Creative TV advertisements

The other creative advertisement threads have focused on photos of print ads and other outdoor advertising without any mention of the typical TV commercial. So I figured I'd start sharing some of my favorite TV advertisements.

I'll start us off with Brylcreem's Effortless TV Ad



Quote:
The new ad for Brylcreem starring Sam Veale, featuring the music of Scottish indie rockers B Raymond and the Voicettes. Sam was chosen following a competition Brylcreem ran on MySpace due to his effortless tricks.

@shewolfnm,
Ha, I saw the opening scene and remembered it from my days as an ESL teacher. I believe it's one of those banned commercials. A whole thread could be done on the edgy commercials that aren't approved, there are a lot of real funny ones.

This one is funny on TV. Might be hard to follow on a small screen, so make it as big as you can.

@dlowan,
That's one of the great ones. I've seen it before, but it still makes me laugh.

@dlowan,
That's another of those ad that didn't make the cut and is circulating on the net (too much) as a "banned ad". Durex did one along that theme that I liked a lot better.

@Robert Gentel,
This one's so bad it ended up being good. It was a local flea market ad that got nationwide exposure for being so damn horrible.

I have long said that, generally speaking, commercials are more entertaining than the programs built around them.

@Robert Gentel,
This Advertisement for the new Honda Accord was shot in real time with no CGI involved in the sequence. It required 606 takes and cost $6 million to shoot and took 3 months to complete.

The equipment was so precisely set up that the crew literally had to tip toe around the set for fear of disturbing things, which led to some unexpected problems. "As the day went on, the studio would get hotter," says Steiner. "It meant that the wood would expand and the cog or exhaust that spins around would move slightly faster." These tiny changes made big differences to the precision set-up of the equipment......

.....The sequence where the tires roll up a slope looks particularly impressive but is very simple. Steiner says that there is a weight in each tire and when the tire is knocked, the weight is displaced and in an attempt to rebalance itself, the tire rolls up the slope

@CalamityJane,
That one is a classic, I don't even have to watch it to remember it in detail.

Honda made another good ad where a choir made all of the sounds of the car. Pretty impressive:
