Heathrow’s Bears Make Their Triumphant Holiday Return

Heathrow’s Bears (officially named Doris and Edward Bair) have been a big hit since being released a few years ago. And of course they’re a big hit…who can resist cute and cuddly bears? This time around, the Bairs are just like old Americans, and they’ve moved to Florida. It’s nice and warm in December, but the homesickness starts to creep in…what with frozen turkey dinners and a sad Christmas tree that gets blown over by the ceiling fan. After Skyping with their family, it’s settled. They’re coming back home for Christmas! Aww. Paul Young’s “Every Time You Go Away” is the evocative soundtrack to this adorable spot, created by Havas London.

Bears And Packers Play On An Amazon Stream

On Thursday September 28, the Bears and Packers will play a game on the Amazon Prime stream. It’s the first time Amazon’s had it…Twitter had the rights to streaming last year. So they have an amusing new ad to promote it. Amazon’s spot is faux-documentary style with a David Attenborough soundalike, and it shows literal (well, CGI) bears and packers playing football along an Amazonian stream. Pretty on the nose, and pretty damn funny too.

Carnival Cruises Are More Enjoyable Than Bear And Lion Attacks

From the commercials I’ve seen so far, 2012 is going to be a funny year. Besides, even if the world ends on December 21, that still gives us 355 days of good times. Looking to take a vacation? Carnival feels that a cruise might be more relaxing than camping.

Haha. The bear/lion part is great enough, but the disclaimer warning is awesome. Like any ad featuring something ridiculous there’s a disclaimer that states “For dramatization only. Do not attempt”. Attempt what? Getting in a situation where you’re cornered by a bear and lion? Good advice. Of course, something like this would probably happen to that hapless cruising couple. And as any Green Bay Packers fan would know, the song at the end is Todd Rundgren’s “Bang the Drum All Day”.

1/14 update: Uhh…this probably doesn’t help Carnival’s argument. Costa is also owned by Carnival.

1/17 update: Just noticed that Carnival took this off its offical YouTube page.

Because Bears Like Montell Jordan And Pepsi, Apparently

Coca-Cola’s polar bears are classic. This…is not.

Weak, Pepsi. Very weak.
