John West Salmon Bear
It is not in vain that this ad became one of the earliest internet viral. Starting out tame, the ad shows a group of bears catching salmon in a river. Things change with john west starting a fight with one of the bears. The fisherman then confuses the bear with an imaginary eagle only to hit it in the balls. Attracting over 300 million views made the advert one of the most successful of its time, an envy for most free classified ads today.
John smiths Wardrobe monsters
Paul silburn’s script shows Kaye enjoying a meal with his friends and wife. The daughter then calls after waking from her sleep due to the fear of monsters in her wardrobe. He cautions her against forced armed robbers instead.
Orange Gold Spot
The advert shows film executives interrupting snoop dog in the middle of his rap. The suggestion for him to focus on less sexual content and more on phone calls results in a standoff. This sees the executive doing the rap himself in a suit.
Black Currant Tango
Starting out in a corporate video style, Gardner reads a letter then leaves the office with some employees to a boxing match. The genius behind the ad makes it appear in one take yet it was shot in three.
Carlton Beer Chase
