It's summer, and the livin' is easy. And so is the Creative Excellence Friday blog this week. I found a series of international commercials, all back to back; so all you have to do is pour yourself a cold beverage, press play, and enjoy.
Now wasn't that easy? The Japanese Panda commercial is bizarre.
It goes to show you, a particular type of humour in Japan, or Britain may not read as easily in Arkansas. Thankfully those peculiarities keep all of us ad practitioners working. You can't template a universality of humour. At least not yet, and hopefully our geographic uniqueness will be appreciated for generations to come.
Have a great weekend.
