When actors make the ad

I feel bad for subjecting you to the horrid Samsung infomercial I posted two days ago. Even if it was funny, it’s still intellectual pollution.

To make it up to you, here’s an ad where a smart but very simple idea becomes brilliant when it’s delivered by great actors.

It’s not that new and these ads for for Devondale Fast Start have already picked up a few awards this year like a Film Bronze at Cannes. Like all great ads, for me they are already classics.

The idea behind that ad is straightforward. Milk tastes better than soy, no matter what.
The way the actors bring the creative idea to life is simply brilliant. I can’t stop laughing no matter how many times I see it.

Congratulations DDB Melbourne for these two copies:

Not my favourite but still good: Man Child:

If you want to recommend ads that actors made brilliant, leave a comment and I’ll post my favourites.
