Office Depot's "Schulson and Sons"

Office Depot's new ad features Susan Schulson, the owner of Schulson and Sons Movers. Unfortunately for Susan, her sons are going off to university and she'll no longer have the muscle power needed to carry all that heavy furniture. However, after saving tons of money on school supplies by shopping at Office Depot, Susan is able to correct this situation.

I don't want to give away too much, but I will say that the pause after the line "new sons" that then leads to the next line is brilliant.

  4. Hi - this is actually someone else's Youtube upload, so I fiddled around with the coding, but don't seem to be able to correct the aspect ratio (or remove that stupid 30 seconds after the actual ad), but I'll keep searching for a better version and post if I find it!

    Thank you all for the comments.

  6. So in your search for a mover you went to a blog where it clearly says there on the right that shes giving her thoughts on current advertising, looked at a post called “Office Depot’s Schulson and Sons,” skipped over where she mentions Office Depot 2 more times, and shes the blonde?

    Heres a guide to using google for you: http://www.googleguide.com/
