Can I just shock you? I like the M&S House of Pain one. It's short, I like the tune, and I secretly like that kind of short, everyman choreography.

No doubt I will see idiots mimicing it in pubs across the land (if I ever went in pubs) and silently judge  them. But I like the ad.

Oh yes! If I ever have a stag weekend an Amazon warehouse tour is definitely getting done.

The US is so bad at ad campaigns, they don't have the same "creative" scene in London driving everything. Went to the cinema yesterday and was amazed to see that Target's high-profile campaign was a "Here's to the do-ers, the thinkers, the bakers"-style one: https://corporate.target.com/article/2019/11/holiday-campaign

Just really unsophisticated. A solid two decades behind the UK's shit-scene.

Also fuck that cover version

That Duracell ad that thinks game controllers take AA batteries.

Xbox controllers do...



...although I'd imagine that most people use the Play & Charge kit.

Is the age of advert over? This is the shortest xmas ad thread ever and even JL seems hidden or disregarded this year

Shit I didn’t know that. Thinking about it so do wii controllers. I am a man in orthopaedic shoes.

I did like the promoted facebook ad where the john lewis page made it look like the dragon was dropping down to the waitrose page

I dunno, we still get "Here's to the..." ads in the UK, definitely been at least two just in the last year or so. They stick out because they're so clichéd and terrible, which worryingly might be the whole point. If you can't think of anything new to grab their attention, think of something old.

I swear they've redesigned the Duracell bunny in an attempt to manufacture some Sonic the Hedgehog style backlash. He's got those same fucking creepy human teeth.

Also there's an advert with a dog made of wine corks which is actually quite cute until there's a shot of it playing in a puddle of gravy that looks like nothing else except a big pool of runny shite.
