Ad Week's Best Ads for 2013

It's that time of year when we take a moment to recap, and enjoy, the creative works of the past year. I'm sharing the list from Ad Week's 2013 Best of list, but I have one to add.

What are some common threads among these ads? And which one(s) spoke to you, and why?

Kmart "Ship My Pants" Agency: Draftfcb, Chicago

Chipotle "The Scarecrow" Agency: CAA Marketing, Los Angeles

Robinsons "Pals" (One of our Kearley favorites, too) Agency: BBH, London

Volvo Trucks "The Epic Split feat." 

Agency: Forsman & Bodenfors, Sweden

Nike "Possibilities" Agency: Wieden + Kennedy, Portland, Ore.

Dick's Sporting Goods "Every Pitch" Agency: Anomaly, New York

Geico "Hump Day" (Funny, and have  you seen the Dallas Mavericks spoof?!)  Agency: The Martin Agency, Richmond, Va.

Guinness "Basketball" (We loved this one!) 
Agency: BBDO, New York

RAM "Farmer" (a crowd pleaser!) 
Agency: The Richards Group, Dallas

Dove "Real Beauty Sketches" (A cool approach - get the tissues)

And one that didn't make the list that I really love - this one made me snort with laughter.
