Heineken booked a nice viral success with the recent Walk In Fridge commercial. Within a couple of weeks it got over 5 million online views. IllegalAdvertising.com is now pointing at a user generated Walk in Fridge, spoofing the commercial. Production is pretty slick, so probably no consumers involved, but that doesn’t spoil the fun.
In The Netherlands, Skoda is running a fun and very interactive campaign to promote their renewed Octavia models. Through a campaign website they made it possible to control a real car. On several locations throughout Holland, the car is parked, and then controlled and viewed by the internet audience. If you have a spare moment between 09.30 and 18.30 (CET), you should definitely give it a try or at least watch the live stream. (To play along, use the green horn button on the opening page)
Responsible agency is Achtung!
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!
Three Drunk Monkeys in Sydney have changed the way banks speak to customers via webisodes based on the current financial climate. They are produced in a ‘tongue in cheek’ way but also contain essential finance information in simple everyday speak. The first one is up now.
So simple, so on product en and so funny. Love it.
Update: Director Superfad points at some fun outtakes. Read further to watch.
The Never Hide campaign for Ray-Ban has been very successful so far with several very viral video’s. You’ll probably remember the guy that catches glasses with his face and the same guy that is bobbing for glasses. This time the video goes one step weirder. See for yourself! Via Illegal Advertising
It’s been a while since we’ve last seen a proper Heineken commercial. A shame, since their ads had been grown out to a real trademark over the years. But with the just released spot below, aimed at the Dutch market, they seem to be back on front.
Yahoo!7 in Australia has launched the new Yahoo inbox as Think Outside The Inbox. It shows how easy it is to have your friends upfront and the rest – well elsewhere. As Australia is struggling with broadband this is cool to see a video ad that pushes them. A cowboy tells you all about it in a video.
Creative and development by Three Drunk Monkeys.
It’s that time of the year again: agencies start releasing their creative Christmas wishes. And the first one I see immediately sets the standard. Simply a great piece of work by AKQA. If you come by any other great Christmas wishes, please leave them in the comments below.
This year again, it’s an army of supposed terrorists that warn the Dutch people for the dangers of their traditional New Years Eve fireworks. The L.A.A.F. army now joined forces with neighbouring Belgium, since they provide the Dutch with illegal fireworks. Enough ingredients for a controversial campaign.
