Some great adverts that are very easy to swallow.

June 30, 2008

Here are two fantastic adverts for Alka Seltzer.
The first of them is an absolute classic. It shows what can happen when you eat “a too many spicy micey meat balls”.

Mama Mia, that’s some superb advertising. I love the laid-back American voice over, the sort of delivery that was so well used throughout the 70s and 80s in the USA. It has gravitas without hammering its message down your throat.

And then the second offering adds a little dark humour to the proceedings. “When you’ve eaten something you shouldn’t have.” Genius.

This second advert was done by Abbott Mead Vickers (visit their website here and see some more of their great work.)
These ads show that a simple idea, executed well will bring more longevity to your brand than a poor idea that you throw money at.
