We already know from the movies that at any moment, we will wake from our cozy reality to discover ourselves geriatric prisoners having spent our lives at the hands of robots who force feed us ice cream to an ironically chipper 1950's jingle. Do we really need a reminder?
Come November, audiences are going to see Hulk really mess shit up in Thor: Ragnarok. But today, you can see Hulk be a little more considerate.
The now-removed Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad has had its share of parodies over the past week, including one from the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, but the best one so far has to be the clip that added a touch of eerily relevant science fiction, thanks to a pair of They Live sunglasses.
Ford Fusion Power!
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…
After five years and $115 million of development, the Freightliner SuperTruck is Daimler's answer to a lofty challenge set by the Department Of Energy: "improve semi-truck fuel economy by at least 50 percent." This concept blows that benchmark out of the water.
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.
