Fish upon a star.

by Andrew MacGregor


Experian: “Adequate Vets” - 30s

A sequel to last year's Experian Boost launch ad, this 30" effort features one of the best fake business names we've seen for a while: Adequate Vets. The protagonist's glum demeanour is understandable, so he distracts himself with the advertised app instead. Cue a nifty space launch that plays Jeff Bezos at his own game.

Whether the bloke and his pet fish return to Earth or succumb to a black hole is unclear, but lift-off (complete with obligatory high-g face) ties into the product well. Where would this sector be without colourful indicator gauges, eh? Meanwhile, we want Adequate Vets to release their Christmas ad as soon as possible.
