Tierney Shares ‘Human Truths’ for TD Bank

Philadelphia-based agency Tierney just launched the follow-up to their “Bank Human” campaign for TD Bank,  with “Human Truths.”

“Human Truths” follows much the same vein as “Bank Human,” with four new, 30-second spots each pointing out a flaw with the inhumanity of most banks, and then positioning TD as the alternative. If you caught any of the “Bank Human” spots you know what to expect: someone enters a bland, generic looking bank with a problem and instead of helping to solve it the bank just gives the customer a logistical headache. It’s a straightforward, no-frills approach that speaks directly to TD Bank’s image as a customer-centric bank. The new spots tackle issues such as hold music, getting a new debit card (“Almost Magic,” featured above), running late, and maintenance fees.

“TD Bank’s focus is to create a very human and convenient banking experience,” explained Vinoo Vijay, chief marketing officer, TD Bank. “These new commercial spots speak to the pain points consumers too often face with their banks. They also highlight how TD’s approach to banking is different. This includes our unparalleled service and convenience, as well as our customer-first culture.”

The “Human Truths” campaign kicked off yesterday and will run through mid-August, with a strong presence on the four major networks in all scheduled markets. In addition to broadcast, the campaign will contain additional elements across digital, social media and PR. Stick around for “Maintenance Guy” and credits after the jump. Read more

Kraft Mac & Cheese Theft Warrants a Child’s Revenge

Well, at least Crispin Porter + Bogusky is keeping it real by keeping the VO work of once again-rehabbing Ted Williams intact in this latest round of spots for Kraft Mac & Cheese. This time, the concept is “Noodle Theft” and we here we have “Officer Dan” (though we would’ve preferred this Officer Dan) lecturing some young redhead about stealing. Apparently, a little bogarting of the prepackaged, gooey goodness turns young’uns into the children of the corn. You’ve been warned. Check out the second spot and credits after the jump.
