Olive Garden’s Family Commercial

Olive Garden is apparently on its way back up, after getting ripped to shreds in a report by investment firm Starboard Value. And while the jury is still out about whether the Olive Garden is a good place to eat, they do have a nice new ad here created by Grey New York. Going off the restaurants long-running theme of family, the spot combines home movies and statements about the value of family. The backing song is a version of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ “Home”, an advertising favorite.

DirecTV: The Manning Brothers Star In “Football On Your Phone”

This new video from DirecTV, created by Grey New York, has become an instant hit…racking up more than 2 million views on YouTube since being released yesterday. I’m not sure I’d call it good, but it’s absurd, hilarious and massively memorable. Something you just can’t stop watching. Peyton and Eli Manning have cultivated very goofy, marketable images that are on full display here. There’s even a cameo from their dad, Archie Manning. And the song is ridiculously catchy too. Did you know that you can watch football on your phone?
