The Best Ad-Related Videos of the Week

Is this thing on? That was a *taps mic* joke. It wasn’t funny, but since no one is here to not laugh at it, it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that this is the last year of life on earth. That means that at the ripe old age of 236 years (someone fact check that), the USA has passed its last Independence Day. No, Bill Pullman, July 4th will not soon become the world’s Independence Day. So, to stave off your newfound depression caused by the knowledge that the earth is going to die in December, here’s some distracting semi-ad related videos. Of the week.

5.  The BBC used to be primarily used as a wartime alternative to warm milk, lulling young children to sleep as bombed dropped all around their grimy bunkers. Today it’s a rock-n-roll organization known the world over for their coverage of stuff, including Formula 1.

The Best Ad-Related Videos of the Week

Welcome to the week’s best addish videos, where we scour the web for examples of well-done promotional things. Here, you may find advertisements, or you may find things that will just waste time but are funny. You don’t care, as long as you’re entertained. These are not the droids you’re looking for. This week, learn what life on Mars will be like and see what happens when a Transformer walks through the Staples Center (place sucks anyway, amirite?). And more.

 

7. In this clip, “Right Wingers” means something different than we ‘murikans are accustomed to. In Germany, it refers to neo-Nazis and such. Here’s a little case video explaining how ExitDeutschland pranked a bunch of RWers, and at the same time gave them a resource for ending hate. They must have gotten some hate mail for this stunt, so let’s give ED some love by watching how they did it.

 

6. Transformers! Now it’s a ride, which makes a certain amount of sense. Since the line for that puppy will be longer than Optimus Prime’s ‘oil release tube’, here’s a looksee at how the Hasbro dudes launched the thing.
