Tears, rain and whiskey = beautiful

A beautiful and haunting spot for Tullamore Dew may get you a little verklemmt or happy, or both. . 
Friends get together on a rainy Irish day to say good bye to a buddy and share a bottle of Tullamore Dew.  Created by NY based Opperman Weiss and shot in Ireland.  Buy your airline ticket to
Ireland right now, or at the very least go to a liquor store and get a bottle of Tullamore Dew.  Cheers.

Don't just give us pink, we have brains

It surely seems to be popular to load up rooms of little girls with pink beds, ponies, balls and other pink toys, and in general it is not wise to put little kids into a gender box.  GoldieBlox aims to change that why shouldn't little girls wear hard hats and aim to be engineers.  In a fun Rube Goldberg setup 3 little girls have had it with pink.

A bit of warmth from Kohl's

I personally find Kohl's to be an ultra depressing department store, but this most recent Christmas season ad is quite clever and touching.  I expected the kids to storm in once the parents rushed out of the nicely Christmas decorated room, but oh no, there is a surprisingly warm twist.   Ho, Ho, Ho.

The most amazing split by Jean-Claude Van Damme

You will likely feel that your strength and flexibility means nothing when you see this amazing Volvo Trucks ad with Jean-Claude Van Damme, but it is really not meant to crap on your ego, but to promote the stability and precision of Volvo Dynamic Steering.  The relaxed and calm Van Damme combined with the smooth Enya sounds and of course the smooth driving truckers makes me want to run to a Volvo Truck store right now.

Run like .....

Asics ran a cute ad during the ING NYC Marathon and it featured a treadmill set to the pace of American marathoner Ryan Hall.  Folks were harnessed to avoid face plants or other accidents, but it was still amusing to watch.   Now had Ryan Hall actually raced in the event and done reasonably well the 60 second spot would have been even more clever.
