LYNY ANARCHY: invisible advertisement.

In this stunt, the ‘live’ advertisements can only be seen when the participants put on sunglasses. To everyone else walking by, it seems like nothing.

Pretty cool idea.

BE CONFIDENT: cars.com commercial.

So this commercial is both humorous and annoying at the same time. The little head kind of freaks me out. Overall I enjoyed it though. Probably one of the more talked about commercials from the Super Bowl.

UPDATED RETRO HANES AD: old style with updated perspective.

Today I set out to revitalize an old advertisement with current information. I wanted to keep the style and feel to the ad almost identical but instead use more current images, ideology, and references.

The Print Ad with the lady in wearing glasses is the original ad as you can tell. It went to print in magazines such as LIFE in 1965.

The other ad is my current rendition of the ad.

Let me know your thoughts.

AIRBAG AD: feel safe when you are reading about the car, and driving it.

Some pretty cool stuff from Loducca Agency out of Brazil.

POSSIBLY RACIST MICHIGAN SENATE SUPER BOWL AD: fail.

This aired during the Super Bowl to residents of Michigan. It seems pretty off. At the very least it was very politically incorrect. And if the ad wasn’t then his explanation was. 

"You have a Chinese girl speaking English — I want to hit on the education system, essentially. The fact that a Chinese girl is speaking English is a testament to how they can compete with us, when an American boy of the same age speaking Mandarin is absolutely insane, or unthinkable right now," Hoekstra spokesperson Paul Ciaramitaro told POLITICO. “It exhibits another way in which China is competing with us globally.”

10th BEST COMMERCIAL OF 2011: Sharks Love Peanut Butter.

The number 10 spot of the countdown goes to Snickers for their Peanut Butter Squares commercials. I have to hand it to them… the idea of a shark focus group for eating humans was some funny shit.

THAI PANTENE COMMERCIAL: You can shine.

This is a few years old but it is still great. It is an extended commercial for Pantene from Thailand.

I think its brilliant. It could be good just simply as a short film itself. I guess that is what makes it great.

AD PLACEMENT FAIL: Fathers Day Edition

I think the horrible placement of ads speaks for itself…

How did an editor not catch that?

HEINEKEN DRINKING CHART AD: (So, can I buy you a drink?):

Here is an ad that was created by some students a couple years back at Miami Ad School.

Pretty entertaining copy. Good work.
