Draft FCB Zurich decided the best way to celebrate the holidays with BMW was to sing the Christmas song in the world. By showing BMW DTM professional driver Martin Tomczyk driving The Zurich Accapella Group around around a track like a bat out of hell while they sing Jingle Bells.
How does Jingle Bells sound in a car this fast? Awkward!
In his latest contribution for Hallmark, Madheart’s Jan Gleie has directed a spot that captures the spirit of the holidays through a series of disarmingly simple vignettes in which people express their desire to connect with family and friends. It’s part of an ongoing campaign for the brand, out of Leo Burnett, Chicago, employing the theme “Tell Me” and showing how a Hallmark card can satisfy basic human emotional needs.
The spot is composed of a series of artfully crafted portraits in which the subject speaks directly to the camera as if to a loved one of his or her desire for connection. “Tell me that I did a good job.” “…that our traditions matter.” “Tell me you love me for who I am.”
Artist owned-and-operated bi-coastal digital studio Brickyard VFX recently completed work on Target’s “All Things Merry” campaign. The “All Things Merry” campaign illustrates various characters going about their holiday preparation with ease – decorating for a holiday party, stringing outdoor lights and wrapping children’s presents – to promote Target as a one-stop-shop for the holidays. Brickyard designed and executed pre-visualization, color enhancements and additional finishing work for the campaign. In addition, Brickyard composited select shots in “Power Cord Christmas,” a spot featuring a variety of Christmas lights adorning everything from a barn to a basketball hoop, as well as an epic shot of multiple lit Christmas trees along a waterfront.
Artist owned-and-operated bi-coastal digital studio Brickyard VFX recently completed work on Target’s “All Things Merry” campaign. Central to Brickyard’s work on the campaign was digitally replicating a super mom as she seemingly accomplishes ten things at once to prepare for the holidays in “Mrs. Claus Ain’t Got Nothing On Me.” Lead VFX artist Mandy Sorenson explains: “Our team helped map out this particular spot weeks in advance. We worked with Dayton/Faris to create a pre-visualization of the shot which helped us choreograph the multiple moms and determine the framing and camera movements to best tell the story.
The world's largest sprig of mistletoe hangs in the ceiling at Heathrow Terminal 5. It's a ten foot by eight foot structure, which took three weeks to construct, weighs 43kg and includes more than 50 feet of steel tubing and 25 stainless steel balls. Steel balls folks. It's officially the biggest kissing spot there is. If you fancy a snog you should camp out under it. ;)

RKCR Y&R and M&S celebrate the little things that make christmas, including that girl prancing around in her underwear.
Give joy to the neighbor who rocks out quietly after ten. Conceived by Energy BBDO and directed by Aaron Ruell
The campaign encourages people to “Joy Someone” by giving special holiday scratch-off tickets to the unsung heroes in their lives. Central to the campaign is an unexpected retro version of the holiday classic “Joy To the World” arranged by Spank Music.
The track features insightfully humorous new lyrics that celebrate people like “…the guy who took away your futon,” “…the pizza guy who pre-blots your pizza” and “…the lady who made you a giant cat tower.” Ruell’s distinctive visual style brings an unexpected combination of humor and nobility to these people.
Some of you may remember this game as the biggest Atari flop ever. Rumor has it there are landfills bulging over with leftover ET games somewhere in the desert. This depends on who you ask though, it was also one of the most best selling games ever.....
Universal studios don't like this ad being shown - this is the ad that brought us our very first cease and desist! - still I think it caused more damage to the brand Atari than it infringed on the "brand" of ET. I'm sure gamers agree.
