Well-executed Cyber Monday ads can be a joy to watch. They do more than just tell you what the specials are. They pull you into a story, make you care about a brand, and leave you eager to learn more about their products, even after the Cyber Week sale is over
Video ads can be a huge asset during the holiday period, and the exciting kickoff is the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. People spend an average of $335 per person during that four-day period and the right ad can help you tap into that.
If you’re ready to create an awesome ad in minutes, head over to our template section and pick your favorite. But if you’d like a bit of extra inspiration, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Cyber Monday ads. (Check out Black Friday favorites here.)
Chubbies: Thighber Monday
This fun ad is irreverent and more than a little ridiculous. It doesn’t so much advertise Chubbies as capture the spirit of the brand.
The ad shows off a lot of Chubbies products in a fun scenario. Because everyone knows wearing your Chubbies outfit will turn you into the hero your shopping experience deserves, right?

Target steers straight into the cuteness with this ad about a brother and sister talking about Cyber Monday savings while surrounded by adorable Minions. The Minion catchphrase “Bananas” draws attention to just how awesome their 15% off sale is.
