Social media has been such a great tool to share our lives with each other, but it has also opened up a new battleground for brands to vie for our attention. What started out as blatant call to action type of ads to buy the latest products from Brand X , has now turned into brilliant videos that give these brands mind share by pulling on our heart strings through well crafted stories.
As you all know, or should by reading the title of the article, the time to honor our fathers and the fathers in our lives for showering us with their unconditional love — may it be tough or even go unsaid — and all they’ve done for your family and for their respective families has come once again. It’s Father’s Day and we’ve compiled our Top 5 Father’s Day Branded Videos for you guys to enjoy.
Be warned though, onion-wielding ninjas may be in the area to make your eyes water a little bit. You have been warned!
Kwentong Jollibee: Entrance Exam
Woo! Grabe! We started off the list with a doozy of a video. Well done, Jollibee. Did the ninjas attack? There’s definitely one lurking somewhere in HQ.
McDonald’s: Para sa Mga Tatay
Simple, effective, and downright cute! We certainly have memories of our Dad’s and/or our Grandpa’s taking us on one on one trips to McDonald’s just to bond or may be as a reward for a job well done at school.
How many times has your Dad come to your rescue? Globe reminds us that our Dad’s may have gone through a lot while we were growing up. Let them know that they’re the best and give them some love.
Selecta: How to Make Her Sagot Through Kulit
A bit of misdirection here from Selecta! We started off wondering if this was another #hugot type of ad, but it turned out to be a pretty sweet one.
Get it. Sweet one. Ice cream. Ok. Ok. We’ll stop.
Smart: Teach Dad Today
Damn! That ninja is back! This may be the same Father’s Day ad Smart ran last year, but it’s still very relevant today. Be patient with your old man when he asks you about how to use an app or how to use a certain function on his smartphone. After all, he did have a hand at teaching you to use the toilet.
Well, that’s about it. We certainly hope you’ve enjoyed these 5 awesome Father’s Day branded videos as much as we have.
To all you fathers, grandfathers, fathers-to-be, if you’re a single mom who has to fulfill both Mom and Dad roles, or even if you are just a father figure to someone, Happy Father’s Day from all of us in Team Unbox. We all hope you have a great day with your loved ones.
