Car ads II

November 26, 2007

I´m fascinated. There seems to be a secret advertising war going on among car ad makers that i was previously unaware of.
The first time i noticed it were the hilarious “Congratulations…” ads from various car-makers.
And now this. I wonder if there is more.

Volkswagen started it off with this.

Which “inspired” Nissan to this.

Cannes Lions 2007

To celebrate Inga´s and my trip to the Night of the Lions in Düsseldorf, where the winners of this years Cannes Lions Awards are honored; here is a list of some of our favourites (in no particular order).

The commercials “The Wind” and “Evolution” can be found under the advertising category in earlier posts. All the following links go to YouTube. So let´s start with…

Apple´s funny Get a mac commercials.

For Amnesty international the moving Bullet and Signature spots.

Similar topics and equally amusing. Volkswagen´s Horror Movie and Smart car´s Backseat. The amazing thing of the Smart commercial. All scenes were filmed especially for this spot with employees, their friends and families acting as the characters.

The poetic Breathe in, Breathe out for Greenpeace.

Shown at the Superbowl for BudLite, the commercial He has a BudLite. From a guy point of view totally understandable i suppose.

For Shera Ceiling Board the truely tragic Shakespearian Gecko.

For Happy Dent the funny and vivid Happy Dent Palace.

And last but not least the hilarious The Breakup by Microsoft. It was shown at the Night of Lions as an opening for the sponsor of the Cyber Lions.
