107/1024 March 2010Lion Nathan Aust Pty Ltd
This TVC commences with a man shown to be thinking out loud. The man is at a pool party wearing his jeans. He is presented with two equally unappealing swimwear options, one being see through white shorts and the other being striped, muti-coloured speedo style swimmers. He says 'the frank'n'beans or the fruit basket, hmmmmm, which one which one, try both. Bring it on nothing to see here.' The man must make a choice between the two if he wishes to swim. The decision will have an impact on his ‘man brand’. The conclusion to this situation is the man chooses to wear both swimwear items, thereby maintaining his dignity. He is then seen diving sideways into the pool. The conclusion to the ad is that by making this choice he was able to ‘Stay Premium’.
109/1024 March 2010SCA Hygiene Australasia
We open this commercial in a re-furbished Deco apartment. The interior is mainly white and we see a spattering of eclectic furniture, art and knick-knacks scattered around the place. A bloke in his mid to late twenties is sitting on the couch. His attention is then drawn to the packet of Libra Invisible pads that are sitting on the coffee table and he reaches out and grabs them. We then watch as he pulls one out of the packaging, unwraps it completely and inspects it. We then cut to the bloke staring at his reflection in a full length mirror, and see he has stuck the pads to his arms like wrist guards. His hands are crossed in front of his face and he starts flailing around as he blocks imaginary bullets that are flying towards him with his magic Libra Invisible wrist guards. Guy: Pchoooooww. Psch Psch Psch Psch Psch. Wonder Guy Man. Na na na na na na na na He then gets out a guitar and starts singing ….Wonder Boy Man is... He spins around and points his clenched, padded wrist at a small dog sitting on the floor, and blocks more bullets that are coming from it. The dog playfully barks in response. He continues to block imaginary bullet and make sound effects while jumping around the house. We then hear the sound of the front door opening and a girl’s voice. Before he has a chance to cover up what he’s been up to his girlfriend walks into the lounge room. Right behind her are her parents. The girl’s father stares at his daughter’s boyfriend, slightly dumbfounded. We then cut to the pack on the coffee table and a graphic appears.
