How Google Made Martin Van Buren A Famous U.S. President
The commercial’s a scant 30 seconds long. A little girl springs the news on her mother at breakfast that it’s Dress Like A President Day at school and she’s supposed to come as Martin Van Buren. Martin Van Who?? After using her Google app, Mom gets to work.
I loved the commercial. I was struck by how it incorporates the key elements of effective sequential art: good writing, storyboarding (working out the frame-by-frame sequence), pacing, key facial expressions, editing out whatever’s not essential.
What do you think? Does laughter have a unique ability to disarm and persuade? Had you ever heard of Martin Van Buren? Are you ready to see big fluffy side-whiskers come back in style?? Hope you’ll leave a comment.
