McCann Avoids Disaster, But Still Focuses on Vivid Narrative for Latest Xperia Adventure

 

Well, there is no epic warfare or movie tie-ins (thankfully) with this latest Sony Xperia ad from McCann NY, which eschews the bombast in favor of some visual trickery. Why? Well, the agency and brand are now getting down to brass tacks and letting us know what the hell the Xperia tablet actually does. The live-action effort, which was directed this time around by Augustus Punch, shows that, yes, you can indulge your social media addiction, watch movies and engage in game play on this certain device (though doctors recommend, not all at one time). We can safely say it’s not as epic as Sony and McCann’s last tryout, but it is certainly more inviting. Credits for the campaign dubbed “Frames” along with its print assets after the jump.

Red Stripe Celebrates Small Victories

Your average beer commercial tends to be a bit oversaturated. Whether Budweiser Clydesdales are clomping through the snow or Coors Light mountains are changing colors, big beer brands love their drama and growly-voiced narrators. Red Stripe, however, sets themselves apart by appreciating the little things in life.

In its latest campaign from BBDO NY, the Jamaican beer brand celebrates finding five dollars in your pocket, successfully evading embarrassing office party moments, and using a big word in a business presentation. All the appreciation comes in the form of a reggae band, crooning lyrics like, “Ooh, look at you/using a big word in an office meeting, all correctly and stuff.”

Their end slogan is simply, “Hooray Beer!” Hard to argue with that. Just as much as everyone loves throwing out sweet vocab words and finding money, beer is a simple pleasure worth celebrating. Credits after the jump.
