Top Spot of the Week: GE's "Octopuses" From BBDO NY
Christopher Riggert of Biscuit Filmworks directed this spot from BBDO New York in which we see that rather than raining cats and dogs, it is raining octopuses.
The unexpected chaos of an octopus storm, though, doesn’t deter GE for being ready for whatever challenges the world can throw at it. GE’s innovative technology keeps the octopus onslaught in check, helping planes, trains, power grids and hospitals to properly adapt and continue functioning.
The :60, which runs online on GE’s social channels, shows that the company’s engineers, thinkers, inventors and tech resources can successfully deal with whatever the world rains down on us.
