Happy New Year

As the year 2012 comes to an end you are likely looking at your watch or a clock to count down the time to midnight. The spot below from MySwitzerland is also about clocks, but not really about time, but we think you will walk away with the resolution to visit Switzerland in 2013.

The Motherhood featuring Fiat 500 SL

It isn't easy to be a mother (or a parent in general) and as the father of relatively young twins can certainly relate to the plight of the woman in this Fiat UK spot. The woman has virtually everything taken away from her that made her cool and hip, but she still has a very stylish and sexy Fiat 500 SL. This 3:12 spot is very well done and appears to be designed to stay online. It is a good thing then that it is currently approaching 1,000.000 views, and we'd expect it to go well over it.

Crafty Canadian work

What looked to be an amazing captured video of an eagle snatching a child turns out to be the crafty work of students at Montreal's 3D technology school, Centre NAD. So it is a hoax and not real, but their hard work has currently been seen by 2,600,000 pairs of eyes as we speak. Many guerrilla marketing folks would love to get that kind of response.

Low rider action

This GameStop Low rider Commercial is very well done and suggests you should "roll home fat with holiday goodies." So get on it and put some weight in the trunk of your vehicle.

Just in time for Christmas

How Lego made an 11-year old boy with Asperger syndrome very, very happy with a super kind gesture. James Groccia from Massachusetts had saved money for 2 years to get the Lego Emerald Night Train set, but when he finally had the money the train was no longer available. Well, you may imagine the rest of this story, but watch the video below. It teaches us that great customer service is the best marketing tool any company has.

A Holiday Carole visit

As you visit the Stella Artois website you may notice the beautiful Alice Eve on the home page but there she is simply referred to as Carole. If you give a few details to them she will actually come to visit a friend of your choice or yourself and deliver a holiday greeting. We were quite smitten when she decided to stop by our headquarters and deliver some cheer.

Here is Carole / Alice Eve

On the way to us

If sometime soon we find some beer at our doorstep because of this guerrilla marketing effort we would be quite happy, but hopefully that won't turn out to be just junk mail.
