Willie Nelson song in new Subaru commercial

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015
Willie Nelson’s, “I’ve Loved You All Over the World” is soundtrack for this sneak preview of new video about the joy the story of a Subaru Impreza owner taking his loyal, old dog on one more amazing trip.

About This Commercial:

DescriptionThe bond between a man and his dog is as strong as the Subaru Impreza. In his furry best friend’s golden years, the pair finish the dog’s bucket list while Willie Nelson’s “I’ve Loved You All Over the World” plays in the background: filling shopping carts up with tennis balls, 14 and 3/4 birthday cakes, a brand new leather shoe to chew on and fixing mends with old girlfriends. Make the most out of every mile with Subaru.

Dogs are the best. No, this isn’t a subtle shot at cat lovers, but dogs make loyal companions who will form a bond with you that you’ll never be able to find anywhere else. Besides, the feelings you get when you walk through the door and a dog sees you is amazing. Imagine being greeted by your dog for the very first time, only this happens every time. So whether we see a laundry basket full of puppies or an older dog with a little salt and pepper on his face, it warms the heart and makes you feel all fuzzy inside. Dogs are pretty awesome.

This is the case in this 30-second ad from Subaru highlighting the Subaru Impreza. Willie Nelson’s “I’ve Loved You All Over the World” plays in the background setting the right mood. We see a man and his best friend going through a bucket list, full of items and to-do experiences. From one hundred tennis balls, an almost-there birthday cake, a brand new leather shoe to chew on, to even breaking a few rules and getting a swim in at the local motel pool that doesn’t allow dogs, the owner doesn’t hold back on his list. He even sets up a reunion between his dog and the dog’s old girlfriend! That deserves some kind of awesome owner award doesn’t it? It’s sweet to see an owner provide as much happiness and joy as he can for his beloved companion, just like the dog has provided for his owner all his life.

Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard, “Alice in Hululand”

Monday, June 29th, 2015
by: Chris Parton

Country legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard team up for some pickin’ & grinnin’ in paradise in their new video for “Alice in Hulaland.” Filmed in Hawaii, Nelson’s home-away-from-the-road, the clip is filled with sunshine, sand and smiles from the pair of longtime buddies.

The track comes from their recent Number One album, Django and Jimmie — named after Nelson and Haggard’s respective musical heroes, jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and country pioneer Jimmie Rodgers — and features a sound heavy on beachy steel guitar and carefree harmonica.

In the video, 82-year-old Nelson and 78-year-old Haggard relax with their acoustic guitars, looking totally at ease. Haggard even sports a pot-leaf-adorned hat, while Nelson — whose frame of mind needs no identifying symbols — kicks back in shades and a straw cowboy hat.

The lyrics to “Alice in Hulaland” are all about a sweet girl whom some might describe as a groupie. Naturally, the clip includes some pretty ladies, but it’s made to look more like an innocent home movie, not the pseudo peepshows that have become so common in modern country videos. Adding to the home-movie feel are scenes of beachfront shops and colorful locals, giving the impression that viewers might actually be getting a glimpse into what Nelson’s life on the green islands is really like.

After a pair of dates with Alison Krauss & Union Station this weekend, Nelson will adjourn to his home in Austin to prepare for his annual Fourth of July Picnic. Haggard is also on the bill, along with Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves, Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell. Many of those same artists, led by Nelson, will participate in a July 6th tribute to Waylon Jennings, also in Austin.

Chipotle’s “Back To The Start” tallied the most honors, five—four at the AICP Show, The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, and one from the Show’s Next Awards—this week at ceremonies presented by the Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP). The 21st annual AICP Show debuted on Tuesday evening (6/12) at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, drawing some 2,000 members of the ad, marketing and production industries.

Earlier in the day, the Next Awards took place at MoMA, replete with case studies of Integrated Campaign winners. Each year the honored AICP Show and Next work becomes part of the archive of the Department of Film at MoMA. The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, which honors the best in commercial advertising, and the Next Awards, recognizing marketing that crosses boundaries and media channels, comprise the overall AICP Show.

The nearly two-and-a-half-minute Chipotle short, which debuted on air as a commercial during this year’s Academy Awards, took the AICP Show’s Advertising Excellence/Single Commercial category. Each category of the Show may have up to three honorees, with the exception of Advertising Excellence/Single Commercial, Advertising Excellence/Campaign and the brand new Most Next, which may have only one honoree each, making those pieces Best in Show. Promoting the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, “Back To The Start” was directed by Johnny Kelly of Nexus Productions, London, for Creative Artists Agency, Los Angeles. “Back To The Start” centers on a misguided farmer who slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the error of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. The beautifully executed stop motion animation is all contained in one long panning “shot.”

Besides Advertising Excellence/Single Commercial, “Back To The Start” garnered AICP Show honors in the Visual Style, Musical Arrangement (Duotone Audio) and Animation categories, as well as a Next Award for Viral/Web Film While “Back To The Start” took Best in Show for a Single Commercial, Best in Show distinction for Advertising Excellence/Campaign was bestowed upon Google Chrome’s “The Web Is What You Make Of It” which consists of the spots “Dear Sophie,” “It Gets Better” and “Bieber” out of BBH New York and Google Creative Lab. “Dear Sophie” and “Bieber” were directed by Henry & Rel of Moxie Pictures. “Dear Sophie” scored an additional AICP Show honor in the Agency Art Direction category.

Meanwhile the Next Awards featured for the first time a Most Next winner, which best exemplifies from among the year’s Next winners the most innovative and forward thinking work of the year. This Next Best in Show honor also entails a $5,000 grant, drawn from the AICP Foundation, to an educational organization selected by the entrant. The inaugural Most Next award went to Sony & Nissan’s “GT Academy” out of TBWA\Chiat\Day, Los Angeles, and directed by Jeff Zwart of TBWA\Chiat\Day chose to direct the grant to Room 13, an international network of student-driven creative studios founded as a single room in 1994 in Caol, Scotland. Sony & Nissan’s “GT Academy” was additionally honored in the Next Product Integration category.

Most honored work After the five honors earned by Chipotle’s “Back To The Start” came Little Monster’s “Take This Lollipop” which registered four….
