Walton Isaacson Debuts First Ever TV Spot for Knob Creek

Chicago-based marketing and advertising agency Walton Isaacson have debuted the first ever television campaign for premium (and, we think, rather tasty) bourbon whiskey brand Knob Creek.

Walter Isaacson worked with  bi-coastal digital production and creative design studio Brand New School on the campaign, entitled “Bookerisms” for the sayings of Knob Creek founder Booker Noe, which are featured in the campaign. The debut 30-second spot, “Booker Said,” centers around one such Booker quote, which is actually pretty funny:  ”If you’re not completely satisfied with the big, full flavor of our bourbon, just send back the unused portion and we’ll drink it for you.” Read more

Old Navy Conjures Some 90s Nostalgia with Cast of ‘Blossom’

It seems as though the hiring manager at Old Navy’s “Funnovations Inc.” is quite the fanatic of early 90s sitcoms. After all, Blossom star and current Big Bang Theory cast member Mayim Bialik revives her giant floral hat for a stint spent deploying “Bee Bots” on spring dresses. It’s always amazing how quickly these Old Navy spots from CP+B and prodco Brand New School turn into surreal portrayals of a dystopian society controlled by excessively cheerful celebrities who run clothing factories.

So maybe using Bootsy Collins to sell boots last winter was a bit of a stretch, but if there’s one media personality we can immortalize for bringing colorful clothing to the masses 20-some years ago, it was blossom and her outrageously bright clothing. Also, it’s kind of nice (and a little depressing) that Joey Lawrence can still make some money on the side by not wearing a shirt and saying, “Whoa.”

On that note, who’s ready for the second season of Melissa and Joey on ABC Family? Credits after the jump.
