"Chicken Pox" Reveals A Worse Epidemic
The camera opens on a young boy's face. The hand—all we can see of a second person—is putting makeup over the lad's chicken pox marks to conceal them. "Am I gonna get in trouble?" asks the boy. "No, you're not gonna get in trouble," a girl's voice responds. "Are you sure?" persists the boy. The...

"Beach"
We open on a dog being taken for a walk in the park by his master. The canine sniffs at a discarded plastic water bottle nestled in the grass. We hear a voice. But whose? The dog's? No, it's the bottle's. "Well, that was pretty uneventful," gripes the empty water container: "Sat around in a...

"World War I Soccer"
This spec spot puts us in the trenches—literal trenches—of World War I. We open in black-and-white, on a desolate battlefield. The camera pulls back to reveal that we're looking through a periscope—the POV of a soldier dutifully keeping watch from the deep trench. Beside him huddle his comrades,...

Hey, What's The Worst That Can Happen?
Soda, soda, soda, soda," murmurs a young man as he ambles down a grocery store aisle, peering through the glass doors of one enormous refrigerator unit after another.

"Horror Film"
Four bottles of beer—and then there were three. This spoof of slasher horror movies leaves a broken-bottle casualty, but manages to humorously promote Miller Lite's sponsorship of the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin. The campy, black-and-white :30 taps into the movie-watcher...
