Martin Short's Short Day At Work


The new campaign from Wealthsimple, the online money management platform for everyone, features actor/comedian Martin Short touting the leading Canadian fintech company to an audience of young, modern investors. Created in partnership with agency Preacher, the cheeky campaign features the actor playing a lazy and entitled version of himself giving minimal effort on the set of a Wealthsimple commercial. The work aims to remind people that their money should be working harder than they do--and certainly harder than Short does.
