Tool and JWT Milan Get With It For Two New Heineken Commercials

Director Erich Joiner of Tool of North America and JWT collaborate on a hilarious new campaign for Heineken, set to air on Italian TV and online at www.areyoustillwithus.com.

What do you do when you invite a few guys over to watch the game and enjoy a few cool refreshing Heinekens, only to realize that one of your buddies brought his girlfriend along? And what if that buddy was wearing a "Go Team" sweater personally knitted by said girlfriend? In Football Match, one of two new spots for the world's most famous Dutch beer, Joiner examines this awkward phenomenon using his deft comic skills to deliver an instantly memorable campaign.
Moving finds the same rugged brood of guys moving into a rustic house together. This time one of the housemates shows up with a flashy new washing machine, prompting looks of disbelief from his friends. Soon the new washing machine settles into its rightful place; on the porch, full of ice where bottles of Heineken wait and chill.

and the next Bing Commercial is..."Syndrome"

The second commercial release for the new Microsoft search engine "Bing", this commercial for Bing titled "Syndrome" claims that Bing is the Cure for Search Overload Syndrome. The next bunch of commercials, collectively titled "Syndrome" continue with the theme of "search overload" and try present the idea humorously, a big difference from the dramatic "Manifesto" spot that kicked off the estimated $100 million marketing campaign yesterday from WPP agency JWT.
Sorry Bing, the marketing campaign alone wont work, after using Bing I find my results are no different than those I get from Live, and we all know how good Live wasn't. Remember what I said yesterday Bing = But It's Not Google.

Louis Vuitton Journeys - Astronauts Some Journeys Change Mankind Forever

What do Louis Vuitton and the space have in common, well it seems we will find out July 2, 2009 when the website www.LouisVuittonJourneys.com is officially launched. In the mean time Ogilvy created this promo teaser which is actually very good to introduce the world to the Louis Vuitton Journey the world is about to experience. Titled "Astronauts - Some Journeys Change Mankind Forever," To mark the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11s landing on the moon, the promo video features those aboard the Apollo 11 and of course Neil Aldrin Armstrong who muttered the words "That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind". I'm really looking forward to seeing what any of this has to do with Louis Vuitton, really nice video.

GM The Reinvention Commercial

General Motors begins their "reinvention" today and have a new commercial to help promote that fact. Ironically the GM Reinvention spot created by Deutsch, LA has GM admit to many of the mistakes the company has made that put them into the position they find themselves in today and how they plan to reinvent themselves. Nice, really nice commercial, I love the spot wish I could say the same about GM.

Locals Know Tourism Canada Advertising Campaign

As a Canadian who loves her country and all it has to offer us this new ad campaign for Locals Know is great and reminds us just how much Canada has for us to enjoy. The Locals Know campaign was created by DDB Vancouver, Canada. The website www.localsknow.ca allows visitors to upload images of their favorite and own discoveries.

Press release: Desert-like dunes in the middle of the country. Volcanoes on the verge of the Pacific. Tropic-like waters within hours of vibrant cities. Canada is full of surprises and secrets and, this summer, the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) is sharing locals’ unknown experiences with fellow Canadians - to inspire them to explore their country.

Today, the CTC, along with Canada’s tourism industry is launching LOCALS KNOW, a national integrated advertising campaign (print, magazine, TV and online) made possible by special stimulus funding from the Government of Canada. The CTC will be investing $10 million per year in the next two fiscal years to support the tourism industry and stimulate Canada’s economy.

“The visitor economy makes a valuable contribution to the economic, social and environmental well-being of Canadians across the country,” says the Honourable Diane Ablonczy, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism). “Now, more than ever, we want to entice and encourage visitors – including Canadians themselves – to explore our country. I applaud this campaign as it will give Canadians a reason to discover more about their own country and keep tourism dollars at home.”

The 8-week campaign launches today and will focus on the unexpected, encouraging Canadians to seek out new and exotic experiences in places they didn’t know existed. The source of this information? Canadians themselves… because LOCALS KNOW best.

Canadians will be encouraged to upload photos of their favorite Canadian travel spots and great unknown experiences on the CTC campaign website – www.localsknow.ca.

“The visuals used in this campaign won’t be typical,” says Michele McKenzie, CTC president and CEO. “People won’t just be seeing the traditional images of our country. They’ll discover a whole new Canada. The imagery, experiences, and deals offered by the industry will surprise Canadians, build pride, and create an urgency to book a trip and see Canada now!”

Almost all provinces and territories, as well as other industry partners both large and small, are participating in this national program.

“The domestic stimulus program is strategic, relevant, and timely for Canada’s tourism industry,” says Denny Kobayashi, Manager of Marketing Operations for Tourism Yukon. “What is particularly appealing about this program is the CTC designed a program for partners from every corner of the country to participate in and receive extraordinary value, national reach and exposure that will benefit tourism in our area”.

Air Canada is introducing a special travel offer for the duration of the campaign to stimulate travel within and across Canada. And one lucky Canadian resident will win 1 million Aeroplan® Miles to inspire them to see undiscovered areas of the country. That’s a lot of Canadian exploring.
