    The course of true love never did run smooth.

    It certainly doesn’t in this spot from Xfinity.

    The 60-second TV commercial harks back to classic John Hughes movies and features the challenges of a wannabe Romeo sneaking into the bedroom window of his Juliet. But in a modern twist, our young teen is defeated by a vigilant father and his Xfinity xFi app that’s notified him when a new device has joined. 

    So a word of warning to future suitors- maybe leave your mobile phone in the car next time.

Lessons in HerStory

Client:
Daughters of the Evolution
  • Lessons in HerStory

    Timed with Women’s History Month, Daughters of the Evolution and GS&P introduced Lessons in Herstory, an app that uses augmented reality to celebrate stories of women typically omitted from history textbooks. When users open the app and scan an image of a male historical figure in A History of US, Book 5: Liberty for All? 1820­–1860, the app unlocks a story of an important female historical figure from that same period. For example, when a user scans President Zachary Taylor, they will see an illustration and story of Cathay Williams, the first African American woman to enlist in the army (using a disguise and a pseudonym) during the Civil War, when women were prohibited from entering the military. The app currently features stories of 75 women from the 19th century and is available on the App Store.

    The Slowskys

    In 2006 the world met Bill and Karolyn Slowsky—two turtles obsessed with DSL Internet because of its slow, slow speeds.

    The Slowskys made it clear then that they wanted nothing to do with Comcast’s high-speed Internet or anything remotely fast. When their son, Bill Junior, was born, they even taught him that “fast” was a four-letter word.

    Well, now in 2019, everyone’s favorite spokes-turtle family is back, and this time they’re calling out Xfinity’s revamped customer experience. It’s fast. It’s easy. You can troubleshoot issues yourself. So you know Bill and Karolyn don’t like it. But their grown-up Millennial son, Bill Junior, couldn’t be a bigger fan. In fact, he’s an Xfinity customer.  

    In the new Xfinity Slowskys campaign, which launched on National Turtle Day, we witness Bill Junior embracing the fast lane, technology and life in the digital age. He constantly tries to convince his parents to switch to Xfinity to help make their lives easier. Spoiler alert: it won’t go well.

Dalí Lives

The Dalí Museum
  • 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.
