This is an entertaining and heartwarming piece about parenthood from DDB Sydney by director Noah Marshall via The Sweet Shop. Ad Nut greatly enjoys the rapid cuts contrasting the man's pre- and post-daughter pursuits.
But probably the most interesting bit is the tagline: "New grown-up ingredients...How very un-McDonald's". That says a lot about the brand's current standing, doesn't it?
As for the music, Ad Nut prefers the late '70s Meat Loaf songs ("Paradise by the Dashboard Light"...anyone?) but admits the early '90s ditty used here is fitting—and probably has a shortcut to the emotional pathways of the target audience.
