TOOL HITS GRAND SLAM WITH FOUR-SPOT SNY CAMPAIGN

Sports are big business in New York City, but Tool of North America Director Geordie Stephens channels the city’s passion through the small-time community memorabilia store in a hilarious four-spot campaign for SportsNet NY. The spots star a pair of hapless transplanted middle easterners – Sharif and Mandif – running the “NY NY Sports Sports” collectibles and apparel shop.

In Busting Balls, the pair rants to bemused police officers that a villain is infiltrating their store each afternoon to “bust our balls.” The police give chase when the perpetrator appears in a Mets jersey, deflating Yankee-themed balloons before fleeing from the store. Hoop Promotion features an ill-conceived contest, in which customers try to sink a basketball through a hoop in exchange for a prize. The balls smash into walls, knock merchandise from shelves, hit a bystander in the groin – going everywhere except in the basket.
