IHOP: These Pilots Are Into Pancakes

All You Can Eat Pancakes are back at IHOP. I’ve done it before and noticed that the more pancakes you want, the slower they are to actually serve you. Maybe to make you impatient and get you out the door…but I digress. Anyway, IHOP’s new spot from Droga5 features pilots and pancakes. The words pancake/pancakes are repeated 13 times in the 30 second ad, so IHOP really wants you to remember about $3.99 All You Can Eat Pancakes.

Dixie Says Men Shouldn’t Be Ashamed To Eat Salad

Men shouldn’t be ridiculed if they like fruity drinks, and neither should they if they want to eat salad at a BBQ. I’m a man, and I like salad. Granted, my ideal salad is piled high with fried chicken, bacon, croutons, cheese, and creamy dressing…so I’m not sure that really counts. Dixie has a funny, light-hearted ad, created by Droga5, about ending what it calls “salad shaming.” And the line about eating salads with “no regrets, just vinaigrettes” is fantastic.



Shea Moisture Says To Break The Walls Between The “Beauty” Aisle And The “Ethnic” Section

As a white male, there are a lot of things I’ve never had to deal with. It can be awkward at times to talk about racial and gender issues, because the fact of the matter is that I don’t know what it’s like. So of course I’ve gone into a store and seen the “ethnic” section. I knew what “ethnic” meant, and I didn’t really question it. But Shea Moisture’s first TV commercial, created by Droga5, says that beauty is beauty and the ethnic section shouldn’t even exist. It’s excellent, thought-provoking work that addresses issues I’ve never thought about. Here’s more about the campaign from Adweek.

The YMCA Announces Zoe For President…In 2064

We were all young once, and how we were raised, even during infancy, can have lifelong effects. So with the help of organizations like the YMCA, maybe Zoe will indeed become President in 2064 (or maybe even before…she’ll be eligible to run in 2052). Cute stuff from Droga5.




Android’s “Friends Furever” Is Adorable

OK, so it doesn’t really have anything to do with Android. But with different species of animals playing with each other, how could this spot go wrong? Very cute work by Droga5.
