Cutting Room Put the Fear of Football Gods Into Passive Fans for Fox Sports


Last Updated: September 23, 2015 8:15 pm GMT
(New York, NY--September 23, 2015) Cutting Room, NY editor Chuck Willis intensifies the gravity of missing even a snippet of college football game time in the humorous new :30 “Pool” for Fox Sports, out of Pereira & O’Dell, New York.

The spot features a man taking in a leisurely day of cocktails and sun with friends at a hotel pool. When he insists that the Saturday football games are over for the day, he is abruptly transported to a pigskin-revamped Mt. Olympus where a trio of football gods scolds him for his lack of resourcefulness and returns him to his original location with an extreme sunburn as punishment.

The spot is a continuation of the “Honor Thy Saturday” campaign, which was rolled out with the :30 “Piñata" in early September.
