  • First Steps

    In our inaugural campaign for Credit Karma, our launch spot, “First Steps,” focuses on the ups and the downs that a young couple experiences in order to reach their financial goals. Narrated by Justin Theroux, the spot follows their progress from their initial struggles, to their minor setbacks, and their ultimate triumph as they work together to fix their finances with the help of Credit Karma. The integrated campaign will roll out through 2018 to include additional TV spots, social media videos, and radio. Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman, Ghost in the Shell) directed the television spots.

The Remarkable Journey of the All-New BMW X5

  • The Remarkable Journey of the All-New BMW X5

    How do you transport the all-new BMW X5 from the factory in South Carolina to the stage of the LA auto show? You drive.

    While every other car maker transports their brand-new models to auto shows in carriers, we took a different route and drove the all-new BMW X5 for nearly 3,000 miles across 11 states, taking as few detours as possible. The 10-day journey started at the BMW’s factory in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and headed west directly to the LA Auto Show. When we finally got there, BMW’s CEO, Bernhard Kuhnt, drove the dirty vehicle onto the stage—a move that surprised an audience used to seeing only the shiniest cars.

    During the trip we challenged the X5 with all sorts of obstacles and real events, including an unexpected way to cross the Mississippi River, a real-life demolition derby in Tennessee, cornfields, ranches, public events and a high school football game in Texas. To ensure the authenticity of the journey, we captured every scene in real locations found along the way, including all the people and animals shown. No actors were ever cast. The result is the ultimate portrait of the X5’s capabilities and a beautiful picture of America’s heartland.

    No two Cheetos® snacks are alike.  They're made in a way that results in each one being completely unique. And every so often, they look like something familiar. Like a seahorse. Or a cat. Or Abe Lincoln.

    So we turned our cheesy snack into a piece of art.

    We created the Cheetos Museum, featuring real Cheetos found by real people that look like real things. It was the world's first collection of the most interesting Cheetos shapes in existence. Then we challenged Americans to curate the exhibit by submitting the most amazing Cheetos shapes they could find, sparking a nationwide hunt for the uncanny works of art in every bag.

    The two brands will face off in an epic rap battle starring Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman, who will perform iconic rap verses from Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott. Dinklage will #SPITFIRE for Doritos; Freeman will go #ICECOLD for Dew. 

    After the spot airs on Super Bowl Sunday, a Snapchat lens will go live that lets users pick a side and rap the same lyrics as Dinklage and Freeman. Through Snapchat, Busta and Missy will continue to ask the nation to pick a side using the hashtags #SPITFIRE and #ICECOLD.
