There's Round Headed Randomness in These Handball Championship Ads

Stoked shoots trio of comedic spots for Leo Burnett Doha

There's Round Headed Randomness in These Handball Championship Ads

Doha is hosting the World Handball Championship in January 2015, and the last in a series of productions for the event is the ticketing campaign. With the obvious objective to encourage people to go watch the games live in the stadiums, Leo Burnett Doha came up with a comic trilogy. 

The concept is based on ball fans, being literally ball heads. As it is handball time, Handball head has the upper hand over the others in “his” swiftness, edginess and speed.

The shoot took place in Dubai. The ball heads were a mixture of physical models and CGI, with Post production handled by Mikros Image in Paris. Click here to view 'Paramedics' & 'Birthday'
