Hello,
I'm sharing the collection of 31 TV ads of Leonard Cohen's albums, concerts, etc.

Some of them are pretty good. This one is genial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q90TiQmup1o

Roman,

I have never seen these before. They are FANTASTIC!

My favorite most visually beautiful are Dear Heather 2nd version, and Greatest Hits Germany. Live in London Sweden at a minute is brilliant - no talk, just him singing The Future, easily sells itself. The Brut commercial from France is great. I was disappointed that in Duel from Romania, LC's music is featured, yet there is no photo of him. And, Cinema Canada makes me wish I lived there so I could watch on Thursday nights.

Thank you so much for bringing these to us!

Best regards,
Mary

(P.S. You're right - I also noticed that there are too many Hallelujahs, but I guess that is the song that most people not 'in the know' associate with him.)

Mary,

I'm pleased that you enjoy this.

Speaking about Hallelujah - I like the Australian clips. They used the 2 most famous songs, but it's done with love and very professionally.
And yes, both ads of Greatest Hits are superb. The compilation itself is awful (just remember the cut Waiting for the Miracle), but advertisment was great.

P.S.
The first (hope, not the last) addition - the ingenious Hungarian ad, produced by creative agency "720".

I can't download from Ina anything - will try to capture the stream of French ads soon.
You're right, it could be a great dvd 8)

Lol, I see Croatian ad for Nadel's book I edited and updated for Croatian publisher :) Btw, there was also my short interview (2-3mins.) shot in their main bookstore at the main square here in Zagreb but I never saw it.

I saw once the list of all Cohen TV stuff and appearances, it was much longer (but included airings of documentaries, uses of songs in soundtrack etc.), but I guess this is everything which is available online. I know Croatian TV had ads for London CD/DVD as well, and for the show.

This is everything relating to TV ads. The rules of the game are precise ;-)
