Very funny, fact-based work by a Danish travel company “Do It For Denmark”.

Nice promotion ties into it too.

I’ve posted great work from AMV BBDO for Doritos previously (loved Guitar Hero and Flicko), but this is very clever too, creating a new medium, or at least using one in a unique way.

 

Feel For The Signs

Talking about Breast Cancer isn’t easy in Dubai.

I really neat idea from JWT Dubai to overcome the stigma.

We try to be agency neutral in sharing work, but this is a neat idea for a very worthy cause.

 

 

Stephen Hawking Gives His Voice …

… to Save The Children’s Syrian appeal.

 

Powerful work from adam&eveDDB London.

 

A few years back, he did a great VO for a BT (British Telecom) commercial “Keep Talking”. The video quality below isn’t great, but well worth a watch if you haven’t seen it before.

 

 

 

 

Generic Advertising

Funny the number of times I saw this yesterday on Facebook, with friends (in the ad. business) and clients sharing it.

It looks so familiar, just lacks a brand name and a claim.

What an indictment of doing “the same”, “expecting the same”, “demanding the same”.

Lovely Spot For Would Be Heroes

By Iain White

This made me smile.

No offers.

No tech talk.

Just a reminder of how simple it is to make a difference to someone’s life and ultimately your own.

Hope we see more executions in this campaign.

Simple idea, well-executed.

 

 

Another Cloud

But one with a difference and highly relevant when you are “Tasting The Rainbow”.

More, on brand, and funny work from Skittles.

Its great how this campaign is always kept fresh.

Hat’s off to the client and agency.

The Heart Just Wants To Feel …

By Iain White
March 25th, 2014

And with two billion plus heartbeats each (in a lifetime), you should feel every one of them, as Google reminds us.

As with most of the more proclaimed work these days, its a long format, but did it get your heart beating?

I love a lot of the scenes, and love the idea, but not sure my heart was beating any faster watching it. Maybe the point was don’t watch it, go out and do something. Moving.

 

Need Some Love?

What a terrific spot from BBH London.

Really quite confrontational and emotionally disturbing, and then beautifully resolved.

I really miss my lovely … :(

 

 

 

 

In case you miss the Canadian Film Fest …

By Iain White
March 18th, 2014

Well, it does start tomorrow, 20th March ’14 in Toronto (and runs till the 22nd).

A sweet spot (short-film?) from JWT Toronto promoting the event.

If it wasn’t so cold, am sure a lot more folks would like to be proudly Canadian too.
