Word, Thought and Deed ft. Waitrose, Telegraph, AXA

These video ads showcase brands, reflecting their values and actions to the world.

We run the full gamut of thought, word and deed in the ads in this week's Video Worth Sharing.We're all made up of the things we think, say and do.

And businesses are no different.

So it's no wonder that the topics of word, thought and deed are a ripe area of analysis for the advertising of numerous organisations and brands.

Let's see what we can learn from this week's Video Worth Sharing about how businesses display themselves, their values and their actions to the world.


Video Worth Sharing #31

The Telegaph | Words Are Powerful

It's the Telegraph's job to care deeply about words, so it's no surprise they invested in this new TV ad. In just 40 seconds you get a sense of the nuance behind every headline. This video doesn't just celebrate everything the brand holds dear, but it also explains why they exist in the first place.



Waitrose | Cow Cam

In the fight againt their competitors, Waitrose are keen to show off the real milk that comes from real cows on real farms. This ad is based on an incredibly simple concept, but its plain honesty goes a long way to building trust in the brand and proving the values it stands for.



AXA | The Dancer

An example of the current trend of documentary-style videos sweeping through advertising, this ad from insurance firm AXA shows how the research the business invests in improves everyday lives. It's an attempt to make the brand seem more human, and it succeeds.
