So...what's going on in this new McDonald's commercial from leo Burnett? Well, Spaceman Stu, a little kid, lands in front of a McDonald's, is handed a Happy Meal filed with all his favorite things. He's a very happy traveler. Especially at the end of the commercial when he catches a glimpse of the McDonald's employees killer legs. Weird.
Anyway, the ad's a month old but it's a slow news day and we caught this on AgencySpy so we thought we'd share.
The fact Hollywood is even humoring Sylvester Stallone by making his The Expendables is shocking in and of itself. Of course, as these things go, it could be the biggest blockbuster of all time.
But the fact the film warranted the creation of Rambo: The Musical by the creators of Conan the Barbarian: The Musical is pretty impressive. Who knows how stupid or how brilliant the movie will be but this rendition of Rambo is a good one.
You have to hand it to Stallone though. Who thought a dude like him could create an Oscar winning film about a block-headed boxer. Or pull in 70 million 30 years later with the final chapter of his Rocky saga. To see what he can do with every big name action hero of the last thirty years, all together in one film, including Governor Schwarzenegger, will be intriguing to say the least.
While this just screams fake publicity stunt, it seems a resort in Russia did parasail a donkey last Thursday to promote its private beach. Or, depending upon which reports you choose to believe, a parasailing company did it to promote its own business..
The stunt took place in the coastal village of Golubitskaya. Reports state the donkey brayed loudly and children screamed at the sight while everyone took pictures and no one called the police. It's also reported the donkey landed violently and was dragged for a bit before it came to a stop.
Police in Moscow are taking a look into possible animal abuse which could result in a two year jail sentence for those behind the stunt. A video of the event can be seen here of after the jump below.
We're just too jaded to take this at face value.
We love Specsavers. More accurately, we love their advertising. If you've seen the submarine movie Das Boot (or the Matthew McConaughey version of it), you'll appreciate this commercial. But you won't see the end coming. Though if you use your imagination and understand that Specsavers ads are always about what can happen if you don't have the right specs, you just might figure it out before the reveal.
Reminiscent - in a small way - of A Clockwork Orange comes this work from Young & Rubicam and Hungry Man Films for VH1. In the 1:45 video we see the ying and the yang of the rock world. Rockstar. And Anti-rockstar. Highlife. And lowlife. Cleavage-bearing hot chicks with huge boobs. And fully-dressed hotel staff with no boobs at all. First class. And economy class. Matter. And Anti-Matter.
And we all know what happens when matter meets anti-matter. Except, of course, when it's a really strange commercial for VH1 which makes a not so subtle (intentional? unintentional?) jab at it's aging audiences' bladder control issues. Young
There's nothing like cleavage to distract from a message. Well, that along with a MacGyver wannabe and a foreign language to cause one to wonder what the hell is going on in this Volkswagen commercial. Something needs fixing and MacGyver is there to do it...or screw it up totally. That or it's also a Home Depot commercial. Anyway...that's for pointing us to this, AdFreak.
Awww. There's always room for kitties in advertising, right? LA's Lake Street Creamery knows this and they are unapologetically leveraging that cuddly goodness.
Oh my cuteness!
Hmm. In a cross between an amoebae video you'd see in biology class and a Cheese Doodle, Cadbury attempts to illustrate the...um...beauty of their Flake candy bar. This wisp of tasty beauty was brought to us by Fallon London and was directed by Baillie Walsh.
"Who wants to win a rigged awards ceremony anyway," asks Neil Hamburger in this Lost Planet video. There's broken wine glasses. There's whining. There's profanity. There's shattered egos. There's police intervention. Yea, it's a spoof but it's not like this sort of behavior never happens at awards shows. This week being Cannes week and all...
The power of the female breast has been called into action again. This time for Belgian breastfeeding shop Boobs and Burps. In the video, called Happy Boobs, we see several woman flexing their boobs to the tune of a cutesey song about children.
And that's all there is.
