You’re Not A Suburban Mom, You’re A Waif In A Designer Dress

Target and Wieden+Kennedy went their separate ways last year. Now, some of the retailer’s post-Wieden work is beginning to appear on screens. The new food-forward ads made to support Target’s PFresh program are from mono in Minneapolis. Target has 1,100 stores under the PFresh model and 250 SuperTargets that offer a full range of groceries, […]

Vagina, Vagina, Vagina … There, Kotex Said It

Who wants to work on diapers? Or tampons? No one, right? This may be changing, thanks to a brave new campaign from Kimberly-Clark and Organic and O&M. In this new effort from the Kotex brand, young ladies are encouraged to speak freely about their vaginas and ask vagina-related questions. Sans stigma. There’s an element of […]

Smart Phone App Turns To TV For New Users

We don’t see many TV spots for smart phone Apps. But here’s one from Zite, “the intelligent magazine App, you make your own.” Sadly, Zite didn’t give us much to love here, but for people currently using Flipboard, this spot might raise an eyebrow. And let’s face it, the App is free. It’s not hard […]

Chip Kelly’s Ducks Are Like Chocolate And Peanut Butter

Context is king. Content is queen. I’m cool with that, as long a content is still on the thrown. Reese’s, for one, knows what I am sayin’… Naturally, this :15-second spot plays during college football on Saturday afternoons, and it is a reference to not settling for just one point after a score, when two […]

Subway Sliced And Diced By Arby’s

Crispin believes in disruption. If there is a status quo lying around someplace unprotected, Crispin’s team will seek it and destroy. They’ve done it for pizza, for cars, and now they’re doing it for Arby’s roast beef. Of course, Arby’s is no local deli. But by comparison to the fast food slinging giants, like Subway, […]

Political Ads Haven’t A Chance Against This Beauty

Megan Fox may be smoking hot, but let’s not hold that against her. Like many of us, she aspires to higher things. Like inter-species communications! And thanks to a willing dolphin, an adoring team of scientists and the new Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook, Fox achieves her goal in a scant 90 seconds. Share

Good Choice, Business Pro

Do you improve Return on Investment (ROI) through Search Engine Optimization (SEO) by Close of Business (COB)? Awesome, National wants to send you from the airport to the nearest Holiday Inn Express in the full size of your choice. I like this spot from Cannonball in St. Louis. It connects with the business traveler by […]

The Sky Is Falling. Grab Your Wallet.

Restore Our Future, a super PAC supporting Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, unleashed a new $17.7 million television ad buy Tuesday that will pay for commercials to run in 10 battleground state markets. This is President Obama’s economy? No. Presidents have a lot of power, but they are not omnipotent and they do not “create […]

Are You Dreaming of Flying To Korea?

Flying from North America to Korea isn’t a cramped bummer of a ride. No, it is the fantasy of flight come to life…when you fly Korean Air. The spot above is from 2010, but I saw it on TV last night and said to myself, now there’s a retro idea. Flying was sexy 40 years […]
