Adforum Commercial AdsDid you miss the Superbowl
At the time of this article (February 5, 2007), Adforum is running a special which will allow you access to 60,000 adverts for $299US. Therer are television, print, interactive, radio, cinema and outdoor campaigns that you can look through by using your internet browser.
If you don't think you're going to be logging in for an entire year, you can subscribe for a single month for only $49/month.
If you have a larger studio with producers and animators all clamoring for their own online access, you can get a subscription for 5 different stations for $999US.
If you're a student or active instructor, the website is an awesome resource, and will only cost you $149US (certain restrictions apply: see website).
FOR FIVE MORE DAYS - THE SUPERBOWL ADS ARE FREE TO SEE. You can see all of your favorite ads - show them to people who missed them, step through them to see what looked like what. See which ones you missed yesterday. Don't miss the ads tomorrow, just click 'em to catch 'em.
Adforum.com has sorted the ads by "Order of Appearance", "Brand", or "Agency" list for you. (There are some agencies whose names are not available). From "Inspiration Pulled from Your Life" - a General Motors spot from Campbell-Ewald to the "JayZ" in the Budweiser ad from Cannonball.
Advertising brings all of the tools I talk about together. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Apple's Final Cut Pro, MAXON's CINEMA 4D, luxology's modo - - - all of these and more can be seen highlighted in what can be argued the best commercials of the year. And all of these ads, and ads from around the world can be found in one click at Adforum.com.
