This brilliant new spot for Pampers (a Procter & Gamble babycare brand) captures babies making poo in HD and glorious slow-motion. The facial contortions are instantly recognisable to anyone who has cared for a baby. The 75-second spot, created by agency Saatchi & Saatchi London, is set to Strauss’ Thus Spake Zarathustra. The rousing track – used in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey – is wonderfully appropriate.
Executed with great panache, the ad has already been greeted with acclaim, winning a bronze film Lion in the Toiletries, Cosmetics & Beauty category and a Silver Film Craft Lion for casting and a Bronze Film Craft Lion at this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
