Yoke’s Ad-vent Calendar Brings Commercial Cheer

Australia studio Yoke recently launched it’s holiday-themed Ad-vent Calendar for the 25 days leading up to Christmas. Each day, Yoke reveals one creative ad from the past that may not be well-known to large audiences. Thus far, the curated collection includes spots for companies like Peugeot and Nolan’s Cheddar Cheese, and to totally honest, some of these ads will probably be better gifts than whatever I get from my family.

Below is the Nolan’s Cheddar spot. Don’t know how much they paid for the rights to use Jim Morrison‘s voice and Rocky theme music in the same commercial, but the money is well spent. It’s hard to make viewers empathize with rodents, but they may have found a willing co-star for the next Rocky sequel.

Today’s posted ad is a Peugeot 206 commercial from India, definitely worth a look. I must’ve missed out on the Peugeots-are-symbols-of-cool bandwagon, but the ad has a worthy narrative for the Ad-vent Calendar. Who doesn’t love the signature Indian guy head-bob?

With 13 days to go, this is a page you’ll want to bookmark for a nice reprieve from the monotony of primetime TV ads. Unless you like the T-Mobile Girl, in which case, you’ll most likely end up with coal in your stocking.
