The year of the celebrity anti-pitchman continues, with Ewan McGregor poking fun at the absurdities of the advertising process in AMV BBDO's amusing campaign for British TV and Internet provider BT.
Here's a fantastic ad stunt orchestrated by media agency PHD on Britain's ITV. On Sunday night, the TV broadcaster devoted a whole commercial break during an episode of Dancing on Ice to airing remade versions, done entirely in Lego, of four well-known British ads—to promote The Lego Movie. See the entire ad break here: The first spot was an abbreviated version of the famous 2012 Vinnie Jones CPR ad for the British Heart Foundation. That was followed by 30-second ads, remade practically shot for shot, for Confused.com, BT and Premier Inn. Short promos for The Lego Movie aired in between each of the spots, followed by a proper trailer at the end. Check out the four original ads below. Via Creative Review.
