Wrigley's Solstice 5: Fire and Ice

Produced by Eight VFX and directed by Jean-Marc Demmer and Fred Hopp, the new, all-CG "Solstice 5" for Wrigley's conveys the "warm and cool winter" flavor with a playful show of extremes. The collaboration between Eight VFX and BBDO Toronto turns the science of flavor-making into an event that is both is explosive...and chilling.

As the commercial opens, we find ourselves in an enormous - presumably secret - location (the brand's shadowy '5' logo stenciled on the rear wall offers only a hint of context). Camera moves in on a glass sphere in which the Solstice 5 package is housed. The package bursts into a huge fireball; not only does it withstand the heat, it gradually turns cold. The temperature drops rapidly, causing the package to become encased in ice. Finally, the glass shatters, falling away to reveal the striking Solstice 5 box intact.

Good effects, but nothing beyond that.

agreed. gum ads are always false promises. Nice special effects though

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?
