Aye seen it on TV before, though I haven't watched any since Christmas.

Just checked the date the file was added on youtube, Sept 06.

Though it is still a nice piece of animation, if only the real thing was that complex and fun :)

Thats a epic add. It reminds me a little of the Honda Diesel ad they had out quite some time ago.

The adds are better than the programs a lot of times.

This is great to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2VCfOC69jc&mode=related&search=

THis thread shoud be deleted for advertising Coca Cola, I mean inciting people to click on a link to watch adverts really is going too far. Don't you think we're already inundated with ads quite enough everywhere else we look ,without actually deliberately deciding to watch them?
Yes, it's no doubt very cool, but thats' the point of it, to draw you in and subliminally make you buy the product, associate coke's coolness with the coolness of the ad, and make people talk about it, and you are falling into that trap so easily, you should be embarrassed.
Who actually drinks that black sugary piss anyway, I don't think I've had a coke since I was at school.

The people with the money commission art.

It was no different in the Renaissance. The Church held the power then, but now it's big conglomerates.
It doesn't follow that something cannot have any artistic value because it's trying to sell you something.

I dont think the 'selling Coke' part of the ad is what the original poster was particularly interested in, in the same way that i doubt that 'reminding everyone about bible stories' was foremost on your mind when you made that 'David' sculpture.

Oh for god sake lighten up. I know you love this bitter, anti social reputation you have made for yourself but its an animation forum and the entire advert is a great piece of animation.

Enjoy it....its much more fun than sounding like a ***

Jeez, oDDity, the guy posted under the 'General Discussion' forum, so what's the big issue here? People have discussed movies and all sorts in the past, with no intervention.

Also, you've been guilty of taking relevant discussions off on random non-LightWave directions yourself, you f*cking hipocrite.

Once again you've turned an innocent thread in an 'all about oDDity' thread, and frankly I'm sick of it. Why don't you just take your extreme views and sod off back to where you've been lurking for the last few months?

Boycott all advertising. Deliberately decide not to buy anything that has been advertised in any way, except in the actual website or shop of the sellers.

Don't do that.. That would cause prices to drop and quality to rise.

Darth Mole
05-29-2007, 08:24 AM
Ah, but surely by watching it - and enjoying several minutes of animation - then NOT buying the product, you're actually doing more harm to the company which has spent time and effort on the ad?

Anyway, why is Coke so evil? Or does this apply to any product advertised anywhere on TV/press/billboards?

I just came back from SF and Las Vegas. Coke is far from the biggest culprit - it would probably help if every serving wasn't the size of a small dog. In the end we just ordered starters instead of main courses...

Oh and everything has cheese on it. That doesn't help.

oDDity
05-29-2007, 11:10 AM
The way I look at it, if you have to advertise a product, then it can't be any good.
You only have to force sell stuff that's crap, make it look all interesting and mysterious and exciting and cool and used by sexy people.
If a product is great then the word will get around on its own, and people will buy it.

There is no doubt that advertising works for them but of course it is your prerogative to boycott the products and sure show them.

But how do you justify this opinion when a perfectly respectable company (organic, green, fair trade, P.C.) advertises a perfectly respectable product (one that actually does the world good) that would otherwise remain unknown?

I sort of understand your anti-advertising rhetoric (TV ads especially annoy me) but I can't possibly be aware of every decent product through word-of-mouth. I simply don't know enough people to cover every product in every catergory that I might be interested in.

The alternative is that you simply shift responsibility for watching ads to your friends and comrades. Shame on you!

oDDity
05-29-2007, 05:43 PM
Not at all, when I want something, be it a pint of milk or a new computer, I can go to a shop and browse, or on the internet for websites that sell them.
I don't need everyone who has anything to sell to annoy me by advertising it in every possible medium.
It's only frivolous stuff that you don't need that you find through adverts anyway, anything important that you actually need is easy to find.

That's all well and good if you're able-bodied. What if you're house-bound? Or just don't have access to a range of great shops? Anyway, this is clearly going nowhere.

For what it's worth, I really enjoyed Spider-Man 2 and I'm saddened that the franchise has seemingly shot itself in the foot (despite massive box office). I'll check it out on DVD.

Coca-Cola and Britvic's Pepsi Max and Diet Pepsi all contain sodium benzoate.

Professor Peter Piper, a professor of molecular biology and biotechnology, tested the impact of sodium benzoate on living yeast cells in his laboratory. What he found alarmed him: the benzoate was damaging an important area of DNA in the "power station" of cells known as the mitochondria.

He told The Independent on Sunday: "These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it: they knock it out altogether.

"The mitochondria consumes the oxygen to give you energy and if you damage it - as happens in a number if diseased states - then the cell starts to malfunction very seriously. And there is a whole array of diseases that are now being tied to damage to this DNA - Parkinson's and quite a lot of neuro-degenerative diseases, but above all the whole process of ageing."

Not at all, when I want something, be it a pint of milk or a new computer, I can go to a shop and browse, or on the internet for websites that sell them. So you admit to actively seeking out advertising for these products and services then. You're also doing your own advertising as well, or did you not notice that link in your signature?

Companies that annoy me with their obnoxious advertising will not get any business from me (hear that, Mountain Dew?), and many other people likewise boycot various companies based on where they spend their advertising money. Unfortunately, we seem to be in the minority, based on the number of oversized, road-hogging SUVs everywhere around here. Yet, up until a few months ago, there was a waiting list to get a Prius because the demand for them far exceeded the supply, even though these weren't advertised very widely. In fact, I've only ever seen one Prius ad, and that was just a week ago.

And then you get to the morons that actually BUY and supply advertising for companies out of their own pocket, like anyone that has a Nike T-shirt. Corporations love these idiots. They not only get free advertising all over the place, even in areas where it's restricted, but they also get someone else to pay to do that advertising for them. If these people were smart, they'd insist on at least getting a free pair of shoes in return for the public marketing campaign they're providing, as well as a free shirt.

But I believe 'some' wear the logos due to a feeling of personal endorsement.
Such as , I use, wear, like, endorse this product, therefore I am going to spread the word, hope others use the product and the company/person thrives.

Many, myself included, feel this way about musicians and bands.

Heck I have even seen some get tatoos of particular product logos or band names they endorse, use or listen to them so much.

Takes a heck of a commitment.

Of course there are also those who have Abercrombie&Finch plastered on everything they wear cause it's the cool thing to do.

I was looking forward to Heroes starting on UK TV recently after a fair amount of hype but after sticking it out through 3 (dodgily written, but ok) episodes I couldn't take anymore of the Sci Fi channel's ad breaks.
That's the first time advertising has driven me away from something-I thought the whole idea was to draw you in.

So you admit to actively seeking out advertising for these products and services then. You're also doing your own advertising as well, or did you not notice that link in your signature?
No, I stated that the only permissible advertising is in-store or the website of the sellers. That's obvious.
The point is that I go to them when I want something, I don't need a store to advertise, I can either find it in town, or someone will know of it. Likewise with the internet, you can find something by doing a quick search, you don't need adverts plastered all over every website.
Like I said, it's only the useless products that need advertising anyway. Anything you actually need is easy to find.
I mean I can't even walk aorund my small rural town wiithout see huge hoardings up on walls advertising crap, and fly posters defacing everything.


And yes you're right, I don't, and never have, owned anything with a brand or logo of any kind on it.

My sig isn't advertising, it's just showing my credentials.
