Ben's Original: “Original” - 55s

Families all over the world bring their own flair to the table in this polished commercial for Ben's Original rice. Households of all colours, creeds, and compositions use the brand's microwavable rice as the basis for a meal during the 55" montage, proving that the kitchen is truly at the heart of every home.

Director Bob Harlow skilfully handles what could be a busy sequence here, balancing communal cooking with moments of personable humour. Whether it's a kid placing their toy dinosaur on the table or flatmates photographing their food for the 'gram, viewers of all stripes will recognise their dinnertime experience reflected onscreen.
