Simple and effective!
Good example of how production and music can elevate even the mundane and make it look glamorous.
An unexpected turn of events in this simple spot by Michael Clowater. Might be a good treatment and reference for a particular Mexican QSR client of ours.
Moderately interesting things can happen if the target is changed at times :)
Another interesting treatment by Samir Mallal. The soundtrack is a classic albeit overused. The treatment of the voiceover is what really grabbed my attention.
Looking for directors/editors/sound folks to work with on an upcoming TV Commercial and rediscovered this gem by director Samir Mallal, edited by Ross Birchall from Saints.
Beldent chewing gum commissioned this social experiment which is now going viral. At the Museum of Contemporary Art of Buenos Aires, a slew of twins were placed around a room. One twin was chewing gum while the other simply sat motionless. When asked questions about the twins, nearly 70% of visitors reacted more positively to the one chewing gum.

The Hans Brinker Budget Collection 08/09
The Lost and Found Office at the Hans Brinker Budget Hotel, Amsterdam, contains a wide selection of other people’s property.Dearly missed teddy bears, sleeping bags, T-shirts and electric toothbrushes… all gathering dust in the hotel’s gloomy vaults. The Brinker could have spared no effort in returning these beloved items to their owners. Instead, it spared little effort to transform the missing pieces into a limited edition series of peerlessly beautiful designs—items that are as practical as they are chic. Thus THE HANS BRINKER BUDGET COLLECTION was born. Agency: KesselsKramer
In a huge promotional event, online gambling site Gnuf has helicopter-dropped a pair of giant dice down a mountain in Nuuk, Greenland. Standing about 7 feet tall and weighing in at around 1,200 pounds a pop, each die was constructed like a tank, with its steel frame enclosed by steel sheets, all protecting its surely steel heart. And while we can't condone gambling, we can condone airlifting deadly gigantic dice to be haphazardly flung down a mountainside. You know, purely in the name of scientific interest or an especially slow game of Monopoly.
There’s Power in Every Post.
To raise awareness for experiential learning like MINDDRIVE, we built an electric car that converts social activity into energy. Through your tweets, posts, shares and likes we had enough fuel to get us from K.C. to D.C., where we held a Congressional Hearing, sponsored by the ASME and the IEEE, to drive change in education. Our focused conversation was around the impact of experiential, hands-on learning on creating a direct link to STEM-related jobs and it was very well received.
Just when you thought it was all about the car, turns out its for insurance. The spot dragged the gag along for just long enough so one begins to question for a bit if this is real or not. Well paced, well directed, well done!
The Canadian Tourism Commission challenged 35 million Canadians to capture their country on film.

Over the next few months, the final cut of this video will be aired internationally,supporting the Canadian Tourism Commission in its mission to promote Canada to the world. Congratulations to all of our winners and everyone who contributed!
Simple, glorious visual storytelling at its best. Can you believe Disney let Glen Keane go? Glen designed and animated classic Disney characters like Ariel and Rapunzel. Since leaving Disney, he has worked on his own, most recently with this incredible new short titled Duet.
Sweden's The Local reports that Christoffer Castor of Skåne made a video with some friends because he needs to sell his orange Volvo in order to free up a parking space for his new car. The video ad they came up with had a ridiculous Swedish script, but then the world demanded it in English, so they made another one.
Volvo responded by sending him a 2015 Volvo V60 Sportback. What he came up with is fantastic.
This social video campaign by Poo-Pourri, a toilet scent freshening product is both shocking in its gleeful potty humor as well as brilliantly creative, not to mention laugh-out-loud hilarious. It looks like Poo-Pourri finally has the answer to the question plaguing millions of toilet users around the globe, "How do you make the world believe that your poop doesn't stink? Or in fact that you never poop at all?"
The crass dialogue being delivered by the pretty, refined lady with an English accent never stops being funny, and more importantly it also manages to deliver important information about the product's use and value. My favorite? When she remarks on how Poo-Pourri's ratings on Amazon are higher than that of the iPhone 5, a statement she ends with a joyful flourish by throwing an iPhone down the toilet.
The campaign is the brainchild of viral marketing whiz Jeffrey Harmon (known for the Orabrush campaign that got over 40 million YouTube hits) and director/writer Joel Ackerman. The actress, 21-year-old Scotswoman Bethany Woodruff, (a theater student at the very conservative Brigham Young University) is being lauded for her performance, with Suzy Batiz, the founder of Poo-Pourri saying she has the potential to be even bigger than the Old Spice Guy. I certainly believe it.
Although some might be offended by the crass lines, it clearly hasn't stopped people from watching the video. Since its release earlier this month, it has racked up nearly 9 million views on YouTube and it's gaining even more every day, on track to become one of the biggest viral hits of the year.
