The New Ads

This is a company that owes it’s entire success to a dot-com era Super Bowl ad buy. Well, HotJobs too, if you remember your history. Anyway, what do you think? Feels a bit to me like a Nike ad mixed with the ending of Donnie Darko. But without the cool music.


This one has better music. I know I know this song. Does anyone remember what it is? Chemical Brothers? It’s one of those parts of a song you know you know but you can’t place. Anyway, looks kinda like the Matrix. Without the Rage Against the Machine. Come to think of it, the first Matrix should be mashed up into a ad.

    The second song is by the chemical brothers and it is called dream on.

    Thanks. I knew it was Chem Bros, but I couldn’t remember which one.

    The first one is Daybreak by Rebecca Cherry, it is a Cherry-Tate Music Production: ‘a special for the ad’. (You will find her on Myspace)

    and of course the second is the Chemical Brothers’ ~ “Dream On”.
