Director Neil Tardio Promotes "Sale" With Fun Wordplay For B of A, Hill Holliday
Taking a page from the classic Abbott and Costello “Who’s on First?” comedy skit, Hill Holliday Boston had some fun with three Red Sox players’ names to cause their own brand of confusion. In the center of all this is star pitcher Chris Sale who decides to treat a bunch of kids to ice cream. When youngsters come up to an ice cream truck, they ask how much the frozen treats cost. “It’s on Sale” is the response from the three pitchers manning the truck, which leads to a constant back and forth over exactly what the “Sale” price is.
Directed by Neil Tardio of Venice, Calif.-based Durable Goods, this spot for Bank of America--titled “It’s On Sale”--also features Red Sox pitchers David Price and Steven Wright, whose last names add to the wordplay games.
The :60 is a continuation of Bank of America’s #MLBmemorybank campaign that aims to honor fan memories while helping create new ones.
