Top 6 Arabic Commercial Advertisements in the Middle East



In this post, we have compiled what we thought were some of the most well-done Arabic commercials in the Middle East. Many of these will be entertaining regardless of whether or not you speak Arabic, but we have also included a description of each advertisement and why we thought it was so amazing. If you have any examples of Arabic commercials you think should be on this list be sure to let us know in the comments below.


McDonalds Arabia

To the tune of Meatloaf's famous song, "I would do anything for Love (but I won't do that)," a modern-day Romeo goes to tremendous lengths for his lover in this Arabic ad.


According to the advertisement, two love-struck Egyptians would do everything for love, at least until they arrive to McDonald's. It becomes evident that Romeo's real passion is McDonald's French fries when she gets a sandwich instead of a combination meal and then wants to share his fries. Because of their disagreement, the two fight and separate, indicating that McDonald's is indeed that wonderful.


Coca-Cola

This Ramadan 2013 Coca-Cola commercial showcases the beauty of the time of year when people of all colors and backgrounds join together for breakfast. Coca-Cola makes an emotional plea to Arab families by depicting all of the wonderful aspects of Ramadan, such as family, friends, food, and decorations, as well as the community's cohesiveness at this time. With Coke serving as the highlight of several of the scenarios, the company transforms its product into a necessary part of the holiday.

Toyota HiLux

This Toyota Arabia ad does an excellent job of incorporating their HiLux vehicle into one of the most crucial events in a young Arab's life: asking permission to marry his bride's family. The young Arab is interrogated about what he does and has done, and because to his HiLux experiences, he is able to inflate his achievements to his potential in-laws.


While dragging a school bus full of youngsters, he states that we are working on outstanding projects for future great leaders. He claims to be aiding in military special operations when he isn't playing with his truck in the desert and guiding a military convoy where to go.


He claims to invest in agriculture when he just drives his truck to buy a load of fruit. Finally, he claims to be consulting with renowned engineers when, in reality, he is driving his HiLux truck to a construction site carrying cinderblocks. Without exaggerating, Toyota closes the commercial by highlighting that the HiLux has a lot of power.


IKEA

In this commercial from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we see tension as an older Saudi couple has a group of Saudi youth pulls up alongside them at a traffic light blaring rap music. However, as the commercial progresses we can see the camera pan out and you will notice that both the older couple and the youth have the same style couch from IKEA tied to the roofs of their vehicles and then both groups smile at each other.


The ad does an amazing job of passing the message that though there may be differences between the young and the old they can agree that IKEA is a great place to buy affordable stylish furniture.


MTV


Mobinil

During Ramadan, some of the finest ads in the Middle East are released, and this is certainly the case with this Mobinil commercial. During Ramadan, Mobinil offered twice the minutes and SMS messages, and they showed the deal with this clever commercial.


The commercial depicts a popular action movie actor murdering the villain at the end of a film, but the evil continues reappearing every time you think it's finished. This demonstrates to the audience that they may believe their minutes and SMS messages are used up just to discover that they have additional minutes and SMS messages to spend with Mobinil.


Creating a marketing plan that really has an impact on your business is one thing, while the other is having the best digital marketing agency in Bahrain by your side and we at Promoseven Holdings are there for you.
