French Girls

Renault’s latest online offering has already accomplished  viral success. Their simple test-drive video has already clocked up over 2.5 million views in under a week.

 

‘What did they do?’ I hear you cry. Jump from space? Make a pony dance? Gangnam Style???

No…. They made French girls dance in their underwear. #Winning

They also did a more female friendly version. Let me know what it’s like.
Cheers.

Silly Stufff

The latest ad for mobile Network Three is a return to the slightly surreal, this time held together with the line ‘Silly stuff. It matters‘.

Apparently 45% of mobile sharing is simply to make people smile. With this in mind the advertising agency, Wieden & Kennedy, have modled Three’s new campaign around celebrating the silliness of the internet. So seen as dancing and animals are always hot to trot (so to speak) why not start with a dancing pony?

However, with horse being hot on the menu, it wasn’t long before someone served up an alternative:

Thank you The Poke for creating this and @OllyBoden for sharing it with me, apologies if this horse is not to your taste.

 

 

 

Beer Chase

From the beer that brought us my favourite ad EVER (Don’t worry, I’ve included it at the bottom)… comes the latest in comedy commercial capers from Carlton Draught. Their recent instalment follows some post heist bandits as they attempt a getaway from the local law enforcement.  What separates this from any other classic chase scene is this… they don’t want to spill their precious Carlton Draught, so they make their escape on foot with the police in toe (and on toe). Don’t worry my Blues Brothers, it still contains all the classic car chase clichés, making this commercial… hilarious!

Beer Chase:

This practically perfect 80’s pastiche was created by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. Good work boys! And here is another ‘big ad’ from that refreshing bar beverage that is… ‘Made from Beer’.

Epic Advertising

Here are some awesome ads of late that I have loved.

Guardian; Three Little Pigs

This hit our screens a couple of weeks ago and it still makes me sit up every time I hear “Little pig, little pig let us in”. As far as advertising goes, the message is clear and the ad is entertaining and raises my opinion of an already very high profile brand. Amazing work.


AGENCY: BBH
CLIENT:  Guardian
CREATIVES: Matt Fitch & Mark Lewis

 

HSBC: Serious Play

Another awesomely epic advertisement, this time from JWT as they tackle (see what I did there) the rugby 7s. I’m personally a big fan of dressing up so this ad had me hooked the moment I saw those freaking excellent toy soldier costumes, but mix in the classic ‘epic sports battle in a public space’ formula (see ’98 Nike Airport ad for another excellent example) and you’ve got a big thumbs up from me.


AGENCY: JWT London
CLIENT: HSBC

 

Sony Xperia “Made by Imagination”

Although I’m not the biggest Wes Anderson fan, in fact I can’t think of a movie he’s made that hasn’t made me fall asleep or cut myself, but the idea of brining kids irrepressible imagination to life is surely something even Wes can’t make less exciting than watching a turd go crispy.

I though I’d squeeze in a final entry from DraftFCB Beunos Aires… it’s for KY Jelly .

Audi QUATTRO!!!!

Car ads are famously vacuous. Always trying hard to execute nothing but a feeling, sentiment or another unashamed display of ‘car porn’. But the latest offering from Audi does more than this, it offers an idea and more than that… It does it well.

Thank you @RichlyEvocative for showing me the light, the unmistakable light.

Other car manufacturers, please learn from this.
