GROCERY, SOFT DRINKS AND HOUSEHOLD 04: Sprite - Hotel

Clever animation slices sharply into live action to spice up a grim hotel setting for this comic ad for Sprite. A man returns to his hotel room hot and dusty from a trying day at work. When room service arrives, he lifts the silver serving dome, but a gremlin-like animated creature pops out and breaks into song. Interestingly, the concept came from the dictionary definition of Spirte: 'an elf or fairy like creature with greenish skin. Normally found underground in forest or mountain areas.'
