Subaru: the car for Dink intellectuals who like to do everything from log rolling to falconry, to, based on the woman's last comments in the spot, a foursome with old hippies in a hot spring pool.
Not really the kind of "Made with love," I was expecting, Subaru.
*Dink = Dual Income No Kids.
When they did the casting specs for this spot, did someone say "let's get a guy who looks like Mark Zuckerberg," or was that just a big coincidence?
Anyway, Subarus are made with love, so you can drive all over the world instead of staying home and taking painting classes. I'm fairly certain that's what the message of this spot is.
Standard Time just moved offices in Los Angeles, from the beach to the heart latest LA creative neighborhood, District LaBrea, because they wanted to be where the action is. Oh, and because they needed a lot more space. Small agencies with growing pains, you know. To show off their skills and beautify the hood, they painted their new office walls. Welcome to Standard Time.
The latest comedy-driven spot for Armor All, via DDB Worldwide San Francisco and Community Films' director Matt Smukler, shows car owners what could happen if they do not respect their cars.
Negligent car owners beware: you’d better show your ride the right amount of respect or you just might get a visit from the Armor All Viking. He’s the star of Armor All’s latest spot, and he has a serious bone to pick with people who don’t take care of their cars. To him, a car is a privilege and if undeserving owners aren’t careful he’ll show up in his shiny custom Viking–mobile and repossess their wheels, their Armor All…and their women.
When MJZ Director Rupert Sanders and Grey New York needed high-end VFX to bring a World War II epic, a medieval fantasy battle, and a bit of science fiction together in a new spot for DIRECTV, they turned to the team at MPC. The spot is a showcase of MPC’s impressive skillset and resources. The LA office led a team that included artists across MPC’s global family of studios, taking the project from rough concept design to photo-real rendering to flawless compositing.
Who babysits the babysitter? In a new video promoting the American Red Cross’ Babysitting Basics online course, Tool Director Erich Joiner takes viewers through a tour of worst-case scenarios for childcare amateurs and parents alike.
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!
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.
There's something about an auto-tuned Lucky singing about the kids and his cereal that really keeps it real, yo. This excellence was made for St Patty's Day, and inspired the client to take it to TV in a fifteen second cut-down that feels like a fifteen second cut-down. I mean really, with such smoove beats you coulda spent the dosh for a 60.
I'm sure the kids would love this...
The extended for Colonial Williamsburg featuring a creepy colonial that makes me laugh because I like creepy humor.
More creepy fun from the Martin Agency for Colonial Williamsburg. This time it's a weird ménage à trois. Our forefathers would be proud.
The ending of this spot made me lolza. Nice casting, too. This is all part of a new rebrand for Williamsburg thanks to the Martin Agency.
Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling and Heating want you to know there's an easier way to get the thermostat at your preferred temperature. It's called not marrying a controlling wife who wants to spend that saved money on shoe shopping.
Short of that, and because it seems we can't seem to get away from "dumb husband," "the wife who only cares about shopping" and "there's an easier way" concepts, the only option is to buy a Mitsubishi electric heating and cooling system.
Fun fact-- they used real lasers in this. Other fun fact, green lasers cause more severe eye damage than red ones.
Nathan Love Director Jim McKenzie brings a wildly nontraditional look to the National Geographic Channel in a promo for the network’s new The 80s: The Decade That Made Us miniseries. A rousing contrast to National Geographic’s traditionally grounded advertising, the animated spot infiltrates the airwaves with a trio of grinning, buff cheese ball characters working out in synch to an electronic frenzy of a song reminiscent of the 1980s.
Oreo and The Martin Agency channels its inner Coke for a happiness-inspired animated spot. But instead of buying the world a sugar-laden beverage though, it's giving fairy tale enemies and vampires and sharks a sugar-laden cookie, all set to some saccharine music by Adam Young, aka Owl City.
"Wonder if I gave an Oreo to you." Well, I can answer what would happen if you're curious. I'm 100% certain I would need a toothbrush. Followed by a strict monitoring of my insulin levels. And then I'd mention the fact Coke already tackled the "what if we bought the opposite of ourselves a Coke" idea seven years ago.
