Simon McQuoid of Imperial Woodpecker directed this spot for Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), part of a campaign from Publicis New York which takes a light-hearted approach to a serious challenge, as a “monster” I.T. problem literally gets blown away.

The “TAME I.T.” campaign brings the IT Monster to life as a disruptive character who personifies I.T. complexity and specific customer pain points with humor--demonstrating an empathy and deep understanding of IT customers’ challenges.

Andy Bird, CCO of Publicis NY, commented, “Tech problems are often massive, almost inexpressible and monstrous in scope. We took that simple idea and crafted it into a big smart, creative visual. The red monster simply conveys the scale of the issue and just how quickly HPE provides a solution.”
