Advertisements - Which is not unduly obvious, as I am about to explain
Last Friday oshawa and I want to see a film of selected Cannes Lions winners, a prize given to some of the best advertisements in the last year. Here are some of them!

German coast guard
Amora hot ketchup (pyat should enjoy)
March of the Penguins
Mean nurse in a retirement home
Evolution, backwards
It's a Big Ad
A problem beard
Japanese milk campaign (contains several; we saw the second one)
Underwater laundry
Coca Cola (a really good, complex setup)

Then there was a series of four ads for "Smooth E" soap that told a bizarre love story. These are subtitled, but the text is small - best to watch in full-screen.
Part one, two, three, and four.

Miller auditions. These are quite long and feature talking animals. The site uses Quicktime, and you have to enter your birthdate to enter. Best clips: the bear, the raccoon, and the otter.

Current Mood: amused amused

Mandy and I took her nephew to the Cannes Lions on Saturday night (it's sort've like an anniversary thing for us now), and thought most of it was great.

I think you've hit most of the ones I liked, though I did really like the car commercial where parts of the body were drawn as engineering diagrams. I don't have time to look for which one that is right now, but I can try and figure it out later.

I LOVED the Amora hot ketchup ones!

Oh, that car commercial would be this one!

Full list of winners available in a PDF.

Wow! Awesome videos.
Do you have another link for the Tornado video? This one has been removed :(
