Parents Get Feisty in New Microsoft Advert from CP+B, Roman Coppola

In CP+B’s new Roman Coppola-directed spot for Microsoft, sweet children sing in asparagus suits while their parents frantically capture every moment using their iPhones and Androids. A brawl ensues, with parents fighting for the perfect panorama, jostling one another to avoid phone photobombing, and climbing into the ceiling pipes for the ideal aerial shot. Of course, the couple with a Nokia Lumia 1020 sits calmly in the back with their superior cameraphone, knowing they got a great photo of their daughter dressed as a carrot.

This spot is in line with Microsoft’s last video, “The Wedding,” where the same scene occurs, but at a church. Both ads end, “Don’t fight. Switch.” Considering photo sharing has become one of the most important parts of owning a phone, it’s not a bad idea. Ad-wise, this spot is a great portrait of modern day life. If only an unintelligible child vegetable chorus could always soundtrack petty adult hysteria.

CP+B Celebrates a Kraft ‘Diamond Jubilee’ with More Skimming Parents

Well, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it as they say. Crispin Porter + Bogusky’s latest effort for Kraft Mac & Cheese, which debuted during last night’s Oscars telecast, continues the agency’s concept of parents who can’t help but bogart some of the gooey dish from their kids. This time, as part of Kraft Mac & Cheese’s diamond anniversary (75 years in case you didn’t know), CP+B and its client introduce us to three generations of Mac & Cheese enthusiasts including the elder statesman (who looks awfully familiar) and has been skimming from his offspring’s plates for, yes, 75 years. And of course, Ted “Golden Voice” Williams is still providing VO. Credits after the jump.
