Ad Breakdown Episode 1 of 2022

The Omega Speedmaster Ad

This ad is such a ridiculously good ad (and short too).

Been long I did an ad breakdown, so lemme share something with you guys today.

How can a man in a $27,000 suit settle for a $235 watch?

Headline opens up with curiosity – how all headlines should be

Shockingly, it also reminds me of this video of Eminem talking about his wristwatch

First paragraph – rarity/exclusivity.

2nd paragraph – prestige

3rd paragraph – ruggedness, efficiency & durability.

Last paragraph – legacy.

Everything you need in a wristwatch.

Because of the Eminem video, I got inspired to create an ad for G-Shock.

I did this under 10 minutes & I didn’t even edit it๐Ÿ˜†


How Can a Man Worth $230 Million Settle For a $100 Watch?

Two things that are constantly preached to entertainers:

1. To ensure they makes move that make financial sense.

2. To think and act with the long term in mind.

None of which is surprising either.

Even though you’d hardly expect entertainers as vibrant and eccentric as they are to listen to this, so imagine our shock when we found the G-Shock on rapper Eminem.

But when you think about it, the G-Shock is designed for the job to withstand the rigors of always being on the road and performing in front of crowds who grab at you.

You don’t want to lose your $1 Million wristwatch to a group of moshers and crazy fans.

And you can wear it everyday without being afraid it would scratch.

As an entertainer, you can always give it away…and get another one later.

It might be just $100 to you, but priceless to a fan.

And that is what everyday performer wants to give their fans above all else – MEMORABLE MOMENTS to be remembered by.

Plus, don’t forget the greatest rapper of all time, Eminem wears a G-Shock too.

So if you’re wearing a G-Shock, you should be proud of it – 15 Grammys, multiple platinum albums, diamond certified singles, ten Billboard number ones, an Oscar and 220 million albums shipped worldwide.

For any other watch, the G-Shock would be too much.

Now that’s cool!

You don’t don’t need to call your financial adviser to confirm if you can get a G-Shock.

It’s just $100.

That makes financial sense too.

Let’s do it together with a G-Shock.
