World's Best Commercials 2008

ad⋅ver⋅tis⋅ing –noun
[ad-ver-tahy-zing]
1. the act or practice of calling public attention to one's product, service, need, etc., esp. by paid announcements in newspapers and magazines, over radio or television, on billboards, etc.


I just returned from watching the World's Best Commercials 2008, a showcase of the best international commercials as recognized by the London International Awards for advertising. Here are some of my favourite ads from tonight:

Nintendo’s – Sponge
Cadbury’s – Gorilla
Herringbone’s – Henri's Hands
Ameriquest's – Brownie
Thrifty’s – Birthday Girl
Allan Gray Limited's – Beautiful
Freixenet Carta Nevada Reserva's – The Key to Reserva

On a personal note, this was my first foray into watching a movie at a theatre alone. I’ve gone to parties, bars, clubs and out for dinner all solo. On the list of social activities to do alone one of the only things left for me to do was to sit in a dark theatre with 100 other audience members. Check

And now I’ve done it. Next thing on the list - solo traveling.

I was there too! Loved all of those too, especially Brownie and Beautiful. Toy Story was top of my list. I haven't gone to a bar or club alone but I've done the others! Movies are the easist to go alone to!

I really really like the one with the girl talking (singing) on her cell phone. I think it was silver for best use of music but I can't find it anywhere!

Hi Sylvia,

I actually didn't like that commercial, it was too real to life. You know having to listen to someone else's loud inappropriate cell phone conversation while on the bus. Anyway here it is Astro Mobile, Bus - enjoy!
