The new campaign is anything but conventional: It features people trying––unsuccessfully––to play popular games like charades and chess with their butts. Who did they choose to make the idea come to life? Brian Belefant.
Belefant has a theater of the mind style of story-telling encompassing wit with dark comedy. So of course, he is drawn to this type of unconventional subject matter. Belefant is best known for ‘Burning Passion’ a multiple award-winning film he directed about a guy who ejaculates fire, which will be be rereleased on the Day of Love in 2009.
The campaign commercials gained a collective of over 6.8 million hits on Youtube. The style of the spots is meant to look amateur and create the impression that the camera just happened to be in exactly the right place at the exactly right moment. The spots had an impact of a successful viral campaign.
5 spots were shot for this campaign here are sample of 3.
