Post house reprises role in DDB
Chicago’s popular “State of Turbulence” campaign featuring the Packer QB and
SNL’s George Wendt and Robert Smigel.

CHICAGO—November 20, 2013— Filmworkers completed a “dream”
assignment in handling the post work for DDB Chicago’s latest “Discount Double-Check
commercial. The spot is a sequel to an earlier ad in which Green Bay Packers
quarterback Aaron Rodgers found himself on a plane with Saturday Night Live
alums George Wendt and Robert Smigel, cast in the role of Chicago Bears “Super
Fans.”

State of Turbulence II
(Dream
) picks up where the earlier spot left off. Still on the plane,
Rodgers has dozed off and, in a dream, sees himself transformed into a Packer
Super Fan (complete with a super-sized double chin and belly). Wendt is also
asleep and experiencing his own, albeit more pleasant, dream. He is lying on a
massage table and is being tended to by a masseur played by former Bears coach
Mike Ditka. Wendt is delighted to discover that his pillow is actually an
oversized sausage. The spot debuted during Monday Night Football’s telecast of
a Bears-Packers game on November 4th.
As with the original State
of Turbulence,
Filmworkers provided color grading, editorial finishing and
visual effects services for the new spot. The first spot, which debuted in
September, was named Ad of the Day by Adweek magazine.
Filmworkers is located at 232 E. Ohio St. Penthouse,
Chicago, IL 60611. For more information, call (312) 664-9333 or visit www.filmworkers.com.
