This week’s winner is Mailchimp. We have featured them before, but this time they absolutely wowed with a wonderful surrealistic approach. There's a bit of Wes Anderson, a bit of Dali and a lot of art in these ads. We can only imagine and admire the amount of effort that went into their creation.

Another surrealistic delight comes from Fiverr. These ads aren't as luxurious as the ones above, but the thought process behind them is similarly exciting.

What is better than a testimonial? A clear demonstration. In these ads Burrow is showcasing their customer service and their products' durability in a way that hardly leaves space for doubt.

A quarantine joke and a sausage dog as a way to fit in more CTAs.  We'd imagine Barkbox had fun coming up with this idea.

A sweet example of brand awareness ads from Society6. It reminds us of those beautiful rustic food blogs people subscribe to in order to imagine how one day they too will get a cabin in the woods and convert to slow living.

While it's somewhat bordering on cheesy, this ad from Shopify is a good example of empathetic COVID-related ad that's not going to annoy too many people.

While we're not entirely sure what this slogan has to do with ketchup, we have to appreciate how this ad from Heinz knowingly or unknowingly channels this classic scene from Shawshank Redemption.

This Rubik's cube of an ad from Interior Define to remind us all that there is always more than one linear way to present your product's USPs.
