Changing the world. One blog(ger) at a time.

Are other Aussies as stuck on this ad as I am?!

Yeah sure, it’s full of cuties having fun in their underwear, but I’d like to hope my addiction to this TV ad has more depth to it than that! I think it’s a combination of the music which is quirky and catchy, the fast editing which gives it great pace, the obvious fun the girls are having, which is a delight to watch, and the cool choreography.

Whatever it is, I’m a brand/marketing guy who is not easily impressed, but this one makes me happy whenever it comes on TV. And I can even remember what the product is: Bonds Kaleidoscope briefs.

But alas, it seems to have been pulled. Campaign over. At least we still have the YouTube copies, the Bonds campaign page with a full-screen version and behind-the-scenes stuff, and Marina Gasolina by Bonde do Role, the song from the ad.

(I also reckon it’s kind of funny that this ad was shot in a church hall. Where was the vicar that day, I wonder?! Mouahahaha!)

    Definitely a catchy video, with a poppy but strange upbeat tune I coul easily see getting stuck in my head. And who knows? The ad being pulled man be a boon to the company which will get secondary advertising via YouTube 😉

    reminds me of a Dr. Seuss quote:

    “If you never did,
    you should.
    These things are fun
    and fun is good.”

    Advertisers can do any trick to promote their business and this is one of them. Making people go crazy along with their brand awareness.
