NBA Amazing: There can only be one campaign*

13 05 2008

As an extension to their NBA Amazing campaigns (Season/Playoffs) the NBA have now launched a full

fledged NBA 2008 Playoffs campaign themed “There can only be one!”. The ads use split screen as a basis and combines the faces of the respective signature players that are or will be competing against each other in the different heats of the playoffs.

Here is a few examples, I specifically like the “Hamilton/Iguodala”and the “Howard/Paul” ones.  

Video: NBA There can only be one  – Bryant/Boozer -0:32 min

In addition here is a clip that gives you a bit of behind the scenes…

Chevrolet: Volt Concept “Dog” TV Ad*

12 02 2008


In Detroit in 2006 GM presented the E-Flex electric propulsion technology in the Chevrolet Volt Concept. Since then they’ve been releasing communication around the technology, this concept and other concept vehicles (e.g. the Opel Flextreme).

The funniest piece of consumer driven comms that I have seen so far is the following TV ad:
