Adweek today announced what they believe, as advertising experts, to be the best commercials of the past decade. And amongst the finalists were two video game spots.
This browser does not support the video element.
Those ads - which made the final cut of 27 finalists - were "Mountain", for the PS2 (by TBWA in London), and "Diorama", for Halo 3 (by T.A.G. in the United States). Neither were able to win, however, that honour going to a Honda commercial featuring cartoon bunnies and flying Honda engines.
It's funny they went with "Diorama", and not the campaign for Halo 3: ODST, which I thought was much better.
As for "Mountain", that's fine, it's a great ad. I'm just happy they showed a little sense/taste and didn't pick that awful Gears of War "Mad World" commercial.
