Stun Creative, an award winning advertising agency and production company based in Los Angeles, has produced and directed an uncomfortable and very â€œLarry David-esque,â€? marketing campaign for the premiere of â€œCurb Your Enthusiasmâ€? on TV Guide Network.
The multimedia effort includes a TV spot and viral web promo where Larry David finds himself in yet another awkward situation, this time during an apparent junket type interview about â€œCurbâ€? coming to TV Guide Network. Designed to blur the line between the real Larry and TV Larry, the campaign leaves viewers wondering if what they just saw was scripted or truly captured by cameras in between takes.

Similar to how a scene from â€œCurb Your Enthusiasmâ€? is shot, Stun developed the concept and script outline which gave Larry David and Rob Huebel, the interviewer, room to improvise and take the comedy to another level. After three takes there was more than enough material to produce the campaign. Larry David also worked with TV Guide and Stun in the edit bay to make the final cuts.
Todd McNulty, VP, Marketing, for TV Guide Network, said, â€œFrom the moment we heard Larry was available, we knew this was going to be unlike any other promo shoot. We wanted the best comedy agency in the business. Stun delivered throughout the entire process.â€?
Said Mark Feldstein and Brad Roth, principals, Stun Creative, â€œYou couldnâ€™t find two bigger Larry David or Curb fans. Getting a chance to team up with him was such an incredible experienceâ€? says Feldstein. Roth adds, â€œOur goal when developing the campaign was to create a Curb-like situation or moment that captures the anxiety of the show.â€?
Roth and Feldstein also recently worked with Seinfeld alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus shooting spots for her series â€œThe Old Adventures of New Christineâ€? as it launches into off-network syndication. â€œKeeping with the recent â€˜Seinfeldâ€™-related clients theme, weâ€™re hoping to work with â€˜The Soup Naziâ€™ next,â€? Roth/Feldstein remarked.
