I’ve seen great videos produced by boutique agencies last year in 2011, including two of my favorites both by John St.’s Catvertising and Pink Ponies.

If you’ve read Seth Godin‘s book Purple Cow, you must know how [...]
Just helping to spread this amazing piece created by my colleagues over at Ogilvy advertising. It is not a social media campaign, but the idea behind this ad campaign is absolutely clever and touching, the message they want to spread is the hospitality Shangri-La hotels offer, the “hospitality from the heart”. They have uploaded this [...]
Parody in advertising can gain more attention than the original piece if it’s done well. This piece definitely went viral. Specsavers, an online glasses shop created this great viral piece that mocks an older advertisement by AXE. AXE has always been selling sex appeal in their ads, Specsavers’ ad is clever enough to take advantage [...]
