The Look of Music

Published on .

In their first American outing since Honda's awards-sweeping "Grrr," Smith & Foulkes show mini pixelated musicians in an integrated campaign for Yahoo Music Unlimited via agency Soho Square. Though cute and amusingly realistic in spite of a simplistic design, rockers Green Day and rapper Missy Elliott don't meet ideal fates in the spots, which broke this week. Lead singer Billy Joe Armstrong needs help when his head detaches during a round of headbanging, while Elliott finds her backup dancers hijacked by ninjas.
