Gearing up for its iconic “Shark Week,” Discovery Channel called on creative agency 2C to collaborate on an integrated promo starring comedy skit character Bob the Shark (“Shark After Dark”) and official “Shark Week” beer sponsor, Redd’s Apple Ale. The spot, conceptualized and written by 2C’s Ben Frank, uses humor and campiness to capture the immense pop culture appeal of the annual television event and allure of Redd’s Apple Ale.

With a glossy, commercial quality, the promo takes viewers into the classic tropical party scene, with revelers enjoying poolside festivities. That is, until Bob the Shark crashes the party and shakes things up with a surprise Redd’s Apple Ale tug-of-war. Delivering a custom, turn-key package from concept to post, 2C did everything from writing the script and casting the spot’s actors to finding the location, shooting on an Arri Alexa camera and editing it all together seamlessly.
