Tommy Hilfiger Holiday commercials

Have you seen Tommy Hilfiger's holiday commercials? 
     Fantastic art direction! (My favorite is the first below with the dog at the end!)

DSW caroling commercial

  
LOVE THIS! For so many reasons! 

See for yourself...

 

Bridgestone Mr. + Mrs. Potato Head commercial

I know, I know, this has been airing forever, but I love it!
 
 
 
 
(Found it on YouTube.com/BridgestoneSuperBowl 
where I also found "Whale of a Tale" and "GPS.")

Radox Japan commercial (and McDonalds with no food!)

When it comes to Japanese commercials (or just commercials about Japan), YouTube is my bestest friend.
   First, it was the Adult Hello Kitty for Glico, and now it's a Japan-themed ad for Radox... check it out!


Also found another funny Radox ad on their YouTube page,
this one, with a Bollywood theme:


Finally, I'll close with a quirky Japanese McDonalds ad... there's not even any food in it!
TANOSHIIIIIIIIIIIII!
("Fun!")
 

Japanese Glico Cats commercials

After blogging about the Japanese Darth Vader cell phone commercials, I had to do some more digging for great Japanese commercials!

Here are my two favorite finds for the candy brand, Glico starring Japanese actress Rie Miyazawa...


(Links: 1, 2)

And here's a screenshot from Glico's homepage advertising "Otona Glico," 
which means "Grownup Glico," hence the grownup Hello Kitty!

Windows Phone "Really" commercials

I am "REALLY" liking these ads for Windows Phone!
 
Below are some new ones I found on YouTube.com/WindowsPhone.
   (Already posted about "Season of the Witch" and the original "Really" ads here.)




Krazy Glue bungee jumping commercial

Is this really real?  It sure seems like it!

"Professional stunt using backup safety protection. Do not attempt."



Check out Krazy Glue's website or YouTube page while you're wondering...

Ford Fiesta Arrow Sign Spinner commercial

Been seeing this one a lot lately!  It's almost as good as the first party ad...

 

Armstrong Hardwood Floors

YES!
I LOVE GREAT, UNEXPECTED COMMERCIALS FROM UNFAMILIAR BRANDS!
ALL CAPS!


The recent ads (featured below) have just a small amount of well written copy (some only have the tag) and visuals that not only make you pay attention, but also watch until the end... check them out! (The first is my favorite!)






(I found the ads above on Armstrong's YouTube page.)

New Farmers Insurance commercial "Watercraft"

Have you seen the ads? With that guy, you know, that guy from EVERYTHING?

    First off, the ads are for Farmers Insurance. Secondly, the actor's name is J.K. Simmons, and maybe you've seen him in Spider-Man, Party Down, The Closer, Up in the Air, I Love You Man or Juno? (Just to name a few.) 

UPDATE:
Check out the latest University of Farmers ads, "X-Change Student," "Dryer Fire," 
"Slideshow" (featuring Meatloaf) and "Distracted Driving."
 
(Go to UniversityofFarmers.com to find out more - fun site to explore!)
 
Now, here are the (funny!) commercials!





Check out Farmers Insurance on their YouTube page, Twitter and Facebook page.

"Meet the Wongs," "Cat Burglar" Farmers Insurance

Searching Farmers Insurance's YouTube page for more funny ads starring J.K. Simmons, I found a pretty funny claymation video called "Meet the Wongs." 

   Enjoy!


 

Ally Bank "Studio," "Interview" commercials

I loved the ads with the kids for Ally Bank, and the other day I found "Studio."
 
     It's pretty good (but not as funny as the kid commercials I think.) Thought I'd share!

 


Also airing recently,
