Elliot

Agency: 
Published/Aired: 
January 2008
Description: 

Print advertisment created by Tonic, United Arab Emirates for BAFCO, within the category: Office Equipment.

This is Elliot. He still lives with his mother. This is his car. This is his best friend. His idea of fun. How he spends most of his evenings. And this is his job. The only thing that stops Elliot from putting a bullet through his middle-aged balding head is coming to work everyday where he can be more productive in his ergonomically designed office chair and feel like a real player.

This is a campaign for the Middle East. Having lived there I think it works. First of all I can recognize these stereotypes and it makes it funny for me. Certainly a storytelling campaign like this is very novel for this category. :)

OK, maybe by our distance we can't analize this campaign as it may be, but...
Telling "The only reason he doesn't kill himself is his ergonomically designed office chair" to sell your producct is... AAAAUCH!!!!!

Ivan, don't you think it is a little too pat, a little predictable?
I find it a little too straight-up and linear. Perhaps that's me.

The only reason he doesn't kill himself is his ergonomically designed office chair. But the creatives should definately put a bullet through their head.
