This is why there is an air conditioner ad in your AgencySpy this morning.

This spot for BGH comes from Del Campo Saatchi & Saatchi Argentina. The concept evolves around a creepy voyeuristic shut-in being the personification of an air conditioner. As things end up taking a pretty bad turn around the 45-second mark, it’s hard not to reflect on two things: 1. This spot would never run in the U.S. and 2. Your own demented broadcast concepts will never be made unless you leave the country.
