GSD&M Unveils Avocados From Mexico's Super Bowl Spot
In this Super Bowl :60 titled “Bounty of Earth” for Avocados From Mexico--directed by David Shane of O Positive for agency GSD&M--we are thrust into an interplanetary museum where an alien tour guide leads a bunch of other aliens through an exhibit about Earth. The tour highlights the most unique Earthly possessions that would amaze beings far and wide. These possessions, found by the aliens themselves (and often misinterpreted), include a number of pop-culture treasure troves like the always in-season avocado.
The star treasure on exhibit from Earth is the kidnapped Scott Baio who is anxious to get home, which is where Avocados from Mexico’s #AvosInSpace social campaign comes in. At AvosInSpace.com, viewers can tweet to win prizes and upload their own exhibit to free Scott.
