Happy Friday. Check out this 3 min animated short commercial for Absolut Vodka by Sid Lee, Amsterdam.

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.
I’m still not 100% back to normal after a quick weekend getaway down to San Francisco. I can’t seem to get back into my regular sleep pattern. So when I saw today’s ad for Tempur-Pedic beds, I knew it was perfect.
This funny little spot was created by Carmichael Lynch – and I bet a lot of busy moms will relate.
Despite what Jaime Lee Curtis might tell you, yogurt is not just for ladies. Enter “Powerful Yogurt” in a ‘man sized package’. These commercials look like the unwanted love-child from a drunken three-way between the Old Spice, Orbitz and AXE Body Deodorant ads.
Created by The Vidal Project, these spots are desperately trying to claw their way into the “wow! that was so bizarre it was amazing!” category. Sadly, they missed the mark.
I’ve selected today’s video because it is from the Cherkashin meat factory.
Meat factory. Such a generic, yet mysterious term.
Anyhow, the ad is from Russia, and it’s called “Thanks Advertising”. It shows people getting up and sprinting to the refrigerator during a commercial break, but in super slow motion. Great work by Voskhod, Yekaterinburg.
This delightful animated short video is all about the joys of counting. But shit gets real pretty quick. Described by the creator as intended to “teach children about arithmetic and disappointment”, this video may be shocking to some. Let’s have a listen, shall we?
The song was written by Adam Buxton, directed by Cyriak Harris and illustrated by Sarah Brown.
This movie is adorable. The style is fantastic, and the storyline – although bizarre – somehow works. The interesting thing is that this seven-minute movie contains no dialogue. But you don’t really notice. Enjoy.
