Brigg Bloomquist Directs Tongue-in-Cheek Promo For OtterBox, CP+B

This promo film for OtterBox cases, which protect smartphones and tablets, takes the form of a kitschy 1980s toy commercial spoof starring corporate mascot Ollie, an overprotective critter whose alter ego is reflected in a small but mighty action toy action figure named Action Ollie.

Reminiscent of ‘80’s icons like G.I. Joe and He-Man, the “Action Ollie!” holiday video is a cheesy special effects-laden, rockin’ hair metal-tastic homage to classic Saturday morning kids’ toy commercials. Even the lengthy legal disclaimer copy is a parody. All to remind viewers that OtterBox cases, like Action Ollie himself, are “unapologetically overprotective” and make a great holiday gift. That is if Action Ollie dolls actually existed. Which they don’t. But whatever. And a celebrity cameo was also squeezed in: football legend, Peyton Manning. Because, why not? After all, OtterBox and Action Ollie are your best means of protecting your smartphone, tablet or other valued handheld tech device.

Brigg Bloomquist of Bob Industries directed this “Action Ollie!” :90 which was conceived by a creative ensemble at CP+B, Boulder, Colo.
