Teens may sniff glue for kicks, but judging by the short spot from 22squared for furniture chain, Aaron’s, moms across the country will be releasing endorphins when they get a chance to sniff their newly leased furniture. Lonely housewife warning: Delivery men are not yours to sniff and/or keep.
Atlanta-based 22squared, which also counts clients including Buffalo Wild Wings and Baskin-Robbins, officially became the first AOR for Aaron’s this week (minus a formal review), and “The Smell of Ownership” is the third commercial they created for the furniture giant (the first two were created as part of a short-term project assignment). The title is a little misleading, though, since those leasing the furniture won’t actually own it, but some might call that effective advertising. We’ve seen better, we’ve seen worse, and we’ve seen Troy Aikman talking to Hulk Hogan in those Rent-A-Center ads.
Kudos to the actress for really committing to the sniffing and sacrificing chunks of brain cells. Credits after the jump.
