VE Takes to the Advertising World

Occasionally I like to take my creativity over to the working world side and see if they want a taste. Usually they laugh at me (until the gnomes get even that is) but I think I’ve got a sure-fire print ad campaign this time.

I’m melding famous movie scenes with products and companies for strong visual print ads you won’t forget. You know, like that one product a long time ago…err…whatever it was.

Anyway, have a peek…

Anne said...

I'm first! I'm first!
(double points for me)

Love the last one! That's the best one.

Anne said...

D'Oh!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Those are REALLY great VE. And not just because I'm in a good mood 'cause I'm first. Sorry Anne;-(

The Incredible Woody said...

I would totally use Peninsula Funeral Services!

subtorp77 said...

Hmmm...you could also sub the first for the last...um...then again, that may be too direct? I think Madison Ave. needs a shake-up, heh, heh...and can we get these products at Half-Mart?

Kanrei said...

So wrong that this is yet another for your "Greatest Hits," maybe even your greatest.

Megan said...

I'm not first. But I think all these companies should use these ads!

mama-face said...

VE strikes again. Excellent.

Quirkyloon said...

My name is Quirkyloon Montoya.
You killed my blog.
Prepare to die!

Ha!

Can you give us the 1-800 number for Peninsula Funeral Services?

I can't read it.

My eyes.

They're bad.

ha!

Jeff said...

I'm 11th! I'm 11th!

I agree with the others... these are good. Reminds me of the old Mad Magazines. They used to do stuff like this.

English Mum said...

I have a hole in my hose. It makes cleaning out the chickens uncomfortable as it drips down my wellies.

Oh, hang on...

English Mum said...

Oh no. Double posted. Sorry x

Elizabeth said...

Very funny, I think you've found your calling!

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - Ah yes... the coveted first comment... you earned it!

Kurt said...

Ha!

VE said...

anne - Doh! See what happens when you actually comment after reading the post...you end up in second.

VE said...

incredible woody - They'd be famous, don't you think?

VE said...

subtorp77 - Yeah, you can get half of them at Halfmart!

VE said...

kanrei - Thanks. I'll have to add it to the greatest hits page. I always forget to update that one.

VE said...

megan - I agree and I'll tell them that cash works for me as payment.

VE said...

mama-face - I strucketh it to the corporate naysayers!

VE said...

quirkyloon - Bad eyes? Inconceivable!

VE said...

jeff - Yeah, I remember Mad magazine. Are they even still around?

VE said...

English Mum - Buy some new hose...what are you...chicken?

VE said...

elizabeth - I'm sure my calling will come collect...

VE said...

kurt - Duly archived in the 'memorable comments' file...

Anne said...

when i clicked on comment, there were no others before me, but someone else saw the same thing

VE said...

anne - They're quick here... anything to get that coveted first comment. Ha!

Frank Lee MeiDere said...

Speaking from the other side of my life where I've been analysing and commenting on ads for over 15 years -- these definitely have potential. I think my favourite may be the funeral home, but that could be because I love Princess Bride.

freetheunicorns said...

As someone who works in advertising, I've got to say this cracked me up. Most are funny, but some are brilliant. The Advil/Lebowski killed me, but Funeral Service/Princess Bride totally rules - it's my new screen saver.

Well done VE.

VE said...

frank - That was the one that made me laugh the most. All though I have this thing for that guy belting out "We are Sparta"...

VE said...

freetheunicorns - You work in advertising, eh? I'm guessing it's not as creative or fun as it might seem. Glad you liked them...the funeral one is my favorite too.

Roy Scribner said...

Can any of these boost my manliness?

Beth said...

I think you’re on to something with that last one.
Funeral Homes & Euthanasia combined in one business.

VE said...

roy - I don't think the hose will solve that...

VE said...

beth - That seems to be the popular choice of the bunch...

Baino said...

F*ckn awesome! SPA builders *chuckle* means something a little derogatory down here!

Janna said...

If those two people try to kiss, their hats are going to bump into one another and fall off.

I guess that could be a cheap form of birth control.

Unless you... well, never mind. :)

ReformingGeek said...

And I thought she was screaming because of the knife.

Sigh. Live and learn.

Brian Miller said...

ha. you saved the best for last...oh you should send these on they should be used...

Gladys said...

the last one is my favorite

Maureen said...

Whoo Hoo! I'm 44th!!!!

And I love the last one....

VE said...

baino - Really? I had no idea. I'll have to be careful what I say when I visit...

janna - Life was difficult back then you know

reforminggeek - Oh, that silly old knife prank...that should have been so obvious!

brian - Yes, that's the readers favorite (mine too)

gladys - You're in good company

maureen - 44th isn't bad...

Ronda Laveen said...

I think I'm going to miss being searched for contacts.

VE said...

ronda - They just don't do it like they used too, huh?

Jaime said...

those are great. "hello! my name is ingio montoya. you killed my father. prepare to die"

lime said...

ok, the last one is my favorite hands down, even the hands with 6 fingers.

Carla said...

I love the last one. My favorite.

VE said...

jaime - We have a lot of Princess Bride fans reading here!

lime - I could have just gone with that one and the post would have been a hit!

carla - Me too...

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

Great stuff, VE. I just watch 300 again the other night, and I particularly liked the spa ad. The ad for Peninsula is really good, too. I'd market both of them in real life, in fact.

VE said...

mikewj - The spa ad is my second favorite of the bunch. The funeral one is my first.

Mrsupole said...

Geez, I can remember when "No More Tears Shampoo" first came out, oh hell I can remember when people first started to get color TV's. No more ads. That is my new motto. Okay, I am stopping for tonight and gonna go vote. I will catch up on all the ones I missed later.

God bless.

VE said...

mrsupole - You remember the invention of TV, eh? You remember the invention of words, eh? ;)
