Monday Funday: The North Face, Cheerios & Nike

We believe Mondays should not be mundane. The start of the week should not be bleak. The first day should not be the worst day. That’s why we created a weekly roundup of quality content with a sense of humour, to make Mondays into Fundays.

Korea opportunities

Are you tired of boring retail environments? Sick of just picking up your chosen product, carrying it to the till and paying without any kind of extreme sports component to the experience? Then you need to visit The North Face’s new store in South Korea, which forces customers to put their outdoor skills to the test before they’ve even bought anything.

 

My Korean is pretty rusty, but I think the screen at 0:58 says: “In 30 seconds the wall behind you will be electrified.”

Cereal offender

Because nothing say ‘great parenting’ like feeding your kids high-sugar breakfast cereals. The premise might be off, but this video is still funny.

 

From the ha-ha-harchives

Nike has been doing great content for so long it sometimes seems like all the good taglines are now used up. Let’s look back to a simpler time, when all you needed to make a great ad was a sense of humour and 10-20 of the world’s greatest footballers (plus Silvain Wiltord). Funniest bit – Totti’s haircut.

And if you didn’t get enough Thierry Henry…

Where next?
