Yo Quiero Taco Bell Dog Gidget Dies At 15 R.I.P.

The worlds most famous Chihuahua "Gidget" who appeared in the popular Taco Bell ads and had a generation of taco Bell lovers saying "Yo Quiero Taco Bell", died Tuesday at the age of 15.Karen McElhatton, Gidget's owner, tells the dog was with her trainer, Sue Chipperton, watching television when she began making "strange noises" and suffered a stroke.
Gidget -- whose "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" spots debuted in September 1997 -- also had a cameo in Legally Blonde 2, in addition to appearing in other TV spots.
"We enjoyed working with Gidget, and she will be missed by many," a Taco Bell spokesperson tells Us in a statement. "Our deepest sympathies go out to her owners and fans."
McElhatton: "She was old. Of course, we were hoping she'd be around for a few more years, but if you have a dog that lives that long, you can't really complain."

Durex Condoms commercial titled "Les Préservatifs Qui Donnent Envie" which translated from French to English is, Durex "Condoms That Generate Desire".

Now why can't all condom commercials be tastefully created like this one?

Blackberry Loves U2 Commercial

BlackBerry and U2 teamed for this new commercial titled "BlackBerry Loves U2. With U2 getting set to start their new tour, there seems to be a great deal excitement about the new album, "No Line on the Horizon," and their revolutionary new stage design. Both are on display in "Light," a new "event" spot touting the band's partnership with BlackBerry.
In the Blackberry ad U2 performs a song from their new LP release, with specks of light reflecting off their instruments (and Bono's shades, of course). The specks multiply, and become more prominent, culminating in a visual crescendo. Bono is enveloped in brightness, as he sings of "sparks of light." The camera pulls back over a sea of screaming fans, and we see the entire band onstage. The visual is complemented by the line "BlackBerry Loves U2,"

Evian Live Young Dancing Babies Commercial

Great new advertising campaign for Evian Live Young featuring the dancing babies, the roller babies and even a moon walking walking baby in one of their teaser spots..
Here is the official press release for the Evian Live Young campaign set to begin airing this Monday.
Evian® Natural Spring Water Urges Canadian Consumers to Live Young™

New Global Ad Campaign Captures Youthful Optimism; Evian Unveils Roller Break-Dancing Babies to the Beat of Rapper’s Delight Remix

Toronto, ON – July 6, 2009 – Evian® Natural Spring Water unveils a new entertaining global advertising campaign and a new signature message, “Live YoungTM,” the ultimate expression of Evian brand values, including origin, health and youth.
The worldwide kick off began with a viral pre-launch and online infiltration via YouTube in the U.S., France, UK, Germany, Canada and Japan. The energy-filled television spots rolled out in select geographies in: 60, :30, and: 15 short films directed by the award-winning Michael Gracey (also available for viewing on the brand’s new Web site,
Bursting with an infectious energy and love of life, the new ads portray lively, happy babies roller break-dancing to a remix of the hit Rapper’s Delight by hip-hop producer Dan the Automator, connecting consumers to their inner youth.
“To Evian, youth is not a matter of age, but a mindset – a youthful mindset that is optimistic, believes that everything is possible, and is curious and eager to discover the world – much like that of a child,” stated Jérôme Goure, vice president of marketing for Danone Waters of America, the exclusive importer and marketer of Evian in North America. “The babies in this campaign exemplify this attitude and the celebration of adding life to your years.”
Evian natural spring water is precious and pure; a miracle of nature! Every drop of Evian takes more than 15 years to filter through mineral rich glacial sands in the pristine French Alps, providing a uniquely balanced mineral composition and natural purity. It is only appropriate that the brand’s new ad campaign should depict babies, a universal symbol of what is precious and pure, and embody the unique attributes of Evian Natural Spring Water.
The new ad campaign personifies the “Live YoungTM” message in a humorous and entertaining fashion with a pop-culture slant. Directed by Michael Gracey (part of the creative circle behind Baz Lurhman’s “Romeo and Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge”), 96 babies were filmed for the spots, which feature roller break-dancing routines set to a Rapper’s Delight remix by Dan the Automator. The famed California hip-hop producer’s remix will be available as an MP3 from all major international digital download sites, just one way Evian is placing the Web at the heart of this campaign.
“The campaign is an enthusiastic modern-day musical production, involving the sharpest contemporary artists like Dan the Automator and Michael Gracey,” stated Remi Babinet, the founder of BETC Euro RSCG and global creative director of the Euro RSCG network. “It makes use of a number of platforms: music, film, internet and design and reinforces Evian’s position as an influential, contemporary worldwide brand.”
Evian’s new Web site, ( also accessible via )hosts the two viral films and other digital teasers such as: the audio remix, “making-of” clips, and “interviews” with select babies from the film sharing anecdotes from the set.
In addition to the television and online debut this summer, the “Live YoungTM” campaign will be featured at upscale consumer events around the world, including the Evian Masters Women’s Golf tournament in July and the US Open Grand-Slam tennis tournament in August through September.

Now if you really enjoyed the dancing babies spot you will love the "making of" video of Roller Babies.
Special thanks to Scott M. at Maverick for sharing this with us.
