Beso entre las mascotas de Burger King y McDonald's

The passionate kiss between Burger King and McDonald’s for Helsinki Pride day.

Many times we have spoken in the advertising agency telling about the different advertising strategies of Burger King and McDonald’s. Burger King uses a more hooligan tactic by attacking McDonald’s while it tries to go its own advertising path.

Nike’s commercial: “You Can’t Stop Us” is one of the adverts of the year.

You Can't Stop Us | Nike

Nike surprises us again with a split-screen ad titled “You Can’t Stop Us”.

Sometimes advertising surprises you again, makes you believe again and makes you fall in love again. There are advertising campaigns that mark a before and after and inspire those who see them. That is the art of advertising, convince yourself in 30, 60 or 90 seconds and change a bit of yourself. For great inspirational advertising campaigns we have many examples: “Think Different” by Apple, “For the human race” by Coca-Cola or “Thank You Mom” by P&G. But if there is any brand that takes advertising campaigns to another level, that is Nike.

At the advertising agency we are fans of the work done by the Wieden + Kennedy agency, in charge of Nike’s campaigns. A brand that has had advertising as a substantial axis of its expansion in the world. We all remember that fantastic “Good vs Evil” with Eric Cantona or the famous “Airport” with the Brazilian team.

More recently, it has continued to surprise us with campaigns such as “Air”, which was chosen as the best ad of 2018 by our agency, or “Dream Further”, in which the plea in favor of women’s football became stronger than ever. Today, Nike has surpassed itself again with a spectacular announcement of the best campaign of the year.

Google’s commercial to find famous movie scenarios

Anuncio de Google | Find Your Scene

Google’s commercial for the Oscars invites us to find famous movie scenarios.

The time when Google did not advertise has been forgotten. Immersed in a battle for the hardware of their products with Amazon, Microsoft and Apple, they must explain the benefits of their products. And they do it through their applications, which for so long have been creating, updating and optimizing.

This battle is also fought when marketing and advertising. We have seen how in the Super Bowl commercials, Google introduced us to how its voice manager worked with Loretta’s endearing commercial. Now he does the same to promote Google Maps and show people how much match he can get.

Anuncio de Budweiser | Rock is Alive

“Rock is alive” is the Budweiser commercial to show us that Rock is more alive than ever.

Rock does not seem to live one of its best moments. The boom of the late 70s, the 80s and 90s gives all the impression that has already passed. Bands no longer sound in the radio formulas, which have turned towards more commercial, electronic and folk music. The old great bands are more interested in performing concerts before they release albums. And we do not blame him, after all they have already done their part of the work.

Are the groups formed since 2000 who are finding it difficult to find their site. The new streaming platforms have marked the passage and with them the appearance of “fast food” music, playlist songs that do not have much more journey.
