Trophy heads

One of our readers, Alfred, just pointed out this Superbowl ad.



Making us happy to see that there are other people out there thinking about what's on the other side of a trophy head. Watch Jai the horseman, as we shot it on placement at W+K London. We really should have made it much shorter, right?

It's a fairly obvious gag, i think.

This is old and couldn't find it on YouTube:

Anyway, how is having the same idea as everybody a good thing? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

it was BBDO NY who did the monster ad.

If you're subconsciously suggesting they ripped you off, then...

Wal said...

no, that's not what we're suggesting.

it seems that that is what you're suugesting by posting the ads together.

I like your horseboy one better actually, as it's more surreal. Theres no reason why they wouldn't have just lopped the moose's head off in the other ad, although the "real" ad is constructed much better and tells a clearer story. You should re-cut your horse boy one down to 20 - 30 seconds to show your storytelling has improved sometime.

...was thinking it was about time you guys took down your christmas header, although given the current climate it seems quite fitting...ha ha.

Have to say I prefer your version much more guys. Maybe could have made more of it that it is a 'job' but a nice take on it nonetheless.

I don't think you should bother blogging unless it's something interesting or you could always pack it in all together.

Blog seems, somewhat pointless and dull now, i'm not trying to be ultra negative, just the way it looks to me.
