Watching ads from another country feels a little bit like entering a parallel dimension. The humor is slightly different, the cultural touchstones aren’t quite the same, and sometimes the products aren’t even sold in your area (though that is changing rapidly in the wake of globalization). See what we mean at Walker Art Center, as the British Arrows return with another wild collection of commercials from the United Kingdom. Some feel like mini-movies, some use dark humor, and some look like they were very expensive to make (big-budget advertising: a universal language!). Regardless, these spots weren’t made for or targeted at you, so hopefully you’ll emerge from your viewing without a subliminal urge to buy something.
