A couple of months ago we gave you a selection of some television advertisements for newspapers for the nightly video, and tonight we’ve found a few more good ones from around the globe that are worth a look:
— In this ad, from the Ziarul Financiar in Bucharest, Romania, a flirty woman at a caf? learns that there are some things men value more than “digits.”
— This one, about an older man’s longtime relationship with his newspaper is from The Times of India’s “Day in the Life” campaign.
— Newsrooms may be manic, but the Sun-Herald of Sydney, Australia, presents itself in a decidedly zen manner in this ad.
— Nothing makes you think “newspaper” more than hot young people partying by a pool, right? The Daily Times of Pakistan seems to think so.
— A child in this one doesn’t recognize his father without the French paper L’Equipe in front of his face.
— Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey Jr. star as SF Chron reporters in the new film “Zodiac.”.
— A trailer for “The Quiet American,” the very good recent film starring Michael Caine as foreign correspondent Fowler in Vietnam of the 1950s..
— President Rush Limbaugh? Veep Ann Coulter?.
— Special preview of the great Richard Thompson’s forthcoming antiwar song..
— Fox’s answer to “The Daily Show,” with a conservative edge. It’s called “The 1/2 Hour News Hour.”.
— Robert Novak blows his stack — at longtime partner, Rowland Evans..
