Top Spot of the Week: Biscuit Director Steve Rogers, BBDO NY Take A "Shot" For AT&T
A young man sinks the winning shot in a basketball game to the delight of the home crowd.
But in the post-game locker room, the story takes a turn as the hardwood hero, now alone, is confronted by two men in suits. A fight ensues in which the lad throws one of the men literally through a wall. The other guy retaliates, slamming the basketball player against a wall of gym lockers. It’s then revealed that our game-winning jump shooter is a robotic creature. Now disabled, he is dragged out of the locker room by the authorities.
A super simply reads, “From sports drama to sci-fi,” underscoring the wide range of entertainment fare available through AT&T.
Titled “Shot,” this cinema ad continues AT&T’s “More for your thing” campaign from BBDO New York. This past summer, AT&T debuted a series of cinema spots which blended movie genres in completely unexpected ways--romance and horror in “Surprise” and suspense and a musical in “Bus.” The campaign has AT&T in partnership with NCM (National Cinema Media).
Steve Rogers of Biscuit Filmworks directed “Shot.”
