Pink Elephant Car Wash – “Parcheesi”

This spot was one of dozens we did for the magnificent Pink Elephant Car Wash of Anchorage, Alaska. The owners are brave, daring and loved to help make people laugh. “Let’s Keep It Clean” was the hook and you’ll hear the rest. (There are lots of Pink Elephant spots we can share. Just ask.) – “Ugly Baby”

The folks at Shutterfly didn’t want to produce this. Then they did want to. Then they didn’t want to air it. Then they did want to. Then the calls started coming in. Yes, some were outraged but most wanted to know more about Shutterfly.

Doctor’s Nightguard – “Friggin’ Sleighbells”

Another favorite client was the Doctor’s Nightguard who trusted us to create ads that got some attention. This holiday spot features Donner and Blitzen as a couple of guys, one of whom has a big anger problem. Donner is one uptight reindeer.

Duluth Trading Company – “Plumber’s Butt”

Another Duluth Trading spot? Yes. They get funnier the more of them you hear.

eBay – “Abbreviated”

You know a spot goes back aways when it references newspaper want ads. We produced and cast this for Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and their client, eBay. It won tons of awards, including the Grand Mercury.

Diet Pepsi – “Karen & Debbie”

Subversion in advertising is all too rare. The client was BBDO NY and Diet Pepsi and they had no problem poking fun at advertising. (Embarrassing moment – we recorded the women before we added the subversive announcer so it sounded like we were producing the world’s worst commercial. I looked up and noticed the studio door was open and the people in the lobby were looking at us like we were the worst hacks in the industry. I closed the door.)

Chevys – “Bored Tongue”

Feminist Forum

I was listening to NPR the other day, suffering through some spiritual feminists yak away, clearly masking their hatred of men with new-age jargon. I was so incensed I had to lampoon them.
