When the Pitch is so Great you Forget There is a Product Being Promoted!


I was sent a video for a product – not to promote the product, but instead to see the ad, and to learn more about the agency behind the ad.

The ad is brilliant and for me, as a Canadian, I found the skating part, and then the water part to be the best. I am still smiling and I’m going to watch it yet again.

So I wanted to share it.

Enjoy.

For Any Night When You Just Don’t Feel Like Cooking: JUST EAT. So Quick. So Easy.


Parents, you know what it’s like, right? You want to have family dinners together and you want to take the kids to their activities, and you want to clean the house and there are still errands to run, shopping to be done, and don’t forget work…

So some nights you just don’t have it in you to cook, or maybe it’s a special occasion, but there has never been an easier way to order food in The Urban Daddy household, than using JUST EAT.  All we have to do is order online and within minutes we can easily navigate through their website for a convenient and easy way to order food.

Take Saturday night, for example.

We visited http://www.just-eat.ca, entered our postal code, and within seconds were browsing the closest options for dinner.  Choosing Indian Food, we picked 5 things off the menu and sent off the order to be processed and just 30 minutes later, we received the most delicious dinner from our local Indian Food restaurant, Clove the Spice.  The food came piping hot, the containers were packed full, and the food was fantastic.

The delivery experience was great and as an added bonus, we can either choose to tip the driver online when we order, or give cash at the door if we so choose.  The food came, it was handed over and within minutes we were eating.

This time we ordered our food through their new free JUST EAT App.  It is available on iOS and Android devices, and this JUST EAT App really puts local delivery and pickup restaurants in the palm of our hands so we did not have to wait until we were home to order our dinner.

If you are not yet sold on the idea, it really is this easy:

Tap in your postal code and JUST EAT matches it to delivery in your area.  Pick one that looks good.  Buy the most delicious things on the menu.  Place the order securely, pay with card or cash on delivery.

You’re in good hands.JELogo

In addition, when using JUST EAT for online ordering of food, you are eligible for exclusive 20% (or more) discounts on many delivery choices, plus you can check restaurant feedback from other JUST EATers before you order.  That feedback is crucial when trying a place for the first time and it allows the restaurant owners to see where they need to step up their game and make the corrections or risk losing business.
