If HAL pissed you off in 2001, watch this.

From McCann-Erickson, Madrid.

I guess they run 2 and-a-half minute commercials over there. This is better than some TV shows!

Sony scores.

You can see this one coming a mile away, but nice production values and little kids actually playing soccer make this spot memorable.

The power of music

Video trailers are like movie trailers, only harder to make interesting. The dark, moody soundtrack on this one matches the visuals perfectly. That's why it becomes so compelling to watch.

Once again, music is everything in advertising.

Are you fucking kidding me?

Tiger's back. Talking to the gallery. Smiling occasionally. And looking real sincere in this insincere ad from Nike.

Watch quickly. They've already pulled it off of YouTube.

Hey, maybe the Mini really IS a chick car...

Hmmmm. The ad also seems to feature Chris Farley and David Spade sorta lookalikes.

Well, that didn't take long...

Chatroulette is the newest social media craze where you can take your chances and go online and get hooked up (via webcam) with...well, anyone in the world.

Didn't take long for marketers to crash the party. But in this case, as an April Fool's gag, it's exactly what marketers do best (and in this case, best they not do it more than a day!).

Kudos to Dr. Pepper for getting there first.
