Quaker Oats: Go Humans Go
Posted by Rosepixie on November 1, 2009
This is an ad for Quaker Oats that I saw while watching something on Hulu.
I love this ad to bits. Everything about it is awesome. You start out wondering what’s going on, but it’s sweet and comforting. Then they throw in awesome jet packs! And it becomes clear – Quaker Oats give you fuel (i.e. are good for breakfast).
And to top it off, you get the great tagline – “Go humans go”. I think this tagline works perfectly for this ad for so many reasons. Not only does it reflect the idea of Quaker Oats being fuel (allowing humans to “go”, since they are well fueled), but it also reflects the spirit of innovation that is so human. That idea is carried through the ad with the jet packs, which are sort of a symbol of futuristic innovation. In the future, we’ll all fly everywhere with jet packs and flying cars, all made possible by invention and innovation. Go humans, go!
Thank you, Quaker Oats, for making such an amazing ad. It is easily among the best I’ve seen.
