Rock Paper Scissors’ Biff Butler Gets Tough with Carhartt

Rock Paper Scissors editor Biff Butler recently teamed with Anomaly and to deliver an aggressive, thoroughly red-blooded spot for Carhartt. The result is “Force,” a :30 that pairs the famously indestructable workwear brand with rough-and-tumble scenes of American labor. The new work finds Butler teaming with Director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines) for a second time, having previously collaborated on a taut and quietly suspensful spot for Dick’s Sporting Goods.
