Daikin - Air Conditioner AD

I have been trying to hunt down this particular ad from Daikin for a very long time...
The most alluring feature of this ad is the fact it shows 2 of the 36 views of Mt.Fuji as painted by the Japanese artist Hokusai.

It starts with the painting of The Great Wave off Kanagawa


and ends with a modified painting of Shore of Tago Bay,Ejiri at Tokaido.

Chase - Secret Agent



The bg is "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers.
The song was the theme song of a T.V. show in the early to mid 60's of the same title. The show starred Patrick McGoowan as a secret agent.

ABSOLUT ads are prime testimony to how advertising can change the fortunes of a company. A single ad - The ABSOLUT LA Campaign helped ABSOLUT overcome Stolichnaya as the best selling imported vodka in California. A beautiful set of ads that opened a whole wide world for the incredibly creative folks at TBWA. - The ABSOLUT City collection.


ABSOLUT LA - The ad that started it all.



ABSOLUT BOSTON -- Absolut Vodka cases floating in the water, with some of the cases having floated up against each other, forming an Absolut shape. Photographed by Steve Bronstein, this ad commemorated the 225th aniversary of the Boston Tea Party. A Brilliant concept and beautiful execution - An ad that celebrates the heritage of this city and its importance in the history of America.




ABSOLUT PHILADELPHIA - One would have expected the steak to come out in a vodka bottle shape for this city.



ABSOLUT BOSTON - Another one for this city with a dedication to the legendary Celtics.

Anti-White Campaign



I am sorry people, but these are some ads that really drove home the point. We live in mixed cultures where race,colour and faith should no longer be barriers.

History portrays us as separate entities but with global distances shrinking, we can no longer afford to stick with our geography-induced differences.

Apple Mac Air - I am a new soul



I am a new soul - by Yael Naim is a very catchy song and used best for selling Apple's New Mac Air, which is so in synch with the song's lyrics..

Music video is pretty surreal but makes a lot of sense.

Oscar Mayer Comercial



Andy Lambros was just four years old when he was recruited
to sing the “My bologna has a first name, it’s O-S-C-A-R”
jingle for a TV advertisement. The youngster became frustrated
with the number of takes necessary to get the song just right,
and his “How’s that?” ad-lib was so naturally cute that it was
ultimately left in the commercial

Coca Cola Ad



One of Coca-Cola’s most enduring jingles was also a hit single: “I’d Like to Teach the World
to Sing.” The lyrics were inspired when a creative director for Coke’s ad agency was stranded
overnight in Dublin, Ireland, due to heavy fog over London’s
Heathrow Airport. Passengers were tired and cranky, and not
looking forward to spending the night at Shannon Airport. The
ad exec grabbed a snack at the airport coffee shop and happened
to notice that at nearby tables, passengers who were strangers to
one another (and who had been irate just an hour earlier) were
sitting together and chatting over bottles of Coca-Cola. The line
“I’d like to buy the world a Coke” popped into his head, and the
phrase was expanded into a memorable 1971 ad campaign.

Old Spice Ad - 1971



Look what I found here!!!!

Anybody wants to take a guess on who the clean shaven sailor is?
