New Uncle Drew Featuring Kyrie Irving

It’s been a while since Inside That Ad has published a post. It’s been so long that we’ve even lost our original domain name. We are now a .NET instead of a .COM. In any case, to commemorate the City of Cleveland’s first sports victory in 52 years via the Cleveland Cavaliers. Here is another installment of Pepsi’s Uncle Drew.

You can see older chapters of this phenomenal Uncle Drew series in a previous post.

Google Commercial: Story of Jacob

Author: | Categories: Advertising, Creative, TV spot, YouTube Videos | (No Comments)

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 9.28.55 PMSo, I missed the ESPY awards today but apparently Google aired its first television commercial during the show. The commercial, a two-minute plus spot  focus on a gym dedicated to providing transgender athletes a place to work out — known as Jacob & City Gym. Interestingly enough, the commercial aired moments before USWNT star Abby Wambach presented the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage to Caitlyn Jenner. Thought of something else, Why are giving this person an award regardless of his/her courage? Wasn’t he/she responsible for the death of another person?

See Google’s debut into television advertising below.

My question is this, why is Caitlyn Jenner’s gender identity still being discussed? Why can’t we let people be who they want to be so long as they don’t infringe on anyone else’s rights?

Finally, I’ll let you know who that agency behind this commercial is as soon as I find out.

Author: | Categories: Advertising, agencies, Art, Creative, Sports | (No Comments)

Nike with the World's Fastest CommercialThe shoe giant Nike recently created the fastest commercial ever advertising their newest Zoom Air sneakers. the spot features some of the world’s best athletes doing what they do best at lightning speed. That lightning speed is demonstrated via time lapse video technology of course. Let me know what you think of the spot down below.

The spot was created courtesy of an agency with one of the funniest names I’ve ever heard of “Must Be Something” also based out of Portland. Being in close proximity to your client must provide extra incentive to produce outstanding work. Anyway, let me know what you guys think of the commercial that incidentally takes a minute and 30 not the traditional 30 seconds.

Some of the athletes featured include:

  • Kobe Bryant: 5-time NBA champion (basketball)
  • Wayne Rooney: 3-time England player of the year (soccer)
  • Richard Sherman: Super Bowl champion (football)
  • Marlen Esparza: Olympic bronze Medalist (boxing)
  • Odell Beckam Jr.: Offensive rookie of the year (football)
  • Rafael Nadal: 14-Time Grand Slam champion (tennis)
  • Serena Williams: 20-Time Grand Slam champion (tennis)
  • Marcus Mariota: 2nd overall NFL draft pick (football)
  • Katarina Johnson Thompson: 2014 world No. 1, heptathlon (track and field)
  • Shane O’Neill: Pro Skater (skateboarding)
  • Mo Farah: Olympic Gold Medalist: 5,000M/10,000M (track and field)
  • Allyson Felix:  Olympic Gold Medalist: 200M/4x100M/4x400M (track and field)
  • Shelly-Anne Fraser-Pryce: Olympic gold medalist,100M (track and field)

Everyone Gets a Little Excited with Fiat & Viagra

Author: | Categories: Advertising, agencies, Super Bowl, TV spot | (1 Comment)

Screen Shot 2015-06-20 at 4.47.18 PM

So I’ve wanted to write about this  advertisement for quite some time now but just haven’t got around to it. There are some ads that try to fake you out with what they’re trying to advertise and this is a great example of that. Then starts out by showing a young (at heart) couple where the wife is “ready to go-Pun intended.” The husband excitedly runs to the restroom to take a little blue pill. But, alas he accidentally drops it out the window and it goes for a ride through the city.

At the and of the tumbling journey of the blue pill it was swallowed by the The Fiat 500X which made the car bigger, stronger and faster. Oh, and let’s not forget obviously it’s ready for action. The commercial progresses everyone who comes in contact with the car gets a little excited too.

This commercial was a product of theThe Richards Group which reportedly shot the spot in Pitigliano, Tuscany according to Adfreak.  that agency did a wonderful job filling the spot and of course picking the location. But, this file does take the viewer required a loop. When I started watching it I thought it was definitely advertising Viagra and not a rocket on four wheels.

I’ll say this again as I said it many times before: sex sells no matter what products you’re selling. What you guys think? Did you always know that this spot was advertising a car? Let me know in the comments below.

Provoking Images

Author: | Categories: Creative, Magazine | (No Comments)

Hi World,

I recently read a Foreign Policy Magazine article that discussed Saudi Arabia and building weapons technology but that isn’t the main point of this post. my question is why does the image (the attention her of the magazine) have to be so negative? Particularly because Saudi Arabia as a country has never engaged in such activity.

Provoking Images But seeing this image without any context enables people to make harsh and unfair judgments without understanding the real issues. It conjures up hate among mankind and I think with the holy month of Ramadan upon us we should a little more to promote love and understanding. But what do I know? The side of says the magazine has the responsibility to its parent company.

United Passions – Awesome

Author: | Categories: Advertising, movies, Sports | (2 Comments)

I want to see the movie United Passions last night and contrary to my earlier point it turned out to be an awesome movie. The feature is the docudrama about the history and development of FIFA. Featured below is the trailer  that I’m sure most of you seen already, but wait there is more. The two production companies are Leuviah Films & Thelma Films and they received a majority of their funding from FIFA.

FIFA has full control over production and used it to make themselves seem like one of the greatest organizations in the world. What I don’t understand is why are people mad at them for this? FIFA is a business and it has an obligation to steak holders. Is there corruption? Probably.  but I mean really, what do you expect?  There is big money involved.

And nobody can deny that FIFA is responsible for spreading the beautiful game throughout the world.

ITA Getting into Movie Trailers

Author: | Categories: Advertising, Art, movies | (No Comments)

Earlier today I took a photo of the Jurassic Park movie poster plastered all over my neighborhood. I did that with the intention of talking about how Inside That Ad plans  to feature more movie trailers as part of its regular updates.  Movie trailers are a form of advertising for movie. In fact, the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a movie trailer as “a selected group of scenes that are shown to advertise a movie” So, I figured it would be fair game for this blog to discuss. Below is trailer for the latest addition to the Jurassic Park series “Jurassic World.”

What Happened to

Author: | Categories: Advertising, agencies, Creative | (No Comments) has changed significantly since the last time I tried to use it seriously back when I was living in Boston. I wanted to ask the community out there, why this change happened? What you guys think about it? Do you guys the site got better or worse since making the transformation?

I remember it as being a simple website, with a plain look, feel and login that was very appealing to me. That appeal stemmed from knowing of a site where I can look up agencies based on size, specialty, billing ranges and most importantly to me location so that I can submit my resume to open positions. Now, the site doesn’t appear to be so simple to navigate through. It has so many sections and functioned very poorly while I was trying to use it in Google Chrome that I’m surprised no one else has complained. Furthermore, I submitted another registration form and tried to contact some sort of support department because I wasn’t getting the confirmation email to complete the registration to allow me to use the site but I haven’t heard anything back. Has anyone else experienced the same type of problem?

Back when this blog was on I used a list agency compile as an advertising related resource. But these days, I don’t know if I would do the same thing on this blog should I ever build another advertising resource page. What’s the community think about the new site design? Have you all experienced the same types of problems?

It will be great if we could start a conversation about the site. Leave your comments and feedback below in the comments section.
