Today, I debut a new feature called Tuesday Throwback. I’ll be looking at a notable commercial that’s no longer airing. It doesn’t have to be particularly old, just one that isn’t running anymore. Tuesday doesn’t really have anything going for it, so here’s something.
Love, love, love this Bacardi mojito ad from Spring 2009. Puts a huge smile on my face. It’s a better version of a Bacardi commercial that played endlessly this year, which I liked, but got old quickly. The idea of going to a party and having each room represent a different era is pretty killer. Great style and dancing too. The awesome, energetic song playing is “Daylight” by Matt & Kim. And something you may or may not know about alcohol commercials is that they are not allowed to actually show people drinking. Take note of that the next time you watch alchy advertising.
