Do people hate advertisements? While that seems to be the basic understanding, it can be argued that individuals just do not like or even worse still, ignore bad advertisements. Creative ads– which break media mess and convey a single minded message in a compelling way through entertainment, humour or tapping into other emotions (such as fear as seen throughout the COVID-19 pandemic) create brand name affinity. They can likewise be a competitive edge in an item or service parity scenario. Here are a couple of advertisements which captured my eye today:
Tourist Indonesia: waiting
The hospitality, tourism and travel industries were badly hit in 2020. A number of the gamers– be it hotels, cruises or country brands have actually started projects this year prompting customers to get back to travel mode. New Zealand introduced an eccentric campaign to promote tourist within the nation. A new project from Tourism Indonesia appears to be targeted at an international audience conveying that the country is waiting to welcome them. What holds ones attention in the ad is the strategy of pausing at essential minutes to dramatise the wait. The visuals and copy work together very well to trigger the crave for travel. Safety preventative measures are likewise cleverly weaved in ( our care is waiting) which makes the total method conscious the present context and issues of tourists.
Agency: M&C Saatchi
Havells: sensation fan
It may seem like simple word play between ceiling fan and sensation fan however when you see it the context of IoT-enabled fans which can notice the temperature in the space to adjusts its speed, all of it forms. The plot anchored around two kids and the banter in Hindi makes it all really capitivating. Lovely advertisement.
Firm: Mullen Lintas
Interflora: womens day
The majority of ads, if past experience is to go by will be complete of platitudes, saluting women for their abilities, sacrifice, multi-tasking and achievements. Lots of such topical and occasion-related advertisements (a variation of which is moment marketing) appear to stem out of FOMO– the temptation to do something around a chance whether it is pertinent to the organization or not.
In this context, comes an advertisement from Interflora which intends to produce awareness about gender inequality. While the subject itself has gathered presence in media for several years now, the visual concept which wisely weaves the product classification makes the project a winner.
Firm: Rise at Seven
Skoda: every option
There are several reasons to love this advertisement from Skoda: it is anchored on a product function, weaves a story based common, relatable human behaviour and is amusing. A scuffle among vehicle owners is typically related to parking issues, scratches on the body of the automobile and such like. The door edge protection function of a Skoda is available in convenient for couple, literally saving their lives from what appears like a difficult neighbourhood.
Orange 5G: initial steps
Often, and rarely so, a movie can be watchable even if it is not anchored on any insight or innovative concept– the execution brings it through. Here is one such, for Orange network in France, where an exotic sound track (unique for that market I indicate) is most likely to hold attention and get that so adorable! reaction aided by the casting of a toddler too.
Firm: Publicis Conseil
Nestle: Stop the world
The concept appears to be to communicate that rather of mindlessly investing time on social media, take pleasure in the present with a Nestle. The product appears to be incidental however a visually mesmerising movie.
Agency: Gut, Brazil
Renault: the chase
I did not expect the twist in the end. Heres a charming 60-second spot that ticks all the boxes: concentrated on the product and drives home the point (no pun meant) that Renault Zoe is a popular automobile in Europe.
Agency: Publicis London
Enjoy the ad below and picture it playing throughout the advertisement break in a live sports telecast or any other popular program. Chances are it will be immediately visible as it breaks the circulation and develops a state of mind which focuses attention on the brand name. Loved it.
Agency: Havas, London
Unacademy: the best lesson
In India, no brand name can fail with an ad which has a montage of cricketing moments from Sachin Tendulkars career. Lots of ads including him or clips from his sporting days have actually fallen flat or gone undetected. But not this one from edtech brand name Unacademy since it is rooted on an idea and take a treatment route which is different from other ads featuring him: reveal moments of his failure initially. As soon as that is done, the final crescendo is just goose flesh moment which assists to deliver the message: failure is the fuel of champs.
Firm: MullenLowe Lintas

One can state, a bit unfairly perhaps, that pet brands have it fairly easy as any showcasing of pets (be it cats or canines) will evoke interest and get that awww! action. They cant afford to be lazy and create communication without a concept. Heres a lovely idea for Pedigree lap dog variant summed up so well in the base line: for the superpowers they believe they have.
