Firehouse Helms Simple, Effective ‘Forest’ Spot for Interstate Batteries

Dallas-based agency Firehouse created this simple, yet clever and effective spot for Interstate Batteries.

The 30 second “Forest” depicts an overgrown forest swallowing up a long-abandoned ’52 Ford Mainline with weeds and vines. Although the car is overrun with vegetation, its battery is still going strong, evidenced by the song blasting from the radio. “No battery lasts longer,” the spot claims, ending with the tagline “Interstate Batteries Outrageously Dependable.” It’s a refreshing, no-frills approach devoid of such new-fangled devices as campaign hashtags or social media tie-ins. Hell, it doesn’t even need actors or voiceovers. “Forest” is simply concerned with delivering its message in as direct a way as possible, which it does adeptly over the course of its 30 seconds. Credits after the jump. Read more
