Tom & Graham

Right off the bat, this ad starts with cool, well-animated animals. The general speed of reaction time and delivery time to the messages and shared media shows how fast this utility works and it’s just a perfect example of a well-oiled machine running its course. This ad objective proves its point that it does one simple task really well which is connecting to create something new.



The commercial and the animals were GREAT – both from a fun, creative standpoint but also because of the ad’s slick execution. It told a story that both young and old could enjoy. The story was fun, the drawings were on target and everything about the TV spot was first class.

Meet the Authors

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.
