Cute Overload

It’s in all the feeds, the new John Lewis Christmas ad that is.

It’s very cute and all, but that’s not the amazing thing about it. For the third time in 3 years Adam & Eve DDB have created a great, cute, Christmas ad that has gone viral. There’s nothing extreme here, nothing that’ll make you chuckle till you choke just a nice story about friendship and Christmas – a masterpiece of advertising.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Here’s a clip that shows how much music can do for your ad.

I know, I know this is a Christmas song. But I think it’s much more true for summer, and so did the clever people over at Leo Burnett.

It’s always nice to see the power of opposites and I think it’s sad that we don’t see them more often. Because it’s so easy to create and often gives a fun attention drawing effect.

So why are so few agencies and clients using it? Why are we giving so little credit to the viewer? The average person will not believe you’ve gone mad, the average person will like you for it.

If You Were My Agency I’d want to see more of this, I know as a client it’s scary to put your brand out there. But you just can’t be like everyone else and expect people to love you for it.

Christmas Time

There’s no other time during the year when I have more to do than during my vacation/holiday’s. So what I’ll give you today is just a quick glance at what a christmas ad could look like 21 years ago.

The Christmas Transfer Window

Saw this lovely little ad outside the merchandise store at Emirates Stadium. And since I’m an Arsenal I couldn’t help falling in love with it :)

Coke for Christmas

Pretty nice Christmas commercial from Coke this year. Their message is, as always, happiness. Sadly they also keep their habit and havea tonne of product shots in the ad. But I actually think the ad works, I feel the happiness bubbling up inside me. It’s not a volcanic eruption but there’s some fizz on the surface.
