I’m not a fan of football or the Superbowl or most Superbowl ads, but I have to admit that Mini Darth stole my heart. This was my favorite ad for this year by far. If you have been living under a rock and haven’t seen it: Enjoy.
As great as it is, it’s still second place to my favorite ad from last year.
Which one was your favorite ad this year?
This is the only Super Bowl ad I liked, and I loved it.
It almost made me want a Kindle until I remembered this music video.
Maybe I’m being a bit crazy, but they’re a bit too similar. One is obviously higher budget than the other one, but I believe that in this case there’s beauty in simplicity.
Remember how I was obsessed with an ad and decided to have a little fun with it?
Well, someone decided to one up me, but they decided to have A LOT of fun with it.
Isaac, a friend from London who likes videos and pictures (a little too much if you ask me), decided to prove himself worthy of big projects and show his talent.
He decided to give up a looooot of his time to pay homage to the ad in a way more labor intensive way.
I’m impressed (and kind of jealous!)
Amazing work Isaac.
Expenseasteak.com is a genius micro site for Maloney & Porcelli’s a NYC steakhouse that has found an interesting way to get you to eat there: make the company pay for it.
This stunt from NYC agency Walrus goes beyond digital marketing in a page that’s both clever and charming. You simply have to enter the total of your Maloney & Porcelli’s bill and it will give you a pdf with a series of realistic looking receipts that add up to the exact amount you spent.
What better way to break through the mold then to have a humorous approach to the recession.
It’s advertising at it’s best, but I wonder if anyone has dared to use the fake receipts, especially with the amount of buzz the web page has gotten.
Simple product. Great ad.
I guess I’m never going to be allowed to complain to myself about having a dull client when BBDO México made this visually intriguing ad about a simple lined notebook. I love it.
The tagline says : All good ideas start with paper. I agree.
Those who know me well know that I usually make fun of these things, but I couldn’t help it. I’m intrigued (and slightly obsessed) with this new Budweiser ad:
and this is what hapenned when I put together a couple of friends, a ton of time, and some beer.
Yes, that’s me and of course you’re allowed to laugh.
Just wanted to share this new Volkswagen advert from DDB London. It made me smile. I think positive thinking makes all the difference.
I won’t lie. Tweeting, like blogging, makes me feel important. I like it when I get many clicks on my blog or when i get a new follower. I like knowing that someone is interested in what I’m saying. (It might sound egotistical, but I’m jsut saying what others aren’t). Everyone that’s on Twitter follows and likes being followed, but how far would you go to get new followers?
Tweeters are now able to buy more followers.
uSocial, a social media marketing company based in Australia, has launched a paid service to track down followers for Twitter users. Followers can be bought in blocks of 1,000 for about £50.
The company finds potential followers by searching through Twitter to discover areas of common interest to match people more closely. uSocial then send these potential followers a message, alerting them that there is someone on Twitter they might want to follow. The potential follower then decides whether or not to follow that person.
Though amazing for brands it defies the subtlty of social media. People will be suggested who to follow and not choose by themselves. Eventually, they may get overwhelmed and annoyed by all the ‘suggestions.’
As a marketer, I see the appeal of getting your word out to thousands, especially at 50p per person. But I would rather have a few followers that sought me out and actually follow what i say then many that aren’t that engaged.
Personally, I’d hate emails telling me who to follow. I like the suggestions that come from friends, but I’d find these oddly invasive.
