Slow-mo Bro

I cracked a little smile when I watched this spot for Dove Men by Ogilvy & Mather, Brazil.

Forgive Us

Most truthful and fantastic beer commercial yet, from Ogilvy & Mather, Argentina.

Coffee Time

Let’s take a look at a fun, yet bizarre (my favorite), commercial for Costa coffee. One of the UK’s largest coffee chains, and second in the world after Starbucks. Creative by Karmarama.

No Need to Get Nasty

BBDO New York releases another funny FedEx ad. This brings the total to… too many to count.

This particular spot, called ‘Candidates’, is promoting FedEx Office, a service from FedEx to create marketing and promotional materials.

Central Goes Latin

Comedy Central has arrived in Latin America, and to promote this, W+K São Paulo has created this really funny (although perhaps somewhat derogatory) two-minute long commercial.

Is this offensive? I kind of feel like it might be. But that’s probably what makes it so funny.

Radioheads

There’s an unexpected twist in today’s commercial, which comes to us from Belgium. This funny spot was created by the agency Dallas, Antwerp for JOE FM, a local radio station.

This might be the best commercial that I’ve ever seen for a radio station.

Liberty Mutual Launches ‘Humans’

Maybe it’s the Human League soundtrack. Or the fact that the voice-over is done by Paul Giamatti. Or perhaps it’s just because when bad stuff happens to other people, it’s irrefutably hilarious.

Whatever the case, this new commercial for Liberty Mutual Insurance, entitled ‘Humans’ gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from this cranky-pants reviewer.

Great work by Hill Holliday, Liberty Mutual’s AOR out of Boston.

Man Fuel. For Man Stuff.

We’ve all experienced the feeling of fully loaded plastic shopping bags cutting into our hands. All in the name of avoiding the “second-trip”. Men, more often than women, experience the “One Trip Syndrome”. Often to the detriment of their hands and on occasion, the groceries.

Yorkie, a chocolate bar by Nestle, decided to use this phenomenon in one of their adverts. I’m not sure which agency did this creative, or even when this spot aired. But it entertained me, and for that it earns a spot on the blog. Hoorah!

The Way the Internet Should Be

This is a campaign for Clear, an American internet service provider with no long-term contracts or limits. It was created by Venables, Bell & Partners and uses humour to reinforce their messaging and show how cruel and unfair other ISPs are.

Plus one of the spots has a magical cat… so that’s a bonus.

Tall Jan is Malicious

Yesterday I was a little long-winded with my semi-rant about retargeting ads. So today, we’re going to keep it super light and funny. Check out this old ad, created by JWT Syndey for All Bran. It cracks me up every time.
