Peer1 Preps Clients for that Big Pile of Clicks
Big tech geek fantasy: when clicks fall from the sky and deluge him with traffic, burying his torso and filling his mouth, each depressed pointer button a little piece of validation.
Like MacTeague's wife and her pile of gold coins. (Or, if you weren't an English major, like Scrooge McDuck and his swimming-pool vault.)
That's the imagery Vancouver-based hosting firm Peer1 channels in "Slacker," a video ad where a lazy techie fails to equip his company website for a click-through deluge. Enter said "deluge." The piece concludes, "Peer1: Fully scalable hosting solutions."
Problem, solution. Simple.
Put together by indie agency Rethink. Semi-interesting backstory: Rethink planned on building thousands of Styrofoam arrows to shoot this ad. But then visual effects studio Lux came along and was all, "Bitch, in the 21st century we just CGI that shit on in post-production."* Gangsta-gangsta. And everyone lived happily ever after.
*Okay, they didn't say it exactly that way.
