Thai Commercials
Posted 7/14/14
I believe that Thai advertisers are the best in the world. They really know how to connect with people and strike their emotions. Here are a few examples:

Cellphone company commercial

Life insurance commercial

I understand that they're made to sell stuff and that the companies' goals are still to make profit, but seen by themselves, these commercials are inspiring. They show us real people living real lives. They make us feel. They give us something to think about. It's very rare to find such great writing and storytelling being implemented in western ads. They rely too much on physical beauty and the allure of grandeur that they fail to connect to their biggest audience. I wish more commercials were like this, to be honest. Maybe I wouldn't hate them so much or skip them all the time if they were.

How about you, what do you think of these?

I love these commercials. I didn't see that particular life insurance commercial but I saw some of the other more sad ones. All of them are great though.

This is the one I always think of most with them.

Np! It was actually kind of funny that you made this thread since for some unknown reason I was just thinking about these commercials and was interested in watching them again.

Another good one.

Seriously wish America had people in advertising with these kinds of minds. It's weird to say it about a commercial but they really do make you think about things more.

Well, someone posted on Facebook so I thought I'd share it here and see if other people know about them.

That was really good. I noticed both things were from the same insurance company as the one I posted. I'm seeing a trend here now. Lol..

I wondered why her hair was flying all over the place at the end. A Pantene commercial...and it's just as good as the others. Thanks for the link!

A couple more I found. Subtitles can be rough but still good.
