Carmichael Lynch Introduces ‘The Barkleys’ for Subaru

For the latest installment in Carmichael Lynch’s “Subaru Dog Tested. Dog Approved.” campaign, they’re introducing “The Barkleys,” which refers to a family of dogs, not Charles Barkley and family.

The new spots — “In the Dog House,” “Teenagers,” “Road Trip Convenience Store” and”What’s the Fuss About?” (featured above)– imagine the family of dogs in “everyday relatable human experiences.” These range from teenagers making out after a date, the man of the car getting in trouble for oggling an attractive female, that convenience store pit stop that every road trip depends on, and barking as the mailman drives by, which, come to think of it, isn’t really an “everyday relatable human experience.” The spots are simple, relying fun dog humor without any dialog. Dog owners, and especially Subaru-loving dog owners, should eat this right up.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have “They Lived,” a somber spot for Subaru’s “Love” campaign. Based on stories from real Subaru owners who survived crashes, thanks to their Subarus, the spot features an actual Subaru wreck which the driver walked away from. The officer on the scene and the driver who towed the wreck tell those seeing the wreck, “They lived.” It’s an effective way to illustrate Subaru’s crash safety as a selling point, and a reminder of how important that can be. Watch it below, and stick around for one more Barkleys spot, along with credits, after the jump. Read more

American Standard, Carmichael Lynch Want to Celebrate the Great Indoors

American Standard and Carmichael Lynch celebrate the indoors with their latest campaign. The TV spot “Movie Marathons,” directed by Albert Kodagolian, opens with a young woman dressing up as a vintage scream queen, seemingly in preparation for a night out. But it’s soon revealed that she’s “attending” a sci-fi movie marathon with her boyfriend and cat. The spot tries perhaps a little too hard to be cool, but one thing it definitely does well is cash in on people’s love of cats dressed up as stuff. I won’t give it away, but it’s particularly adorable.  Read more
