Global Military Recruitment Ads

by Henry Lambert in TV Advertising

Ad Lab have compiled a YouTube playlist of military recruitment ads from around the world.

As you’d expect the majority are soaked in patriotism but overall they mostly feel like expensively shot corporate videos rather than finely tuned advertising. However, the Swedish work, illustrated above, really stands out.

ebbflowmovies.jpg

The New York Times has published a fantastic interactive graph of the ebb and flow of movie box office sales.

“Summer blockbusters and holiday hits make up the bulk of box office revenue each year, while contenders for the top Oscar awards tend to attract smaller audiences that build over time.”

It’s interesting to see how the shape of the graph has changed in recent times. Gone are the smaller peaks and longer tails of the 80s. In come huge spikes and shorter tales in the 00s.
