Top Spot of the Week: TD Ameritrade's "Joe"
Feature filmmaker Brad Silberling (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events; City of Angels) directed this spot which tell us the story of Joe, who stands pretty much in the same place working in a restaurant kitchen yet much around him changes--realized by the actions of people and deployment of props, set elements and his donning of different attire as he continues to go about his business. Through all this, we see Joe's career progress. Agency is Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.
