Stephen Colbert Freedom Bump

Freedom Bump

Stephen Colbert fist bumps Freedom the Eagle. An outtake from Wonderful Pistachios Super Bowl commercial that was turned into a GIF by a fan and is now moving to the top of the charts on Imgur and Reddit. Take a moment to go on Imgur and VOTE IT UP!

Here is the original footage that we posted near the end of the Super Bowl. I don’t know what is more adorable. The eagle, or Stephen Colbert’s reaction.

Moontoast Social Ads – like this one I created for Kia Sorento – show up in the Facebook timeline or Twitter feeds. Is this the future of social advertisement? Supposedly function in iOS as well, but I have yet to see that work.

The spectacular 2014 Kia Sorento Super Bowl spot “Space Babies” has arrived, and with it yesterday, two high-impact full-width video units I created for the YouTube and MSN homepages.

Each takeover starts with an eye-grabbing :15 teaser spot that ends with the prompt “View our Big Game commercial”. It then resolves to an interactive banner with cute space babies popping on mouseover, and a YouTube embedded player featuring the entire :75 YouTube exclusive spot. Clicking through sends you to the custom Kia YouTube brand channel (below) where you can learn more about all of the Sorento’s great features, and download wallpaper for your mobile or desktop devices.
