HP/Qualcomm’s new campaign via agency Doremus marks a return to comedy for kaboom’s Doug Werby, a director known for eliciting subtle and compelling performance in any genre. The spots are deeply relatable narratives about a truly modern day dilemma; the pitfalls and ridiculous lengths we go to in the pursuit of secure, high quality Wi-Fi.  Werby says the key elements driving the spots are the magic of misdirection, with casting and performance creating contrast in every spot. Juxtaposition of characters, location and tone, set up the audience’s expectation about the unfolding stories, which quickly turn to reveal a moment of comedic truth.
