Samsung Ostrich: Do What You Can’t

Thursday, December 28, 2017


For me, this was perhaps the best TVC of 2017. Samsung’s Ostrich. An icon of their #DoWhatYouCan’t campaign, plus the fact it won multiple Cannes Lions, this TVC made a dramatic twist in showcasing how VR can transport you to other worlds in an instant, in a seemingly realistic way. With this film, Samsung took [...]

AUDI: The “Duel” Presidential Debate Ad

Wednesday, September 28, 2016


So the Presidential Debate is the new Superbowl. With Audi setting the standard for an epic, unbelievable ad for the new RS7. Perfectly presented in reverse, you have no idea where the story is going, or why they are “Dueling” until the very end, of course, aligned to the Presidential Debate it makes so much [...]

IBM Watson: Robot Support Groups

Sunday, February 28, 2016


Introducing IBM Watson. Incase you haven’t heard, Watson is a cognitive system that’s ushering in the new era of cognitive business. Serious stuff, although, this ad isn’t… Featuring a group of battered science fiction bots speaking about trying to take over the world and their dislike for working with humans. Unlike them, Watson works with [...]

It’s called “Dear Brother” and it’s a pure spec ad from two students; Daniel Titz and Dorian Lebherz, studying at the Film Academy of Baden-Württemberg. And they’ve outdone themselves… This haunting Johnnie Walker spec ad explores the “Your Brothers Keeper” concept in a highly emotional state, delivering perhaps once of the most outstanding lines of [...]

Toyota: Fueled by the Future Ad

Thursday, October 22, 2015


Well, the question was who would be making Back To The Future Ads, and it looks like Toyota might have come out on top, getting Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd (Marty McFly and Doc Brown) on board to launch the new Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel car. The full-length 5 minute version pays homage to [...]

Subaru EyeSight: Minicar Music Player Demo

Sunday, January 6, 2013

1 Comment

Part ad. Part installation. Part awesome. This very cool feature demo from Subaru for their ‘EyeSight’ technology (which is basically a collision avoidance system powered by tiny depth sensitive cameras) where they’ve fitted a whole host of mini electric cars with the technology, along with weird but wonderful trigger sounds, and watched the scenario play [...]

Samsung Vs Apple: The NextBigThing Ad

Saturday, November 26, 2011


It’s Saturday, so I thought I’d post up something a little fun for the weekend, the NextBigThing ad. It’s the Samsung Galaxy S II taking it to stereotypical Apple fans, playing on all the disappointments of the iPhone 4s launch. What I really love about this, is that Samsung has been brave enough to have [...]

AT&T “You Will” ads from 1993

Monday, September 21, 2009


How many movies from the 80′s and 90′s depicting the not-so-distant future (now) got it right? Flying cars, underwater cities, three course meals in pill form? Check out these ads made by AT&T from 1993. Just about every futuristic situation they show is common place today (except maybe for the BladeRunner-esque lighting). What visions of the [...]

Heineken Walk In Fridge

Thursday, January 1, 2009


Heineken is a pretty good beer, but I think this ad is even better and probably one of the best they’ve ever made (certainly the best over the last few years). They have taken the epitome of any well-to-do woman’s house and hijacked it into a mans greatest triumph! I couldn’t find a related website for this exact [...]
