W+K NY Utilizes Voice of Donald Sutherland in ‘No Bag Left Behind’ for Delta

W+K New York enlisted the voice acting services of Donald Sutherland in their latest effort for Delta Airline’s “Keep Climbing” campaign.

Cleverly titled “No Bag Left Behind,” the spot derives from the insight that Delta flies more people than any other airline. Positioning this insight in an emotional context, the 60-second broadcast spot breaks from the more rational, documentary-style tone “Keep Climbing” has taken in the past, also employing the use of color for the first time in the campaign.

Directed by Noam Murro, the ad follows the bear-shaped bag of a small girl as it is cared for by Delta employees ensuring its safe delivery. Sutherland’s voice provides the perfect calm cadence to narrate the spot, concluding with the line, “…but when you’ve got an entire company who knows that the fewest cancellations and the most on-time flights are nothing if we can’t get your things there too, it’s no wonder more people choose Delta than any other airline,” delivered as the very relieved girl picks up her bag. The spot, which launched yesterday, will run until the end of November. Read more

Cisco Vows to ‘Wake Up the World’ In New Global Rebranding Campaign

It seems the “Human Network” is no more in a new campaign for Cisco from GS&P. In fact, Cisco is moving on to a new tagline, “Tomorrow Starts Here,” which is in line with 2012′s consumers who find technology and the promise of sentient robots beings much more valuable than humanity. In other words, Skynet is now your sole provider of network solutions, and Cisco is their new sub-brand.

The above TV spot, which is part of an integrated campaign titled “The Internet of Everything” (see what I mean?), travels around the world in its effort to mix pictures of frightened looking people with visual representations of sweet, flawless data. The soft narration along with the quick-changing cuts have an air of IBM marketing to them, minus IBM’s trademark blue bars. In fact, “Tomorrow Starts Here” and IBM’s “Smarter Planet” have a bit of the same tone, at least in contrast to their old taglines (“Human Network” and “Power to the People” respectively).

Cisco’s new campaign, as you might imagine, also features a Twitter hashtag campaign using #IoE, which some may confuse with Internet Explorer (a product of Microsoft, another subsidiary of Skynet). Either way, as long as we’re all on “Team Internet,” we should be totally cool with our new robot overloads brutally murder everyone else. And, as long as we’re on the topic, good thing that social media will soon be entirely comprised solely of robots talking back and forth to each other. In the meantime, enjoy an augmented reality print ad for Cisco and few credits after the jump.
