Fred Savage Shows What UniBall Isn’t

My, how far young Kevin Arnold has come since The Wonder Years. After proving himself a worthy television director on the short-lived but very funny Starz series Party Down and prime time sitcom Modern Family, former child actor Fred Savage (via Uber Content) is making his first foray into commercial work for UniBall. When was the last time you laughed out loud at an ad for pens?

Developed with Chicago-based agency TRI3ECT, UniBall’s new “Instant Upgrade” campaign includes UniBall’s debut onto social media, allowing young business professionals to upgrade their own office experiences with photo frames and job title upgrades. But, call us celebrity groupies, we’re more into the trio of ads from Savage that showcase competing types of pens as the most annoying co-workers possible. Two more spots after the jump.
