Hotels.com Gets Animated Yet Again, Plays ‘Matchmaker’

Though Y&R Chicago took it back to “real-life” for a recent Hotels.com spot filmed during the Running of the Bulls (which a commenter that goes by Bob Winter assured us the agency’s creative team thought up before I suggested it last year), the brand is yet again employing whimsical animation for this above spot, “Matchmaking.”

In it, we find our large-headed protagonist walking through a mystical hotel where each room is themed, kind of like that hourly rate motel from Blue Valentine but decidedly less sleazy. Set to a big band track from late vocalist, actor and comedian Jimmy Durante (aka “Schnozzola”), the animation team from Cannes-winning prodco Nexus had their hands full creating a sprawling hotel that hides a different world behind each door.

So, readers, how do you like your Hotels.com spots? Do you like them cute and animated, or X-treme and death-defying?
