Sprite’s Dancing Carnival Rhino From Brazil

Have you ever wanted to see a CGI rhino who’s dancing to Carnival music while holding a few cans of Sprite? If so, you’ll like this one, which is part of Sprite’s “Liga O Fresh” campaign created by Wieden+Kennedy Sao Paulo.

Cascade: Sarah Michelle Gellar And Freddie Prinze Jr. Do It Every Night

Celebrity couples are notorious for having short shelf lives, but one that has lasted is Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. These former teen idols started dating in 2000, and married in 2002. So what’s one of their secrets to success? Well, they do it every night. Until recently, they were only doing it once, maybe twice a week. But now they do it every night. They run the dishwasher with Cascade Platinum every night, of course. It saves water versus hand washing, and is much less effort too! So now they do it after the kids are asleep, they do it after pasta, they do it after enchiladas, and they do it after takeout. They do it to save water, energy, and time! So do it like Sarah and Freddie!

Postmates: When All You Can Burgers Is Think About, Postmate It

If you’ve ever had a craving for a specific food, you know that it can be hard to think about anything else until that craving is satiated. So in this surreal and funny new spot for Postmates which debuted on the Oscars last night, we see a guy on the subway who’s got a craving for burgers. And then all around him, all he sees are burgers. Burgers, burgers, and more delicious, juicy burgers! This culminates with the absolutely brilliant tagline “When all you can burgers is think about.” The song playing is “Make It Fast, Make It Slow” by Rob. Good stuff, created by Mother L.A.

 

Heineken Says Men Drink Cocktails Too

If you’re a woman who drinks beer or a man who enjoys colorful cocktails, this new Heineken commercial will probably have some resonance. It’s also got stylish, attractive visuals and nice music. Although I guess we can criticize the women’s choice of beers since Heineken is kinda gross. The song is a cover of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me’…is this Grace’s version or someone else? Excellent work from Publicis Italy.

 

This Valentine’s Day, Kraft Mac And Cheese Is For Lovers

Are you a parent who’s tired of spending Valentine’s Day in a bed with your tablet-watching kid and sleeping spouse? Are you looking for some horizontal refreshment? If so, Kraft wants to help you with its Big Bowl of Mac & Cheese. With more noodles and cheese, you can get them fed, get em to bed, and get it on. Who knew things could get so hot in 3 and a half minutes? Their confused son sure didn’t know. And Dad looks like he’s quite interested in dessert. Anyone know who play the parents in this one?

Skittles Dips Feature Yogurt Boy

Skittles is famous (or infamous) for its wildly surreal ads, and this one falls into that category. A rich young man summons his butler Higgins to get some yogurty Skittles. Higgins dips a Skittle into “Yogurt Boy” and the spoiled brat is satisfied. Skittles are already quite tasty, and adding yogurt sounds just delightful. I’ll have to try ’em sometime.

Liberty Mutual’s Struggling Actor Keeps Flubbing His Lines

I briefly touched on this Liberty Mutual ad during the summer in a post centered on a larger campaign. But I keep seeing it lately, so I figured that I could do a standalone post on it. The struggling actor here (played by Tanner Novlan) is a hunky guy, but looks definitely don’t translate into talent. He’s so bad that his lines get unconvincingly dubbed. An extended cut shows the depths of his struggles. Though ironically, Tanner does an excellent job playing a terrible actor…which means that he’s quite talented himself.
