They’re a Canadian brand though? I mentioned them to Americans and they don’t know what it is.

IKEA, Scotiabank

As a producer, doing an original spot for any auto brand typically involves some big budgets, travel, precision shooting etc , so while not glamorous you get to work kind of at the top of the Canadian Ad budget range kinda.

Surprisingly, the banks: BMO, TD and Tangerine to be exact. Even Scotiabank cranks out something good now and then.

@Creative 1:

BMO's World Cup spots are pretty great.

Scotiabank has a spot that sometimes I see on TV but more often when I go to the movies about the hoopla of investing that is really relatable.

TD's ad for their investing app is older, I know, but still is a great one. Hopefully they're running it on social so that the young people they're gearing it towards actually see it.

I’m into the Scottie Barnes content, kids got pizzaz. But it seems like a lot of tv work in Canada is suffering from the talent issue/strike. Lots of moving images and music but not a lot of strong storytelling/narrative/comedic stuff. That BMO guy is from the New Girl so maybe made in America? Was the ikea campaign done here? I cried…🙏

Ikea done here as well.

Most of the brands doing consistent tv work here aren't doing consistently good work.
Banks, grocery, auto.

Agreed. Occasional good spot on cdn TV, but no one's consistent.

The Lay's Canada World Cup TV spot with John Boyega is really great work.

People cheering is great work?
