BLU’s Animated Graffiti Inspires New Ad for BBC 6 Music
I’ve realised that I’m becoming a self-qualified neo-rantist when it comes to TV ads, as such this week I wanted to have a good sniff at the new ad from BBC 6 Music which shows animated graffiti character made of big snout and ears crawling its way around London streets in search of music.
As The Guardian mentioned the ad was created by a creative agency called Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R, but interestingly, no one seemed to have dug deeper to find that an exactly same creative was originated by BLU, a sketch and graffiti artsit, who created my fav MUTO animated graffiti videos many many months ago. While the new BBC ad looks and sounds to be “cutting edge”, I’m not quite sure how BLU artist feel about having their works emulated by ad agencies.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
