Park Pictures impressed with work from talent both established and new this year. Lance Acord made animals and birds "sing" the well-known music from "2001: A Space Odyssey” in an environmentally-themed Golden Globes spot for Jeep via Highdive. In the ad for its hybrid plug-in Wrangler 4xe, a hippo, monkey, peacock and wolves seem to open their mouths to accompany the melody or provide the instrumentals to the soundtrack.

Jake Schreier provided some silly but memorable comic relief for Oikos. The ad, set in a karaoke bar, starred a woman struggling to sing Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” until it’s suggested she “sing about yogurt,” and she breaks into soaring vocals.
