“DrenCo” Brand-Vision Flash Commercials
“Ripomatic” Mock TV Ads
These Flash presentations — mostly slideshows (loosely) set to music — demonstrate my ability to provide an engaging, memorable vision and tagline for each of several fictitious brands of familiar types of products from a fictitious “DrenCo” corporation.
Because these mock commercials are “ripomatics” (composed of images openly copied from various sources, in Fair Use, for research and reference only) they are not posted online; they may be viewed in person. The images, and music, below are in the Public Domain.
“Have some scary stuff to clean?”
Accompanied by some comically spooky music, a (haunted) house needs DrenKleen for some powerful cleaning: messy spills (from a witch's cauldron), dirty floors (in the tomblike basement, prowled by a mummy), nasty pet odors (from a werewolf), etc.
Luxury Fashion Goods
Accompanied by runway music, incredibly beautiful people model incredibly beautiful clothing that sets the style but never goes out of style.
Accompanied by salsa music, neon-outlines of dancing men and women light up the dark, in this ad targeting the Hispanic American market.
“Because You Cherish Life”
Accompanied by low-key Gospel music, memorable and everyday moments in the lives of various families are celebrated, in this ad targeting the African-American market.
Hotels & Resorts
“We Love the City but Sometimes ...”
After a brief, romanticized view of a city at night, a frantic montage of traffic, graffiti, unsafe neighborhoods, and other frustrations and perils of city life, accompanied by frenetic urban music, suddenly gives way to silence, on a tropical shore — “Ahh, that’s better.”
“Come ‘n’ Get It!”
Accompanied by some ragtime piano music, comic clips from black-and-white silent films make the case for going out and grabbing some food for the gang, at the local Doug’s fast-food restaurant. Want a DrenKola with that Double Doug’s burger?
Feminine Hygiene Products
“All You Need ... And Want”
With only silence in the background, the titling (and/or female narration) sensitively, yet directly asks the questions most important to women, about comfort, dependability, and so on. The answer, “Drenti-Mates. All you need ... and want.”
“Invest Your Trust in Us.”
Without music, the titling (and/or narrator with gravitas) states how Drenkow Financial understands what investors value the most. Ultimately, “Invest your trust in us.”
