Mad Men for CTAM

This spot has reminded me how much I miss Mad Men. When will season three start (dying here). If you feel the same way, get a little Don Draper and Robert Sterling fix in this video created to promote the CTAM Awards. Found on AdRants (thanks Steve & Angela).

You are in the dog house

You are in the dog house

This spot for JC Penny, by Saatchi & Saatchi New York and directed by Hungry Man’s Bryan Buckley, hits home on so many levels (too many to get into). So many things are great about this spot; the intercom relaying positive messages, the line “duel bag doesn’t even know why he’s here” and the review board – priceless. Thank you peg leg Tommy for sending it my way. It made my day. Question: do they sell these fantastical “dog houses” at JC Penny? If yes, put me down for two.

Visualize what a Lexus IS F sounds like

This Lexus spot is currently being shown in cinemas in Canada – I saw it before A Quantum of Solace the other day, which has the least amount of sex I’ve ever been in a Bond film. Back to Lexus. “We were given an audio clip of the car running full tilt and asked ‘what would that sound look like?’ We then interpreted the sounds visually and used Maya and After Effects to create imagery that built adrenaline and took the audience on a journey,” Crush CD Gary Thomas explains. Crush directed the spot via Dentsu Canada. Full credits are here.
