The Best Music Magazine Ads Ever

Five brilliant TV spots. Brilliant.

1. Nirvana

2. Kanye West

3. Radiohead

4. The Smiths

5. Animal Collective

Sweet Mothers of Invention, these are good. I know they’ll be “too weird” for many of you. Well, you’re all wrong. It’s a music magazine, the ads should be weird. Plus, I’ve played drums since I was six, so there.

The concept, the casting, the sets, the voiceover (who sounds like industry-famous Doug Jeffers—who voiced the excellent Errol Morris Miller High Life commercials—but it could be a sound-a-like).

Shit, I wish I had done these.

Ad agency: Latinworks, Austin.
