Adweek’s Top 10 Commercials of the Week


Taco Bell ‘Eat Your Words’

Be careful what you say about Taco Bell in Canada. The chain is liable to etch your angry rants on taco shells and force them down your throat. That's what happened in this stunt from ad agency Grip Limited in Toronto.


Guerlain ‘La Légende de Shalimar’

This new ad for French perfume house Guerlain's Shalimar fragrance is perhaps the single most elaborate spot this side of the same director's famous Cartier spot from last year. 


Mountain Dew ‘Human Catapult’

Mountain Dew has officially teamed up with director Devin Graham for a new video presenting lots of woozy footage of people flying back and forth on a giant catapult—with plenty of Mountain Dew signage and products.


Kia ‘Totally Transformed’

Kia's hamster commercials, including this new spot, are that rarest of advertising species: a campaign that by all objective measures you should hate, but which you can't help but love.


Audi ‘Tony Weeks’

This new spot for Audi, created by BBH London, focuses on high-profile boxing referee Tony Weeks, who officiates a fight between cruiserweights Steve Cunningham and B.J. Flores.


Dallas Mavericks ‘Guess What Day It Is?’

Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki horses around in this parody of Geico's "Hump Day" commercial, strutting through the team's offices and asking everyone to "guess what day it is."


Windows Phone ‘Meet the Nokia Lumia 1020’

There isn't a public event that Apple and Samsung users can't spoil by fighting with each other, according to Crispin Porter + Bogusky's hyperbolic but still amusing campaign for the Windows Phone.


350 Action ‘Climate Name Change’

New York ad agency Barton F. Graf 9000 has turned its roguish attention to the issue of climate change by proposing that extreme storms be named after the policy makers who deny climate change.


Rubio’s ‘To the Ocean’

Rubio's celebrates its sea-centric menu shift (and very popular fish tacos) with an ode to the ocean and its other raw ingredients.


Jim Beam ‘Jackie Chiles Is Back and Saving Bees’

Fictional Seinfeld lawyer Jackie Chiles is back, this time representing Jim Beam and protecting its delicious honey from illegal bear activity through his legal stylings and the hashtag #suethebears.
