Weekend With Ernie

Published on .

Meet Ernie the Klepto, who's a ringer for Steve Buscemi. In a candy spot, it's more than OK to have Ernie steal a dimwit's Starburst, Great Dane, bike and the shirt off his back (literally), and it's just smart to use a simple editing technique to turn a joke into a crowd pleaser.

Client: Starburst Agency: TBWA/ Chiat/Day/N.Y. ECD: Gerry Graf GCD: Ian Reichenthal, Scott Vitrone CW: Ashley Davis AD: Craig Allen Director: Matt Aselton/Epoch Films Editor: Gavin Cutler/MacKenzie Cutler
