GSD&M Bows First Work for Walgreens

Three months after reportedly beating out McGarryBowen for Walgreens creative duties, Austin’s own GSD&M has unveiled its first campaign for the drug store chain, which carries the tagline “At the Corner of Happy & Healthy” (still a little iffy on this one).

In this effort aptly dubbed “1901,” we’re treated to a little rework of “Down on the Corner” and VO work from John Corbett (aka “Aidan” from Sex and the City or the dude from Northern Exposure, take your pick) while we take a quick, 30-second ride through Walgreens’ 111-year history. Still, GSD&M has managed to pack enough in for us to not only see how the chain’s design has evolved over the years, but remember that Walgreens was responsible for the drive-thru pharmacy and child-safety caps among other things. While the concept of “1901″ is not the most novel one, the little history lesson within makes it worth viewing, we suppose. Credits after the jump.
