The main intro video is once again accompanied by ‘Hit or Miss’ by Odetta from the beach TV ad.

The copywriter for the campaign was Nick Kaplan, the art director was Jeff Dryer and the director was Tim Godsall at Biscuit Filmworks.

The executive creative directors were Scott Vitrone and Ian Reichenthal.
