Knab is bank backwards. It's also a new way of banking. So why smash the bottle against a boat when you can smash a whole boat into the bottle?
Lernert & Sander bring their own brand of smooth imagery to a simple yet unexpected idea, summing up Knab's philosophy in a single shot. When they zig, you zag. Or launch ships into bottles.
GEICO Dough Boy Commercial - Happier than the Pillsbury Doughboy on His Way to a Baking Convention - (2013)
The Pillsbury doughboy sneaks a deadly baking pin through security and a TSA agent tries to frisk him without tickling him. Suddenly the cobranded tag is useful again, because Geico has done this sort of thing before. Isn't hilarious that advertising mascots are celebrities too? The Pillsbury Doughboy is in his own league, he starred in a Milk ad already back in 2004. That was epic.
So Maxwell the pig (as in the one who yelled WEE WEE WEE all the way home) is on a date, and parked... because the car broke down... and his lady hopes this might mean steaming windows.....
Alas, Maxwell is a pig but not that kind of pig so he suggests they lay games on his smartphone instead of the back seat. This would be just your regular ad if it wasn't for the fact that one million moms claims it promotes bestiality.
A ventriloquist and his dummy, Tommy, are daydreaming while scratching their California Lucky for Life Scratchers. Yep, if they win they'll be finding a girl ventriloquist riding on an ATV with her dummy alongside them, into the sunset. Ho-kay. I suppose there are silier things to do with your money.
American Express teamed up with Twitter Twitter to allow users who sync their card to Twitter to buy directly on the platform.
Great news for Amex who continues to be at the forefront of technology. And even better news for Twitter who continues to look for ways to make money.
Sounds great. Also I imagine a lot of drunken impulse buys. Win win! Can I buy a kidney?
Also, when did product demonstrations become the benchmark for ads of this nature? Sorry but iPad ads are boring as shit, and we all know it.
"We need dip jokes." he he he. Nice Andy Richter cameo, too.
First it was Dance Fight, now it's Bar Punch. Man, Wexley, what's up with gettin' all hardcore on the bankers? Head spins and punches from vague Austrian sounding body-building types who sound more like they're saying "Nuke man," than "Milk man?" I don't think that's what the FDIC had in mind, yo.
This one comes from Wexley School For Girls, and their ever so friendly bankers from HomeStreet.
It takes friendly neighborhood banker to a whole new level. A Step Up level. I'd settle for bankers who knew what they were doing.
Guy Shelmerdine from Smuggler directed this demanding little brat, sorry - Bundle of Joy - for BBH shilling a rather clever savings account from Barcleys. Kids are demanding little sods, and eventually they'll demand a house. You can help save up for their mortgage, and if the payments are made on time you'll get your money back after three years. Nice.
This spot features Chris Paul, NBA All-Star and #1 point-guard for the Los Angeles Clippers.. and his long lost twin brother Cliff Paul who is a state farm agent as they are both born to assist. I see what you did there.
* not this campaign launched Christmas day 2012
Los Angeles, Calif., Jan. 2, 2013 – Farmers Insurance, one of the country’s leading insurers, will unveil its latest advertising campaign, “It’s Smarter to Have a Plan,” during this week’s series of college football bowl games.
Designed to help consumers become smarter about insurance by showing a number of important and practical insurance tips, the new campaign also reinforces Farmers Insurance’s position as a strong and experienced company with knowledgeable and industry-leading agents.
Joe Pytka has left the bizarre ice-bears behind him and returned to making kids say seemingly heavy stuff, when they're just talking about a rollercoaster they once knew. Yep, hurricane Sandy did a proper number on the Star Jet Roller Coaster at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, NJ. Tossed it straight out to sea, or as one of the children here say "it drowned". They're sad about this. They remember that they screamed when riding it. And that their brother threw up. And that there's cotton candy. They want it back. With more loops.
Lesbians kissing. A legless man sprinting on hi-tech prostheses, likely nod to Oscar Pictorius. A lookalike to Licia Ronzulli and her baby girl Vittoria in European Parliament plenary sessions. Factory workers, thousands of them, dressed in pink. A rock thrown at the police. An iceberg melting. A closeup of an occupy protestor with money taped on his mouth. Wind power. A family watching all of this on TV. And none of them decided to throw a rock at it for airing the most hypocritical ad of 2012. Amazing.
Short edit of the thirty second secret santa.
Five dollar secret santa? I'm surprised nobody came with a five-dollar foot long.
A bunch of disgruntled office workers are decidedly un-cheery as they open their secret santa gifts. The best is the chirpy blond who re-gifted a frog-stapler from last year. This commercial goes with these New York Lottery Bus Shelters, a few made with real blinking lights that are currently running in New York city.
