Top Spot of the Week: BBDO, Director Daniel Wolfe Team On "Surprise" For AT&T
Beginning this summer and continuing over the next year, AT&T has entered into a media partnership with cinema media vendor NCM (National CineMedia). The partnership, which was secured by AT&T’s media agency Hearts & Science, enables AT&T to run :90 second films during the previews before all the biggest films, such as Jurassic World, Mamma Mia! and more.
This :90 titled "Surprise" is part of BBDO’s series of mash-ups which blend movie genres in completely unexpected ways--underscoring the range of entertainment AT&T can deliver. For example, in this cinema ad we see a romantic comedy turn into a horror film.
Daniel Wolfe directed via production houses Somesuch and Anonymous.
