Gallery 02: PlayStation 2 - Burger Barbarians

With the punchy 'Get a Team: Kiss some ass' tagline, PlayStation 2 aims to encourage fans to fight in teams. And instead of showing footage of the game, the campaign adopts a much more entertaining, in-your-face approach, under the direction of subversive comedy pro, Sam Cadman. The ads don't fall into the trap of trying too hard to impress a youth audience but seem to talk to them on their level effortlessly. The scene in the burger bar is a particular favourite.
