New York-based production house Dress Code produced the spot “Death to Mosquitos” for Terminix’s new product Attractive Targeted Sugar Bait. The 90-second piece taps into trendy animation styles and techniques, such as no-outline characters and split-screen storytelling. It’s interesting when a commercial innovates, but not every ad needs to do so; sometimes it’s pleasurable to watch an ad that simply carries out the fundamentals and entertains in the process. This piece fits the bill nicely.
