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.
This VMA promo for a Michael Jackson tribute definitely stands out from previous humor-centered VMA promos. It also stands out from other Michael Jackson magazine articles, tributes and music video marathons that flooded the medias after his death. This video has a more respectful mood yet it manages to show that the King of Pop will get an iconic tribute.
The “like not other” tagline, the things falling cityscape and the soft music makes me thing of the Bravia adverts here.
