Cruel Tricks & Driving Kids: 5 Branded Videos You Should Watch Right Now

After a week watching the best (and worst) video advertisements on the net, we’ve picked the five essential ones to watch from this week. 

This week’s round-up could well make you laugh. It looks like most of this year’s Christmas ads have now been released and people are ready for a little less emotional sadvertising.

So without further ado, here is our weekly round-up of the five ads you should watch right now.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!


5. Porsche

Luxury sports car brand Porsche decided to prank unsuspecting learner drivers to promote its new Porsche Experience Center in Le Mans, France. Anxiety and stress levels go through the roof as soon-to-be-motorists struggle to get to grips with the power of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4.

The ad then moves to clips of professional drivers essentially showing us what the Porsche is designed to do. A bit of a contrast from parallel parking on a suburban French hillside.


4. Pepsi


The soft drinks brand has announced the return of its clear-cola ‘Crystal Pepsi’, which will be distributed in the U.S for a limited time and only available via sweepstakes on their mobile app. The ad follows a janitor on his trip back to an office of the 90s.  Time-travel is a well-documented trend in advertising, especially for the older segment of the millennial generation who are said to be some of the most nostalgic people of our time.


3. Volvo

For the launch of its new FMX truck, Volvo cleverly uses a four-year-old child to demonstrate its durability. Sophie takes the truck into a variety of situations where, let’s say we wouldn’t particularly enjoy being in the passenger seat.


2. Bosch Auto Parts


Animal puppets, a catchy theme tune and a clear message all culminate to make Bosch a must-watch ad this week. A hilarious/ witty script and a very catchy song highlights a serious message of visibility on the road.


  1. Irn Bru

The energy drinks brand Irn Bru is known for its eccentric advertising, which in effect supports its wild, out-there and energetic brand image.  Its Christmas campaign doesn’t disappoint in this respect and is sure to have you laughing. Cheeky/ light-hearted advertising is always welcome in an arena that has been dominated by intense, emotional and at times overbearing Christmas adverts. Thank you Irn Bru.
