Let's shoot our ad in the metaverse (What could go wrong?)

AD NUT'S PICK OF THE WEEK: An ad shoot taking place in the metaverse falls victim to issues that will be familiar to many brands and agencies, in a TVC for First Choice credit cards by Leo Burnett Thailand.

The highly amusing TVC above purports to show an ad being shot in the metaverse. As fancy as that sounds, it's a case of 'same shit, different medium', as the shoot suffers from a problem that plagues many real-world productions: namely, a client team that keeps coming up with "just one more thing" to include, until an ad that was silly to begin with becomes utterly ridiculous.

Beyond providing some good laughs, the concept by Leo Burnett Thailand also happens to make a damn fine ad for First Choice credit cards. The funny bits will keep people watching as the repeated 'takes' hammer home the brand name and product benefits again and again and again.
