Walking on the Edge

YouTube Preview Image

As a wide receiver for the Toronto Argonauts, Mike Bradwell isn’t afraid of much – except heights. To support the Canadian Cancer Society’s new signature fundraiser, the Fearless Challenge, Bradwell decided to pledge $2,500 to face his fear of heights by doing the CN Tower EdgeWalk.

Bradwell has met his fundraising goal and now you can see him face his fear of heights, at 116 stories above the ground, as he walks outside and around the circumference of the CN Tower’s main pod. Watch the video above.

The Fearless Challenge was created by Toronto-based Lowe Roche.

Marcel is Back

Posted October 20, 2014

YouTube Preview Image
Marcel the Shell with Shoes on is back in a new film, promoting a new book.

Although I’m super happy to see his wee shell face, as it is with many sequels, this is not as great as the previous films. It does have its moments though – the shrimp, the grape and the “life’s a party use your body,” are all pretty engaging.

Marcel is the creation of Dean Fleischer-Camp and features the vocal talent of Jenny Slate. Watch the previous films here.

I love a visually-driven spot that’s set to a great soundtrack (that’s a Delphonics cover by Mischa ‘Book’ Chillak featuring Esthero). I also love Toronto and happy to see it showcased in all its glory.

To celebrate the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Ontario Tourism has launched this epic spot, “Invade”. It’s created by FCB Toronto, directed by Untitled Films‘ Phil Brown, edited by Marc Langley at Rooster Post, and features music and sound design by Grayson Matthews.

Never Grow Up

Posted September 26, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

This year marks the 30th birthday of Toys”R”Us Canada. As the company matures into adulthood, what better time for the brand to pledge a promise to its supporters to remain forever young.

Toronto-based creative agency Open created a film dedicated to the young at heart, be they young, old, or somewhere in between. The message is a playful reminder to never grow up and a shout-out to those who stay playful by doing the things they love. A corresponding Facebook app, called “Never Grow Up”, was created to allow users to take the Toys “R” Us oath online. After submitting their own oaths of what they will always do to stay young, a map then shows their location, along with others, to create a cross Canada portrait of the young at heart.
