Call center workers dispense advice on moving, storage and some of life’s most ticklish problems in a clever new campaign directed by STORY’s Jeff France for PODS and The Richards Group.

Each of four new spots features a telephone exchange between a PODS call center rep and a potential customer. In Don’t Like, a man describes a litany of things he dreads about an upcoming move, including “housework,” “feeling rushed,” “people pestering me,” and “talking.” The friendly PODS agent responds with advice on how the company can help him avoid these problems. She’s momentarily speechless, however, when he says the job for which he’s relocating is “marriage counselor.”
