Jeter has being honored with a different kind of farewell. The kind that comes from the minds of junior high school boys telling jokes and the bathroom and laughing at each other's farts.
But, hey, farts are funny. Especially when they're eminating from the stall next to you and it's all you can to to contain your laughter. Anyway, have a gander at this ode to number 2 from quirky sports slogan t-shirt maker, Sully's.
