Good Apart. Better Together.

Client:
Tostitos
  • Good Apart. Better Together.

    Just in time for Super Bowl, Tostitos has launched its newest flavor combination: Tostitos Strips and Avocado Salsa. Like so many things in life, they’re good apart ­– but even better together. So, who better to announce this incredible new pairing than one of pop-culture’s most unexpected (and amazing) duos: Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart.

    In the spot, the two stars fight for screen time to promote their respective products – whipping back and forth between Snoop’s dark and moody music video set and Martha’s sun-kissed outdoor entertaining area. That is, until Snoop is lured into trying the ‘green stuff’ that Martha’s so expertly prepared.

Cool Ranch

Doritos
  • Cool Ranch

    The ranch just got cooler. In more ways than one. This year, Doritos has made their iconic Cool Ranch flavor even cooler with more ranch flavoring. To announce the news, Doritos decided to take fans back to the Old West... with one new addition: Lil Nas X.

    The :60 features an epic western showdown between legendary cowboy Sam Elliott and Grammy-winning artist Lil Nas X – of course set to the track "Old Town Road" – the longest running No. 1 hit ever on the Billboard chart.

    The spot, directed by Lance Acord, shows the two stars facing off in an epic hip-hop / western dance battle that features plenty of hip pistols, but no guns. And for all the fans that want to dance just like their western heroes, Doritos has partnered with Sway, an AI-powered app that lets you dance just like Sam and Lil Nas and share with the world. #CoolRanchDance

Zero Sugar. Done Right.

Client:
Pepsi
  • Zero Sugar. Done Right

    In 2020, Pepsi launched the new Pepsi Zero Sugar, which comes in a sleek matte-black can. To promote it Pepsi embraced its musical DNA and teamed up with iconic rapper Missy Elliott, breakthrough artist H.E.R. and legendary producer Timbaland to create a bold new version of the classic Rolling Stones hit “Paint It Black.” In a bold challenger move, the Super Bowl campaign starts with H.E.R. choosing to switch her red soda for the matte-black Pepsi Zero Sugar as she sings the first line of the song: “I see a red door, and I want it painted black.” From there H.E.R. and Missy get together to dance and perform the new version of the song, joined by a squad of dancers, in a cool matte-black music video choreographed by all-star choreographer Sean Bankhead and directed by award-winning director Noam Murro.
