I laughed, I cried, I sighed, I smiled.
No, I'm not talking about looking at the reflexion of my manhood in the mirror.
I'm talking about The Cannes Lions Commercials. The whole experience really brought advertising to life for me. All year, Kenton has been drilling into our heads the concept of the "big idea." I think I finally get what he's been talking about. Although, I'm not too sure if even he could describe the rational behind the mysteriously-spliced German ad. Here's a link to it. Please, for the love of God, don't watch it. It's hella boring. I'm only putting it here because it's the right thing to do. However, this one actually explains just what the ad was all about. And it has subtitles.
Here are a few that I'm sure you'll more than enjoy.
