Comments and Nominations
Post your comments and nominate your favorite advertisement.

  Contact Information
Asian Media Watch

Watch some of the best commercials featuring APAs such as this Oreo cookie commercial or this one. Then nominate some of the best that you’ve seen and send us the video tapes, web links, and print clippings. And don’t forget to go buy a case of OREO Cookies, and tell advertisers and Hollywood that Asian Pacific American consumers are watching.

Watch commercials for Coca Cola, Dodge, Lexus, Oreo, Oscar Meyer, and T-Mobile with more posted as we receive them.

Advertisers get it. They want your business, want to appeal to the largest audience of consumers, and you’re more likely to see television and print advertising featuring a variety of people that is a more representative cross-section of American society: Asian Pacific/Black/Causasian/Hispanic/Native Americans and women than in motion pictures.

So, nominate your favorite commercials of 2004/2005 by e-mailing us.

Submit your nominations for these suggested categories:

  • Best Commercials Featuring APA Actors Among a Diverse Cast
  • Best Commercials Featuring an APA Lead Actor (male)
  • Best Commercials Featuring an APA Lead Actor (female)
  • Best Commercials Featuring an APA Family
  • Best Commercials Featuring an APA Child

or for similar categories for print and Internet advertising, or suggest your own categories.

Tell us what advertising you feel is the best of the best, and send us your video tapes, web links, and print clippings.

Please include the date/time that you saw the advertisement, television station/web link/publication, satellite/cable provider, and your city and state with your submission. Nominations should be for English language advertising produced in 2004 or 2005, and distributed to a U.S./Canadian audience. The Asian Media Watch Best of APAs in Advertising will be chosen based on the amount of feedback that we receive.

The posting of advertisements on AMW is done as part of the search for Asian Media Watch’s Best of APAs™ in Advertising, and is not an endorsement for any product or service. No considerations have been received in exchange for the posting of advertisements.

Update 11/22: The T-Mobile commercial is in the running for best commercial and best commercial featuring an APA family.

    I\’m always amazed that people will actually choose to sit in front of the television and just be savaged by stuff that belittles their intelligence.
