Dwarfs, Pigs, Dancing Indian Sell Awesome Canned Ham Phone

virgin_mobile_slice.jpg

If the general public ever thought those of us in the advertising business were just a bunch of wanna-be-cool hipsters who drink too much Starbucks, play too much foosball and have strange tastes in music, these two new commercials created by Mother NY and directed by The Perlorian Brothers would confirm that line of thinking. In this spot for the Virgin Mobile Slice, a phone packaged to look like a can of sliced ham, nothing is normal. Nothing at all. And, perhaps, that's a very good thing.

I've never seen an ad try this hard to be different.

I would say this was vintage Swede, and I'd be right.

Vintage.
