A Bag’s Eye View

A Bag’s Eye View

Take a flight from the point of view of your bag. They left out the part where the baggage handlers toss your luggage and rifle through it for goodies. What do you expect from an ad shot for Delta?

Russian Burger King

Russian Burger King

Just when we thought Korea had the weirdest commercials for the BK Lounge, Russia has to try and outdo them with sheer excess. Though the in-store tattoos might not pass health code.

The Beauty of One Second

The Beauty of One Second

An assemblage of one second clips, capturing the wonders of the world and life in general. Part of a short-film competition to promote Montblanc’s chronographs. We love it when advertising is art.

Last Dictator Standing

Last Dictator Standing

Chicken x politics: Dean Blumberg’s ad for South African restaurant chain Nando’s parodies the remaining dictators left in the world; it entertains and leaves you thinking too. (Thanks Ange!)

Specsavers Ad

Specsavers Ad

Is that a carrot in the sauna, or do you just need glasses? This jocular ad for UK optical company Specsavers features Gordon Ramsay and a bumbling gent who could really use an eye exam.

Fiat 500 Abarth: Seduction

Fiat 500 Abarth: Seduction

This somewhat racy but rather amusing ad from Fiat showcases their new 500 Abarth, which is apparently so seductive you may lose track of your wits. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. (Thanks Nick!)

ASICS Marathon Ad

ASICS Marathon Ad

ASICS installed a video wall in the Columbus Circle subway station and challenged passersby to race against top U.S. marathoner Ryan Hall for just 60 feet. What do you think happened? (Thanks Juan!)

Go Beyond the Cover

Go Beyond the Cover

We knew there was makeup strong enough to cover up tattoos; this cool vid shows us that it’s Dermablend, and what Zombie Boy (aka Rick Genest) looks like without his ink. (Thanks Mario!)

Müller: Wünderful Stuff

Müller: Wünderful Stuff

Yet another commercial filled with seemingly random, yet awesome stuff – this time ranging from K.I.T.T. to Mr. Men to Muttley, to an army of unicorns all coming together to sell us… yogurt?

Sony PS3 Ad: Michael

Sony PS3 Ad: Michael

An all-star cast of PS3 game characters gather together for a few drinks and raise a glass to “Michael”, the kid who controls them all on their adventures in Sony’s cool ad. (Thanks, Everyone!)

Boardwalk Empire Subway Train

Boardwalk Empire Subway Train

To promote the 2nd season of Boardwalk Empire, HBO is running an authentic 1920s train in the 2/3 line of the New York City subway this September. This train’s first run was way back in 1917.

Tamiya Conspiracy Kits

Tamiya Conspiracy Kits

The ever-creative ad agency Ogilvy presented several conspiracy theories as plastic model kits in their ad campaign for model hobby manufacturer Tamiya. Hit the link for the full sized pics.

Levi’s: Now is Our Time

Levi’s: Now is Our Time

Levi’s Europe let Portugese street artist Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils, be the creative mind behind their Now is our TIME! campaign launch in Berlin. Looks like he had some pretty explosive ideas.

Hot Wheels Billboards

Hot Wheels Billboards

The ad team at Ogilvy & Mather recently put up these awesome billboards for Hot Wheels, including a giant loop (car not included), and a pair of giant kids who turn a real road into a giant plaything.

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.

The Dinner (Commercial)

The Dinner (Commercial)

Women of TA, this one’s for you: Ben Gregor’s amusing ad for Pfister furniture starts off with a classic ladies fantasy and ends rather unfortunately (and realistically). Guys: you’ll think it’s funny too.

BBC America Commercial

BBC America Commercial

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

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.

MINI Countryman: Flow

MINI Countryman: Flow

This commercial for MINI’s new sportster blew our minds with its incredible CG effects, seamlessly placing dozens of MINIs in situations which are physically impossible. Behind the scenes here.

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.

Awesome Outdoor Ads

Awesome Outdoor Ads

The 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival showcased some of the funniest, most creative and thought-provoking ads. Here are some of the best ads featured in the festival.

London Tube Time Capsule

London Tube Time Capsule

Elevator passageways at London Underground’s Notting Hill Tube Station were sealed to modernize in the 1950’s; recent work at the station has revealed a rich time capsule filled with vintage ads.

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.
