Long week for me as we head into the end stretch, but there were some interesting or instructive ads that I wanted to point to. Each one could have it's own post, but don't have the time for that, so I'll give you the ad infinitum version. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTSQozWP-rM&feature=player_embedded]
Wow. Great production values, I wonder how much they spent on this ad? Good ad, tells a story, is unexpected and clever, love the iPadish display of Wall St. Makes me almost believe what they're saying. Funny how much more powerful a story can be than straight facts. Also I appreciate that they stuck with the concept and subtitled the ad rather than doing it in english. Top stuff here.
A really clever execution, following one woman through her life and how Sharron Angle would effect her. Great graphic design behind the woman. Wonderful ad.
This ad is a gimmick, and serves as a great contrast to the two earlier ads. While the others have a concept that accentuates the message, the opera frame in this ad basically goes... nowhere. It's like two ads in one, yes you get the nice pay off at the with the face the music line, but really, it feels like a lot of sound and fury signifying... not much. If they really followed the concept, the singer would have sung an aria about Fiorina, that would have been awesome and also appropriate -- the tragedy of HP.
