Dave Laden Directs "Park" For Grandma’s Cookies, Goodby Silverstein & Partners
“Are you my Grandma?”
That’s the prevailing query in this new ad campaign for Grandma’s Cookies from Goodby Silverstein & Partners. The warm, cozy feeling of being with your grandmother is triggered when a person is munching on Grandma’s Cookies.
In each spot of the campaign--directed by Dave Laden of Hungry Man--someone is eating a Grandma’s Cookie. The cookie smells so delicious, looks so homemade and sparks nostalgic feelings so that onlookers become convinced that this person must be their grandma. Like, their actual grandma. And absolutely nothing will convince them otherwise.
In “Park,” a girl walks up to a burly guy sitting on a park bench and eating a Grandma’s Cookie. She is convinced the he is her grandma and even asks “him” to knit her a sweater. Amusingly enough, he acquiesces.
