I went along to this on Thursday night and it was a great event. Particularly because Alfredo Marcantonio showed us a reel of commercials that were all low budget, but brilliant. To demonstrate that in a recession when budgets are tight we don’t have to compromise on the quality of the idea. He used a few of Adrian Jefferty’s old ads for The List and Radio Scotland to illustrate the point but I wish he’d also used an old 1576 classic series for The Scottish Claymores.
Here are a few of the ads he showed.
I’d never seen this VW Karmann Ghia ad before but it really is a classic.
He showed this too. Which made us all laugh.
And this cracker for Carling Black label.
He showed a different ad from this one for the x show. But this is a pretty good alternative…
