[Spoof] Coca Cola Train

Wed, 06 Aug 2008 14:31:33 PDT

brand: Coca Cola/ Coke
agency: Rofilco (see another creation here)
what's supposed to be catchy: the original Italian - German conversation of characters is replaced with one between a roman citizen and an inhabitant of con-quested Dacia. The name of soccer players were replaced with Latin expressions and words in Romanian supposed to be of Dacian origin. And the parody doesn't stop here...

Delaco and the Mafia

Mon, 21 Apr 2008 07:46:06 PDT

agency: don't know yet
received: April 21st, 2008
message: TV commercial, second episode of 'Delaco sta bine pe cascaval' campaign.
what's supposed to be catchy: the super is "delaco sta bine pe cascaval" wich in Romanian slang can be translated approximatelly as 'delaco has plenty of bucks', speculating the cascaval alternative meanings of cheese and money.
the thing: links to YouTube locations of the commercials.

my comment: the campaign includes also a blog of Toni Delaco (which reminds me of Tony Soprano) a fictional mafioso character... Not my favorite approach but I admire these guys for trying to integrate new media in their campaigns.(image)

Irinel and Monica strikes back: French Toast

Wed, 18 Jul 2007 10:04:41 PDT

brand: French Toast/Vel Pitar
agency: Next Advertising, Bucharest
creative director: Liviu David
recieved: 18 July 2007
message: "material for your blog"
what's supposed to be catchy: The characters in the commercial are Irinel Columbeanu and Monica (his whife now). You can see another explanatory posts here and here. The copy: As many slices, So many possibilities. (I will review the translation later).
the thing: a YouTube link. See below the embed.

my comment: for sure the commercial is viral. I think is a very good execution. I will not comment if this execution is suitable for the French Toast brand or not. It seems that the commercial reached the internet by "mistake"... Hm! I know some guys who will not agree.

Ikea: Freedom

Tue, 08 May 2007 04:38:04 PDT

brand: Ikea
agency:I don't know
recieved: 8 May 2007
message: pour le connaisseurs
what's supposed to be catchy: i don't knoy, it didn't caught me
the thing: a .mpeg

(object) (embed)

my comment: the super is 'if it cost less you can work less'. The viral character of this commercial for Romanians can be identified only if you relate it with an very 'advertised' event which took place several days ago in Romania, when a girl (Raluca Stroescu) was found dead in her apartment; Romanian media speculated that the cause of death was exhaustion caused by exagerated work. But this association is quite morbid, isnt'it?(image)

Yale: locks breaking contest

Tue, 17 Apr 2007 13:08:00 PDT

brand: Yale/ Assa Abloy
agency: Graffiti BBDO (post related on their blog: here)
recieved: 17 April 2007
message: Promo Yale
what's supposed to be catchy: the copy of the ad - "We are working with real professionals" vs. the 'professionals' in the image, which are 'The Research and Testing Department'. Also, the 'job description' in the the job opening ad for 'Lock Tester' (second image which I suppose it comes always together with the first) describes best a very good burglar:
- minimum 5 years imprisonment for burglary (repeatedly imprisonment is considered a plus);
- 'street-school' graduated;
- Romanian resident (interdiction for leaving the country is considered a plus);

the thing: two attached images
Image one:
Image two:
my comment: The ad is pretty viral, but I think they originally made it for print and/or outdoor.

The word 'yale' (in the Romanian phonetically pronunciation) became almost a common noun, and stands for the 'modern door-locks'. You know, as 'adidas', 'xerox' and so on.(image)

olimpiadele comunicarii: naumovici vs capanescu

Thu, 05 Apr 2007 08:01:17 PDT

brand: olimpiadele comunicarii
agency: Leo Burnett Romania
recieved: saw it on many blogs (i.e. here, here and here)
message: 'Think at the mental health of the jury members. Think twice before enroll!'
what's supposed to be catchy: both ads parodiates two campaigns which run in the past year. The main characters in the ads are members of "Olimpiadele Comunicarii" (Communication Olympic Games) contest and are creative directors at two Romanian agencies (Leo Burnett and Publicis). You can see the full campaign details here.

what's supposed to be catchy: the copy "men don't want to look at naked men" describes it best;

my comment: the campaign seems very good, even is not made for romania; these guys 'see' the essence: you shouldn't sell men products with naked men isn't it? but what you do if the product is men underwear?!(image)

the thing:
(object) (embed)
my comment:according to zoso, the video is attached to a mail message signd by the president of Rosal, Silviu Prigoana. The text in Romanian:

Buna ziua!
Un click dreapta cu mouse-ul pe attachment, selectare “Play with Media Player” si veti vedea ca Rosal Grup continua in forta si prin mijloace audio-video campania de eradicare a “gunoaielor” (altfel spus, educarea populatiei Romaniei in spiritul pastrarii curateniei). Va atragem atentia asupra faptului ca serviciile de salubritate stradala consuma bani de la bugetul de stat. Mai putine gunoaie aruncate la intamplare pe strazi inseamna activitate de curatenie mai putin intensa si, implicit, costuri mai mici pentru primariile localitatilor tarii. Inseamna reorientarea de fonduri catre alte prioritati – drumuri, parcuri, canalizare etc. Contam pe complicitatea dumneavoastra! ‘Cititi’ si dati mai departe!

Pentru conformitate, cu stima,
Silviu Prigoana,
Presedinte Rosal Grup

my comment: OK, it is about Denmark, but it seems that the 'virus' crossed borders; the movie is made on viral basis, and if you want to know more (although is nothing more to find out), visit the site and put the movie on your blog or send-it via e-mail.(image)

what's supposed to be catchy:chat and forum vs simple and old fashion life of romanian villagers;
the thing: a .mpeg

my comment: i think they made it; the name of characters are very traditional and tipical for a romanian village-woman. the contrast with the terms like chat and forum is huge. also, the cow name, 'joiana' is almost a sinonime with the word 'cow'.(image)
