New Campaign around Verizon’s New 5G from the community


Here is the latest Verizon campaign, developed in partnership with cross-cultural creative agency the community, ahead of the launch of its new 5G Ultra-Wideband.

“Firsts” celebrates the brand’s legacy as an industry leader as the brand prepares to unveil Verizon 5G, yet again proving its position at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution. 

Featuring footage from 1983, “First Call” shows the first commercial wireless phone call in Chicago as Verizon engineer John Foley shares his memories from that day. 



The second spot, "First to CDMA,” includes a 1989 video of Los Angeles-based Verizon engineers testing CDMA technology, which allows users to make calls on the move without losing signal. While the first two spots draw on the past, the third and final one looks toward the future. 



 “First to 5G” unpacks the different “firsts” the brand’s engineers completed in order to create the first and only 5G Ultra-Wideband – a development that, ultimately, will change how people learn, work, and live.


All three spots will run across broadcast TV and online video. Please see below for a full list of team credits and let me know if you would like to cover this campaign.

Electrifying Samsung Campaign Transforms Runners into Anime-Inspired Heroes



Great Guns Director, Tal Zagreba, directs a rousing new Samsung campaign for the Tel Aviv Marathon, created by Leo Burnett and co-produced by Great Guns. The film celebrates the launch of the ‘Samsung Calories Marathon’, which introduces a charitable spin to Israel’s biggest annual sports event: the more calories the runners burn, the more food products Samsung donates to the needy.

The animated 30-second film takes viewers on an electrifying journey alongside the marathon runners. The film cleverly weaves together food and sport with action-packed framing and vibrant colours. The runners are transformed into heroic figures who zigzag to avoid colossal cans of food and activate energy power-ups that propel them towards the finish line.

Samsung teamed up with Israel’s largest soup kitchen, Pitchon Lev, which services over 250,000 Israelis each year with food products and basic needs. Samsung has pledged to match each calorie burnt with a similar calorie-rich food product it will donate on runners’ behalf to the organization. Runners will be outfitted with a special band that will monitor how many calories have been raised and burnt – these will be displayed in real time in Tel Aviv’s central Rabin Square. The public will also be invited to get involved through branded treadmill stations throughout the city, where they will be able to donate their calories to those in need.

Director, Tal Zagreba, was tasked with evoking a powerful marathon experience through a minimalistic approach using only the marathon’s logo and Samsung’s logo colours. In developing the right look, Tal and animation director, Robert Moreno, were inspired by the Japanese anime they loved as children, such as The Animatrix, Akira and Mob Psycho 100.

Tal comments: “This is my third collaboration with Leo Burnett and it has been a true pleasure each time. Adam Polachek [CEO] and Ami Alush [CCO] are brilliant people with real guts – with them, I always know that there’s something special on the table. This time, a visual immediately came to mind of products evolving from the runners’ sweat. The guys loved the idea and gave me complete creative freedom to fulfil my vision.”
