McDonalds Newspaper Ad

This advertisement is close to the same concept as the Stihl newspaper advertisement I posted a while back. I think the colors on this page are a good idea, however the actual news stories themselves are a poor match to the message of the ad at least in my opinion.

Kit Kat Bench

Gimme a Break, Gimme a Break! I like this advertisement for a Kit Kat bar much better than their current television ad campaign. My one concern would be its outdoor enviroment. One passing pigeon and it would lose a great deal of its appeal. Perhaps it would be better in an indoor environment such as a mall?

Free Air Guitar

We know how big of a fan I am of viral advertising. Good ideas do not have to have big budgets. Just take a look at the radio advertisement below!

Porsche Heritage Commercial

I am somewhat on the fence on whether or not this would qualify as a truly great commercial. There are elements I like. It does tell a story, like the AT&T commercial I liked. It is slightly long, for a television commercial, and it could probably be shorter. I would also love for the story to have a bit of a better ending, though this commercial is certainly a realistic scenario.

I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the following Porsche Commercial.

Brrrr... Snowy Visa Commercials

It's a cold and snowy day here in West Tennessee, so I guess it has me in the mood to enjoy commercials for the Upcoming Winter Olympics. This Visa commercial is short; it is only a thirty second spot. Visa has an entire youtube channel full of their commercials for the Winter Olympics. Out of the commercials, this one is not as closely related to the actual brand and message of the campaign. However, when you combine it with the rest of the series, the campaign as a whole packs a big punch.
