  • Dalí Lives

    In January 1989, Salvador Dalí made his last public statement. He said, “When you are a genius, you do not have the right to die. Because we are necessary for the progress of humanity.”

    So on the 30th anniversary of the master’s death, we brought him back to life using an artificial-intelligence technique popularly known as “deepfake” to give visitors of the Dalí Museum a point of view they never had: the art according to the artist. 

    Fans of the iconic painter can now hear about the masterpieces from the mouth of the master himself and get to know his personality. 

    To create Dalí’s likeness, we created a neural network that analyzed over 6,000 frames of archival footage. The process required over 1,000 hours of machine learning.

    To re-create his personality, we used his own quotes, extracted from old interviews, books and personal letters, all curated by the Dalí Museum.

    Through interactive screens installed inside the museum, people can get face to face with the artist. The screens show over 125 videos with 190,512 possible combinations, so every visitor can have a different experience. 

    On the way out, there’s one last surprise: in a surreal move, Dalí pulls a smartphone out of his pocket and takes a selfie with the visitors.

    The ultimate proof that the master is alive in 2019.

    To demonstrate how certified pre-owned BMW vehicles run like new, we introduced a campaign for BMW featuring only used creative -- TV spots, radio ads, billboards and digital banners that were originally used to advertise the vehicles when new. The idea is to use the same ads made for new BMWs years ago, now refurbished to sell the same model as certified pre-owned.

    In creating the campaign, we went through years of BMW commercials from other agencies in the US and globally, going back to 2013—since five years is the oldest BMW Certified vehicle people can buy. The only thing that’s new is the branding of their pre-owned program, which has been renamed as BMW Certified, with the tagline “Like New Again.” Each spot also gets a new voiceover by Chris Pine, who comments on the age of the spot or even how great his younger self sounds.

    It’s probably the first time in history an advertising agency has fought to use the work made by the previous agency, resulting in an audacious campaign that’s literally years in the making.

    Living with AT&T is like living with a bad roommate. They’re slow, they never help out, and you end up working circles around them. You’re not sure when or how they got in your house. It feels as if you’ve known them your whole life. What you do know is that it’s high time they left. So we told people to stop living with AT&T already. Switch to Xfinity instead.

    Meet LiMu Emu and Doug, Liberty Mutual’s new dynamic duo with one mission: to help people customize their insurance so they only pay for what they need. 

    LiMu isn’t the most well-trained spokes-animal on the block. He’s actually nothing more than a wild bird in a perfectly starched yellow uniform and sunglasses. But what he lacks in actual skills he more than makes up for with a catchy, rhyming name. Doug, on the other hand, is a highly trained customizable-insurance expert who serves as LiMu’s wrangler and partner in crime. Together, they’re unstoppable when it comes to saving people from one-size-fits-all insurance.

    The new campaign, which harks back to classic buddy-cop series like Starsky and Hutch, launches with three spots showing the characters springing into action.
