One of the most effective ways to get customers to pay attention to a particular company is to create engaging commercials. These can be funny or serious, but they should excite and entertain people enough for them to want to know more about a company. In 2015, there were a number of amusing commercials that were truly set apart from the rest. We talk about some of the best ones below.
Budweiser Superbowl Ad
As usual Budweiser created an unforgettable commercial for the Superbowl. This year, it featured a Labrador puppy that lost his Clydesdale friend. The reason this ad works so well is because it is not only touching but it is also reminiscent of epic stories like Homeward Bound. It is great for children and adults, alike.
Furever Friends by Google
This ad also features animals, but this time an orangutan and his best friend, a dog. It is touching and gets the message of the product they are trying to sell without taking over the sweet story. The simplicity of the ad is one of the reasons why it was shared so much across media platforms.
Coca-Cola Superbowl Ad
Coca-Cola spreads a message of hope with this commercial, in which the drink spills onto a console, hacks into the world’s data servers and shares its anti-bullying and peaceful message. It is amusing to watch as well as inspiring, making it a favorite among all age ranges.
Shiseido’s High School Girl
This ad was created by the Japanese company of Shiseido, and it tackles gender and what it means to be a young woman. It is a work of art that does a great job not only of showing what their makeup products can do but also of trying to bring a message of unity to the world.
Snicker’s The Brady Bunch
This commercial is one of the funniest of the year. It takes its “you are not you” trope and brings it to the next level of comedy by casting Danny Trejo as Marcia and Steve Buscemi as Jan Brady. It has great comedic timing, making it one of the best of the year.
Geico creates a commercial using the unskippable ads of YouTube as an inspiration. It is hilarious to watch, features a dog, and is suitable for all ages. Its tongue-in-cheek style turns it into one of the most watched commercials this year.
All of these commercials were immensely popular this year, helping their brands’ names and creating new customers. A bit of comedy and a bit of heart makes all of these must-watch ads.
