Outstanding Vancouver Olympic Ads

Keeping with the Winter Olympic theme i couldn't resist sharing these two spots that i love.

The first is the Coca Cola snowball fight in the Olympic village. I love the fun loving air of playing, i think it's a great light to shine on the olympics because, though it is serious competition - in the end it is all a game isn't it?

The second is this Nike spot appropriately called "Human Chain" from director Brian Beletic of smuggler and VFX from MassMarket. it reminds me a bit of one of my
all time favorite spots, "What Goes Around Comes Around" could be why i enjoy it so much. I do love the visual of needing a team of yourself to accomplish your goals, it makes me think of countless training sessions, trial runs, failed attempts and the repetition required to become a champion.
