the new american express campaign "my card is", is very clever. Just saw the print version in the

new issue of New York Magazine... if you're in adverising/ marketing, take a look - very well done.

the hewlet packard TV campaign with the dude putting frames in front of his face and capturing images

and then reversing them is another clever execution for the brand's digital technology.

the adidas a1 campaign was nice, with Karen O singin and the guy running in his dream.

sad to say, but i really think the Domino's TV ad with the "555" deal where the employee answers the phone and the customer says "we all want something different" and he replies "everyone wants something different, that's why we have the 555 deal"... "you're welcome." "i love you too.".

the axe TV campaign is also clever and relevant to whom it's targeting. smart execution in amplifying a lifestyle that most young dudes lust after - getting play all day everyday, anywhere anytime - just where "axe" and you can big pimp too.

fuck, the "big ideas" behing these ads seem so simple when you analyze them, but to come up with them and have them be cohesive with the brand isn'r easy, but I guess that's why most advertising sucks.

sorry - this is totally not relevant to this board. but the dude posted, so.

what up?

I really like the Hewlett Packard ads with the frames on the face too. I don't know what it is about it besides the technique of using the pictures frames, because it's not only neat but it makes me feel homely and comfortable.

It's a Jose Gonzalez track called Heartbeats, off of his 'Veneer' LP. One of this years' essential purchases if you ask me.

Leon's adds are so bad!

Everytime I see one I just can't understand how it's possible to create such things

yes!

finally, someone understands my fervent desire to put Leon's out of business.

i guess they don't have leon's outside of canada?

all the Xbox360 ads are pretty kick ass. Both the water balloon fight and the other one I saw with kids jumping rope.

It's a cheap furniture store.

I'm almost sure it's only in Canada, you're spared.

yeah, leon's is unfortunately a creation of the great white north.

i've actually noticed that recently they're not quite as "anus shrinkingly" bad as they used to be.

sitll not withdrawing my life-long boycott.

OMG! Heartbeats is a cover of The Knife's original song with the same name. The Knife's second album "Deep Cuts" is probably the best album ever made. Check it out!

When I originally posted I didn't know that but I found out since. Gonzalez is reknowned for his eclectic and innnovative covers - Heartbeats is definitely one of the killer tunes off of the LP, and his version of Kylie's 'hand on your heart' available on another EP is one of his most popular tunes! I saw him a couple months ago in London and he played versions of Massive attack's "Teardrop" and Joy Division's "Love will tear us apart" as part of his live set as well.

Interesting. Would like to hear his takes on those songs. BTW Karin Dreijer of The Knife does the vocals on Royksopp's What Else Is There, just so you know how good The Knife is. Download or buy, now!! They've got a new album coming out early this year too, in jan or feb.

There's small streamed samples of some of his stuff - including the kylie cover and Junip, his newest project - over at Boomkat. http://www.boomkat.com/artist.cfm?a=9126 his personal website is at <a href="http://www.jose-gonzalez.com/" target="_blank">http://www.jose-gonzalez.com/'>http://www.jose-gonzalez.com/"] <a href="http://www.jose-gonzalez.com/" target="_blank">http://www.jose-gonzalez.com/</a> and then there's "Love will tear us apart" live in stickholm at [url=http://songsillinoismp3.blogspot.com/2005/10/jose-gonzalez-live-in-stockholm-feat.html ]http://songsillinoismp3.blogspot.com/2005/10/jose-gonzalez-live-in-stockholm-feat.html

Personally, while I think he's incredibly talented, I find there's something quite eery about him and the way his audience receive him. I'd definitely question the point in bashing out fairly souless acoustic versions of classic songs as crowdpleasers as well.

Thanks for the Jose Gonzales info!

BTW did you know that the guy in the HP commercial is actually the director? Francois Vogel from Paris. I thought it was just some guy from nowhere.

Good...

Levis: usually pretty good they're entertaining, and do a good job actually advertising

Burger King: lately they've been pretty fun, anything is better than their old ones with just music and pictures of their burgers.

VolksWagon: though some of their ads are a bit too hipsterey, most of them are pretty good.

Bad...

Old Navy, Banana Republic, Gap: need I say more?

Afflack: This shit is the worst, Does anyone like these ads? The Midwest? I dont know

Pepsi: Always trying to prove they're better than coke, How petty

Cept during Christmas/Holiday season i couldn't Tell a GAP/Old Navy/Target/MACY/JC Penny commercial apart.

I like the Gieco Car Insurance take on Old Navy Ads....not feeling the Gecko latley tho.
