Tuesday Throwback: Valspar Paint’s Beautiful Commercials

A few days ago, Sherwin-Williams bought its smaller rival Valspar. The news reminded of these Valspar commercials, which I loved. I remember them being on from around 2006-09. They’re incredibly beautiful, with the colors of Valspar paint being compared to the colors of nature. I really like the relaxing, slightly mysterious, new-agey music of these spots. Unfortunately, the music, created by Jonathan Elias, was made specifically for the commercials, so no downloading. A few of the ads can’t be embedded, so you’ll have to watch them on YouTube.

 

Tuesday Throwback: These Beautiful Valspar Paint Commercials

I remember these Valspar ads being on from around 2006-09. They’re incredibly beautiful, with the colors of Valspar paint being compared to the colors of nature. I really like the relaxing, slightly mysterious, new-agey music of these spots. Unfortunately, the music, created by Jonathan Elias, was made specifically for the commercials, so no downloading. But yeah, if I had any painting-related plans (which I don’t), I would consider getting Valspar paint. So the advertising is a success!

 

 

Valspar Has Transcendently Beautiful Paint

I think Valspar’s campaign flew under the radar because it isn’t a huge name (despite being the fifth largest paint corporation in the world) and paint isn’t such a sexy consumer category. But just check out this spot, which can’t be embedded on this blog.

Awesome. The commercial doesn’t even mention the experience of painting; just that the paint evokes the amazing colors of the world. The campaign seems to have ended, since I haven’t seen any of these in at least a year. But with the help of YouTube, here are some more.
