This New York Lottery spot takes us to medieval times as a small band of warriors learns that they will be going up against a well-armed force of 200,000 to 300,000 fighters.

One of the over-matched men flees immediately upon hearing the news. The leader of the remaining group then goes over their options. They can fight or they can instead take leave and play the New York Lottery’s Take 5 game where they have a 1 in 9 chance of winning.

Given the odds, they exit for Lotto time.

Tom Kuntz of MJZ directed “Medieval” for McCann New York. The spot starts out as a dramatic cinema style scene, a misdirect that gives way to comedy that allows our band of merry men to escape a dire situation.
