Fluid Editor John “JP” Piccolo recently teamed up with Station Films Director Sam Cadman via agency Erwin Penland to tackle the business of customer service for a commercial campaign to promote Advance America.
The campaign captures the unscripted reactions of customers approaching a deliberately disrespectful hot dog vendor. JP crafts Cadman’s expansive footage into several :30s presenting a closer look at the confusion of each customer.
Two Spocks face off. Leonard Nimoy is understated as always with a dark streak. Zachary Quinto is Zachary Quinto. The spot's a touch long but it has a funny ending, if you discount the unnecessary button at the end.
More luck for your buck with a Fortune 55 scratcher. Hm. I might have to try this guy out...55 chances? Sign me up.
Puma Fragrances teams up with a bunch of freestylers including PacMan, Storyboard and King Charles, to bring you the Dance Dictionary.
I thought you'd be able to write your own sentence and see if they could translate it-- they should do that as a live activation so it's more participatory beyond just clicking and watching.
The words and sentences have already been chosen and some of them extremely obvious. For instance, the word "heart" is translated by a dancer by making a beating heart shape with their hands.
It's about as fulfilling as watching someone else play Pictionary. But I'm sure the teen crowd will love it.
This month is a foster Care Awareness Month. To create awareness and provide more information, the Coalition for Children, Youth and Families have created a campaign to let you know there is something you can do to help a child. It's all a drive to go to Foster Parents Rock.
The spot itself depicts the life of a child literally being in a storm without a safe place to go to.
Find more info and check out all three spots here.
Sound design was integral to the flow of Lumberman, in which repetitious noise defines a lost girl’s growing angst until a stud tramps out of the woods, lighting her camp fire with a flick of a match across his stomach.
Check out all three spots here.
In this spot, Wild(child) created a percussive rhythm around the ball as a frumpy nerd slugs it back and forth with an unknown target, who is finally revealed to be a muscle-bound opponent deflecting the ball with nothing but his abs.
Just in time for Cinco De mayo, Pop Secret popcorn bring us the Popcorñata.
They ended up having to sew the bags together to make it work. Neat trick.
Too bad there's not like a salsa flavored pop corn to strengthen the concept. mmm, salsa flavored pop corn. Don't know what that is but I like it. Pop Secret Labs-- get working on it!
The thirty second version of Wells Fargo's new campaign in which it aligns itself with historical events because talking.
Wells fargo borrows interest (geddit?) for this spot about talking. Because apparently when I go into Wells Fargo and they hand me a bottle of water and make me swipe my pin card followed by a receipt for my deposit, or when they sign someone to a loan with okay interest, it's just like when the Wright Brothers flew or when we landed on Mars, or when Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus. o_0
They lose big points for the old "dumb guy" cliché. As well as the old "food is so tempting I see nothing else." Seriously. that's so old it's got hieroglyphics all over it.
However "I want to dip you in tartar sauce and eat you with a side of hush puppies," is a nice bit of perversion. So there's that.
Dealing with student debt can be a horror. Thankfully, non-profit SALT is here to help. With a nifty little microsite, a ten thousand dollar give away (hope she didn't go to portfolio school as ten g's is a pittance) and some good advice for this girl.
Security Service Federal Credit Union is there for you. Because they believe in great service.
