Y&R New York has unveiled for client Xerox a contemporary take on a beloved 1976 Super Bowl commercial, “Brother Dominic.” In that iconic ad, Brother Dominic turned to a Xerox copier to duplicate his meticulously hand written manuscript. Fast forward to the new commercial, and Xerox technology enables Brother Dominic to translate his manuscript into assorted languages, personalize and share it both physically and digitally across all devices--worldwide.

James Rouse of The Corner Shop directed the new Brother Dominic commercial. Inspiring the piece was the work of Allen Kay, creative director at Needham who created the original Brother Dominic commercial.
