Forget men in Gorilla suits playing the drums. Publicis Dublin arranged a bright purple tree in a sleepy park, so that joggers, moms and nature lovers could stumble across the magical chocolate-giving tree and its Alpaca Unicorn guardians. Alpaca Unicorns are way way cuter than gorillas, and they don't spit like Llamas.
Feels like I never run into advertising stunts like this around town. What does a girl have to do to get caught on a hidden camera?
Allied Irish Bank wants you to know you can bank on the move with their new mobile app.
The director does, too. But they didn't have a huge budget. So instead, the spot was entirely filmed on an iPhone 5.
Which also makes it a nice ad for the iPhone 5.
And considering how dreadfully boring Apple's work has been as of late, I'd say it's the best Apple commercial done in a while, too.
Nice job, gents.
Here's the girls from Adland.. Selling diet dreams from [insert brand].
Apparently LowLowKerry are so sick of clichés that they made an ad campaign full of clichés. It makes sense to women-in-adland-land. We don't mean this adland, and we don't mean moi either so I might have to turn in my woman-card. But somewhere this isn't a cliché of an ad-idea and actually considered funny. Maybe in Ireland.
Huby Harton does a spoof of the Southern Comfort Beach ad, but on a cold beach in Ireland. Where nipples are hard, mens legs are pale, beach bums sleep in thermo-wear and even that wee dog looks like he's freezing his tail off. Props for the nice touch with the rainbow too. This is all set to the song "Ghost Riders in the Sky", sung by Huby Harton. You can pick up Huby Harton's Irish Country and Western album anywhere and the ladies who did this spoof at Tailored Films.
For the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. Get closer than ever before. Nice touch with the prom outfits.

Nicely shot but it feels like I’ve seen this film before.
This is no time for relaxing "This is the hour of POWEEEERRRRRRRR" shouts the scary tattooed muscle dude who keeps flexing his pecs, yikes. We know these types of guys, they are the reason we stay the hell away from some gyms. Energie gyms & Publicis Dublin know it too, so they had Blinder Ltd produce the spot with the superbly cast scary muscle-dude.
Well, that didn't take long. The Facebook ad about chairs is now nicely spoofed by Dónal Mulligan, Cian Markey & Richie Nolan. Chairs are like facebook they say, you can sit on them, share pictures of kittens, and masturbate. Facebook and chairs are like doorbells. Heroin. Toilet paper. This thing. After you've stopped laughing, seriously consider the pay-off. Log out.
Nicely done gais, you've just yanked the chair out from under the pretentious facebook ad. *clap clap clap*

Ben and Jerry's Ireland introduced their new Core flavour Karamel Sutra to Dublin via this installation where a giant spoon dug into Dublin's core to find said ice-cream. To create this, Ben & Jerry teamed up with street art activist Will St Leger and built this punny "good to the core" moment in Dublin’s city centre. Shame we can't eat it, I need about this much Ben&Jerry's right now. Maybe a touch more.
The ISPCC have found a young boy worthy of some sort of commercial-acting Oscar. He delivers the message while being punched to the ground by his father. "But beating children is illegal in Ireland", you might say, and you're right. But the problem is, family rights (as a unit) outweigh children's rights (as individuals), and young children in the care of abusive parents can't wait for this to change. Young boys like this one can not seek social work or child protection support without parental consent. You can change this before he grows up.
Jacobs Fig Rolls are tasty.
Rothco bring us the spanish accent seal who doles out advice like "kiss him you fool" and lives by the motto "now is good".
The Hive, Dublin had Adrian Stewart take this portrait of "our hero character from our recent tv ad" and use this as the supporting poster campaign to go with Memories. The campaign launched mid november and is already going really well in terms of donations made to Barnado's. Everyone can see themselves or their children in this lads sad eyes.
I don't know how many times I've looked out of the window on various commutes and thought up great commercial & music video ideas to be shot on said commute. It seems that an entire generation of creatives have the same habit, some ideas better than others. This one is fun to watch, as Chris Palmer from Gorgeous has spelled out the lyrics in the view from the train.
Spot all the things that work with the lyrics, there's a white rabbit for tea on the balcony, a bee jumping on a trampoline for "B", a red balloon with the letter D and so on. It's quite cute.
"You'll never get across that road!"
