The centerpiece of the McCann New York campaign promoting the New York Lottery’s new scratch-off game called BACON! is this spot titled “Early Riser.” Directed by Conor Byrne from m ss ng p eces, it tells the story of a New Yorker who is magically awoken and carried through the air, out of his home, and through the streets by a mouthwatering aroma. Spoiler alert, it’s Bacon! 

The commercial was shot all in-camera both in studio and on location in New York, using a specialized rig to ensure the hero character was always being led by his nose towards the source of that sweet bacon smell.
