Reading Glasses Oscars Ad (Proposed)

We see the Best Picture Oscar screw up with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, and the announcer says: “Think reading glasses are embarrassing? Think of what can happen without them!”

Google Photos Oscars Ad

I hope everyone saw this ad during the Oscars tonight. This ad is one of the all-time greats of Oscars ads, with its cute family videos, photos and fun copy. Like that old saying about movies goes: you’ll laugh, you’ll cry. But you won’t have to kiss any money goodbye this time.

This one, for aspiring ad people: just watch it and learn.

This is the stuff great relatable ads are made of.

Wow, I’m surprised I could find this ad online already, but here it is:

Cadillac Oscars Dare Greatly Ad

This spot is really good, with just the message we need to hear right about now in America. But when you consider that not everyone can afford a Cadillac, the message starts to fall apart, which is unfortunate, because it’s a great message.

But why doesn’t Cadillac make great looking cars like they used to? Older Cadillacs are some of the coolest cars ever! The newer ones, well, aren’t. They should go back to what made Cadillacs cool in the 1950s and ‘60s and try to reimagine that.

Here’s the super spot:

Rolex Oscars Ad

Wow, this is really great! I wish I had done it! Only I wouldn’t have done it nearly as well as this was done. This was a wonderful TV commercial! This is how you do an Oscars ad right, showing a bunch of great movie clips with characters using and referring to Rolex watches. And that was before product placement, I’ll bet!

Boy, they really knew what they were doing in this spot! My hat’s off to them, even though it reveals my thinning hair.

(Sorry: I can’t seem to find this spot online where I usually look for them. But I hope everyone saw it.)

Ex Lax Creedence Clearwater Revival Joke Ad Song

To the tune of: “Lookin’ Out My Back Door” by Creedence Clearwater Revival:

Just walked in the bathroom boy, sat on the toilet, oh joy,
Got to sit down, need something from your butt to pour,

When you’re constipated, you wish that you could make it, go
Doo doo doo, comin’ out your back door.

You don’t know what you should do, to make your colon go poo,
Got to get it out of you, your butt is really sore,

First you take some Ex Lax, sit on the toilet, relax, and
Doo doo doo, comin’ out your back door!

Cheese and chocolate rabbits, just stay in your rear end,
Won’t you take a pill, sit and chill in the loo, and doo doo doo,

Make the right decision,
And assume the position,
Doo doo doo’s comin’ out your back door!

This is “Lookin’ Out My Back Door” by Creedence Clearwater Revival:

Orange Juice Joke Trump Print Ad

We see an orange with Donald Trump’s hair on it, and with a straw sticking through the hair and into the orange, and the slogan reads: “Orange supremacy: Drink it in!”

Cadbury Crème Egg “Egg on Your Face” Ad (Joke/Proposed)

We see a series of kids (in close-up) with chocolate on their faces, especially around their mouths, and the last one we see unwrapping and eating a Cadbury Chocolate Crème Egg, leaving the same chocolate pattern on his/her face, and the announcer says: “Easter is coming. A lot of people will have egg on their face then.”

Alfa Romeo Alfalfa Romeo Ad (Joke/Proposed)

We see Alfalfa, from the Our Gang/Little Rascals series, playing Romeo in a joke version of the Romeo & Juliet balcony scene, and the announcer says: “It’s kind of like that. It’s cute, and it’s great, and it takes you places: The Alfa Romeo (whatever model)!”

(I think this actually would connect with American audiences in a fun way, but I doubt anyone would try it.)

This is Alfalfa playing Romeo & Juliet:

Self-Driving Car Beatles Ad (Proposed)

We see a baby sitting in the driver’s seat (in a car seat that elevates the baby to driver’s height) and the parents in the back seat together in a moving car as the song: “Baby You Can Drive My Car” by the Beatles plays. Then we see the car drive by a group of people with the baby looking like it’s driving, and as the people on the street freak out, the announcer chimes in, saying: “Don’t worry, the baby’s not really driving, it’s the new (whatever brand) driverless car!”
