    For the second year in a row, Coldwell Banker is launching an ad campaign during awards show season. "Home Sweet Home" launches during the GRAMMY Awards on Jan. 26. If you're like me and tend to think of the Mötley Crüe song that shares a name with Coldwell Banker's ad, then you're in luck; the rock ballad is used throughout the ad, which betters explains why a real estate company is buying air time during the GRAMMYs. The ad is simple, but effectively tells a story that …

  • NEW! Macklemore and Ryan Lewis 'Surprise' Riders, Perform On New York City Bus
    I'm not sure I would label this a surprise, but Macklemore and Ryan Lewis did board a New York bus and perform their hit "Can't Hold Us" to promote the pair's announcement that they will perform live at the Grammys on Jan. 26. The bus riders start the ride looking at the Grammy-nominated duo with skepticism, but warm up quickly, getting out of their seats to jump and dance. The whole stunt looks fun, but it's the "surprise" part I don't buy. The bus seemed to get really full throughout the video, …

    A picture is worth a thousand words and I wish the TV ad for the Nokia Lumia 1520 spent less time talking and more time highlighting the phone's strengths, like taking high res, camera-quality pictures. A couple return from an exotic "Safari" and their friends are eager to hear all the details. What kinds of animals did the couple see? Rather than whip out their camera to stream the pictures, the pair struggles to find any words to describe their once in a lifetime getaway. Not until the tail end of the ad does …
