Illinois Lottery's "More Coffee"
Longtime Conan O’Brien sidekick Andy Richter recently stepped behind the camera to direct a series of ads for the Illinois Lottery. Produced by STORY for Downtown Partners Chicago, the ads are sequels to an earlier group of spots that Richter both directed and starred in as Gil Mitchell, an eccentric and elegantly coifed newsman tasked with informing Illinoisans about huge lottery jackpots. In "More Coffee," Richter stocks up on caffeine as he prepares for a long night of announcing jackpots in the Illinois Lottery.
