Blowhole Bob

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / TV & Cinema Advertising / TV Commercials 21-40 seconds / 2008

Our strategy was to magnify inherent interest in this new combination of strong mints and dark chocolate. As we worked on the assignment, with tins of the soon-to-be released mints on our desks, we noticed that people couldn’t help but stop and ask to try the new product. They were curious... Or was it Bob’s cute butt that caught their attention?
