The Brief:

Mac Carter of Anonymous Content gets to the point for Maytag in this enlightening :30 via Publicis New York aptly titled, Monster Truck.

"Maytag's are built tough. And, frankly our Maytag Repairman is bored out of his mind with nothing to fix," said Rob Feakins, President/Chief Creative Officer of Publicis New York. "So, he has turned his attention to putting them to some outlandish tests. Will you ever need to drive a monster truck over your Maytag washer while doing a load of whites? Uh, no. But it's nice to know the Performance Series can withstand anything you throw in it or on top of it."
