Lions ad campaigns have really improved over the years. I think the funniest, edgiest ads we see locally have been from the Lions. The past couple of years the campaign was "You Need Some Football" which mocked metrosexual men, Drummer God I think you posted some of them a couple months back.

yep i did...here they are again, if u want to see:

Outstanding. EVERY team's marketers could learn from these. This is the kind of marketing the CFL needs, regularly and often.

For some reason I can't seem to see the Eskimo one :?

hey...thats true...they dont make fun of the eskies for some reason.

Probably feel sorry for them.

I was all set to take a look at the Hamilton one and start an argument, but then I saw it and thought, "Hey, I think I know that guy!" :lol:

Who wants to make fun of the "City of Champions" anyway :roll: :lol:
Laughed out loud at the Sask. one :wink:

BB one made me smile, tho :smiley:
Good stuff!

They have too much respect for the Eskimos to make fun of them. :slight_smile:

...omigod you do NOT want to see the EE one...it is nightmarishly scary...I picked it up off a (honest to God) russian website and gave me the willies....

...and be honest Big Dave, that is you in the Ticat version...the 'Big' is to throw us off isn't it?!...

Hey no holding out on us! We can handle nightmarishly scary! lol

A russian website you say?

Edit: Nevermind I found it. She looks like Tammy Fay Baker =)

Two observations:

  1. I just realized emoticons transcend language barriers. (See Russian site.) If we can come up with an emoticon to express every type of sentiment, we will finally have a true universal language. Bu-bye, Esperanto.

  2. I think the French guy's goatee was drawn with a magic marker.

Ha, no kidding, eh?

I liked the Montreal one best ...

Isn't it weird that this web site from Russia is showing CFL ads, and that people are commenting on it and we can't understand what they're saying?

Judging by the emoticons, it appears that a lot of people like them.

I do not know if Wally had something to do with this but in the late 90's they had similar ads and yes they are funny. I wish all teams did this.
