Johnnie Walker: The Man Who Walked Around the World

I went to a Johnnie Walker Tasting Event in NYC recently, in my opinion, they are one of the best marketing powerhouse in the world, rivaling some of the best such as Apple, Starbucks, etc... This video was shown at the beginning of the event, it was very well done. Cheers!

Miller Light Commercial: Man can't say "I Love You"

I always thought this was a funny commercial:



Apparently, some YouTube comments suggested this was very similar to a commercial for Budweiser years ago:

Old Spice Doogie Howser aka Barney Stinson

I've been following the show "How I met your mother?" recently and have to give it to ole' Doogie for playing an 'awesome' character there. In this Old Spice commercial, we see a hybrid of Doogie and Barney Stinson all in one! Classic.

LL Cool J wasn't always so "Swagger"

Until he tried Old Spice Swagger... I cracked up watching this one. The young kid they found playing LL Cool J is funny.

Coach Tom, from Staples Viral Marketing, Funny

Staples has a pretty funny campaign going using viral marketing as key. Its their giftitforfree.com campaign where people have a chance to win back the money they've spent at Staples from 11/16 to 12/24. The campaign follows a funny coach named Tom and his convoluted take on events surrounding him. The clip below is his encounter with a group of folks practicing Tai Chi made me chuckle a bit.



Another YouTube video here, as well as his Facebook and Twitter profile.

Amazon.com to Circumvent "Wrap Rage"

Amazon.com has long been the leader in innovation, marketing and web-expertise. Today, I logged on their homepage to find a humorous marketing banner addressing "Wrap Rage" which is when us humans get frustrated with packaged goods too difficult for us to open. This reminds me a lot of the "Instructoart - Master of the Obvious" comic/art from Matt Vescovo.

Click on the banner to enjoy this humorous letter yourself!

Viral Marketing & Funny: Officemax Penny Pranks Series

OfficeMax is pulling out a serious effort on the Viral Marketing/TV/YouTube effort. I saw a commercial tonight with a guy using a hidden camera walking into a liquor store to buy things with pennies. And the store clerk refused. The theme is that OfficeMax will take your pennies in their "penny sale". They followed-up with a YouTube URL (http://Youtube.com/PennyPranks) asking audience to checkout other penny pranks. I think this is funny, smart and a nice push on their viral/youtube effort. Kudos to OfficeMax

Sexy Marketing: Ecko Jeans Commercial

Wow, Ecko Jeans company is very edgy with this commercial. The theme was "Hot Girls Make Great Clothes" for you at their factory with models wearing bikini. Take a look below. I also found a couple of behind the scenes clip. Definitely got my attention when I was watching "The Hills" marathon on MTV this afternoon. (Oops... did I just give away that I not only watch MTV, but also "The Hills"?)

In all seriousness, Ecko is very smart about this commercial. When I was researching for the commercial on YouTube, they uploaded all sorts of unrated clips to supply any potential viral marketing potential. Very impressive follow-thru.

This new product features a cool touch interaction and the online banner ad actually trenscend that experience beyond the ad. Upon clicking the banner, four buttons slides out into the main page giving you an interactive experience to see VIDEO, SPEC, Reviews and BUY options.

Amazing!
