BBDO/NY, Wondros Tap Celebrity Chefs for (RED)

BBDO New York teamed up with production company Wondros for a new campaign supporting AIDS charity (RED).

The 30-second spot, directed by Christian Weber, features food celebrities such as Chef Mario Batali, Chef Wylie Dufresne, Food and Wine Magazine editor-in-chief Dana Cowin, Martha Stewart and Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi demonstrating how much food you can buy for 40 cents. Then Batali returns holding two pills, and informs viewers that 40 cents per day buys HIV sufferers the pills they need to survive. The spot ends by directing viewers to visit www.red.org to find a list of restaurants bars and food trucks participating in the 10-day EAT  (RED) DRINK (RED) SAVE LIVES event.

“Christian and I were on board the second BBDO & RED called. Having a chance to help bring awareness, and ultimately funding to support those living with HIV, is an honor,” said Wondros’ executive producer, Gina Zapata.

BBDO Releases New Olympics Visa Spot, ‘Night Swim’

BBDO has just released a new Olympics spot for Visa featuring U.S. Olympic Freeskier Torin Yater-Wallace.

The 45 second spot, “Nightswim,” follows Torin on one of his night runs through “an ocean of snow,” where “it’s only [him] and the mountain.” Torin explains that he skis at night because the days just aren’t long enough, and he can engage his passion in private at night, without the pressures and distractions he faces during the day. The spot closes with Morgan Freeman‘s narration that Visa has been “supporting Olympic athletes for over 25 years.”

Like a lot of the Olympic advertising we’ve been seeing, “Nightswim” is pretty straightforward, allowing the athlete involved and the idea of Olympic sponsorship to speak for itself. The most unusual thing about the spot would have to be the nighttime setting, which allows for some interesting visuals, but also some moments where it’s kind of hard to tell what’s going on. Credits after the jump.
