This new commercial for VitaminWater by ad agency CP+B pays homage to the internet meme and encourages the viewer to spot all the different viral hits referenced. ‘Grab it by the horns’ packs a lot into its 30 seconds, with a prisoner flash mob, lime head cat, planking and a double rainbow, amongst others. The brand writes:
“ah yes, the splendors of the internet. triumphant babies, photobombs, seductive men who strictly play smooth jazz, and of course the cats made of toaster pastry. these days, it’s not unusual to encounter something this unusual. so take a sip of your vitaminwater, grab the proverbial antelope by the horns, and check out this commercial. yeehaw!”
Here is the chart of top ten creative agencies based on most watched viral work in 2011. Wieden + Kennedy Portland stays on top with their all new Old Spice campaign.

TED, the non-profit devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” announced the winners of its 2011-2012 “Ads Worth Spreading” challenge on Tuesday. The 10 winners were revealed at the TED2012 conference in Long Beach, Calif.
The non-profit stated on its website that the intention of this annual initiative is to find “ads that communicate ideas with consumers in the same way that TED wants to communicate with its audience.”
Agencies, producers and brands from 39 countries submitted to the 2012 challenge through an “Ads Worth Spreading” channel on YouTube. Six teams of two judges — each one made up of a TED speaker and a “rising star” from the advertising industry — worked together to nominate ads across six categories: talk, social good, cultural compass, creative wonder, brand bravery and storytelling. Additionally, 25 leading voices in the ad industry acted as “Advocates” to make nominations.
This year’s winners include Canal+, Chipotle, Engagement Citoyen, L’Oréal Paris, Mazda, Microsoft, NTT Docomo, Prudential, Rethink Breast Cancer and Sharpie.
“We sought out ads that were driven by ideas,” said TED Curator Chris Anderson in a press release. “At TED, we’ve seen the power of imagination and innovation. We want to reward companies that have invested in longer-form, beautifully crafted campaigns that value human attention and intelligence, and take the time to tell a thought-provoking story.”
In addition to being featured across TED.com, YouTube blogs and social media, the teams behind the winning ads will be honored at a special celebration co-hosted by TED and YouTube, which will take place in March at the Art Director’s Club in New York City

Watched this today morning and couldn’t help but laugh at the direction that Old Spice is going. Would it make me buy Old Spice? Probably not but I’m definitely going to spend an extra second looking at it when buying my deodorant because I like it.
Always had a soft spot for NGO’s and the like. Somehow they always seem to come up with creative that cuts through and puts a smirk on your face.
Check out Greenpeace’s latest spot.
