Style or substance? Audi and BBH believe you can have both in their new TV ad…
Unless you’re a woman! Hahaha, let’s all sneer at the silly vain tart who’s fallen down in the rain! She can’t have style and substance – she chose style, the moron.

I really enjoy silly humour within TV adverts, so this series of ads created for Cadbury’s Creme Egg by Fallon have obviously tickled me. This one, in particular, is my favourite.
I’ve seen three so far. I hope that there are more variations, because they crack me up (excuse the pun).

Cartoon Network always felt like such a treat for me as a kid. We didn’t have a Sky subscription back then, so I’d never tire of watching endless cartoons whenever I got the chance. London design agency, I Love Dust, created this two minute video for Cartoon Network’s twentieth anniversary and – although I don’t recognise many of the characters now – it still makes me feel all happy and fuzzy inside.

I’ve never stayed in a Motel 6 motel before, so I have no idea what they’re like as a company. However, I love this ad by The Richards Group that shows how a traditional American family have changed while Motel 6 have been in business. It’s very conventional, and the family remains nuclear (no single parent scenarios or same sex couples – this is designed to appeal to your average middle American, after all) but I quite like that about it. It gives it a nostalgic feel throughout, even when the family progress to the contemporary stage, with their modern day car and iPad.
