What if these were the Top Ten funniest TV ads in Cannes 2012?

Direct TV: Don’t wake up in a roadside ditch


The Cannes Lions advertising festival comes to an end tonight. Lips are still sealed about which ad won the Grand Prix for Film that will be handed out at 8 PM in the Grand Auditorium at the Palais des Festivals. But I can already tell you that just like the Grand Prix for Branded Content, which will also be given later tonight, it’s a piece of film that you’ve already seen on my blog within the past 12 months. While waiting for the official announcements, I’ve decided to show within our weekly #adLOL section the funniest TV ads that made it to the Cannes short list. Here then is my Top 10, starting with one the funniest clip from last year’s DirectTV campaign (above)—which I already wrote about last January—all the films of the entire campaign are worth a look! I’ll skip reposting the big campaigns that i’ve already written #adLOL entries about like Skittles, BGH Air Conditioners, or Axe. But I can’t help but continue the rest of the list with the funniest French TV ad of the year with the bear of Canal Plus, of which it’s being rumored about in Cannes that it should not only win for Film, but also for Craft. Have fun!

Canal Plus: Bear

Krispy Kernels: Couch

Popsy: Swedish Truck Drivers

Andes: Ballerina

Walmart: Skin Products
