A review of 10 interesting ads 2013 has provided us with so far.
10. Whiskas Big Cat, Small Cat campaign
9. Ram Trucks Super Bowl Commercial: The Farmer
Striking still imagery and sentiment.
8. Internet Explorer
Children of the 90s will appreciate this, even if they are a Chrome groupie.
7. Guitar Player Magazine’s Nothing goes right when music goes wrong print ads
Making fun of teen pop sensations never gets old. They have another one that compares 1985 music and fashion trends.
6. Nate Walsh’s Tanry on Craigslist
In his own words, he created an ad with the “What would a drunken, profane second-grader do?” to sell his 14-year-old, beat up Camry.
5. Lego print advertising
From going beyond reality on Mars to kids taking apart technology, Lego goes a step further and positions themselves as metaphoric building blocks as well.
4. Pepsi Max’s Test Drive with Jeff Gordon
You be the judge of whether you think the car salesman is reality or an actor. Either way, it’s fun to watch.
3. Dove Real Beauty Sketches
This online ad for Dove racked up more than 35 million views on YouTube in two weeks.
2. Oreo: You Can Still Dunk in the Dark
This real-time tweet campaign during the Super Bowl power outage was fun and one of the best examples of how real-time, Agile marketing can be effective. If you were following the Twitter feed that night, you probably remember this better than 90% of the actual paid commercials.
1. AT&T It’s Not Complicated commercials
Modern take on Bill Cosby’s Kid’s Say the Darndest Things.
