Q1 – End of Quarter

  • – Shows off marketing with a bunch of girls dancing in a party atmosphere. Everyone wants to be in marketing. Seems like a new year, same old commercial. 2/10
  • Coca-Cola. Video game feel, guy gets a Coca-Cola from a mini market. Looks like he will car jack, but gives a coke away. Turns into a super dude gives money, a homeless person a coat, puts out a fire, catches a purse snatcher. Give a little love and it all comes back to you. 8/10
