Ready for a little break from the barrage of holiday advertising? I am, and I like advertising. I was hoping I’d find a few holiday-themed ads to share, but then I realized, the most entertaining and memorable ad I’ve seen this season wasn’t a holiday ad at all.
It was a Jack-in-the-Box ad, and I just about fell out of my chair when I saw it. Haven’t seen it yet? Take 30 seconds to view it now.
The casting was perfect. And isn’t that the best butt-cut you’ve seen since 1982. Sweet.
Although I don’t eat there, if I skip a Jack-in-the-Box ad with my TiVo, I’ll boop-boop-boop back to it. There are a few advertisers I will consistently do that for. VW. Apple. Even some Bud ads some of the time.
Sure, I don’t drive a VW. I have a few Apple products but I haven’t switched from my Dell PCs, nor will I anytime soon. And I haven’t had a Bud in 20 years (I prefer Guinness).
But advertising that entertains is advertising that gets your attention and drives word-of-mouth.
So, who do you think does the most entertaining ads? And other than a sales circular, can you think of an ad campaign that moved you enough to go out and purchase something recently?
I’d love to hear about it.
