More ads should have death-defying stunts

Enough with the tearjerkers and moving family stories. It's time for APAC adlanders to do some stunt work.

Like all squirrels, Ad Nut is no great fan of the death-dealing terrors you people call cars. But seeing a car jump from the top of one truck to another (in this ad Chevrolet ad from Brazil by Commonwealth//McCann)? That's awesome, even though we know the stunt is controlled and the only thing really at stake is the $50,000 car. If we learned anything from Jean-Claude Van Damme, it's that stunt ads work. So come on, APAC advertisers and agencies, let's see some more action.
