This new McDonalds commercial from the US stereotypes people from the Netherlands, and their supposed paying etiquette, in order to promote their new Double Dutch burger. Even though (for me as a Dutch citizen) it's quite an unusual and provoking approach, I still had a laugh.
If you have contacts from advertising world in your Twitter account maybe have noticed that for the last three or four days the amount of similar avatars featuring some familiar characters has grown from a few to many, thanks to this app in which you can create your own Mad Men series character. Here you can see me waiting to get into Mr. Draper's office. Beautiful.
Jung von Matt and FIDO did an impressive work to tell the story about building the sustainable future for RWE. As explained on Motiongrapher, the project was originally conceived as an in-house corporate video, but the clip will premier in German cinemas to mark the launch of the new Harry Potter film.

Heineken keeps walking on it's viral success of the Walk In Fridge commercial. Earlier we saw the 'user generated' spoof, and now they made an official follow up called Walking Fridge. Again, not as good as the original, but it will make you smile on this lazy Friday afternoon.
Just over a month ago, Adidas released their kick-ass Celebrate Originality "House Party" spot. This video included celebrity stars like David Beckham, Katy Perry, Kevin Garnett, Missy Elliott, and Mark Gonzales. UK television channel Sky 1 now made a hilarious parody to promote The Simpsons. Featuring celebrity stars like Homer, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and Marge..
Dutch beer brand Bavaria just launched a commercial that leaves no mistake. It's a direct, professional and fun spoof on the popular Walk In Fridge commercial from competitor Heineken, which was released late December 2008. I bet this will be continued..
Cadburry is getting famous for its weird but striking commercials. I'm sure y'all remember the Gorilla ad, and maybe even the trucks commercial. All on courtesy of A Glass And A Half Full productions. Just released is the follow up called Eyebrow Dance - which is pretty much what is is. But it's good!
