Gulf Bank Flash Mob

Someone should have an intervention with Gulf Bank before they release a Harlem Shake video next. Flash mobs are so 2009. [YouTube]

Jazeera Airways Blunder

Post by Mark

durex

It seems whoever is handling the Jazeera Airways twitter account also handles the twitter account of Durex and last week confused the two by posting a Durex advert under the Jazeera account. Either that or Jazeera Airways want to promote their mile high club.

Jazeera Airways quickly pulled the ad down and posted an apology but not fast enough since someone managed to grab a screenshot and now their mistake lives on the internet forever. [Link]

Thanks Basel

Ascia + Coca-Cola

Post by Mark

cocacola

Local instagram star Ascia was recently featured in Coca-Cola’s #OpenUp Ramadan campaign. The campaign pays tribute to the holy month by spreading happiness and encouraging people to open up to each other, rekindle lost connections and mend unresolved tensions. It’s pretty touching and both her and her husband “open up” in front of the camera which is never something easy to do, although I guess if Coca-Cola came knocking on my door I’d probably do the same thing as well. Checkout the spot below.

My favorite Ramadan commercial so far

Post by Mark

I was going through the list of top Ramadan commercials on Khaleejesque and the one above for Rauch drink was the only one that stuck out for me. Everything else either looked the same or put me to sleep. [YouTube]

Who and where is the Pizza Italia guy?

Post by Mark


[YouTube]

Two years ago by complete randomness I found out who the Tikka “I like it spicy” guy was and posted about him. Now out of nostalgia curiosity I’m hoping to find out who the Pizza Italia guy from the commercial was and what he’s doing right now.

So if you have any information on the guy running in the commercial (pictured above) then let me know. Actually any information on the commercial like who did it, how it came to be etc.. would be interesting as well.

Update: Here is some information according to two readers. The Pizza Italia guy in the commercial is actually a Lebanese actor. The commercial was directed by Nick Cate, who is now living in the UAE. The scene in which is he running in front of shops was filmed in old Salmiya where Alamiah and Waleed Toys were located. The camera was located on the first floor of the building on the opposite side (the one with Xcite and Cinemagic).

Update2: According to Nick the director of the commercial, it was shot on a hand cranked 16mm Bolex camera and the music was composed by an Egyptian composer called Mohammed Al Banna.

Racist or Not?

Post by Mark

A reader emailed me regarding this China Garden ad that appeared in the latest Bazaar’s Dining Guide. Him and his friends found it very offensive. What do you think?

Do you find this ad racist or not?

This can’t be real

Post by Mark

This wasn’t made for Kuwait I guess? [YouTube]

Update: The KDD commercial has been pulled from YouTube so if you didn’t watch it you missed out.

Red Mango Commercial Part 2

Post by Mark

The continuation for the Red Mango commercial has been released and I now think their commercials are my favorite this Ramadan (and yes I prefer it over the Qualitynet one). [YouTube]

If you missed out on the first part you can watch it [Here]

Update: I just noticed the video says part 2 of 3 which means there’s still another one left. I don’t mind a series of ads for the same campaign but I’m not a fan of one single ad divided into smaller parts. This is YouTube, you can release one long ad and not have to worry about the advertising cost…
