My favorite advert is:
I’m actually loving all of Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation Gin and Mint Cellular adverts. It is what content material advertising and marketing desires are fabricated from and so onbrand along with his signature off-beat humour.
And naturally, the Pepsi’s ‘We Will Rock You’ advert with Beyonce, Pink, and Britney is a traditional. Three legends, Queen and empowered ladies overthrowing a corrupt authorities? Iconic.
