Tom & Graham


I loved how this commercial was shot. It was humorous and I liked how they tied everything together. It was very original and at the same time, very simple. I wouldn’t say I loved it or that this commercial is the best I have ever seen, but I wouldn’t mind seeing it again. This statement is based on the fact that I love how well it was shot and how this Oreo commercial was different from all others.


“An Ode to the Forgotten Finger” was a brilliant commercial in which each finger told a story, except the forgotten pinkie. Each finger’s story was artistically done and gave an accurate portrayal of what they’re called upon to do. The Oreo cookie and the pinkie don’t show up until the last scene when a very graceful hand delicately dunks the new slim Oreo. Because of the artistry in the commercial, I believe the viewer would watch until the very end.

The 18 year old

A rising student of film, Graham measures all advertising against his favorite movie scenes. So a commercial with a good car chase plays well. Better with an explosion. And funny. It should be funny. So a speeding car that explodes in an amusing way will sell product.

The 80 year old

Graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Business School, Tom doesn’t let his Ivy League education interfere with an appreciation for inane advertising campaigns. He more than appreciates a poodle in a business suit selling cleaning products. He also enjoys talking babies.
