Wednesdays with Will: Three Memorable Ads

This edition of WwW focuses on three memorable recent ads!

 

These three ads each take different paths to making a memorable impact on its audience.

1.#Firstworldproblems. Not problems

 

 

Taking a catchy and relevant hash tag like #firstworldproblems and using it as a catapult for the struggles of not having clean water certainly drove this message home. Brilliantly done!

 

2. Ship my pants

 

 

This outrageous commercial has received some positive and negative media attention and uses complete shock value to immerse its audience. Absolutely hilarious, mildly risque.

 

3. Live Young

 

 

Within the last couple years, a “Can’t Miss” formula for commercials has been catchy music, dancing, and …babies. You see them in everything from the E-trade commercials to McDonalds and Evian really takes the cake with this feel good throwback.
