Sweetshop Director Mark Albiston, FCB Auckland Find Donkey Companionship At MITRE 10
Mark Albiston of Sweetshop directed this spot for Australian hardware store/DIY chain MITRE 10 from FCB Auckland.
The comedy and charm of the film springs from Roy and his pet donkey, Kong. The donkey goes to great lengths to escape his confines in order to find compatible companionship. Each time he’s flown the coop, Kong adds to the frustration and inconvenience for the busy Roy. The friction between Roy and Kong is both funny and endearing, followed by the inspired, and the very funny, Trojan Donkey solution from MITRE 10 at the finale.
