We go about our daily lives without much thought to the history behind inventions large and small, from the ice cream scoop to modern-day democracy. The HISTORY Channel and creative agency/production company Valiant Pictures turn the seemingly every day on its head in a fun campaign where unsuspecting citizens meet the historical counterparts who made their lives what it is today. 

In these repeatable vignettes, historical figures appear in modern settings as a comedic device to reveal History’s most intriguing true stories, hidden in plain sight. The campaign aims to target a younger audience--situating each spot in places the viewer may see themselves--with an approachable, modern and entertaining brand perception.

In this particular ad--directed by Vincent Lin and Danny Corey of Valiant Pictures--we meet a man at a backyard birthday party. It turns out he is Alfred L. Cralle, inventor of the ice cream scoop. We hear a bit of his story and end with the realization that “the rest is history.”
