• I like the ones you guys came up with! Here are a couple of my favorites:

    No Korean hamsters were injured in the making of these advertisements.

  • Hard to pick a favorite, but in terms of print campaigns, I've always admired old Land Rover Range Rover ads and of course most witty Porsche: No Substitute ads.

    Here's a personal favorite:

  • When I was growing up (in the '60s) I remember seeing this ad when it was new, in the winter, in New England. This was back in the day when everyone we knew owned one "big car" and a 'bug' for commuting.
    As a natural gas advocate, I'd like to run an ad in the same tone which starts with "Ever wonder where the electricity that powers a clean electric car comes from?", with shots of snow covered solar panels and parked windmills. Then a a couple of shots of a blue flame on a stove, family and friends cooking on a natural gas bbq grille. Then, follow it with a quick clip of the new gen Scirocco's racing on CNG, with the tag line. "Natural gas, it cooks your dogs and hauls your buns!". (I'm sure someone with some German skills can come up with something equally rhythmic but correct for Google's clumsy ..Erdgas es kocht Ihre bratten und schleppt Ihre Brötchen)

  • the Saab 96 commercial where they roll it down a ski slope then drive it away – can't find the video anywhere – this updated version isn't as convincing, somehow – youtube.com/watch?v=RS12LOZiu08

  • Well, I'm not sure it is "good", but it certainly is trippy:

  • From the "let's be brutally honest" school of advertising…
