Directed by Jim Jenkins of O Positive, commercials in a new campaign for HP from Wieden+Kennedy, Portland, Ore., center around an old-school business magnate who lectures us on how to get ahead. But soon, his long list of cliches and jargon-laced maxims fall apart as the modern workers of the world show us what success looks like today with the help of HP Hybrid tools.

This anthem spot is titled “Work Happy,” which is also the name of the overall HP campaign.
