Hipster Hijack

It’s sunny out. I gotta go drink wine on a patio.

Speaking of booze, here’s a funny spot for Garagista beer in South Africa.

What came first? The chicken or the licken’?

There’s this restaurant in South Africa called Chicken Licken. And their advertisements are pretty funny thanks to director, Trevor Clarence and Net#work BBDO. (Yes. That is a hashtag in the middle of their name. Don’t get me started.)

Sensational

I love this ad for Stimorol Sensations gum. Everything about it is amazing – the voice over, the actor, the parrot playing a saxophone while sitting on the saxophone being played by the main actor… how can you not love this?

Well done Ogilvy, South Africa.

Boys Will Be Boys

School’s back in session, and soon little boys will be climbing to the top of the jungle-gym and jumping off swing sets to prove their manliness to their peers.

Boys will be boys, no matter the age.

1st For Women, an insurance company that caters exclusively to the needs of South African women, has launched a new ad campaign based on the this idea.  The campaign is called Risky Men and it illustrates just some of the reasons why the company only insures women.

A great job by Black River FC, Johannesburg.

Honda Illustrates Their Point

Now it’s time for something I hope you’ll really like!

I am loving this animated spot for Honda by DDB South Africa with music by The Pete Box. The ad was uploaded just over two months ago, so it’s not new new. But I had to share because the concept and execution are flawless. The illustration sucked me in. I couldn’t look away. Gorgeous.

Riding Dirty

Both my parents have motorcycle licenses. When I was a kid, we used to take long road trips with their bikes. In fact, I’m surprised I’m still alive considering all the times I fell asleep on the back of the Gold Wing. Motorcycle culture isn’t something that is lost on me, but I prefer to experience it through the eyes of HBO and the Sons of Anarchy. 

Nonetheless, the following Volkswagen commercial made me laugh out loud, and that’s why I’m sharing it. This is the Volkswagen Easy Riders campaign, created at Ogilvy, Cape Town.

This is a Daddy Bike. And basically the motorhome of motorcycles.

Three’s Company: The Golden Years

You certainly would not want to walk in on this. Check out the funny, yet frightening advert for “Vital” libido enhancer by DraftFCB, South Africa.

Burning Desire

I’ve returned from the forest, refreshed and rejuvenated! It turned out to be more of a “glamping” trip (glamour camping) than a camping trip. All of my clothes (tutu’s, legwarmers, etc) and bedding stink of campfire, so I’ve got some laundry to do. The forest was not very dry, which was nice, and there were no fire restrictions (thank God, because it got super arctic up in there when the sun went down).

On the topic of forests and fires, here are today’s ad picks. A print and poster campaign for the Volunteer Wildlife Services in South Africa reminding people that wildfires burn more than just trees, created by Saatchi & Saatchi, Cape Town.
