Really? Getting three Manchester United soccer stars to endorse meatballs? This three-minute meals concept manufactured by Korean food company Ottogi features Robin Van Persie, De Gea and Januzaj in their trademark stances while mixing between scenes of meatball dishes. While performance for the club has been on the rocks lately, popularity for the club remains strong. This promotional ad is an example of continuos support, albeit it does look a bit weird.
Ahem~ “dear mainland”, Duncan/Channon USA has done some really lay back TV commercial for beer company, Kona Brewing. What we see is two chilled blokes living the life completely quite the opposite of many of us sloggers in the office. What really resonates with me is how nice these ads actually emphasise the meaning of taking a break and relaxing those fingers at work. So much in brand to what Kona Brewing wants to relate to their audience, these work shouts out the brand in subtlety.
The proliferation of hilarious pictures with pepperoni pizza was seen around the internet lately. Jonpaul Douglass, a photographer from Los Angeles got motivated to start a rather peculiar series of photography after seeing a funny pizza graffiti tag at the place where he stayed. He then began taking pictures with actual pepperoni pizzas and have them placed at random locations, objects and surroundings. Coined the humorous “Pizza In The Wild” project, the photographer took pains to hunt for the most suitable looking pizzas around, which he managed to source for at Little Caesars pizzeria at US$5 for a large pizza. Check out more from this interesting photographer by following Douglass on Instagram or check out the hashtag “#pizzainthewild”.
Don’t you just love ads that aims to bring on more laughter and less of the hard selling product driving mundane? BBDO, USA did these commercials for Snickers for their bite sized Snickers. The idea was simple. Basically, it is the why-didn’t-I-think-of-it formula, leading to a retrospective from the past. We see possible causes to why a simple idea like this wasn’t implemented. Both commercials illustrates hilarious outcomes as to why this had happen. Check them out. These days, fun-vertising simply garner a lot more attention than traditional advertising – great copy with nice visuals.
I love the Simpsons. They are fantastic. Love the way they behave and the kind of crude jokes coming from the american society. Now we have all that fused into classic Russian art. Interestingly, it can turn out to be pretty amusing yet fascinating. Students from Moscow-based art school, British Higher School of Art and Design created a collection of art pieces resembling classic Russian artwork featuring characters from the Simpsons. I love how they use the art to create humor and get people noticing the idea behind the image a little more as they relate the cast and their personalities with the art itself.
Check out these 2 commercials. They ride on the idea of “You like to bet?” and let their creativity run wild by simply creating ideas that inject not only humor but also brings on a very direct relation to humans’ urge to sometimes test the system as they bet. So if your into betting, why not just do it the legal way.
Wieden+Kennedy has once again created a series of really amazing commercials for deodorant brand, Old Spice. I wont be surprised to see humor and great amusement when I see their work. This time round, they had new faces from America’s NFL League as casts for their ads. With the idea and message of ‘Unnecessary Freshness’, they manage to pull off a series of rather odd and funny situations with the stars somewhat fantasizing themselves in. Really funny and zany.
