One of Saturday Night Live’s best sketches of the past season was the spoof of Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein Ads with Kate McKinnon as The Biebs. SNL knows this was pure gold, so they just released the outtakes (above)… and they’re just as funny and ridiculous as the original sketch (below).
Arby’s decided to take
lemons roast beef and make lemonade a brilliant move of viral marketing.
See Mark Ruffalo in a 1989 Clearasil Commercial
His struggle with bad acne was so real that he went on to become The Hulk!
WATCH the 2015 Super Bowl Commercials!
A lot of this year’s Super Bowl commercials have already been released, and I was gonna embed them all here… but there’s so many that it was gonna take forever for this post to load. SO… go check out the list that Variety compiled.
If you’d like to go back in time, go check out last year’s spots, too.
WATCH This ADORABLE new Budweiser Super Bowl commercial featuring a Clydesdale and Puppy
It’s a sequel of sorts to last year’s commercial… and it WILL make you cry a good cry.
If you don’t remember last year’s spot, here it is (again):
WATCH Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Martin Scorsese, and Brad Pitt on screen together…
…in a COMMERCIAL for a new resort in Macau, China… and they reportedly got paid $10 million EACH to be in this thing. But when a resort costs 3.2 BILLION to build, a $70 million commercial is a drop in the bucket.
Will Ferrell / Ron Burgundy did 70 (yes, SEVENTY) commercials for Dodge Durango
This is brilliance in marketing where everybody wins: Dodge wants to hire a big movie star to do their ad campaign, but they don’t have the budget of Ford or Chevy. Paramount Pictures wants to promote the hell out of Anchorman 2, but doesn’t wanna take the gamble on spending the money for a huge ad campaign because comedy sequels don’t often do as well at the box office as action sequels. The solution: Will Ferrell (as Ron Burgundy) did 70 commercials for the Dodge Durango. Dodge pays for the production of the commercials and buys the advertising time, and Paramount gets 70 different commercials to showcase why people thought Ron Burgundy was so funny in the first place.
Above is one of the 70 commercials, there are more here (and if you find others, please feel free to shoot me a message through Facebook or Twitter).
