    Kyrö Distillery

    Friends from Finland shared this advert for Kyrö Distillery, a Finnish distillery, who gives us a master class at how to introduce the world to their unique line of products.

  • Nike – Can’t Stop Us

    My kids are sick of me showing them Nike’s latest commercial which was just released this morning and already has almost 5 million views on YouTube and over 50k retweets on Twitter.

    Nike has done it again, this time capturing the sometimes comic ritual of gift-giving (in this case, the tradition of hongbao red envelopes given out during the Chinese New Year) in Asian culture. These envelopes are often filled with money and given to children by elder relatives for good luck. The 90-second spot from Wieden+Kennedy […]

  • A lifetime in two minutes

    It’s been awhile since I’ve used the advertising tag to highlight ads that cross over that line to something more than just marketing.
