Fast Forward - Going up

Agency Network: 
March 2016


How do you keep people from hating a pre-roll ad they’re forced to watch to the end? Simple. You fast-forward through it. We created four :15 pre-roll ads that do just that. Each ad begins in a mundane situation then fast-forwards ahead to something much more unexpected. At the end, you can click to watch the unabridged version of the ad and see what you missed. The goal is to take the most annoying 15 seconds in advertising and turn it into something so disruptive and entertaining, you’d actually choose to watch more.

Digital advertisement created by The Martin Agency, United States for Geico, within the category: Electronics, Technology.

I disagree here. This is worse than then the other short ad idea concept they tried.

5 stars to me, good way of thinking, but the long videos are boring

Was never once inclined to watch the rest of the ads. The abridged versions are dull enough.
