From Chicago-based multicutural agency Commonground comes the first spot in a new television campaign titled “Who’s the Coldest?” for Coors Light. The first spot, “Bodyguard,” reunites rapper-turned-family friendly Hollywood mogul Ice Cube with his cast-mate from Friday, Tommy “Tiny” Lister. Aside from playing the neighborhood bully “Deebo” in the Friday trilogy, you might also recognize “Tiny” from his role as the noble, unnamed prisoner who doesn’t blow up a boat in The Dark Knight.
According who the anonymous source who sent the clip our way, “It’s viewed by many that this campaign and these spots are better than the Coors Light work DraftFCB is putting out there.” What say you, dear commenters? Here’s some fairly recent work for the brand from DraftFCB for comparison:
- Mystery Box and The Harmon Brothers Get Violent, Messy for VidAngel
- W+K NY Taps Fred Armisen in Latest for Heineken
- Venables Bell and Reebok Serve Up a Side of Bacon for the 2014 CrossFit Games
- Tribal Worldwide Shows 'How to Dad' for Peanut Butter Cheerios
