Racist Commercial?

Post by Mark

This commercial was in the news yesterday (I think MBC) and they were talking about how racist it was towards people from the Gulf. I just watched it now and I actually think its pretty funny. Sure they are stereotyping but thats what makes it funny. The commercial is about this Sheikh who spots a fuel efficient Nissan Tiida and goes ballistic on it. What do you think? [YouTube]

I know I said I was going to post only two videos today but I had totally forgotten about this video which a friend had sent me earlier. A hilarious commercial from Syria and supposedly it was released this year! [YouTube]

Dead Bats

Dead Bat

I just saw two new Fasttelco ads and I think they are of really bad taste. The one above shows a dead bat bleeding while the other one shows a bat screaming in pain as it crashes through a window. These have to be the most horrendous ads Fasttelco have ever released. Check them out on ads2blog.com [Link]

Update: I just got an email from someone at Fasttelco telling me these ads were never and would never be released by them and that they were never approved. Ads2Blog have also updated the original post stating that the ad was done by an Art Director and “were never meant to see the light nor get published”. I guess that makes a lot more sense now. Its good to know Fasttelco haven’t completely lost it.

A Live Commercial

Post by Mark

A few days ago BBC Channel 4 aired the first live advert in the UK for Honda. When I say live I mean live. A group of elite skydivers jumped simultaneously from two aeroplanes and formed the letters H, O, N, D and A in sequence, within a three minute time limit to advertise the new Honda Accord. Really cool idea. [YouTube]
