The Best Work You May Never See: Canal+'s "Dads" From BETC Paris
A classic storyline misdirect is employed to great effect in this spot for Canal+ out of agency BETC Paris.
Directed by Martin Werner of production house HENRY, this promo piece starts out as a tug-at-the-heartstrings story showing devoted fathers present at important moments of their children’s lives, cell phone cameras at the ready to chronicle every achievement.
Just these fathers’ presence alone gives a quiet, strong support to their kids--until it’s revealed that dear old dad is doing something else altogether, taking advantage of Canal+’s to-go service to watch live sports on their mobile devices. Suddenly we realize that Canal+ delivers the best games for the worst fathers.
