This “Crush it” anthem video for popcorn brand Angie’s Boomchickapop features real women who inspire others. They include a formerly homeless woman who is now a singer/songwriter, a mom of 2-year-old triplets whose husband is serving overseas, and a double amputee who became the first to complete a full marathon. 

Sasha Levinson of Humble directed this short as well as spots that showcase 100 percent female power from St. Paul, Minnesota-based ad agency boatBurner.

Levinson said, “So many different types of women came into casting but they all shared a common theme--that in order to crush it they had to first crush negative self talk.”

Doug Mickschl, creative director at boatBurner, said, “Since the very beginning, [Boomchickapop] founders Angie and Dan Bastian have crushed it. Their story was the north star of this campaign--real, nothing fake.” He noted that the campaign “features real stories of real women who crush it, and was captured by an all-female crew led by Humble and director Sasha Levinson.”
