Yes, it’s an advertisement.  Yes, it’s fun.  Yes, it’s under a minute long.  Enjoy it, then make a Dr.’s appointment.  Or don’t it’s a free country.

CrossFIRE!!!

This post has no content except to show this awesome music video to the awesome marble game from long ago Crossfire! and the song of it’s commercial.  I was going to say it’s a 1990s game, but Wikipedia says it came out in 1971.  Ok wikipedia, how could you ever be wrong?

Here’s the commercial I’m talking about.  Relive your childhood:

The Most Interesting Man in The World

Is about to embark on a one way trip to Mars.  Yes my friends, Dos Equis is retiring The Most Interesting Man in the World.  But not without a bang.  They’re going to send him off to Mars, and as always, he’s interesting, he has no regrets because he doesn’t know what regret feels like.

Here’s the first video in the sendoff campaign:

One of the real stories is of the actor that plays him, Jonathan  Goldsmith.  Goldsmith basically faked his way through Hollywood, but being in the Dos Equis commercials was his big break.  NPR has an article about him, it’s worth a read, you’ll finish it quick, trust me.

Hand made Stop Motion Paper Ad

The above ad is a hand made, drawn, and hand photographed film that was made to show the history of Honda, and the huge number of products that they made over the years.  It’s a pretty impressive video, it’s 2 minutes long, and needs to be viewed in it’s entirety, so I bet it doesn’t get as much air time as other shorter clips would.  But it’s impressive, and fun.  Stop motion is cool, I tried making one way back when.  It didn’t come out horrible, but it took way more time then I anticipated, and it was only using like pipe-cleaners.  So I can fully believe that this shoot took 4 months to make.

Here’s a behind the scenes look at how this ad was made over the course of 4 months:

Russian Beer

http://youtu.be/_6XI8i_69xA

I like David Duchovny, he’s a good actor, but unfortunately, will always be Fox Mulder to me.  Oh well, he recently did an ad for a Russian Beer company, Sibirskaya Korona, which is an Anheuser0Busch InBev brewed beer.

Say what you want about the timing of the piece, and the pro-Russian themes in it, I for one think it’s a pretty great commercial that shows a pretty great country, (and it should be known that I dislike all things communist, and many of the things in that video are famous because of Communism).

Commercials

I don’t often praise commercials, but every so often a campaign comes along that is just excellent.  I’m talking about the Cadillac ELR Poolside ad.

http://youtu.be/qGJSI48gkFc

It’s not a new ad, in fact it’s been airing since The Olympics, but it’s getting new vigor of late due to a new Ford Ad that parodies that one:

I don’t know about you, but the Ford one just sucks.  The Cadillac ad appeals to me, sure I may not be able to afford a Cadillac, but it screams American.  The Ford ad, that reminds me of some third world country.

  • Cadillac – We landed on the moon
  • Ford – We collect shit to make dirt

I’ll give the Ford ad some slack for using someone who clearly cannot act and gave a very wooden performance.  But that doesn’t help that she just stands out from the everything she’s trying to do.  She looks too clean to be collecting shit to make dirt.  I get that they wanted to use the actual founder, Pashon Murray of Detroit Dirt, but she looks so out of place that it detracts from the entire ad.

People have been saying that Cadillac’s ad, which has  Neal McDonough talking to us, is very rich-centric.  I disagree.  He’s showing the hard work of The American Dream. (Not to say that Murry isn’t also, but she doesn’t portray it as well as McDonough does).  Honestly, as a red blooded American, there is nothing not to like about the Cadillac ad.  You’d have to be a damned commie not to get a smile on your face when you watch it.  And that’s where I’ll end this post.

The Movie Announcers

Sure, there’s about 100 pixels to share between these 5 movie announcers, but that’s not the point.  The point is watching/listening to this video, and seeing/hearing cinema history at the same time.  Most of those people I bet you’ve never seen before, but you’ve heard every single viagra for sale one of them.

Not since GEICO’s commercial with Don LaFontaine, have I been so surprised.

Also, Don LaFontaine looks way better bald i think.  Also also, the Disney guy is so out of place there.

The Schticky

When I first saw that I didn’t believe it.  I mean, can you believe it?  Watch it again.  There are half a dozen blatant sexual innuendos given.  And if you watch closely, he repeats things said durring the Slap Chop video.  But, alas, the website works, and it looks like you can actually buy the product. (But someone else who’s not me will have to verify that)

I’m at a loss for words, so Instead here’s one of Vince’s best videos:

The Pocket Chair!

This guy is no Billy Mays, or Vince Offer, in fact, I don’t really like him too much at all, but this line makes it:

Load up a drawer for a Pocket Chair Party!!!!!1!!11

That’s all you need to know about that video in case you didn’t watch it.

Pointlessly Expensive Cartoon

Or car commercial, but car commercials are already pointless, so that title would have been redundant and recursive.

I applaud them for their creativity, and for doing it all in the real world, without a green screen.  It did take them a long time to set it all up, and get the right speed, but the final product is a very nice commercial.
