Forget about the Super Bowl Ads

firebrandI admit it. I am sucker for a good commerical. I paid money to see the British Advertising Awards every year at the Walker Museum in Minneapolis. Now there will be a network on TV, web and mobile called Firebrand that will focus on the best advertising spots from around the world. The multi-platform network will debut tonight at 11pm EST on the Ion Television Network.

Firebrand features the most creative advertising, best video gametrailers and special promotions, providing a unique destination forcommercial culture. Firebrand programs TV commercials the way musicnetworks have programmed music videos. “Viewers are encouraged to ‘Opt-in,Search, Download and Share’ their favorite spots on TV, the web andmobile,” says John A. Lack, Chief Executive Officer/Co-Founder….Firebrand will enlist the aid of “Commercial Jockeys” or “CJs” who willguide the viewing audience through award-winning ads, exclusives,director’s cuts and never-before-seen-on-TV commercials. In its firstmonth, Firebrand will feature commercial celebrities like the Dell Dude,Ben Curtis, Capitol One’s angel, Jay Klaitz, and the young star of Mr.Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, Zach Mills.

Scrap Black Friday and don’t Buy Anything.

bndI find Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving pretty surreal with all the advertising. It is a definite attack on my senses.  It almost has become a holiday on its own. In my opinion, I think it has corrupted what Thanksgiving and the rest of the holidays truly mean. Don’t get me wrong, I love buying some new fangle device, or some music. However, this can get a little extreme.  Take a look at this  video from last year and previous years where people get trampled in a store to grab some toys that are on sale.Adbusters  put together a campaign called Buy Nothing Day which happens today.   The Premise is simple; don’t buy anything today.  They have Public Service Announcement for their campaign which MTV won’t air because it is a little to extreme for their airwaves.

MTV, the channel that markets itself to hip youth, has decreed that our Buy Nothing Day public service spot “goes further than we are willing to accept on our channels”. Gangsta rap and sexualized, semi-naked school girls are okay, but apparently not a burping pig talking about consumption. If you object to this sort of corporate censorship, why not send them a message now?
