Chipotle Wants Your Junk Email

Rather than rewrite the article I originally read, I’ll summarize and link to it:

Starting today, forward your junk emails to nojunk@chipotlejunk.com.  For every 100,000 junk emails that Chipotle receives, they will donate $10,000 to nonprofit organization The Lunch Box.  As their facebook page puts it: “We don’t like junk. Not in our in-boxes. Not in our food.”

Check out the original article here on BrandWeek.

Now head to your email and forward those junk messages!

New McDonald’s Ads Revitalize “I’m Lovin’ It”

In my opinion, McDonald’s “I’m Lovin’ It” ads were some of the strongest that the company ever put out.  It may have been that their release coincided with my rising interest in advertising, but the message simplicity and global appeal have made the slogan extremely successful.

Therefore, I was excited to hear that McDonald’s would be bringing back the slogan in the company’s latest batch of TV ads.  Check out my favorite (titled “Proud Papa”) below:

Although the ads don’t feature the slogan as prominently as before (and I will admit that I miss the jingle), I still feel that the message come across thanks to the content of the ad itself.  What better way to highlight on the universal appeal of the slogan than by featuring bears eating McDonald’s? (it may be odd, but it definitely works) Also, the bit at the end about the last fry is perfect.

To see some of the other ads in the new campaign, check out this post on AdAge.

Hillshire Farm – Go Meat!

This is another older commercial, but again, one of my favorites.  In my opinion, any commercial praising the glories of grilling meat is a winner.  The ad was part of Hillshire Farm‘s ‘Go Meat!’ campaign.  Check it out below:

Sonic Commercial – Cheap Date

I know they’re nothing new, but I’m a big fan of all of the Sonic Drive-In commercials.  I’ve been meaning to write about them since I started this blog, and after seeing one of the commercials during The Report last night, I realized that I had yet to do so.  In case you haven’t seen any of the ads, here’s the one I saw last night (which also happens to be my favorite):

All of the ads in the campaign are improvised, and the actors (improv artists Peter Grosz and T.J. Jagodowski) do a great job of creating hilarious dialog while also keeping the focus on the products.  As I mentioned in my last post on Volkswagon, product and brand recall is an important, and often missed, element of advertising.  It’s good to see another company pull it off so well in such a funny campaign.  Plus, the timing on the text “smack” is always dead-on.

Let me know what you think of the ads in the comment section below!
