goodness Mfg. Mocks ‘Sillycon Valley’ for Toshiba

goodness Mfg. takes on Silicon Valley in a new spot for Toshiba, presenting their Encore 2 as “the one device that quiets the hype.”

In the animated, 30-second “Sillycon Valley,” goodness Mfg. presents a cartoonish tech world gone overboard, complete with coffee drones, 5D printing and “smart scissors.” While disparaging tech to sell a tablet may be a questionable strategy, and “Sillycon Valley” may go a bit too far into the ridiculous at times to seem like an effective satire of Silicon Valley tech hype, the tagline at least wraps things up nicely. Still, it’s hard to imagine “Sillycon Valley” persuading anyone to go buy the Encore 2.

The agency takes a different approach with “Unleash Yourself,” this time showing the Satellite Click laptop’s versatility at a wide range of tasks while highlighting its portability due to its detachable keyboard. It’s a more effective approach than “Sillycon Valley,” selling the product for what it can do, rather than what it doesn’t claim to be. Stick around for “Unleash Yourself,” along with 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.
