Altoids 'blowhole Bob' by Leo Burnett Chicago

3.2 8 Votes

This creative from Leo Burnett Chicago almost ventures on the grotesque but somehow manages to be funny also. Other characters in the series include a dog with no head but four back legs, a man with the antlers and hooves of a deer and a man with bananas for hands. This quote from the director Tim Godsall says it all: "I was just so happy for the actors, to be honest. There aren't a lot of good roles out there for people with blowholes in the back of their necks or with bananas for hands. So when an opportunity like this comes along it's gratifying. And the dog was such a cool dog... I ended up keeping him."
