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.

Fire At The Old Well!

A cute spot from Colenso BBDO Auckland for DB Export Gold. This could be a valid excuse to get a Collie.

Stick It To ‘Em

First Aid is easy to learn and the Red Cross is trying to encourage Australians to book classes through this illustrated spot featuring band-aid happy women named Betty. Betty loves her Band-Aids but they’re not always the right solution to a problem. (Clearly Betty has problems that can’t be fixed by a Band-Aid.)

I love the simplicity of this spot. It just goes to show that you don’t need a million dollar 3-D animation to sell your ideas.

Creative direction, script and animation by Monkeystack.

They’re Just Peices of Meat

New World is a grocery store in New Zealand. Working with one of my favorite agencies, Colenso BBDO New Zealand, they created the following two ads. They’re fun, lighthearted, show the benefits of the product, and even get a chuckle. My favorite is the “hubby’s” face in the ‘master butcher’ ad.

Full-Bodied Bears?

A naughty little spot for Localist New Zealand that made me chuckle, by Projector Media. How could I not post an ad with a leather daddy?

Perverts, Cheaters & Rats Breath Easy

This print campaign by Saatchi & Saatchi, New Zealand for Texa Allergy was recently on Buzzfeed, where they identified them as “superbly photographed, award-winning ads for allergy relief medicine“.

I like the idea, but the “peeping Tom” shot is a little disturbing.

Prince Nikolai Stroganov III

A cute ad featuring an entitled kitty who hates the cold. I can relate.

However, the creative doesn’t really do much for the brand. In fact, I’ve just watched the spot and already forget the name. But still, cats!

Ad agency: SuSugar & Partners, New Zealand

Here are a few others featuring Mr. Stroganov.

Is This What the Future Looks Like?

Check out this frightening new commercial by DDB Group New Zealand for Westpac, Australia’s First Bank.

This very well could be a glimpse into the future – that is, if you don’t start planning and saving more money towards a down payment on a house. Brilliant, funny, and memorable.

Next let’s tell stories and braid each others hair!!

Havana Heat

Let’s check out a steamy and fantastically animated video promoting “Good Books“, created by The Mill, London in conjunction with String Theory, New Zealand.

All the time and effort that went into creating this spot was generously donated as Good Books gives all of its retail profits to Oxfam to help fight against poverty and social injustice.

There are no mark-ups and the delivery is free worldwide. An interesting concept to be sure, and kudos to The Mill and String Theory for getting behind this.

Feels Good Inside

Chances are that you may have seen this already, but I don’t really care. Because I love it. And this is my blog. Not yours. I need to post it, so it becomes part of my archives.

Created by Saatchi & Saatchi, New Zealand, this spot (called ‘Feels Good Inside’…) stars a ridiculously fluffy cat who falls in love with his owner’s new Toyota Corolla. And this cat will do absolutely anything to take a ride in the new car. Anything.
