PES Breaks Through with Wongdoody, Dodgers

Published on .

A family of bobbleheads go out to the ballpark.
In a new campaign for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Wongdoody/L.A. turns the camera on a family of bobbleheads as they go out to the park to support the team. The effort is the first significant commercial job for New York-based filmmaker PES, aka Adam Pesapane, who has garnered lots of acclaim in recent years for his innovative spec spots and shorts. In 2002, his stop-action film "Roof Sex" made the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase in Cannes, while last year's "Wild Horses Redux" -- an unauthorized Nike homage featuring electric football players stampeding across a landscape of fur and meat -- quickly became an online sensation.

In the eight-spot Dodgers campaign -- directed by PES via production company CZAR.US -- we follow the shaky-headed clan as they hustle for autographs, tackle enormous hotdogs and try to stay in their seats as fans rock the stands for star pitcher Eric Gagne.
