ads with a message

The combination of the internet and superbowl ad hype started me paying more attention to good ads.

I prefer funny or strange ads.  However, once in awhile an ad with a more serious message comes out and that can get my attention too.

Here are two ads recently that grabbed my attention because of their message.  One is for gum and the other for a beer.  Neither of those products are very serious things and maybe that's why the ads had a better impact.  What do you think?

At first I posted these type of video/ad finds along with all my other posts as I did today.  A few years ago I thought it would be better to post the video stuff in a separate blog.  The other blog that I started collecting ads and videos I enjoyed is called "another circus".   Just click on the circus lane road sign below.

I pretty much never watch TV & can't remember the last time I saw an ad... :-O

Strong messages for pretty trivial things. I wish they were for something more important--especially the wheelchair one. Thanks for sharing!

ads need to cut through the clutter so funny or not they can get my attention.

what are you cluttering your mind with these days?

I rarely watch ads any more but all three of those are great. I especially like the first one. There is nothing sexier than a man being a good father. But the guys being a good friend is awesome as well.

I have seen the Evian ad (that you have on your other blog) before but I could watch it over and over. It's just so fun.

thanks and thanks for following the link to the other blog with the videos. Yes the messages in the two on this post are refreshingly different than the usual junk we are offered.

I really liked both of the adds. I appreciated that the messages.
