UPDATE: this just appeared in the comments section, but I wouldn’t want you to miss it.
Diabetes, here I come!
Someone’s been watching:
That. Is. Special.
You’d think more companies would (officially) embrace the NSFW possibilities of online/YouTube/Vine (etc.) advertising.
Forgive my ignorance, but is it regulated in the same way as TV advertising? If not, more like this.
Shit. It is identical to a new launch we’re doing for P&G. Even the puppet-to-jar humping scene. All that work and qualitative customer-facing research for nothing. Man this job sucks.
I’m confused. Andros, are you saying that the Biscoff thing is like the Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared thing?
Ed – yep, the same regulatory guidelines apply to digital as traditional video channels. That wasn’t always the case, but it is now.
Biscoff thing is ace.
What the fuck are you blithering on about?
Get back to trawling YouTube.
The Biscoff ad is pure genius. I have watched it over 20 times now and it still has me in stitches.
The idea, the shock factor, everything about it. This could do to the ad industry what Robocop did to the film industry.
That second vid was annoying and wasted some of my life.
I like the second vid. It sneaks up on you.
I think the idea of something that seems innocent and kiddy suddenly turning dark and batshit is not a new one.
Here is the best example of it:
Excellent Teddy Bear video. Maybe I was a little harsh on that other video but that kind of singing drives me nuts and it takes too long just to have a little bit of a psychotic episode at the end. More biscoff please!
Some Old Guy and Gout-Legs – sorry, what is confusing about saying it feels like they’ve watched ‘Don’t hug me I’m scared’? It’s puppets. It starts off fun. It goes to shit. Just like this comment section thanks to your inane comments.
Right I’m off to see how many more million hits my latest film’s got on YouTube.
I found the Teddy Video impossibly moving. It’s marvellous. My crotch unicorn is very happy now.
Utter shit Andros. They are really nothing like each other, and you got called on your implied ‘bin dun’ bullshit. Go back to your spec book and rustle us up a couple more facebook apps while I’m off for my lunch.
hee hee – Andros owned.
Surely they’re both by the same people. C’mon.
Some Old Guy – I just explained how they are similar.
PUPPETS GOING FROM HAPPY TO DARK AS FUCK.
VERY SIMILAR VIBES.
You make no argument to explain otherwise. Unconstructive bullshit.
Interestingly, doing spec work as well as award winning proper stuff has just got me into one of the best agencies in London. Whilst you’re stuck tossing yourself at Golley KittKatt & Friends.
Andros, you sound really nice. I bet you get on great. Well done.
PS I might be your new boss.
Wait wait…let me get some popcorn. It’s SOG vs Andros tonight on fight night!
I have no idea how anyone could not think these two are very closely related. But who really gives a shit?
Oh dear, all getting a bit aggro here.
don’t really understand the copycunt connection. both have puppets with a dark story, i think it’s been done many times. plus the “…into one of the best agencies in London” was one of the lamest comments ever made.
