Advertising on a boat!

Advertising on a boat!, originally uploaded by westlingk.

I hope the picture comes out well but I am currently sitting at the beach when I saw this billboard on a boat! Pretty interesting idea but unfortunately the company failed by making the photos of their food so big that you can hardly see where the restaurant is. Oh well...pretty cool though. Back to getting some sun though!

This amusing commercial is brought to you by Quiznos, and it features the new Toasty Bullet Sandwich, as it interferes with some guy's therapy session. Almost makes me want to go grab some Quizno's!

Fosters Revisits 'How to Speak Australian' Campaign

Fosters is making their return to TV with their "How to Speak Australian" campaign. Foster's brand director, Doug Kooyman explains that their underlying reason to return to TV was because they wanted to reconnect with their target consumer as well as motivate the trade to activate the brand. Additionally, Foster's found that 15 second spots seemed to be very popular among their target consumers who are 25 to 34 year old males, but he also wanted to attract the attention of a slightly older male demographic.

The "How to Speak Australian" spot first appeared in 1984. Once the ad stopped airing, Foster's tried several other approaches to entice viewers with their brand but nothing grew close to the "How to Speak Australian" campaign. In the next few weeks we can expect to see a web site that features the revamped theme. I don't drink Fosters very often but one of my favorite bars has a great happy hour special with Fosters, so I do drink it on occasion. Has anyone seen the ads?

Dentiste "Forever Love"

I'm going to go ahead and say this is one of the strangest commercials I have ever seen haha. I would like to know who is behind this annoying spot, but what does everyone else think? Find it as annoying as I do?

Dial "Groove"

Adidas - Riquelme Paintball

Johnnie Walker "The Man Who Walked Around the World"

One of the greatest commercials I have seen in a while. The commercial, which is brought to you by BBH London, lasts a little over 5 minutes, but let me tell you right now, each minute was worth it. Robert Carlyle engages the viewer with the story behind Johnnie Walker. "The combination of bagpiper abuse, well-timed visual cues, pitch-perfect writing and music, and Carlyle's charisma keeps the mini-movie chugging right along". (AD Freak)
