How Classic Ads Might Look In The Social Media Era

1959


Dublin-based advertising creative and copywriter Eoin Conlon has revamped a series of classic ads to bring them “up-to-date” with the social media era.

Re-working iconic ads from companies like Volkswagen, Rolls-Royce and Apple, he imagined how they will look like if social media networks like Facebook and Twitter were available in the past.

Turning the print ads into 140 characters long tweets, interactive ads and Facebook sponsored posts, he shows how high-tech is not always better when it comes to advertising.

For instance, Apple’s memorable “1984” ad would not have made quite as much of an impact if it has been presented as an annoying YouTube pre-roll ad—viewers would probably have missed it by clicking on the “Skip Ad” option.

Scoll down to see more of these intriguing new-old ads.
