Time Warner Cable Goes ‘Crazy’

Ogilvy and Mather NY’s latest spot for Time Warner Cable Sportscast, “Crazy,” directed by David Gray, asks if it’s crazy to love football so much that you do things that might be a little…unusual.

The simple :33 spot highlights a series of super-fan behaviors as a humorous way to advertise how missing a game is what would really make you crazy. The spot may have been more effective if they had went a little further out there with the “crazy” fan behaviors though, as most of them are pretty tame. The touchdown dance one, in particular, could have been replaced with something a little “crazier.” A lot of people don’t know how to dance.

Wearing the same outfit every game day? Setting up your daughter’s Brownie troop in shotgun formation? Growing a lucky beard?

No, Time Warner, that’s not crazy. But accidentally broadcasting porn on a children’s channel is. Credits after the jump. Read more

Steak ‘n Shake Deals May Bring Out Your Gluttonous Side

Call it a restaurant, diner or whatever you will, but as we’ve said before, Steak ‘n Shake was a late-night blessing during those hazy days of college. Though it’s been 10 years or so since our last visit to one of their locations (plus, we can’t even find one close by anymore), we’re not sure if these new ads from KBS+P have us ready to wax nostalgic just yet. Still, it’s hard to complain, if you’re starvin like marvin, about $3.99 all-you-can-eat pancakes as promoted in the ad called “Tear” above.

Besides, there’s only so far you can go when promoting a restaurant chain’s deals and we think these executions are somewhat of an improvement over what Zimmerman put forth during their time with Steak ‘n Shake. KBS+P, if you recall, took over the account in March. See two more deal-promoting spots and credits after the jump.
