W+K Portland Looks Way Back for Nike Golf

As the golf world awaits the start of the Masters, W+K Portland takes a look back at golf history for their new Nike Golf spot — way back.

The 60-second spot, directed by Biscuit Filmworks’ Steve Rogers, begins with a player admonishing another for using Nike’s new RZN balls. From there, the spot takes leap after leap back in time, showing how each progression in the history of golf was met with great resistance. This goes all the way back to the game’s formation, leading into the tagline, “Play in the Now.” While not exactly funny, the spot gels perfectly with the tagline and silences any opposition from “traditionalists” to Nike’s RZN ball by making them seem utterly ridiculous. Stick around for credits after the jump. Read more

Credits after the jump.

Audi Does Some Spring Cleaning

Apparently, everyone in this town really reveres the Audi A7. And, what better time to do some cleaning than spring, right guys? LOL, get it? (Wink wink, nudge, nudge.)

“Spring Cleaning” is one of two new spots for Audi from Venables Bell & Partners. Along with “Car Carrier,” which advertises the Audi Q5, these new television ads paint the luxury car company as “Luxury Progressed,” and both do so in a sort of pretentious fashion. Sure, seeing an Audi cruising around your town has definitely become a much more common site as the company continues to take market share away from competitors like Mercedes-Benz and BMW. But, do the two spots really make you want to buy and Audi? Or, do they make you kind of hate Audi drivers that much more? Credits and “Car Carrier” follow after the jump.
