In 2021, there were many moments that stuck out -- and even made history. As the year wraps up, it’s time to reflect on what impacted us the most. From the knee slappers to the tearjerkers, we are taking a look at a few of the most notable marketing campaigns of 2021. As a top Denver marketing agency, we’re going to dive into the innovative techniques marketers are using today to create compelling campaigns that not only draw in new customers but spark important conversations too.
This famous beer brand’s latest advertisement is all about the importance of getting vaccinated (and being able to safely enjoy a beer with family and friends again soon). Samuel Adams’ “Your Cousin From Boston Gets Vaccinated” ad features a character who isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed. But even he made an appointment to get vaccinated against COVID-19. As a Denver ad firm, we’re always on the search for timely and meaningful ads, and this was one of our absolute favorites from the month of April.
“Tell us your marketing department is young and on TikTok without telling us your marketing department is young and on TikTok.” That’s a top comment on Coors’ latest commercial: America Has a New Thirst Trap, a 15-second ad promoting their new line of hard seltzer beverages. As a Denver marketing agency, we’re always on the search for emerging and innovative ads that are especially effective in reaching their target audience. And this ad brilliantly achieves exactly that.
On Super Bowl Sunday, the commercials matter almost as much as the game (if not more). And this year, despite all the craziness of COVID-19, they delivered. Though there were some big-name brands that didn't partake—such as Budwiser, who chose to donate the millions of dollars it would've spent on an ad to raising awareness about COVID-19 vaccines—many others still participated. This year, CBS charged approximately $5.5 million for a 30-second spot. That price tag was slightly less than previous years, but still a significant amount of money for any brand. As a top marketing company in Denver, we're breaking down five of our favorite Super Bowl ads from this year’s game.
Girls and women from every corner of the world watched on January 20th as Kamala Harris, the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, was sworn in as the first female Vice President of the United States. This historic milestone—and what it meant to young girls—was captured in a simple, but poignant film for Girl Up, a gender equality youth initiative of the UNF (United Nations Foundation). This short, purpose-driven advertisement titled “Today We Rise” was created in partnership with Ogilvy and Refinery29. And as a top marketing agency in Denver, we wanted to comment on what made this ad so impactful and special.
Robert Kelly went from world-renowned political pundit to internet sensation overnight in 2017 when his live interview on BBC News was charmingly interrupted by his young children. Long before the days of constant Zoom meetings and work-from-home orders, this type of interruption seemed almost novel. Thanks to the pandemic, they are now fairly commonplace. In Twitter’s most recent ad, Robert Kelly is back to show you how to stay focused and avoid distractions. And as a social media agency in Denver, we’re always on the lookout for engaging ads—especially with pop culture references—so we’re here to share our thoughts on this witty advertisement.
As the presidential race enters the final few weeks, we’ve all seen plenty of political ads. However, a new political ad in support of presidential-hopeful Joe Biden has caught everyone’s attention because it’s unlike any we’ve ever seen before. The ad centers on the fact that Donald Trump is the first U.S. president in more than 100 years who doesn’t have a dog. With the tagline, “choose your humans wisely,” the ad appeals to people across party lines through a beloved human interest: dogs. And it’s incredibly effective. Here’s why, according to a top Denver marketing firm.
A man shouts to a bus full of people on his morning commute that he’s browsed eight different sites for divorce attorneys. A woman whispers her login information to a stranger in a movie theatre. A commuter on her way from work tells a stranger her home is in 1,000 feet. A speed walker tells everyone he passes what his heart rate is. A woman shouts her credit card number over a microphone in the middle of a busy park. Some of these overshares are slightly embarrassing and some can be considered privacy violations, but they’re all examples from Apple’s most recent “Over Sharing” ad. And as a top Denver ad agency, we’re going to examine it closer and discuss what this privacy ad gets right.

Hopefully by now, you’ve seen the notorious Peloton ad: “The Gift That Gives Back.” The 30-second holiday advertisement for the Peloton stationary bike has been widely condemned, mocked, and criticized. The entire saga unfolded within a week and it was an incredibly turbulent experience to watch from the sidelines. Even though it was an international ad, we believe that there are some lessons to be learned from it which could improve your advertising in Denver. As a leading ad agency in the Denver area, we wanted to share our thoughts on the Peloton ad.
