Moving Out Mischief in adam&eveDDB's Hilarious Hertz Van Rental Spot

DDB EMEA, 2 years, 6 months ago

Smuggler's Guy Shelmerdine cleans out with this brilliantly cheeky new spot

Moving Out Mischief in adam&eveDDB's Hilarious Hertz Van Rental Spot

Hertz, the car-rental company, is promoting its range of vans with a new online spot from Adam & Eve/DDB & Smuggler.

The spot opens on a mother giving her son an emotional farewell as he leaves home, but soon her anguish turns to anger as she realises that he has stolen everything that wasn’t nailed down in the house. The work was written by Frances Leach, art directed by Christopher Bowsher and directed by Guy Shelmerdine through Smuggler.
