Nextel gives the normally dowdy push-to-talk walkie-talkie phones an emotional appeal with three spots out of Madre
Buenos Aires, directed by the highly acclaimed Juan Cabral, the former Fallon
London creative who moved into directing a couple years ago, and has previously wowed us with work for Sony
, Cadbury, and the Grand Prix-winning campaign for Tate.
Every communication technology fulfills a purpose. With text-messaging, it's about short information heavy signals that don't necessarily warrant a reply. Phones are for dialogue. But what about the walkie-talkie? As these spots show, they're for more than young kids playing at battle.
