Anonymous and Publicis & Hal Riney Make Anything Possible for Adcouncil

John Dolan of Anonymous Content via Publicis & Hal Riney directs this whimsical, yet inspiring, spot for and Ad Council. The spot opens with a nervous young boy introducing himself and his new invention the suction tired BMX bike. We are then treated to a “show and tell” of sorts as the boy shares his inspiration – octopuses, and the process of creating his masterpiece. Several shots of the young inventor riding illustrate the wild capabilities of this impossible feat. After seeing the boy “Spiderman” his way along the walls and ceilings of a school, he is last seen hanging from the handlebars suctioned to a building. We are left wondering if these tires actually exist? Of course they do, in the minds of kids who think and dream big. “Anything is possible. Keep thinking.”
