Nothing gets more embarrassing than watching a sex scene on TV with your parents around. Based on this insight, HBO has come up with this hilariously clever campaign for HBO Go, it’s subscription-based streaming service that lets you watch your favourite shows on your iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, Samsung, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Chromecast, Kindle Fire and Roku.

The seven-commercial campaign depicts various scenarios in a family of four where the two parents (unintentionally) make things awkward for their young-adult son and daughter every time there’s a raunchy scene on TV. The commercials capture the embarrassed reactions of the kids followed by the line “Might be a good time for HBO Go”. The campaign will run on HBO’s YouTube channel, Twitter account and BuzzFeed. The agency is SS+K. Check it out below.

1) Lesbian makeout scene from ‘Girls’

2) Sex scene from ‘True Blood’

3) “See honey, you have the right to speak up. It’s your body”

4) Loyal father watches infidelity scene from ‘True Detective’

5) Wife abusing husband in ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

6) ‘Game of Thrones’ – Annoying questions

7) ‘Game of Thrones’ – First cousins

Children suffering from cancer get lonely due to prolonged hospitalisation and treatments that keep them away from their normal routine. To counter their isolation, Amaral Carvalho Hospital and creative agency DM9Rio (Brazil) developed a line of special teddy bears called “ELO” that receive and store audio notes from WhatsApp. Each child was given a teddy with an exclusive number on which friends and family could send messages anytime. When the children got lonely all they needed to do was press ELO’s hand and the message would be played back. Check it out below.

Kudos to everyone involved in creating this brilliant innovation that’s put a smile on these kids’ faces. We’ve seen some great work by Brazilian agencies in this category – like JWT Brazil’s Super Formula last year. Don’t forget to share this post and your feedback in the comments section below. You’ll also love watching how these 15 people with Down syndrome changed the perspective of millions.

If you believe nice guys finish last, have a look at this brilliant ad from Thai Life Insurance that proves, on the contrary, that they win every time. Titled “Unsung Hero” this heartwarming clip has skyrocketed to the top of the viral video charts with over 6 million YouTube views, 800,000 Facebook shares and 22,000 tweets in just one week.

The film description says it all really:

“Ever wondered, what is it we ​​want from life exactly? Why do some people have plenty of money, still no joy. This clip might not be the answer, but it may be a starting point for you to do something, to find the answer yourself.”

Ogilvy & Mather Bangkok is the agency behind this campaign. Back in 2011, Ogilvy and Thai Life Insurance had teamed up for (what would eventually become) one of the year’s most popular viral videos titled “Silence of love”. Check it out below.

Southeast Asia seems to be a gold mine for emotion and sentiment-driven campaigns such as these. What’s your take on this advertising strategy? Don’t forget to share this post and your feedback in the comments section below.

Check out this cool marketing and product innovation by beIN Sports network. They’ve come up with a vuvuzela (loud plastic horn used by soccer fans) that works like a remote control and changes the television channel to beIN Sports every time you blow it. Why? So you soccer-fans can finally get your voice heard and watch the game instead of some boring crap.

How it works:

The BeIN “Game Changer” uses an Arduino setup with a mini microphone connected to a 8-bit microchip that transmits infrared LED signals to cable boxes every time the horn is blown.

TBWA\Chiat\Day, New York is the agency behind this ingenious campaign. Initially, they used a 3D printed prototype of the vuvuzela to test wether such a device was possible. Watch the making of the beIN SPORTS Game Changer below:
