Clarín | The Great Argentine Newspaper

Em decorrência da crise que afeta os veículos de comunicação impressa do mundo todo (vide a descontinuação da Gazeta Mercantil anunciada dias atrás), empresas do setor precisam buscar formas bem menos comuns para chamar a atenção dos anunciantes, estes que estão pensando duas ou mais vezes antes de gastar rios de dinheiro com publicidade em mídia jornal. E pra encorajar novamente estes anunciantes, o maior periódico argentino, o Clarín, veicula uma série de anúncios que trazem consigo um tom mais cômico em torno deste desafio, numa simples mensagem voltada ao target:”This is year to sell or sel. Think carefully where you will advertise” (Este é o ano para vender ou vender. Pense com cuidado onde você vai anunciar). Em seguida você confere os anúncios, e sem jump:

Sense of Humor Refreshing

Boost Mobile , the prepaid division of Sprint Nextel, is unleashing a series of spots that play off of the the “Unwronged” spots featuring Danica Patrick. I am so glad that some advertisers still have a sense of humor because I am about tired of hearing how all of these companies that were started during the Great Depression want to comfort us. Not that we don’t need a pick-me-up every once in a while, but enough is enough.

The creative is aimed at supporting a new $50 a month, “Monthly” Unlimited’ offering from Boost. The commercial features the Motorola Clutch i465, Boost Mobile’s first phone with a computer keypad. The creative was developed by Boost’s advertising agency of record, 180LA.

When I first saw the spot, I thought that it would run a couple of time and then get pulled due to some sort of  perceived offense. I am happy that I was wrong.

Although a bit far-fetched (Danica Patrick using prepaid cellular service), the overall creativity is refreshing. We are all aware of studies conducted during economic crises, and how the companies that spend through the storm emerge stronger on the other end.
