Kingsford: Slo Mo Long

DDB and Kingsford want to remind you that when you slow down and savor life’s moments, you notice the real beauty in them. To add a conceptual audio element, Rob Crow of Pinback slows down and re-interprets the Human League song “(Keep feeling) Fascination” to create an ethereal accompaniment to the slow-motion action.

Sorry, I edited out your swearing. It's not allowed, because it's disrespectful towards our colleagues. Sorry again.

I like it. I like the nostalgia. I like the smiles and fun and the food. No, it's not a revolutionary commercial, but it speaks to a benefit of the product. I'm not crazy about the tag line "slow down and grill" but odds are consumers will consider a BBQ with friends and family while watching. Which, crazy as it sounds, may lead to the actual sale of the actual product being advertised. WHOA.

Yep. It's cool... but at this speed people would starve and get pissed off.

McD's would be the solution.

Say my name, say my name...

I liked the ad until it said "Slow down and grill". Is that really the best way to express it?

Reminds me a little of the Cadbury's Schwepps "burst" commercial. The idea is pretty much the same. About slowing down, about movement, enjoying the little moments etc.

So on originality is does not resonate but its sweet and nice, very summery, very BBQ culture. Little more innovation would have been nice.
