We all have to start somewhere in our careers. For some of us it’s answering a phone, scrubbing down a bar or pumping over some fermenting wine. It’s a part of life which, unless you strike it lucky, we all have to deal with. Often times it means sucking up a bit of pride and do something which is piss-boring and a waste of our time in our opinion. But that’s how it goes. Even big shot celebrities like Brad Pitt, Matt LeBlanc, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Affleck, Tina Fey and Meg Ryan had to slog it when they were no bodies. The problem with their slogging was that it involved them acting in shitty commercials, punting brands like McDonalds, Burger King, Pringles and some sort of haemorrhoid cream. Shame. But look where they’ve ended up.
This is a pure class, classically Kiwi, beer advert and it’s gold! Pure gold I tell ya! I haven’t seen advertising like this since ages ago and although the advert has been around for some time, anything which possesses this
level of class deserves a mention on The Noblest Rogue. It’s 45 seconds of pure enjoyment, so do yourself a favour.
What is the point of a 30 second advert which sees a company try to throw as much information at the viewer as possible in as short a time as possible? Why not flesh it out? That’s why I love this type of advertising. If you have a premium product – which JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL is – a 30 second short won’t do your product justice. In this short film/advert, JOHNNIE WALKER have again aligned their luxury BLUE LABEL with the gentleman in all of us. They’ve created a scenario which we strive to achieve and yet kept the honour of it. The short film stars Jude Law and that Italian guy who acted in ‘Casino Royal’ that one time.
I bought a surfboard over a year ago and told myself that I would get back into the water. I consider myself a water-baby and have loved everything to do with the ocean and beach since I can remember. Summer for me is the beach. Yet for some reason I have only made use of that surfboard two times since purchasing it. I can’t seem to find the motivation to get into the water. What’s funny is that I want to surf. I want to develop another sporting pastime. It’s almost like I want to surf but haven’t committed to learning to surf yet. But we all need to start somewhere. We all need to take our baby steps. Perhaps I should make a commitment to you that I will be surfing by summer? Let me dwell on that commitment before I confirm it. This Samsung advert sums up where I am and where I’d like to be.
