Slip sliding away.

by Jason Stone

goPuff: “Waterslide” - 30s

This surreal offering from director Andreas Nilsson uses deadpan performances to underline the value of the advertised food and drink delivery service. (Given the way in which events unfold and this particular brand name, you might also expect them to provide recreational drugs… not something, to the best of our knowledge, that they actually do).

The main protagonist enlivens his humdrum life by exploiting the unexpected appearance of a cloud inside his office to create a horizontal slide which, with the help of a little washing-up liquid, provides him with some childish fun. It's all very silly but, we suspect, quite effective as it implants goPuff into your head like the hook of an earwormy song.
