Volkswagen: Laughing Horses

I’ve discovered a gem – an ad for VW’s ‘Park Assist’ feature from their Tiguan model campaign (2016). The advert is by Grabarz & Partner (Hamburg), and proves that there’s no excuse for boring car ads!

There’s an interesting post which mentions how the ad went viral after testing it before release:

The video proved to be one of the best automotive videos ever tested, scoring significantly above average on key criteria like enjoyment, brand fit and brand appeal. As a result, Volkswagen released the video on Youtube.de where it was watched over 2 million times and uploaded by others. The video’s success prompted Volkswagen to use it on TV, and at last count the video had received over 36 million views across all platforms.

GEICO: Raccoons, C’mon Try It!

The Martin Agency has created funny TV ad for GEICO insurance:

When raccoons are rummaging through your garbage, they have to come across some nasty leftovers, even for them. And we’ll bet they’re just like rest of us when they do inevitably bite into the gross remnants from last Wednesday’s dinner; they can’t help but get their raccoon friends to try it.

The TV ad is totally overshadowed by the hilarious YouTube spots, showing a comical series of videos called Raccookin’, where a monotone raccoon gives a YouTube cooking tutorial using a gross concoction of ingredients found in bins.

Parody of Dove’s new campaign

I posted about Dove’s sketches campaign, and a parody has been created!

“Ogilvy Brazil’s “Real Beauty Sketches” campaign for Dove took the Internet by storm this week with its clever use of a forensics artist to show women that they’re really more beautiful than they think. What would happen if you tried the same experiment on men? Check out the brilliant parody below from New Feelings Time Comedy. Let’s just say guys get the opposite results—but end up getting a little weepy just the same. “Men. You’re less beautiful than you think.” And you ain’t no movie stars.”

Kid President meets the President of the United States of America

Cute video of the day!

“After previously only speaking via can and string, Kid President and President Barack Obama finally meet face to face. The two met in the Oval Office to discuss how kids and grown-ups can work together to change the world. This meeting is proof that dreams can come true and ordinary people can do extraordinary things. Thank you for watching and spreading the Kid President message! You made this happen.
