Charming Spot out of AMV BBDO Tells a Tale of Brotherly Love
Aug 20, 2013
Charlie -- the child viral star whose bite was seen 'round the world when he chomped on his brother's finger-- seems to get a nod in this sweet tale of sibling love by AMV BBDO for Heinz Baked Beans. Based on the premise that beans on toast provides you with the energy you need to grow, the spot, charmingly directed by Blink's Benito Montorio, features a big brother-little brother relationship that isn't quite perfect. Sure, they're able to play hide-and-seek and kick a soccer ball at a garden shed, but the big bro believes he'd have a lot more fun if lil Charlie would develop the skills of a more seasoned kid--which is where the beans come into the picture.The scenario also promised to create some warm stirrings of nostalgia among the adults among us who long for a simpler time.
