Roman Coppola of The Directors Bureau directed a series of :30s in this campaign, including "Intro" in which we see the famous Gecko lizard spokesman wrap a TV commercial and then take us behind the scenes of the production. While he talks as if he's real, Gecko notes that his coffee and coffee cup are CG. The overall "Behind the Scenes" campaign was conceived by The Martin Agency.
