Venables Bell & Partners, Director Mark Albiston Slide Into Home For Sheraton
This latest spot in Sheraton’s “Go Beyond” campaign out of agency Venables Bell & Partners ties into the hotel chain’s partnership with Major League Baseball.
We see a Sheraton associate running hard around the bases at a baseball stadium with a glove under her arm while a colleague waves her toward home plate. As the tension builds and she slides into home, the scene transitions quickly to the lobby of a Sheraton, revealing that she was running through the hotel the whole time. She reaches an elevator just in time to hand the glove she was carrying to a young Cub’s fan on his way to the ballpark who had misplaced it. The commercial serves as the latest example that no matter how big or small, Sheraton folks “Go Beyond: so that their guests can too.
Mark Albiston of The Sweet Shop directed this piece which was cut by Martin Leroy of Whitehouse Post.
