We Have Gas

High quality octane of course. We’re not talking about floating an air biscuit. Besides, if I meant that kind of gas I would have named this blog Butt Whispers.

When Flash Foods came to us about a commercial for their mobile app, my first question was, “Can we do something funny?” I didn’t expect them to say yes since most people want something inspirational and dramatic. Let’s face it, everyone has a different opinion about what’s funny, but almost everyone can agree that something is emotionally moving. To my surprise, though, the marketing director of Flash Foods very cautiously says, “Yeah, we’re okay with funny… what do you have in mind?” If you know me or saw the commercial we did for Aramark, this sentence was equivalent to saying “Beetlejuice!” three times. I did try to explain the gravity of what she had just done, but it was really too late. The ideas were already forming…

After a painful filtering process of my mind and hearing Jesse say many times, “No, you can’t say that…” I had two solid scripts written. I was pleased with them, even without a single word of bathroom humor! So we nailed down a solid cast that I couldn’t have been more pleased with and made both commercials happen in one day. It was a long day, but it was awesome. Grateful that I get to be around such amazing people and do what I absolutely love. So here they are! Let us know which one is your favorite!

    • Thanks Melody! Yeah that’s what we started to like about it during production. It led to us throwing in those “Office” shots like the zoom on Charles expression and Jesse’s wink. Haha, those last minute ideas end up being my favorite.

    • Hey, thanks man! We had the privilege of renting a RED Epic, so that definitely played a part in the quality. We’re jealous about it too, haha. Too bad we can’t shoot on one for every project!
