Geico Motorcyrcle insurance Paper World ad

Creative new ad for Geico motorcycle insurance...




  
Also, check out "Ghost Bikes" and "Road Rash" here!
 

Geico Laugh Track commercial (new!)

 
Maybe you've already seen the Geico robots,
but have you seen the new "Laugh Track" ad ?

  
 

New Toyota Highlander commercial boy- Nathaniel James

Thank you to everyone who has posted about the new ads for Toyota Highlander... at first, I thought they were cute. Or maybe I just thought the kid was cute. But now, he's really starting to bother me. Those poor parents out there. Also, what kid uses "je ne se quoi" as part of their vocabulary? (The copywriter is pushing it.) Found them all on YouTube.com/ToyotaUSA. The kid's even got his own talk show.

Tag: "Just because you're a parent, doesn't mean you have to be lame."



 
Finally, here's a screenshot of Toyota.com/Highlander:

New Target Halloween commercial "Scary House"

 
Very... sweet!

 

Budweiser "Grab Some Buds" commercial

Have you seen the "Grab Some Buds" ad from Budweiser?


If you haven't, I highly suggest watching it below!

Tagline:
"Great Times Are Waiting"
 

YouTube description (from Dark Gallery Films):
"Anheuser-Busch describes Budweiser's new "Grab some Buds" ad from Anomaly as a "beginning of a journey. The ad campaign is called "Anticipation," and endears itself to what we call our Budweiser loyalists. So, what you're going to have is a lot of beautiful visuals, camera angles, great music, which builds the spot in that feeling of anticipation and pays off with a fairly big crescendo."
 
(You can also check out the ad on Budweiser's homepage, as well as other ads from the brand.)

And hook up with your buds with the "Grab Some Buds" Happy Hour Facebook app here!
  

Converse "Join the Procession" commercials

Woah now! I saw the Converse masks ad, but how have I not see "Join the Procession"?!

  

And check out more spots below...





 
 (Found all of the ads at YouTube.com/Converse.)

You can learn more about the campaign on Converse's blog.
 
Searching for the ads, I also found a fun spot featuring well-known choreographer, Luam:

VW has some fantastic ads out for the Jetta... my favorite is "Moonlighting;" check them out below!

YouTube description:
"What a guy would do for love. The all-new 2011 Jetta. Great. For the price of good."




 
YouTube description:
"After four years of blood, sweat and tears, top Volkswagen designers and product engineers assembled from around the world are ready to soak in the glory of their creation -- or so they think."
   
And here's a Tour of the 2011 Jetta:
 
 
(See more ads on Volkswagen's YouTube page.)
 
Here's a screenshot of the Jetta page...
I really like the line "'Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice' for the price of 'Nice.'"

New Xerox commercials

Have you seen the new ads for Xerox?
  They're great!

 Tagline:
"With Xerox, you're ready for real business."
 (Learn more at RealBusiness.com)

The first is my favorite,
Notre Dame Cuts Printing Costs
 
YouTube description:  "The iconic Notre Dame Leprechaun, seen here as a cut-out. Xerox developed a comprehensive student print management program that helped reduce printing costs by 20% and cut printing waste by 60% campus wide. Now the University of Notre Dame has the freedom to focus on winning both on the field and off!"


YouTube description:  "The New York Mets mascot is better at entertaining fans and leaving direct mail design and direct mail marketing to Xerox."

 
YouTube description: "For Ducati, testing bike aerodynamics is a far better use of time than, say, translating manuals into Portuguese, something Xerox easily manages for Ducati technical communications globally."
 
  
Learn more about the Xerox/Ducati partnership:


 

YouTube description: "Bellmen at Marriott Hotels + Resorts show how they couldn't finish the company's monthly invoicing because they were focused on what's really important -- providing exceptional customer service. Luckily for them, Xerox automated Marriott's global invoice process and handles 11 million Marriott invoices annually."

 
Learn more about the Xerox/Marriott partnership:
"Marriott Customer Satisfaction"

You can learn even more about the campaign:

GoToMeeting Mr. Sushi commercial

Saw this ad for GoToMeeting.com (web conferencing) at the gym the other day, no sound, no captions...
 Try watching it with the mute button, and then without... which do you think is better?

A very creative effort, either way!

 
(Found the ad at GoToMeeting's YoutTube page.)

DSW Hiking commercial and Kung Fu Shoe!

Loving these fall ads from DSW!

"Hiking"

"Kung Shoe"

See more ads from DSW in my past posts like

Wow, have you seen Chevy's new ads? The ones for the Cruze? I wouldn't call them "attack ads," but then again, maybe I would...

Have you seen this absolutely INSANE ad for Crazy Cola from Russia?!?!?!


  

LG refrigerator Round 2!

I've been looking for a certain ad for LG's cool new refrigerator forever! (The fridge that pulls out like a table... see website screenshot below!)
 
While I can't find the actual ad, I had a great time surfing around the LG refrigerator website (see another screenshot below), and also the commercials section (with some older spots) of the site.commercial (newer table ad!)
