5 Funny Commercials That Will Fill Your Weekend With Laughter
And we are back with yet another segment of #FunnyFridays where we bring to you the funniest commercials. The importance of humor in marketing in today’s day and age can’t be stressed enough. And that’s precisely why we see an increasing number of brands relying on humor to get their message across to their customers.
So, here are 5 hilarious commercials that will inspire you to make your ads more humorous and help you connect with your audience on a more personal level.
1. Carlton Draught: Beer Chase
This hilarious ad by Australian beer brand Carlton Drought does a humorous take on a chase sequence by removing cars entirely to avoid promoting drunk driving,
Instead, it shows a lively foot chase between police officers and a bunch of robbers. The commercial hits all the car chase tropes, including smashing through glass, crashing into a pile of boxes, and a slow leap over the crest of a giant hill. The funniest thing about the video though was watching them all run with beer pints in their hands😂
2. HBO Go: Awkward Family Viewing
Watching TV with your family members can be really awkward at times and HBO Go raises this point with this commercial.
Firstly, your parents would open Pandora’s box of questions for you to answer. They’d then try to recall where they have seen the actors before. Also, most of the time, they won’t be able to keep up with the storyline. However, if you’re watching Game of Thrones and the most awkward part is only that your parents kept talking the whole time, I’d say you’re damn lucky!
3. Clash of Titans: Revenge
“I’ll look for you, I’ll find you, and I’ll kill you”- that’s exactly the kind of motivation one needed to tune in to Clash of Titans.
This commercial from the mobile game Clash of Titans features Liam Neeson’s reputation for exacting revenge in his movies using his iconic dialogue delivery by setting “Big Buffet Boy 85” as the punchline. He is then seen moving on his quest for vengeance after being defeated.
4. Allstate: Cat Mayhem
Do you ever get the feeling that your cat hates you? Well, Dean Winters sums up the cats’ devious plans for its owners perfectly well in this ad.
From scratches and bites to the havoc that they can wreak on your house, cats can be the harbinger of absolute mayhem. And what else to counter it with than Allstate insurance. Well, no ill feelings toward the cats, but I have always been a dog person and for some reason seeing Tom getting whacked by Jerry always gave me an inexplicable sense of pleasure.
5. Credit Karma: Carpool Credit Improvement
What do you do if your car’s wipers, air conditioning, blinkers, and pretty much everything else stop functioning? Well, you do it manually!
Regardless of how poor their product placement is in this commercial, they somehow managed to come up with a funny plot for the commercial- thanks to the actors in this ad. The guy making the blinker sound at the end stole the show though😂 Honestly, I’d either sell it to a scrap dealer or set it on fire if I had to drive a car so bad.
And that was a wrap of yet another #FunnyFridays segment. Humor can play a major role in helping you present your brand as one that people can relate to. Once you are able to forge that connection with your audience, you’ll be on the right We’ll be back next week with more funny commercials for you. Till then, stay tuned fellas!
