Nice Shoes Creative Studio Captures The Deadly Art of Kung Fu
Dogs can’t fight off fleas and ticks by themselves. But in FRONTLINE Plus’ “Fight Like a Little Green Man,” the Nice Shoes Creative Studio partnered with Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness to imagine a scenario in which a dog could battle fleas as effectively as FRONTLINE Plus’ formula, personified by its trademark clan of little green men. The challenge to solve was how to get a dog to behave like a ninja. Rather than attempting to train an actual dog in martial arts, Creative director Harry Dorrington proposed a scenario in which live action footage and a photoreal 3D dog were brought together, imbuing the heroic canine with the skills needed to fight off pesky parasites. Dorrington has aided Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness in crafting the FRONTLINE Plus ninjas across multiple campaigns, so he was well positioned to impart the ways of the ninja. Watch the results here: https://vimeo.com/124876496
