“The Talk” Commercials and Campaign

LAI Video is excited about this one. We partnered with CropLife America on The Talk, a brand new campaign that hopes to start a dialogue about pesticide use.  The core of this initiative is four 30-seconds commercials that are FUNNY. Using both slapstick / silly humor and a bit of sexual innuendo, we wrote a variety of sketches to grab the attentions of consumers and policy-makers. For two of the spots, we devised The Pest, a character so vile that interrupts everyday scenarios. We all know that guy.  After Justin wrote the scripts, Sarah cast the roles that would define a campaign. After securing our pest, farmers and background artists, we scouted locations. We purchased props. And longtime cosplayer Tiffany designed The Pest costume.  Favata directed the intense summer shoots with Cinematographer Jun, who also cut together the playful spots. Motionographer Anthony corrected the color.  As The Pest mascot grew in stature, he was immortalized on The Talk logo. He was even made into a bobble-head! But we are most proud to have built the microsite that is chock-full of graphics, GIFs, memes and information that will debunk the many myths surrounding the crop protection industry. Go to giveacrop.org to experience The Talk. Laugh. Share. And remember these tactics for your next industry-wide campaign.  LAI Video is excited about this one.
