GALLERY 02: Mini Ad hop, Backwards, Warning

Mini's fun-spirited campaign continues with these amusing and off the wall ads. They are also innovative in a media sense. 'Ad hop' is Mini's attempt to 'jump over' another ad as it launches off a ramp and jumps off the screen to the right. We then see another ad for another product before Mini jumps back into screen on a downward trajectory. 'Backwards' features a Mini adventure in reverse while 'Warning' is just pure Traktor.

St Luke's play naughtily with Travelocity's "Go virtually anywhere" strapline to produce an extremely entertaining ad which avoids the usual travel cliches. Camp air stewards from a variety of the site's airlines, use delightful double entendres to explain why the service should be used. Todaro's knack for comic timing, and his pared down approach, allow the strong performance of the actors to come to the fore. A risque and original approach.
