This is a neat commercial advertising the Star Wars films on Sky Movies that runs through the entire saga to date. It even makes the Prequels look interesting.
Back in July GoPro announced a way for you to get paid for the videos you shoot via a licensing portal, but now it’s upping the ante. With GoPro Awards, an ongoing contest pays you for the photos and videos you shoot. $500 for a photo, $1,000 for a raw video clip, and $5,000 for a video edit. Not bad.
This neat commercial for Cycling Canada—an organization for the promotion of cycling in Canada—shows a bunch of bikes riding themselves and having fun. The cyclist-less bikes appear drifting on dirt roads, descending mountains full speed, and zooming across the city.
When a commercial starts with a silly premise like:"What would you do if your friend turned into an animated GIF?" you know you're about to watch something great. That's why I'm such a big fan of Flying Horse's ads. The Brazilian energy drink brand makes some of the weirdest and most hilarious commercials I've seen…
Damian Kulash—lead singer of OK Go and the guy who creates their popular music videos—just made this neat commercial for the Chinese home furniture brand Red Star Macalline. The ad features the band members and follows the same visual style as their video The Writing's on the Wall.
This is not an optical illusion, but it takes advantage of exactly the same principles that make optical illusions work: Our eyes and brain don't scan reality like a camera does. Instead, the brain interprets external inputs, building its own reality. No spoilers, just watch.
This hilarious ad for French network Canal+—promoting their film production division—tells the story of why unicorns disappeared from the surface of the Earth. I'm not going to tell you more about it so I don't spoil it—just make sure you watch it until the very end.
This beautiful Adidas' commercial directed by Karim Huu Do—featuring Pharrell Williams, David Beckham, Rita Ora and Damian Lillard—questions what a superstar really is. So we have to buy their shoes I guess? Ah, leave the shoes, take the canoli. Who cares. It's a pleasure to watch.
This cool comercial for Madrid Fusión—an international gastronomic summit held annually in Madrid, Spain—shows the complicated life of a man who bears the burden of having two mouths.
This commercial for the Toronto Jewish Film Festival shows legendary porn star Ron Jeremy trying to understand why his movies have never been accepted to the festival. I feel the same way as you, Ron, Woodfellas and The Rod Father are brilliant.
This neat Ikea commercial feels like a National Geographic documentary about bird migrations. But instead of birds, it is your beloved t-shirts. They did it to illustrate how, when the cold time comes, it's time to use Ikea's storage to put your summer clothes away.
Probably inspired by the thousands of YouTube videos featuring daredevils failing in their stunts, the ad agency 303lowe created this hilarious ad for Australian insurance company Budget Direct—the story of Captain Risky and his clumsy stunts. It is brilliant.
I hate holiday gift ads in general, buy especially when we are so far away from those dates. And yet, I can't get myself to hate this ad about a kid and his penguin. Yes. A kid and his penguin, who looks like the real thing even if it's 3D rendering.
Here's a clever ad from Philips for their smart Hue light bulbs. It shows how much the living room has changed since the invention of the light bulb: TVs get flattened, furniture evolves, people's clothes follow trends, etc. but the light bulb stays the same. Well, we know that's not exactly true but it's a cute ad…
Kudos to General Electric for hiring actor Jeff Goldblum and directors Tim and Eric to make this hilarious commercial to promote their new LED lightbulbs. I'm a fan of Philips' LEDs but, after this, I will be checking GE again. Because I'm that easy to convince and it's Jeff fucking Goldblum, ok?
This hilarious Volkswagen commercial shows why car chases will become as obsolete as those old movies that depend on telephone landlines to make their plots work.
I thought that the classic Old Spice "I'm on a horse" commercial was entirely made with green screens and video compositing. I was so wrong. This video shows that, for the most part, it was made with clever use of movable backdrops and camera work on a beach, in one single take.
