Really like this “Hear What You Want” spot for Beats By Dre with KG. It builds out from a product benefit into a great emotional connection. I think we all play music to give us the soundtrack we want for whatever we’re going through/experiencing and this spot nails that in an example that KG and his context are perfect for. via Ad Freak
Great spot. Wish the song was a little more badass though. Some a little more like this.
I’m probably late to the party here, but this Beastie Boys sampling ad for toy company GoldieBlox is awesome. I heard Beastie Boys are contemplating legal action over the unauthorized use of ‘Girls’. Given how GoldieBlox has taken a song that objectifies women and turned it into something totally empowering, the Beasties would be smart to let this one slide.

Most rappers who promote their mixtapes in the comments section of Dat Piff will breathless hype how amazing their latest tape is. Not Little Bomb. His approach is far more level headed and modest. I appreciate his honestly.
"Today, many of the social media managers at large and important companies are, by contrast, not very smart ad men. To say that they regularly underestimate their customers’ intelligence would be a great understatement. They seem to believe their customers have the brain power of a baked potato.
I’ve collected eight recent social media posts by large companies. Most of these updates are from the last month. To try to pick the abjectly stupidest one would not be easy. You can go ahead and give it a try, though.”
