Leo Burnett Satisfies Craving with ‘Hunter Gatherer’ for McDonald’s

Leo Burnett has unveiled the latest in their “Favorites” campaign for McDonald’s UK with a new spot entitled “Hunter Gatherer.”

“Hunter Gatherer” — which will appear in a 60-second version online (above) and a 40-second broadcast version — follows a man as he attempts to satisfy his pregnant partner’s food craving while their city is shutting down. He goes to several groceries and convenience stores, all of which are closed, just shutting down for the night, or don’t have what he’s looking for. Finally, the man spots a 24-hour McDonald’s. He returns, McDonald’s bag in hand, to his skeptical partner. When she opens the box, however, it’s filled with the pickles she’s craving. It’s a cute concept, and highlights McDonald’s’ “Hey, we never close” selling point in an imaginative way. (Although it does also raise the question: Can you really go to McDonald’s and order nothing but a box of pickles?) Stick around for credits after the jump. Read more

What Say You, GlobalHue?

It’s been a while since we’ve shed some light on GlobalHue, save for the random Jeep campaign, branding assignment or other drama, but the agency has announced that it’s bumped up SVP/ECD Vida Cornelious to chief creative officer, EVP/ECD Michael Jacobs to chief digital officer and EVP of client services Maria Lopez-Knowles to president of GH Latino.

In addition to the promotions, GlobalHue has welcomed MRM/TBWA\Chiat\Day alum Matt Lee as SVP of business development and Jorge Abascal as SVP, creative director. All the posts are based in NYC.
