Adland's Commercial Archive - more than 45,000 commercials.
To curb that binge drinking culture, DraftFCB decided to show another angle, you can still act like a drunken hooligan karaokeing and carrying on, despite not having more beers in you. No problem mate, just say Yeah, Nah, then chase down a bus full of pretty girls while tearing your shirt off. Imagine all the people, being sober but still acting drunk. It's easy if you try.
Warning, awkward bro-hug at the end.
It was only a matter of time that those Fish-zeppelins we've been buying off the intarwebs to fly around the office made it into an ad. "Everyday should be a little bit different. Add some colour with h2go. How refreshing. ". Wait, I haven't told you the best part yet. This is directed by Ryan Heron via Flying Fish production. Ha ha HA! I know! Right, so what was the product again? Fish-balloons?
Like any place on earth, Nederlanders die Engels spreken dus een Nederlands accent, but unlike the Swedish one which I can't stand I think the Dutch-English accent is kinda cute. Especially when they say "of" instead of "or" because their synapses just can't handle or being anything but of. So here we're greeted by a Dutch man named Pim de Koel. Yes, De Koel. Pronounced just like cool. According to advertising legend he was born on Queensday, which is one helluva party, and now he's enticing us all to visit Holland. Yes, Holland, not the Netherlands.
PETA loves exploiting your emotions. Nothing new there. However, what is new is this take on animal cruelty, aimed at the TV and film industry.
The spot is voiced by Adrien Brody. And it boils down to this: basically, if the television, film and advertising industries all just used CGI animals like the ape in this commercial, than no apes would be harmed.
Except of course, CGI ones. Apparently, PETA has no trouble suggesting real apes in captivity have it so bad, if given the choice, they'd blow their brains out with a hand gun. And they're sick, SICK enough to inflict this type of cruelty on CGI apes.
By the way, I had no idea hand guns were considered some of the primitive tools apes are able to use. Maybe CGI apes are more evolved than real ones?
"At University of Phoenix, we know the value of your education is where it can take you." they say.. so that's why the ad has built a subway system in downtown L.A.! If only!
The Viral Company Stockholm made a little game for Adidas, and a super long case study film for it. Demonstrating that Stockholm Sweden isn't all hipsters and tall blondes, they interview man & woman on the street who actually tried the game so for once the reactions feel genuine. By connecting their smartphones to the Adidas store open wifi, and then visiting the URL http://adiswipe.com (don't read that too fast, asswipe), the phone connects to the store screen and becomes a full-powered gaming control. Then you can kick balls and score points!
There's no free Adidas shoes at the end, and the screen is small so there's a lost audience opportunity as other people walking by can't really see what's happening. Gold star for effort, I guess.
Winner of a silver Clio award 2013, this student entry has a clever idea of "Ikeanizing" your desktop. That is, clean up those random files and bits you have laying around on the desktop, and sort them into furniture. The Bookshelf holds .doc's, the picture frames hold photos, the shelf holds music. Very clever. Very cute. Very similar to the Clio Bronze winner 2012 from Laboratory Ideas Kft.
The moral of the story here is... Never trust an Australian around a pretty girl. Oh, and something something panoramic glass monoroof.
