D&G Channels Spirit of Bay, Bruckheimer in Kia Super Bowl Spot

David&Goliath nixes the Yo Gabba Gabba gang and Heavy soundtrack in favor of a CGI-addled extravaganza starring everyone from Poseidon and aliens to tribal warriors with its 2011 Super Bowl entry for Kia and its Optima line.

Really though, is there any chance in hell the agency/brand can triumph over last year’s spot? We think not, though at least a cameo from the animated crew could suffice.  Oh well. You can be the judge and the wait for the USA Ad Meter on Monday to see how it fared.

D-Wade Again Mimics Bond in Latest ‘Dominate’ Nike Effort

W+K New York tries to top its already over-the-top “Dominate Another Day” campaign starring one of the Miami Heat’s “Big Three,” Dwyane Wade, with this latest spot called “The Escape.” Here, D-Wade is trapped in the diabolical clutches of the Zen Master (perhaps a jab at Phil Jackson?) and is being chastised by his buddy Specialist H for being late to his holiday party. Wade of course escapes and battles through snakes and ninjas before eventually blowing up the joint on his way out. Someone page Michael Bay or the Wachowskis.

LeBron can keep asking his rhetorical questions while his buddy plays superhero in this latest Jordan Brand advert, which was directed by the always less-than-modest Noam Murro and features music from Nine Inch Nails cohort Atticus Ross (who’s nominated along with Trent Reznor for a Golden Globe for The Social Network soundtrack).

Full credits after the jump.

Paper Doll Stars in Latest AT&T Spot

The Christo-inspired curtains have fluttered away and in their place is an orange paper cutout character in this latest AT&T spot, aptly titled “Paper Dolls,” from BBDO and director Noam Murro. The character, which kind of reminds us of the AIM logo, travels the globe for work ala Clooney in Up in the Air, but is less weary and never too far from home and family as long as it has AT&T coverage, which the telecom giant continues to insist takes care of 97% of Americans.

Even without a face or a specific character in the piece, the business traveler could easily sympathize with the narrative. It’s just a refreshing way to depict John or Jane Doe in a TV spot. Who needs celebrities when you have this? Credits after the jump.
