Top Spot of the Week: Lance Acord Directs Qualcomm's "Bavarian Dance" for McCann NY
This intentionally inane tongue-in-cheek spot--in which a man and his young sidekick break into Bavarian dancing in a backyard--is part of Qualcomm’s “Ignore This” campaign from McCann NY.
The “Ignore This” premise is that a growing number of people don’t watch commercials during program breaks on TV. Instead, they’re likely on their smartphones to find something better to watch. But Qualcomm isn’t bothered a bit by this since it invented the technology that makes smartphones so indispensable. The company invented the “smart” behind the smartphone so no problem if you ignore its TV commercials.
Lance Acord of Park Pictures directed the “Bavarian Dance” spot which was edited by Matt Murphy of Exile.
