Browse the controversies (mostly complaints about copycats), ads from Romania and Iceland and Belgium, or last year's best ads. Many of the most amusing seem to be for beer.

Those damn Stella ads. I'm getting really tired of being advertised to by Stella every time I see a decent movie at an indie theater. I guess they're giving some aspiring filmmakers a chance to do some fun work, but it takes a lot away from a moderately amusing short film when it's capped with a giant Stella logo.

I'm not Stella's target demographic anyway, in that I prefer beer that is good; but if I had drunk Stella before, I wouldn't now.

That evolution one was pretty amazing. I always like it when advertising agencies are given the freedom to something more creative than just jam a product in front of our eyes and tell us we should buy it.

Thanks for this! My dad used to download the best ads he could find, back before the few websites that he visited were shut down. This will make him pretty happy.

That PSA one is difficult to watch. Excellently done.

I know we've all seen this ad, but I still think it's brilliant.

Just an old dutch ad for your amusement.

Another funny Dutch ad. (NSFW)

The PSA somehow reminded me of another Down Under ad. Both really grab your attention (as they should).
