In this kickoff to Duracell Optimum batteries’ “Two Characters” campaign, we meet a man with a metal detector looking to find hidden treasure on a beach, and another guy with a power screwdriver trying to fortify a cabin door against a hard charging bear. The former wants extra life in his batteries for optimal beachcombing while the latter needs power in a hurry to ward off a grizzly fate.

Thankfully Duracell Optimum delivers both extra life and power, whatever the situation requires.

Tom Kuntz of MJZ directed this humorous package of spots, including “Beach x Bear,” for Wieden+Kennedy New York.
