Let’s Go Adventuring with Kiefer Sutherland, Jose Cuervo, Shall We?

Kiefer Sutherland’s voice is somehow simultaneously soothing and forceful. His gravelly intonation, coupled with his beautifully weathered face, is completely convincing regardless of the words involved. In this Jose Cuervo spot created by McCann Erickson New York, Sutherland’s ultimate message is, “Have a Story.” He pushes a shot across the bar to us and then we follow him for an impromptu concert, a spontaneous tattoo, a brief lover’s brawl, and some bonsai clipping.

It’s not the first time Sutherland’s channeled his 24 character, Jack Bauer, though Cuervo’s spot is a subtle representation. For Acer of course, he got jazzed about a new Dynamite Cupcakes business, obviously involving explosions and suspense.

This is the classic alcohol campaign (be more interesting, be epic, defy expectation, blah blah), but Sutherland pulls it off gracefully. And since ‘story’ has been a buzzword of late, McCann did well to incorporate in this effort for the tequila fave. Let’s take that shot.

Mother Takes on Dell’s New Pocket Rocket

Dell has created its Frankenstein version of a PC/iPad/Droid hybrid and named it the Streak “pocket tablet.”

So who ya gonna call to deal with this monster? Why, Mother of course. In this spot, the agency, which we can presume has had a better relationship with the computer brand, than say, Enfatico, has created a a nice story of a man and woman trying to find each other using the tablet while the people around them are also seen using the different functions of the device during their search.

Yes, I know, another darn cell phone. It’ll never end. This one looks a tad bulky, not iPad bulky – more like an “is that a pocket tablet or are you just happy to see me” bulky. View credits after the jump.
