W+K Kickstarts Dodge Dart

W+K’s line of Dodge ads appeals to consumers with a distinct voice that separates the brand from most  auto manufacturers hawking new models. By now, we all know the recipe: frenetic cuts, clean white text, VO that tries too hard to be cool, and the loop from “No Church in the Wild.” The commercials run so often,  you almost forget that the song used to belong to Jay, Ye, and Frank Ocean. I doubt any of them drive Dodge Darts.

But for those of us who want to drive Dodge Darts, the latest spot, titled “How to Change Buying Cars Forever,” details a clever crowdfunding pitch meant to make new cars a little more affordable. Interested buyers can design their own Dart online and set a funding goal for family and friends who want to purchase individual parts as gifts. Mom and Dad get the steering wheel, your brother covers the leather seats, etc.

And if you’re getting married, the Dodge Dart Registry throws a nice wrench in the department store marital registry monopoly. Nobody wants a new toaster. Credits after the jump.

Cutwater, Corddry Try to Bring Brotherhood Back to Gaming

Cutwater SF presents these new “viral” videos starring Hot Tub Time Machine‘s Rob Corddry for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood- the latest addition to the developer’s franchise.

The spots directed by Station Film’s Harold Einstein mark a notable departure from the usual clip-filled Assassin’s Creed promos and since competitive gamers usually bicker regardless of the what they’re playing, it was a good strategy by Cutwater to exploit that human truth. Corddry, sporting a Peter Brady wig to go along with his patented funny asshole attitude,  attempts an open dialogue with his buddies above.  The Youtube channel that was created for the promotion of Brotherhood basically serves as the hub of the campaign. You can view more clips and credits after the jump.
