This drags on for a little bit, but you need to wait until the end for the punchline. Just don’t be eating or have liquid in your mouth while watching this. You won’t keep it down. And yes, you’ll think it’s fake. And that’s because it is. Or at least I’m 99.999999999% sure it is. […]

Look, we all know these videos are fake. So let’s just agree to stop doing them, shall we? Especially ones like this. We’ve all seen the videos that are at least semi-plausible. This one is just ridiculous, not funny and so contrived – from the acting to the camerawork to the forced pause on the […]

Once again, no clue what it has to do with selling candy, but this is one of their weirder/funnier/more original spots I’ve seen. And yes, if you do it, it’s creepy as hell.

God I hope 2011 is the year that advertising grows tired of the fake “real” videos. But I doubt it. This one is well done and will fool 98% of the people who watch it. They’ll never think to dig a little deeper and learn the real story behind it. Hopefully we can move past […]

Shoot me now.


This just in: That ridiculous rollerskating babies spot for Evian? It’s now in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most watched online ad in history. Sorry, I refuse to link to it and add to the insanity. But my original thoughts on the spot are here. Isn’t this a sign of the Apocalypse? […]

By now, everyone with an internet connection has seen one of those supposedly “real” videos showing someone doing something super human. Of course they’re always for some marketing campaign, but if the special effects are done well enough, they at least make you think for just a second that they could have happened. And then […]

If you haven’t seen this video yet, check it out. It’s got to be one of the worst driving exhibitions on record. When I saw it, I immediately thought, “Damn, that would suck if you came out of the gym and your car was all smashed in like that.” So what does this have to […]

There’s been so much news around healthcare reform lately, it’s made me wonder why I haven’t seen more advertising about it.
