I'm koo-koo for Cocoa Puffs!
Finally I can let the cat out of the bag: I directed the most recent installment of Sonny the Cuckoo Bird and his ongoing quest to refrain from his beloved Cocoa Puffs. Titled, "Elevator," it features Sonny trying to keep from going koo-koo by riding in an elevator all day. I know, brilliant, right? Well, little does he know that anthropomorphic words are lurking by on each floor: Munchy, Crunchy and More Chocolately. As they crowd him in the confined space of the elevator, he completely looses it and finally grabs a bowl of the good stuff by the end. Whew!
I plan on talking more in-depth about the making of this spot, but things are a bit hairy here at work—I know, when are they not, right? Anyway, I am currently working on the third post for the Animania Big Wide Action Show Open (previous posts here and here), and once I finish with that, expect some behind the scenes on the Cocoa Puffs spot. Well, once I get everything cleared first (can't just start posting things without checking). Also, hopefully we'll have a nice quality Quicktime of it available to download soon. I'll let you know first thing.
So look for Sonny's latest freak-out on all your favorite cereal-promoting networks like Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney, etc.
