Top Spot of the Week: Biscuit's Aaron Stoller Directs "Waladoo" For NFL, Goodby Silverstein & Partners
NFL’s Thursday Night Football is a great excuse to get together with friends and start the weekend of football early. Unless, of course, you’re Elliott, a conservationist incurably devoted to preserving the lineage of the rare and majestic cockeyed waladoo. While Elliott watches the waladoo from a perch above a frozen forest, his colleagues are cozied up at the local pub watching all the Thursday Night Football action.
This spot titled “Waladoo” and the fictitious bird named waladoo were made up by the creative ensemble at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco. Aaron Stoller of Biscuit directed “Waladoo.”
