Mini-Commercial: Simon the Ogre

“Simon the Ogre,” a two-minute mini-epic commercial from agency Beattie McGuinness Bungay, was popular in the U.K. earlier this year but went largely unnoticed in the U.S. before winning a silver Lion at Cannes last week.

It was said that after this ad posted, U.K’s Advertising Standards Authorities received a ton of complaints for “causing offense to people with disfigurements and for trivializing disability.”

I saw this as a awesome story of how people portray their day-to-day life. I am not going to spoil the video for you, but leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
