Biscuit Boy

cravendale_30_stills_01_0We arrived in Brighton last night, after sixteen hours of travel. But thanks to the miracle of Zopiclone, I’m not feeling too jet lagged.

As I was waiting for my sleeping pill to kick in last night, I saw this new spot for Cravendale. I’ve always loved their ads – and this one made me laugh uncontrollably. (OK – maybe I’m a tad jet lagged…)

Meet Barry the Biscuit Boy.

Quite the Catch

Tomorrow is Good Friday. It is a holiday, so I won’t be posting anything. I’ll probably be dealing with a hangover instead. And then on Monday, I’m heading to Brighton and London for two weeks, so my posting my be a tad sporadic in the upcoming weeks. Not that anyone will even notice. So this was pretty much a waste of a paragraph, but whatever.

On to today’s ad!

This spot is for the company called Followfish. It was done by Leagas Delaney in Hamburg, Germany and it illustrates Followfish’s sustainable fishing practices… compared to the ‘other guys’.

No One Sees it Like You

A really nice ad for Canon by Leo Burnett, Sydney.

Although I did feel compelled to blink a little more than usual while watching this…

The Art of Advertising

This is amazing. Truly advertising as an art… or art as advertising? Either way, this video showcases a day in the life of the brave men and women, known as Wall Dogs, who paint billboards on the side of buildings in New York.

Stolen from these guys.

Who Gives an Eff About an Oxford Comma

What is the Oxford Comma? Should we be using it? Why? And who truly gives an eff about it?

For anyone who has ever wondered, TED Talks addresses the topic in this fun animated video.

 

Personally, I think the more commas, the better. You get a comma! And YOU get a comma! Commas for EVERYBODY!!

Artificial Sweetness

This is the sweetest life insurance commercial that I’ve ever seen. Like a big old spoonful of saccharin. It almost made me emote, it’s that good. (But at the end of the day, it never happened – wahh wahh.)

Via The SF Egoist.

Didn’t Happen

More film fest ads – this time for the ‘IndieLisboa 11th International Independent Film Festival’. These two spots were created by Leo Burnett, Lisbon, PortugalAn interesting idea, I see where they were going with this, I wish they would have been taken a little further. Still, good work.

Game of Social Thrones

Hootsuite uploaded this ad three days ago. Well-played. Excellent timing to coincide with the season premier of season 4.
