GALLERY 15: Wrigley's - Seat Mates

Aldrich used an old bus to accentuate the unpleasantness of a long and uncomfortable journey in these latest Wrigley spots from DDB Chicago. The agency allowed the director free reign during casting and production and the result proves less cliched than most ads in this category. It's a strongly directed piece that follows the comic exploits of the odd characters one tends to encounter while travelling, all to say that Wrigley's still keeps its flavour regardless of the company.
