The Best Ad-Related Videos of the Week

By The Advert 

Each week, we’re sent hundreds of pieces of advertisement-y work that falls into the fun-to-watch-video category. There’s not enough time in the day to think up copy for all of them so here’s a round-up of the best ad-related video we’ve seen in the last 7 days. You’re welcome.

7. Who doesn’t love watching buildings crumble? In this spot for Ecotricity, a UK-based energy resource, we get to watch cooling stacks from power plants crumble. There might be a bit of mixed messaging here though — why anthropomorphize the stacks with cutesy characters and then kill them? Regardless, you can’t deny the enjoyment of watching big structures fall.



6. This is a side-by-side look at the Ferris Bueller ad from the Super Bowl, with the original film. The scenes match up nicely and this one is just fun to watch.

5. Who wants to look at James Franco for 2:34?

4. Mustaches are an asset of the advertising industry. In ‘Mattstache’, we find an ode to the stache, and a highly entertaining clip at that.

3. Social Media Week is coming up, and this spot called “Future Hipsters” provides a compelling look at why you should attend.

2. Back to the Start is not a new spot. It made the rounds when it first debuted in August of last year, as a call to action for Chipotle. Stop buying from companies that are mean to animals! But according to Business Insider, it’s going to air on TV — marking the brand’s television debut.

1. This video is straight up Apple porn. It’s in no way an advertisement, we just thought you might like to take a trip down 56k of memory lane.
