Whitehouse Post Takes Terry Crews, Muppets on Toyota Super Bowl Adventure

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5A3R4XqhOA

When actor Terry Crews pulls his Toyota Highlander to the side of the road to check on a broken-down bus, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star doesn’t know what he’s gotten himself into: a car-full of Muppets and a wild adventure cut by Whitehouse Post via Saatchi & Saatchi LA. Joyride, which aired during the Feb. 2 Super Bowl, follows Crews as he evolves from bewildered Muppets hostage to awe-struck adventurer, with appearances from singing vegetables, chickens and an underwhelmed Kermit the Frog.

Whitehouse Post Cuts Pizza Hut Campaign for Super Bowl

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-Vz8S75RYA

Whitehouse Post Editors Tim Warmanen and Carlos Lowenstein sliced together a YouTube-inspired Pizza Hut Super Bowl campaign with mcgarrybowen this year, serving the jaw-dropping stunts of eight formerly anonymous individuals and groups to the world’s largest TV audience. Whether it’s a man piloting a motorized cooler-scooter, a Wisconsin grandmother rocking the drums, or a waterskiing baby, these extraordinary feats provide inspiration for Pizza Hut’s one of a kind, new Hand Tossed pizza – a lighter, airier crust, all brushed with garlic buttery goodness.

GoldieBlox Wins Intuit Small Business Big Game

This Sunday, more than 100 million people saw the first-ever small business commercial on the big game courtesy of Intuit Small Business Big Game, sponsored by Intuit QuickBooks. After tens of thousands of entries and millions of votes, GoldieBlox – an innovative toy company inspiring girls to push the limits and think outside the box through storytelling and basic engineering concepts – is the grand-prize winner. Its reward: an all expenses-paid commercial for the company that aired during the third quarter of the championship.

The 30-second television spot for GoldieBlox was produced by RPA, an independent fully integrated advertising agency based in Santa Monica, Calif. The concept brings the GoldieBlox mission to life, showing that girls can disrupt the status quo and envision their toys in a new way. The ad will serve as a rallying cry that all girls are more than just princesses. Carbon VFX joined in on the effort to give the piece its final look, handling clean up, sky replacement, and other finishing touches.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAhkswKitQg

Heinz is pouring into homes across the globe in a Super Bowl :30 cut by Whitehouse Post Editor Matthew Wood via Cramer-Krasselt Chicago. Working with images shot by Director Chris Woods, Wood pieces together an upbeat anthem to the classic condiment. The spot portrays everyone – from a cop at a big-city diner, to a hippie family camping in the mountains, to a parking lot of tailgating revelers humming If You’re Happy and You Know It – as they top off their meals with Heinz.

Whitehouse Post Hosts Super Bowl Beats Dance Party with Ellen DeGeneres

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IavzeiYTw1o

A classic fairy tale gets a vital refresh in the fist-pumping Super Bowl spot for Beats Music – starring Ellen DeGeneres and cut by Whitehouse Post Editor Lisa Gunning via R/GA. Playing the part of a music-hungry Goldilocks, DeGeneres explores an empty home, cycling through various music players. Dad’s rock music is too fast, mom’s country is too slow, the teen’s club mix too… wild; but Beats Music helps her to select the perfect song, just as the three bears – and their woodsy pal the wolf – return home for an epic dance party.
