The advert, created by TBWA/G1 Paris, creates scratches in the paintwork of the car as users try to swipe through the ad, which then repair themselves.
Very clever use of the swipe motion that people use whilst browsing to highlight another innovation.
Watch the ad in action below.

The concept, created by DraftFCB Chicago, uses American colloquialisms of shipping instead of delivery, and of course pants instead of trousers.
Whilst only currently being shown on YouTube, the video has in a short time gained close to 10 million views, which could be enough for the company to decide to give it some air time on main-stream television.
The whole add is very much a clever play on words, all the while bordering on profanity, so be careful about putting the volume too loud!
Take a look at the ad below and let us know what you think.

San Francisco based start-up company Mobeam has patented technology that will allow barcodes to be scanned from Smartphone screens at checkouts.
The point-of-sale possibilities are endless for coupons and other far more fun advertising promotions. Plus, it is better than replacing every checkout scanner in the world.
To promote the technology, Portal A created this heavily Auto-Tuned supermarket musical, in which a frustrated cashier bursts into song over the wonders of Mobeam. It includes an obligatory rap, a talking fish and a dancing janitor. The video is silly in the extreme.
This, however, is not an app you can download, it is a technology targeted at businesses to add to their apps. And the reason for this? Modern phone screens are too high definition for normal barcode scanners to read, so the technology sends signals via an LED to the scanner to ‘trick’ it into thinking it is reading a normal barcode.
Whilst the technology will only appeal to developers and advertisers, the video will appeal to everyone. Watch it below.

It is all very surreal, the voice over stating "It may seem a little strange to some, but for us free range is the only way to raise bread,"
Even on their Facebook page they state, "We like to shower our loaves with love, let them roam free and grow up in their own unique little way. It's what makes every loaf special."
It would seem that they want to come across as a speciality or artisan style baker, producing 'farmhouse' style breads, all the while taking time and care to produce a better tasting product, even if it does bleat at you and jump around the room!
Take a look at the advert below.

Thailand has launched a very thought provoking anti-smoking ad which points out the hypocrisy of smokers when approached by a child who asks them for a light.
Every smoker the child approached tried to persuade him not to smoke and how dangerous to his health it is.
The child finishes the stunt by handing the smoker a leaflet explaining their hypocrisy.
The ad received more than 960,000 views before being taken down but it has now reappeared again.
Please view it below and let us know what you think.

This ad for BMW Canada, set to classical piano music, features some fantastic slow motion film that sees the super-fast M5 smashing through a series of objects.
The result according to their YouTube channel - 'High Performance Art'.
We can only agree - definitely one for cultured petrol-heads.
Ad created by Cundari, Toronto

Sandals with brown socks, ride on lawn mowers, Disney videos and BBQ's - all part of Dad's Life, an ad for American Greetings.
Celebrating Father's Day with four 'super cool' rapping dads is one not to be missed.
Who said dads can't dance, or rap for that matter.

This fun ad for Jersey Tourism combines video with animation in a real feel good format. A bit surreal at times but that adds to the charm.
It starts with a bored businessman being pulled into a colourful poster at a bus stop and then takes you on a tour around Jersey, From gorillas to the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland this certainly challenges the standard holiday ad treatment of beaches and sunshine - although the gorilla is seen heading off into the sunset on a golden beach with a surfer girl.
Definitely adds colour to your day - great work. See below or click this link.

For all you rugby fans out there - or anyone who fancies a bit of a laugh - take a look at this ad for HSBC created by JWT London.
It promotes HSBC's sponsorship of the 2012 Hong Kong Sevens and sees teams dressed in fancy dress playing rugby through Hong Kong's streets.
Legionaires take on elves and cowboys take on samarai.
High powered and very exciting. Enjoy.
