Since it’s listed as posted by Belgium’s Proximity BBDO (BBDO is ebay’s agency of record), this :20 video is probably real. And definitely real funny. It’s the best use of current events in advertising I’ve seen in quite awhile. And it’s the best Holiday ad I’ve seen this season, because it gets right to the heart of the true meaning of Christmas—people at gatherings getting shit they don’t want/need tossed to (or at) them. It’s also a wonderful example of what makes a great spot: a great idea, not a million dollar production budget. Just Imagine how much Bush could get for those shoes…he could put the money towards the auto bailout plan…or donate it to needy women’s organizations (ha)…or set it aside for the reconstruction of Iraq (nah).
