“The Web is what you make of it.”

This new commercial from Google Chrome is so heartfelt, love it.  It yanks the emotion right from your soul.  I am seriously considering doing this for my own children someday… or some version of this.  The idea of writing to my children from day 1.  Although by the time they grow up, not sure if email will still be an option, things move so flippin’ fast these days.

Ad of the Day

12 Jan

Zappos.com: More than Shoes! | mullen.com.

The Ad of the day courtesy of Mullen.

This is a classic example of Extreme Inversion.  A bit drafty, eh?  This ad falls under the Extreme family in the creativity tools.  Zappos focuses on what would happen if you DIDN’T have the product…in a crazy, over-the-top way of course. (duh, extreme?)  Zappos shows the benefits lost rather than the product.
