The Times
"General Election"
30s
19 Jun 2024
Thought you were safe from the general election? Think again. This ad for The Times, The Sunday Times, and Times Radio takes Westminster on the road, so to speak. It may not break records like The Eras Tour, but it does plonk Big Ben in Kingston upon Thames and a green leather bench in a school playground.

Betano
"One Moment"
48s
19 Jun 2024
If Walter Sobchak from 'The Big Lebowski' ever met a Betano customer on the street, he'd say: "Life does not stop and start at your convenience, you miserable piece of shit." Why? Because they think it does! When life threatens to get in the way of a bet, each gambler lifts an index finger to say, "Just a moment."

Stimorol
"Infinity"
15s
19 Jun 2024
If gum improves concentration, Stimorol want it to last as long as possible. The Danish brand claim Infinity is the gum of choice for those on a deadline or just keen to focus, with peppermint, spearmint, and strawberry flavours that are meant to stick around. A neon colour palette energises the whole proposition.

Diageo
"Cocktail Collection"
20s
19 Jun 2024
Drinks giant Diageo enter the pre-mixed cocktail market with a breezy commercial for party guests and hosts to consider. A Johnnie Walker Old Fashioned, a Tanqueray Negroni, and a Ciroc Cosmopolitan take centre stage here, as a jazz singer encourages us to say "ch-ch-chin chin". Is she a fan of David Bowie, perchance?

Snapchat
"The Fun Starts with Yellow"
63s
19 Jun 2024
Euro 2024 meets augmented reality and virtual stickers in this Snapchat campaign from agency Dark Horses and director Claire Norowzian. Why, ask the brand, would anyone get worked up over a yellow card when they can mess around with social media instead? If this is how the target audience get into the beautiful game, bring on the animal heads and rainbow vomit.

BetClic
"Fans"
83s
19 Jun 2024
Every World Cup, every European Championship, every Nations League (that one might be a stretch), a particular sort of fan appears. The kind that not only supports the team, but wears the team. Replica shirt? Check. Face paint? Check. Novelty hat? Check. Air horn? Double-check. Suffice it to say, they attract attention wherever they go.

Circle
"Open Money"
60s
18 Jun 2024
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, Dogecoin, Solana… welcome back to the weird and wonderful world of cryptocurrency, where everyone's guaranteed to have a whale of a time. Just be careful not to trip over the corpse of FTX—we thought someone would have removed it by now.

Sharkninja
"Summer of Sport"
30s
18 Jun 2024
It's the question on everyone's lips: who's the best host out of Thierry Henry, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Peter Crouch, and Abbey Clancy? OK, some people's lips. Unlikely as the scenario may be, it's a useful way to promote a variety of SharkNinja products like an air fryer, a fan, and a hair curler in one go.

Smug
"Islands in the Stream"
30s
17 Jun 2024
This commercial for Smug may cause vegans' heads to explode. Not because of 'Islands in the Stream' by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, but the idea of blended dairy and oat milk. When two cartons leap across a supermarket aisle to meet one another, the result is either liquid persuasion or liquid revulsion as two worlds collide.

Three
"Kango Kian"
30s
18 Jun 2024
Vanessa Carlton provides the soundtrack to this Irish Three commercial from agency Boys+Girls and director Nick Roney. Protagonist Kian may be the happiest fibre installation engineer on the planet with his pneumatic drill and lack of supervision. Carlton would walk a thousand miles, but Kian would drill it.

Sky Bet
"Lisa"
30s
18 Jun 2024
Lisa is a United fan. Her father is a United fan. Her father's father was aUnited fan. It stands to reason that City are the enemy. But when a City player scores for England, they have to cheer. This is another example of tournament turmoil, where club loyalties are put on hold for the greater good. We love how Lisa steels herself for the occasion.

Nike
"Awaken Your Madness"
2 mins 22s
18 Jun 2024
Erling Haaland, Vinicius Junior, and Kylian Mbappe each have a screw loose. They train hard, work hard, and play harder than anyone else—Mbappe even talks to the ball ("Top left") like King Charles talks to plants. If Wimbledon were the Crazy Gang, this is the Crazy Trio.

Short Films
"Forever"
5 mins 55s
18 Jun 2024
Jess (Ruby Dawn Hall) and her dad (Jexin Hall) love the great outdoors. When they climb into his white Land Rover Defender, another adventure is never too far away. As much as Dad wants Jess to enjoy herself, he also wants her to learn. "Why?" she asks. "Because I'm not always going to be there to do it for you."

INEOS Automotive
"Built for More"
60s
17 Jun 2024
This fantastic commercial is an excellent reminder that the best car commercials do not advertise vehicles, but instead advertise drivers. It's not a question of whether the INEOS is worthy of you so much as whether you are worthy of the INEOS. At its best, this approach breaks through our natural tendency to stay with car brands we know and trust, and opens our minds to a new possibility.

Nike
"Jamal Musiala"
30s
17 Jun 2024
Content warning for the Tartan Army: this Nike spot contains explicit footage of Jamal Musiala, star of Germany's 5-1 win over Scotland at Euro 2024. The Bayern Munich midfielder made mincemeat of the defence, but how does the twenty-one-year-old do it for club and country? Easy—he keeps his friends close, and his enemies even closer.

Danish Cancer Society
"Bloodsucker"
2 mins 34s
17 Jun 2024
It's 1346 AD, and Igor the vampire is in his element. When he bares his fangs and roars like the monster he is, villagers flee just like they're supposed to. Nearly seven hundred years later, the locals are no longer afraid—in fact, they almost blind him with flash photography. One for the 'gram, and all that.

YouTube
"What a Time To Be a Live Sports Fan"
60s
17 Jun 2024
According to this YouTube TV commercial, spectators have been missing big moments since the Stone Age. Sure enough, a caveman's view is blocked by tall-ass tribespeople—a boulder kick fan's worst nightmare. How about the Roman who gets knocked to the floor by an errant flail? Or the medieval nobleman blinded by a flag at a jousting tournament?

Emmi Caffe Latte
"That Deserves an Emmi"
20s
17 Jun 2024
It's not enough to want an Emmi Caffè Latte, you have to earn it. The trio in this bouncy commercial prove themselves by surviving a packed train, hosting a child's third birthday party, and—our personal favourite—just avoiding the sack. Someone else can tackle the photocopier fire while he enjoys a pasteurised iced coffee with cocoa.

Kathmandu
"Follow That Kea!"
58s
17 Jun 2024
Stefan Hunt directs this madcap spot for outdoor brand Kathmandu. A bird puts the kea into kleptomaniac when, straight from the 'Untitled Goose Game' playbook, it steals a man's wallet and flies away. Some hikers would give up and let nature triumph, but not this one.

Chivas Regal
"I Rise, We Rise"
60s
17 Jun 2024
Chivas Regal go for gold in 'I Rise, We Rise', but not in an Olympic context. Though directed by Taz Tron Delix, the commercial has Midas written all over it—the cast even turn into gold at the end. Rather than pay the Phrygian king to do it, the whisky brand use AI to stress opulence and decadence in a bottle.

Now TV
"House of the Dragon"
30s
17 Jun 2024
Much of this Now TV commercial is a trailer for season two of 'House of the Dragon', one of Fox and Owl's favourite programmes. "Have you ever met a dragon?" the former asks the latter. "Well, there's Margaret next door at number fifteen," says the bird, who (pardon the pun) treats us to a lovely rendition of the theme tune.

Ladbrokes
"Bring Your Wave"
67s
17 Jun 2024
The longest Mexican wave on record took place at the 2019 Rocket League World Championship, where fans waved for over twenty seventy minutes. To promote Euro 2024 at Ladbrokes, agency Neverland and directors The Sacred Egg only have a minute or so to play with.

Chester Zoo
"Endless Adventures"
30s
17 Jun 2024
We see Chester Zoo from all angles in this lively commercial, with vérité shots of animals and visitors alike. A family day out is condensed into thirty seconds’ worth of photos and videos, where penguins and Sumatran tigers are interspersed with spilt drinks and sleepy grandparents. The idea is that the advertised zoo can be what ever visitors want it to be.

Friedberg
"The Greatest"
3 mins 46s
14 Jun 2024
The conceit behind this fun promo for Austrian singer Friedberg's track 'the Greatest' lies in a chameleon-like tendency of the artist to adopt the style of some of those she passes in the street. Director Wouter Stoter manages to inject a degree of intrigue into the notion with a little bit of misdirection which leaves the audience unsure whom the singer will be next.

BASF
"Jingwen"
1 min 55s
14 Jun 2024
There is no doubting Jingwen's sincerity as she battles to save the world from climate change from the inside of her BASF lab, but you do have to wonder if that's the best place to launch this important mission. Nonetheless, this doc-style ad from director Matt Houghton allows her to cogently set out her stall, and includes some fab drone work.
