Everyone and their dog is posting this ad – but that’s because it’s really good.

Thanks K-Mart and agency DRAFTFCB Chicago for some interesting holiday videos:
Hope you all enjoyed your holidays! Me, I’m taking another week off and heading to foggy San Francisco. There’s no guaranteed posting schedule while I’m gone… I guess as long as inspiration hits me… and if I can type with a cocktail in my hand (duh).
In the meantime, keeping things festive, check out this cute animated short video called “The Bell Ringer”. It was created as part of a campaign for the Red Cross, to help raise funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Once you’re done the video, go check out the interactive holiday site.
This campaign, created by Royal, L.A., is only on for 25 days – and right now there are 15 days left to donate. If you’re still feeling in the giving mood, and didn’t blow all your Christmas cash on some cheap Boxing Day electronics, perhaps you would like to donate.
Merry Christmas Eve, y’all. Since I’m busy
drinking spending time with family, posts may be a little lighter than usual. But you’re probably not even reading this anyway.
Here’s an old Heineken ad for your viewing pleasure.
For those of you not able to be with the ones you love – or the ones you pretend to love – this season, your go-to solution might be Skype or Facetime. But this year Google wants to you have a Hangout instead!
I have to admit, I’ve never used Hangout. I don’t like new things. But you know what I am a fan of? Claymation. And now Google has released a Wallace & Gromit ad promoting Hangouts, and these familiar characters have put some of my concerns at ease. Enough to perhaps try Hangouts at Christmas.
This ad is selling ALDI Christmas ham. But don’t expect any ‘money shots’ of a glistening, delicious jambon. No. In fact, the ham – along with a gang of Santas – heads out to ride the waves on candy cane surfboards.
Does it sell the ham? Not really. It’s not really appetizing, or the main focus of this spot. Is the commercial awesome anyway? Yes.
Props to BMF Australia for getting the Ham Honchos to give thumbs up to this unexpected and fun creative.
