THE BEST Ads

Bad Jobs Print Ads

Bad Jobs Print Ads

German job hunting site jobsintown.de created ads that make it look like there’s actually someone inside these machines doing all the work. The caption says, “Life’s too short for the wrong job.”

University of Lincoln Ad

University of Lincoln Ad

If you’re considering colleges for next fall, you might move the University of Lincoln to the top of the list after you see this video. The powers that be actually banned this promotional ad – big mistake.

Oh, you clever BBC: “When you take a class-ridden society with no ability to address it’s emotions and let it simmer for a thousand years you frankly have the perfect recipe for drama.”

Granny Loves Her Volkswagen

Granny Loves Her Volkswagen

This amusing Dutch Volkswagen Golf ad shows us the truth about buying a car from a little old lady; she looks like she only drove her car to church on Sunday – and then at the Nürburgring on Monday.

Unlogo

Unlogo

Unlogo uses video filtering software to detect and replace brand logos. The software is open source, so it can be tweaked for other purposes. Perhaps to obscure adult-only footage? Or video bombs.

Autumn(atic) Calendar

Created as a promotional gimmick for STIHL leaf blowers, Euro RSCG Dusseldorf built this wall calendar that automatically sheds each day by dropping its pages to the ground like falling leaves.

Bowling Ball Avalanche

Bowling Ball Avalanche

A couple of years back, Sony had an awesome Bravia commercial with a ton of bouncy balls rolling down a hill. Nissan pays tribute with a slightly more destructive variant – bowling balls.

Vintage Social Website Ads

Vintage Social Website Ads

Rodolfo Sampaio, Marco Martins and Adriano Matos of Brazil-based Moma Propaganda ad agency created these retro-style ads for YouTube, Skype, Twitter and Facebook for Maximidia 2010.

Tattooed LEGO Minifigs

Tattooed LEGO Minifigs

These tough-ass minifigs were inked using ballpoint pens. Barcelona-based Grey agency made these pictures for a series of Pilot pen advertisements. We wonder if LEGO would approve of these.

HP: Hit Print

HP: Hit Print

This clever ad for HP Photosmart printers was shot by printing out each frame of its animation in real time. We’re amazed they didn’t jam or run out of ink. Nothing like a little movie magic.

Disney Star Wars Ads

Disney Star Wars Ads

These advertisements for Disney’s Star Wars Weekends at their Hollywood Studios theme park are truly inspired. Our favorite? Yoda carving Mickey Mouse hedges with his lightsaber.

Star Wars Google Ad

Star Wars Google Ad

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen a few of those sentimental Google search ads on TV. College Humor’s parody is all about looking for love in the Star Wars universe.

Funny: Old Spice Apple Ad

Funny: Old Spice Apple Ad

We admit Neo-Fight.tv’s Apple Ad doesn’t come close to beating the original Old Spice Ad; still, it’s a refreshing new scent compared to Apple’s somewhat stale Get A Mac spots.

Pedigree: Catch

Pedigree: Catch

Guaranteed to leave dogs (and their owners) with wagging tails, Pedigree: Catch shows dogs catching treats in super-slow motion; it was shot using a Phantom camera at 1,000 fps.

Making of Old Spice’s TV Ad

Making of Old Spice’s TV Ad

It was our favorite Superbowl ad, but something always smelled fishy about Old Spice’s shower-boat-horse; Leo Laporte interviews the creators to learn how they did it. Thanks, everyone!

YouTube: Super Bowl Ads

YouTube: Super Bowl Ads

Don’t worry about taking a bathroom timeout this year; YouTube will be airing Super Bowl ads immediately after they run on TV via their Ad Blitz channel so you can vote on the best ones.

66 Get A Mac Ads

Ad: Do Knot Forget

Ad: Do Knot Forget

This Do Knot Forget ad from Ford Germany is pure viral bait, but we’ll bite: a few are debatable, but it’s a surprisingly helpful guide to famous knots using iPod earbuds and charging cables.

Freakiest TV Ads of 2009

Adweek’s AdFreak names the Top 30 Freakiest Commericals of 2009; included are Quique the Head and the Palm Pre, but by far the creepiest and most shocking are the PSAs.

Video: Chrome Features

Video: Chrome Features

If you liked the quirky Google Japan ad, this Chrome Features video by Google UK is a not only a rundown of the browser’s abilities, but an exercise in Rube Goldbergian creativity.

Toshiba Space Chair

Toshiba Space Chair

That’s one giant creak for mankind: Toshiba has sent a biodegradable Space Chair up 98,268 feet using balloons and 4 GPS systems; it was filmed using Toshiba IK-HR1S cameras.

Epic Mobile Home Ad

Epic Mobile Home Ad

Robert Lee wants to sell you a mobile home, but he’d be equally at home kicking your ass: this TV ad is not only epically cool, but epically real; it’s directed by Rhett & Link. Thanks, Chris!

Mito x Space Invaders

Mito x Space Invaders

Alfa Romeo’s Mito supermini almost looks too cute to play defender, at least until it opens a can of whoop ass on gas pumps in this Space Invaders TV ad; it’s directed by Spy Films.

Where Tetris Comes From

Where Tetris Comes From

It sounds like the title to a cheesy sex-ed film, but Where Tetris Comes From is a catchy little ad complete with cell-shaded graphics for South Korean gaming network Naver/NHN.
