DailyDirt: Duh... Ads Are Supposed To Change People's Minds

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Ads can be controversial sometimes -- designed to attract attention. Most ads catch your eye with attractive people or shocking images, but the "best" ads also stick in your mind and remind you who the actual sponsor was. We're always interested in "good" ads (not the ads that get attention for how hated they are). So here, we've found some interesting ad-related articles and videos that demonstrate how ads can be entertaining.
  • The BBC picks 6 ads that it thinks changed the world. Don't worry: "Apply directly to the forehead" didn't make the cut. [url]
  • If you could save an online banner ad for later, would you? This sounds like a really bad copy of Instapaper.... [url]
  • LEGO has made a couple interesting short films. But still, I always forget that it's not Legos. [url]
  • Can any kind of internet meme effectively sell a mobile phone? If so, let loose the CaTz of advertising. [url]
