Burger King creates pun storm in Media

by Claire 25/06/2009 06:02
 
Burger King have just brought out this pervy little ad to Singapore (at the moment).  The newspapers had a field say making up headlines such as "Burger King blows its advertising wad" and so on.  Enlightening.

It's not the only sex-related ad Burger King have brought out in the past.  One starred Pieras Morgan with very few clothes in an effort to smell a cologne that smells like meat.


Making you hungry?

Mortal Combat at Harvey Nichols.

by Claire 22/06/2009 05:15
Designer trendies are fighting it out in the new Harvey Nichols ads.  Think Streetfighter and Mortal Kombat and you've got the idea (although I'm a Soul Calibur fan, but they all work the same).  The ads star nicely dressed characters flying through the air at each other, powering up and ninja kicking in cause of the sale.
 
The campaign evolves from the 2007 concept used by Harvey Nichols, again by DDB agency, which saw cats in much the same poses and clothes (a personal favourite is the blazered cat with baseball bat).  Comparing the two, the feeling of repetition crops up - are the cats simply a slightly classier version of the women, or does the appearance of people make the ads more appealing?  What do you think?

Can't help but feel an interactive game would work wonders, although suspect that might bring a different audience.

This ad for Durex by the very talented superfad seems to be making its way round the blogs. What a brilliant animation, make sure to check out the site to see the outtakes (i love it when animators do this!).

Funniest Ad

by Dudley 05/12/2008 12:17

The top 10 funniest ads were named by the advertising industry today with the winner being the British advert for John West tinned salmon, check out the video below.

 
Another personal favourite of  mine that made it into the top 10 is the John Smith's advert starring Peter Kay where he is on the phone to his daughter warning her of burglars.

SKY HD

by Dudley 02/12/2008 01:23
I find the adverts that, I think, appear before the Sky HD movies amazing...and it made me think of this advert that was played in cinemas and on HD tv's when they were first released. Obvioulsy it doesn't have the same effect on a youtube video but its still pretty cool.

1984

by Dudley 01/12/2008 03:35
I can't remember where I saw this the other week but I have just been reminded of it again by the new Simpsons episode which jokes about Apple (we decided not to post it as it would cause too many problems in the mac vs pc war in the studio) but here is '1984' the advert which introduced the Macintosh personal computer for the first time.

Awesome Wii Advert

by Dudley 23/09/2008 06:03

Check out the following Wii advert. How brilliant is that?

It reminds me of this piece of flash, which I know is very old, but I still think is amazing.
