Start Your Summer with Honda


Once upon a time, the end of school was the greatest moment of the year.

The feeling of freedom, no more teachers, no more homework…cue the Alice Cooper!

TV Spot:

Unless of course you’re a parent, then the end of school means the beginning of dealing with your little darlings 24/7.  

This classic dichotomy of emotions between kids and parents at the end of the school year drives this month’s Honda Start Your Summer sales event.

TV, online, POP, and social media videos have fun with kids and parents and the brilliant deals available on Hondas.

Enjoy, be you kid or parent.

SF Giants 2015 TV Campaign


Screen Shot 2015-04-08 at 3.38.49 PM

This week at SF Giants Media Day, Baker Street’s epic and sometimes hilarious campaign debuted. Here’s a look at most (13 — and there are a couple surprises still to be revealed) of our TV spots.

The launch spot, “One Giant Moment” came from the imagination of a man who didn’t know what a baseball was before hanging out with Baker Street.
But after a few years and a couple of parades, Ken Woodard became part of the Together generation. And his passion for the SF Giants and his personal observation of what we all went through that night during game 7 of the 2014 World Series became this epic film.
Not sure what I’m more proud of, directing this classic idea or turning Ken Woodard into a rabid Giants fan.

A Giant Postseason. Together.


Screen Shot 2014-12-13 at 9.20.40 AM

That just happened.

The San Francisco Giants not only shocked the world again, but they kept us busy all through October — and happily celebrating most of November. So now on the eve of starting all over again for the 2015 season, we look back and share our Orange October digital, print, and outdoor efforts.

A special thanks and giant ups to photographer Brad Mangin whose genius inspired and often lensed the work of this year’s campaign. (manginphotography.com)

As the SF Giants leveled each impossible challenge, we stayed busy stirring the particles and stoking the mojo with our multi-platform social media pep rally.

Can’t wait to do it again.

Social Media Campaign:  

As a new story evolved daily throughout the post season, so did our presence in the Socialsphere. Here’s our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram campaign from Game 1 of the NLDS through Game 7 of the most Classic of Falls.

9.30.14 Post: If you had to win 1 game in enemy territory, you might as well send up an 18-game winner with a 2.98 era, a devastating left-handed slider, and the ability to fix the team bus if it breaks down on the way to PNC Park from the hotel: Suffice it to say, we at Baker Street are #Madbumbelievers!

Print Campaign:  

We believed it would happen, even before it did. Our team worked feverishly to create congratulatory print ads in anticipation of our third World Championship in five years. We cheered proudly when Panda caught that fly for the last out. And again when these came out in the San Francisco Chronicle.

OOH Campaign:  

When we create postseason outdoor, we have no idea what fate has in store for the Giants. So we create messages that endure no matter what the outcome of the postseason.

From the Desk of the Creative Chief: Back to School


Anybody who ever went  back to school– that should be everybody, btw-  knows the bitter sweet feelings that go along with the end of summer.

Back to school in an Odyssey
Anybody who ever sent kids who have pretty much worked your last nerve over a seemingly endless summer, knows the elation that goes along with sending the little darlings back to class and out of your hair!

Happy about the end of summer

Those are the themes at work in our latest Labor Day Sales event for our Honda clients, ironically named “The End of Summer Celebration”. The parents are psyched.. the kids, not so much.

Our TV and online video featured elated parents driving their bummed out children to school on the first day.  Our kid actors could soooo relate… every one of them turned in a killer performance – they truly felt the pain. Check out the extended online version below.

And things really got fun when we turned over the Hondas – a Civic, an Accord, and an Odyssey!- over to the stunt drivers to see how much drifting and power sliding they could do with the world’s most reliable cars. Check out how much torque they got out of the Odyssey — nice job, Tony!

Big thanks to Tiburon’s St. Hilary School (where my own little darlings did their elementary and middle school time) for letting us turn their parking lot into a NASCAR track. And to all the players and crew.
