2. NTT Docomo “How To Fry Shrimp In Under 3 Seconds”
NTT Docomo, Japan’s biggest mobile carrier, has released a wacky commercial to promote its new LTE network. The 60-second clip shows two women preparing shrimp. But instead of frying it, they load up a cannon and shoot the shrimp through a series of preparation stations until it’s cooked to perfection. So, how do you cook shrimp in under 3 seconds?

4. EDEKA “Cash Register Symphony”
This week’s number 4 is a tie between EDEKA and ABN AMRO. Using thirteen cameras and nine cashiers, unsuspecting shoppers at a branch of the Edeka supermarket chain in Germany were treated to an unique rendition of Jingle Bells.

4. ABN AMRO “New House Rollercoaster Tour”
This week’s number 4 is a tie between ABN AMRO and EDAKA. Instead of funding yet another advertising campaign, Dutch bank ABN AMRO decided to put their media budget to work and actually help clients with some free extra promotion to sell their house in quite a unique way: by building an indoor rollercoaster. With 5.9 million eyeballs on YouTube and Facebook (via VKmag and Heart for Counties) the house in Ermelo is reaching a bigger audience than possibly any house for sale in The Netherlands ever did.
5. WestJet “Christmas Miracle: Spirit of Giving”
