DailyDirt: Ads Are Content
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
One of the recurring themes around here is that advertising should be engaging and entertaining, not annoying. Every year, there are excellent examples of this truism — during the halftime of the Superbowl. Some ads are easily forgotten, but some are remembered for decades (and even associated with the products they were trying to promote). Here are just a few more reminders, just in case you’re busy this coming Sunday.
- Apple’s classic “1984” superbowl ad seems to be one of the few things remembered from that game’s advertising. Who are the “drones” now? [url]
- The Sausage King of Chicago is back selling Japanese-made SUVs. Save Ferris! [url]
- Freaking people out with (fake) flying people in the skies of NYC… is supposed to get people to watch a movie? Possibly viral? Check. Is this obviously connected to the product being advertised? Uh… [url]
- To discover more interesting advertising-related content, check out what’s floating around on StumbleUpon. [url]
By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.
