Energy BBDO and Orbit chew their way into RAW

2+

Soooo you happen to be going to the bank and there’s a robbery. Obviously, they’re going to tell you to lie down on the floor — it is one of the tropes of any good robbery after all.

So now what do you do while you wait and possibly pee your pants?

You reach confidently into your (dry) pants and pull out a pack of Wrigley’s Orbit Gum.

At least that’s what happens in Robbery a hilarious new spot from Energy BBDO.

 

Directed by MJZ’s Craig Gillespie and edited by Matthew Wood at White House Chicago, this whimsical 15-second ditty is part of a new campaign that offers a fresh take on confidence and a nod to the brand’s iconic, lighthearted wit.

According to Energy BBDO ECD, Pedro Perez, the campaign breathes life into the idea that with the confidence you get from having a clean and fresh mouth, you can shine, no matter what the situation.

“We love that the product is the unexpected twist in the story. Just when you think you know how it’s going to end, it turns into this charming story about confidence.”

Josh Gross, also Energy BBDO’s Executive Creative Director added, “We’re excited to be bringing humor back to Orbit. It has evolved, but it harkens back to this tonality the brand has always been famous for.”

Humor, robbery, confident guys and cute girls. It’s all what makes this fun little Orbit spot RAW!
