Archives For Commercials

I’m trying out a new type of posting.

I found this commercial for Rede Telecine [1], a 2min. short done by Rio de Janeiro-based animation studio BEELD.motion for the campaign Vá ao Cinema (Go to the Cinema).

Titled O Homem que Nunca Tinha Ido ao Cinema (The Man Who Had Never Been to the Cinema), the short tells the story of a bitter man who dreads movie theaters because he doesn’t understand them… until he does.

You can check out BEELD’s concepts and storyboards here.

I love domino-type of videos, as they all go Pythagoras Switch on me. This CM for FedEx is probably not as charming as Docomo’s Forest Xylophone commercial, but still… pretty darn good. Possibly even more effective than Docomo’s CM in the end, because… you know, it relates to the product. xD

It was about six months ago (I don’t know why it took so long to cause controversy) when this Latin American Snickers CM featuring ex-RBD Anahi hit the waves.

In it, Anahi is doing her usual extreme biking when she falls and starts complaining about it. Her male friends call her Carlos and tell her that whenever he’s hungry he’s “acting like a girl.” “That’s not what your girlfriend said,” as she eats the snicker.

Anahi turns into Carlos.

I was never able to swallow that commercial, and every time it was on tv — even though it should be tough to run into it without watching much tv — I ended up changing channels with an “UGH”

Oh, my gosh. I love Weibo. Not only do I get to see post such as this [1, in case you can’t see it], I also get to find out stuff xD. Plus, dedicated streams to Yu-chan stuff.

I get to semi-talk to other fans too.

It seems Yu is also promoting J!NS’ Air Frame — which are apparently super duper light. In the previous CMs (which are plain Air Frame ones) with Joe Odagiri and Chiaki Kuriyama [1]. They claim they’re only 10gr. which I guess is pretty impressive considering they look pretty sturdy.

My semi-rimless glasses seem pretty heavy in comparison.

There’s an HD version available but it’s not an official upload so it might get deleted.

*EDIT*

Here’s some behind the scenes and a small Q&A via JIJIPress.

Here’s a clip of the Making Of.

I refuse to believe there’s no script on this one [1]. I just refuse to believe Yu-chan is this cute in real life. And I have an urge to eat some chips, with the lack of Calbee Potato Chipusu around – I’m just gonna have to get any other chips.

By the way, two funny CMs [KOIWEB] in like one week. Yu-chan, I know you do this on purpose.

There’s also an Amusement Park version.
