Come With Us

I adore the commercials for Sky TV. This one is no exception.

Check out this previous spot also by DDB Auckland New Zealand.

Going Through The Motions

I love this spot for the Melbourne Writers Festival, created by JWT Melbourne. Dark, funny, attention-grabbing… just like me!

Super-Pharm, Super Good

Watching the following ads for Super-Pharm is pure joy. Created by Saatchi & Saatchi, Israel, these are fun, entertaining, and right on the money for the target audience.

Bologna

Round. Ready. Right.

Round. Ready. Right.

This commercial was on Buzzfeed the other day and the title of the post was ‘The Funniest Lunch Meat Commercial Ever Produced‘.

Really? Like, ever, ever? I’d like to know how Buzzfeed came to that conclusion. I mean, it’s pretty funny, but is it really THE funniest lunch meat commercial ever produced? Did they watch every lunch meat commercial ever made? Is there some sort of award or ribbon for this achievement? I say ‘bologna’!

This moderately amusing spot was created by McGarryBowen.

Have you ever heard David Sedaris impersonate Billy Holiday singing the Oscar Meyer song? It’s worth a listen.

Meet Adrien

adrienThis is disturbingly bad-ass and it makes me want to see what happens next. Prepare yourselves, for this is what nightmares are made of.

Adrien is a dramatic web series combining unique visual black humor, action, mystery and intrigue. The development project is currently seeking funding. They’re asking for folks to share the site, teasers and encourage them by leaving a little comment (scroll down to the bottom of the site).

Check out the four teasers:

Push For Drama

Remember the Push To Add Drama video that came out a while ago? Well, here’s part two. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go drink too much wine. TGIF.

The Existential Adventures of Tim Maia

tim-maia-cover_croppedThe following animated two-minute spot was created to promote a record release for a hard-livin’ man named Tim Maia, “the greatest (and craziest) soul singer you never heard of”.

Before Tim passed in 1998, he was infamous in Brazil. Constantly (and with a smile on his face) mixed up with drugs, women, money, guns, and even a UFO cult. He lived how he wanted, when he wanted.

This illustration is brilliant, done by Momo and Spirits, and working with ad agency Super Heroes from the Netherlands. The video was narrated by Devendra Banhart.

Vancouver Advertising Event: NABS Cannes Reel

2234_Header_Image

One of my favorite industry events is happening January 31, 2013 at the Scotiabank Theater, downtown Vancouver. The Cannes Lions Screening, presented by NABS. This event is always guaranteed to be a good time.

Gather together with a bunch of industry folk, and see how many cocktails you can drink before going into the theater to watch some of the world’s best adverting.

Doors open at 5pm.

Screening starts at 6:30pm.

Although pizza and popcorn are being served, I recommend you grab something before coming as the food can go rather quickly at this event. Also, bring some cash for 50/50 tickets, as all proceeds go to NABS.

Get your tickets here!

Lottery Win

The internet is boring today.

The best thing I could find was this ad for the Georgia State Lottery by BBDO. It’s funny – except for the woman who comments how everyone will know she’s single because of the kitty book that she gets as a gift.

That’s not funny. It’s a sad, sad truth.
