Commercials That Make us Giggle like Schoolgirls

When you work at a company like Set Scouter that helps location scout for commercials, you end up watching a LOT of them.

We started to take note of just how many Canadian production companies are turning out commercials that are simply said, comedic gold. Surely, directors aren’t the only ones contributing to the funny, since there are many creative agencies behind these ads, but these directors executed it so perfectly, we are starting to fan-girl.

We wanted to take a second to give these directors a slow clap. Not just for their creativity, but for making me spit my midday beer all over Cards against Humanity, I mean…. my coffee all over my laptop. I was working…I promise.


1. Director: Tim Godsall

2. Director: Michael Clowater
Production Company: Radke

My favourite: Skittles Rich
The lolz: I would like all of you to send me your e-mail addresses so that I can be one step closer to being Skittles rich. If not, I’ll settle for someone who can set me up with Danny Falcon…

3. Directors: Adam and Dave

4. Directors: David Quinn
Production Company: Sons and Daughters
