Droga5, PRETTYBIRD Director Eric Wareheim Shout From The Rooftop As IHOP Becomes IHOb
For 60 years, IHOP has been all about pancakes. But now, they’re out to prove how serious they are about burgers with a brand new lineup of seven Ultimate Steakburgers. These burgers are made with all-natural 100% USDA Choice Black Angus Beef. But their burgers aren’t the only thing they’re changing—to prove how burgerin’ serious they are, IHOP is officially changing their name to IHOb, becoming the International House of burgers.
To spread the news about their new burgers and their new name, IHOb is shouting it from the rooftops. Literally. Droga5’s latest campaign--including this :30--puts an overly-excited IHOb manager atop IHOP’s iconic and dangerous blue rooftop. And from this precarious position, he’s shouting about the new Ultimate Steakburgers in order to spread the word--or more accurately, the letter b.
However, our enthused IHOb manager finds his sign-changing antics a bit perilous as he loses his rooftop footing. Yet even with his misstep, it’s all good in this spot directed by production house PRETTYBIRD’s Eric Wareheim, who is one half of the comedy duo Tim & Eric.
