A teen freaks out about the possibility of a breakout of monster zits in a combined live-action and animated Clearsil spot created by D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles, New York. The commercial, running on cable TV, shows a kid on his first day of school fantasizing about how horrible his life will be if he gets a pimple. He will, for example, become a couch potato like his parents, as illustrated in one animated segment. The live-action director was Bruce Van Dusen at MacGuffin Films; animation credits to Klasky Csupo in Hollywood.
