DoorDash - Laundry / Dash That Deliciousness (2022) :30 (Canada)

After showing them placing a DoorDash order, the spot continues with the customer dancing with a physical manifestation of one of the tasks as a Dasher makes his way to their home. The spots conclude with their delivery order being placed at the door and their task miraculously completed as they sit down to enjoy their food.

All of the effects for the video spots were created in-camera, with Hard Work Club and 1st Ave Machine enlisting a team led by acclaimed Cirque du Soleil costumer Lucien Berneche Atelier to create actual costumes representing the various stress monsters worn by the dancers.


More than 1,000 toys and kids’ items were sewn or tied in place to create the toy stress monster, for example, while each laundry monster featured about 75 items of clothing sourced from a thrift shop. Each costume took nearly 60 hours to create

I am loving the actor's enthusiasm and facial expressions and dancing! Love this ad...

I got rid of cable because I hated the commercials. Now I have an android TV box so I still see ads when I'm using apps or watching YouTube but they don't run creepy pharmaceutical ads for 5 minutes long so the ads don't bother me at all.

I haven't liked a commercial for years but this ad stands out as one of my favourite commercials from the past twenty years. It's a classic. Everything about it is perfect - the set design, lighting, music and the actor's dance routine and facial expressions are so uplifting. Every time I see this ad it makes me feel happy.
