Advertising is an incredibly tricky business to be a part of. You have to learn how to appeal to a massive amount of people, and sell a product in less than a minute. And if you cross a specific morality line, you are completely screwed over. Here are some successful ad campaigns that I've noticed recently.
Of course, everyone has seen these commercials. Hell, they've been around since 2005-ish. But did you know that animator Don Hertzfeldt is considering suing the Kellogg company for copyright infringement on his art style? It's true. Still, these commercials are brilliant. They may be thieving cretins, but they still know how to get people to buy a product.
All of these have pretty witty plotlines starring different celebrities or sports stars. I've seen 50 Cent (seen above in the extended cut of this commercial), Carrie Underwood, Brian Urlacher, Shaquille O'Neal, and a few others. The above is my favorite out of all of them, by far. And I don't even listen to much rap, much less Fiddy.
This is probably one of the coolest commercials I've seen in a long time, because it's all about being a douchebag to people that deserve it. I like Chester's voice. It reminds me of a DJ on a smooth jazz radio station.
These are amazing. They all start off exactly the same, with the fatter kid stomping on his Capri Sun pouch. But what happens after is where the good part comes in. There is the one above, along with at least four others. I suggest you search for them on YouTube. You'll definitely be entertained. That fat kid is an asshole.
