In one spot, called "Mission Impossible?", a UPS driver enters the office of "Mimes Inc." and, to his surprise, the office is bare. The UPS driver assesses the situation and begins to "mime" his way through the office, over to the imaginary desk where he delivers the package to his delighted customer.
"While appealing to viewers' desire to be entertained, we demonstrate UPS' capabilities and resourcefulness in a playful and metaphoric way," says Bill Durnan, president and CEO of Ammirati Puris Lintas, the Toronto agency that created the campaign.
