Toronto ad agency john st., they of the wonderful "Catvertising" video and powerful War Children PSA, are back with their best stunt yet.

The attention to detail is impressive, the seniors, the kids, the double mouse, etc.

And this line: "Actually, Ian, you've got the CL-app on your unit, correct?"

"One day we won't need the viewer...."

Yeah, it's funny, and it's also very sad, because it's a direct hit on the Zeitgeist of the desperate digital ad world. So many ad agencies these days are astoundingly awful at self-promotion. john st. does it right.
