I’ve had several interesting, sometimes controversial, commercials show up through my in-box the last few days. Some old, some new.
Great examples to use in class either for teaching advertising or ethics (or both!).
They are also just a lot of fun.
Renault commercial for electric cars for New Zealand

Motorcyclists have been outraged over this ad for the Nissan Juke

Classic cruelty-to-animals Ford SportKa commercials
Ford has been generating attention for its European market SportKa with cruelty-to-animals themed commercials for at least five years.
