Subaru’s Dogs Adverts

There are two more, but I though these were the funniest. Very funny, very sweet!

“Subaru is happily embracing that last stereotype with its new “Meet the Barkleys” campaign. The four 30-second spots (and website) follow the Subaru-loving Barkley clan as they deal with everyday situations from teenage dating dramas to family road trips to a dad getting chastised for paying a little too much attention to an attractive female. You know, stuff that everyone can relate to.”

The Greatest Story – The Good Guys Christmas – Unicef Sweden

Hilarious Christmas ad! There are two more ads from this campaign, but I think this one was the best.
I can’t imagine this would be received too well in the USA!

NeverWet spray

Rust-Oleum NeverWet, available at Home Depot, is a superhydrophobic spray-on coating that repels water, mud, ice and other liquids.

Amazing! So amazing, a part of me thinks it’s a hoax….
