5 Ads To Get You Back Into The Post-Labor Day Grind

As Labor Day weekend comes to a close today, you may need some motivation to get moving like a horde of hungry zombies. It’s not easy putting your nose back to the proverbial grindstone, but it’s what must be done.

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve compiled five ads achieving great viral-dom. Play. Listen. Relax and  repeat. That should do it.

The first ad, for television channel AMC, is campaigning for satellite TV network Dish to reinstate the channel that shows   The Walking Dead, having previously dropped it from its cheaper tariffs. Hidden cameras capture the shocked reactions of New Yorkers who encounter the re-animated corpses attempting to hold down jobs and  act human.

This Mountain Dew spot is   the final work of Tony Scott, who recently took his own life at age 68. He directed hundreds of ads—many of them award winners. This last ad features Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban trying to tempt a diehard Diet Dew fan with untold riches in exchange for the last bottle at a convenience store.

This new Axe spot reaffirms the brand ‘s worldview by literally reducing a woman to a headless, walking pair of breasts. In the Axe universe, people aren’t greater than the sum of their parts—they are their parts. So you’d better make them look and  smell desirable.

The battle for the Ultrabook market is heating up. And Acer thought it was time to bring in the big guns, aka Jack Bauer aka Kiefer Sutherland . And besides blowing stuff up and  intimidating people Jack/Kiefer has another deep passion: Cupcakes.

Team   Red Bull has habit of collecting the craziest best athletes from snowboarding, skydiving, surfing, and  every other “extreme sport” every created to be on their team. In this video we get a chance to see the 2012 Red Bull Wind Tunnel Team called the Soul Flyers, perform amazingly choreographed flying routine in Skydive Arena Prague‘s high speed vertical wind tunnel in the Czech Republic.
