Nokia Bonus - Thought Bubbles Attached to Head

So, this ad from Anima Istanbul comes in two parts. And I like the second part. First is with the male gender, second with the female.  Both of them end up thinking so much about the (old) cell phones they can get, that the thought bubbles actually adhere like a ‘fro’ to their head.  They wiggle it around and it shakes with their head.. pretty cool!

Can’t find any alts, so I got a hQ copy from Anima Istanbul right here.

I like this because how often does CG react to what an actor/actress does?

McDonalds - Tiger Action Toys (May 2001) - “Jaw Dropping”

I think I need this as a tag. “Jaw Dropping”.. Much thanks to ThatGuyWithTheVHS for posting this!

Basically, after the segment with Ronald McDonald, two kids are playing with toys named “Shelby” from Tiger electronics… Hm.. But I guess it’s so cool, the boy’s jaw drops, and he even has to pick it up

Anything that legitimizes that a “TF Happened” is cool in my book.  Can’t find any other copies.

Telkomel India - Quality Assurance - Rapid Morphing

FunkyRowanPixieVery cool ad, thank you for sharing! :D

So, in this ad, the girl who starts is also the last in a LONG, LONG cycle of morphing people!  Hair flops down, hats pop up, faces change but body doesn’t, and there’s a TON of disjointed morphing in this series.

Here’s the ad info from the TV Card:

Client: PT. Telkomsel Indonesia
Product: Quality Assurance II
Title: “1000 Wajah”
Date: April 3, 2009
Agency: MACS909
Prod. Hse: RT Films

Chuck E Cheese - Kid is actually Chuckie

FYI, I don’t know where the original at AdLand is, and I looked. :( 

Anyways, This one features a family at home with a friend..?  He takes off his human head mask and it turns out he’s actually Chuckie Cheese. He warps them to presumably the nearest location of his, where the three original kids party out.

But the disapproving mom shows up, and she’s having fun, too?  Nope, turns out she’s Chuckie, too! Weird… 

Very cool ad. In retrospect, kids want to go to this place and are willing to be kidnapped?  Badass. I’m calling it magical ride, though.

Thank you, Anon, I forgot about these!

Any alts?

Chuck E Cheese Ad - Token to Kids to Tokens

OK, so three token skeletons/stacks that are animated turn into kids and toss a token at the camera.  They have fun for most of the ad, until near the end, where they have spinning tokens for heads.  Cool! The tokens spin into toys, too..! And Chuck e Cheese turns them back into tokens.

I think this ad just tried to be a copycat, since the idea seems kinda subversive when you think about it.  Kids are only token stacks? What are they spending?

Stay for the replaced heads, though. B) (lol.)

Great ad, 100%, Anon! Thank you!

Any alts found?

T-Mobile - 2004 Science Project - Brain Switch

Another one from WhatIReallyLike.. :O 

So, in this one, a mom leaving her office gets a MMS video from her daughter about her science project in action… Working.  Her little brother’s body now scratches his ear like a dog.  And the dog talks.

Progressive Insurance - VooDoo - Castration?

Well, some guys might be into this, too. Or girls. Or whomever! :)

Though this vengeful girlfriend instead pricks her ex in the heart, forces him to punch himself in the face, and … castrates? him while they’re having an intimate moment on the couch.

Ouch. But might be up your alley? I dunno. Take a peek!

Progressive Insurance - Progressive VooDoo - Instantaneous Effect

So, this ex enacts revenge instantaneously using Progressive’s VooDoo doll app. (well, back then, it wasn’t called an App, haha.)

Anyways, this guy at a bar is dancing up some girl… FIrst, the girl sticks a needle in his thigh, gives him hot foot, and then outright shrinks his head in front of his date.  Cue shocked expression, btw. :)

Very nice one I forgot about, WhatIReallyLike! :)

Ratchet & Clank - SIze Matters - Shrink Ray

So, in this ad by Ring of Fire (Thanks, WhatIReallyLike ), three guys out late at night shrink a friend to a really small size to run into an encampment.. only to watch as a avian night predator swoops down and gets him.  Ouch.

Ratchet & Clank 3 - Spanish Ad

Nice find, WhatIReallyLike; I couldn’t find another copy of this. Maybe if I knew spanish better… :/  Anyways.. 

In this ad, two neighbor kids have a comical gun fight, shooting at each other with bigger and bigger artillery.  Until they destroy something the little sister values— her little dog’s doghouse.  So she poofs them into sheep.
