Berocca 50+ “Performance yes, Miracles no” TV ad


Seeing this again still makes me grin and reminds me of why The Campaign Palace was such an innovative agency.

A tongue in cheek dig at the greying market and with a tone of voice and execution that makes it memorable.

Relevant, interesting and perhaps more motivating than the usual dreary in-kitchen vitamin taking to look after the Grand-kids sort of approach.

Great work from the now closing Campaign Palace. Palace chief creative officer Reed Collins:

“In the all too dreary world of pharmaceutical advertising Berocca really stands out. The new Berocca Focus 50+ campaign is refreshingly honest for the category and it’s audience.”

For those of us a touch tired with the cliched snow and ice imagery that drives the snow and ice based Olympics at us….the BBC trailer presents an interesting alternative.

Not sure what the coverage will be like though…

Logorama – Trailer.

Logorama the movie has been nominated for Best Animated Short Film at The Academy Awards 2010.

The work features more than 2,500 logos, includes spectacular car chases, an intense hostage crisis, wild animals rampaging through the city and is a chocolate box of brands in every shape and form.

Even those who aren’t a little bit brand centric will appreciate the art.
