INTERspectacular Shows Us the Unscientific World


INTERspectacular wrote and directed a series of chuckle-worthy spots for the Science Channel, a new arm of the Discovery Channel. I love it when design studios have a head for writing. It separates them from the pack and discourages them from devolving into agency monkeys and eye-candy factories.

The style for these spots is great, too. It reminds me of a specific cartoon from my youth, but the name of it is eluding me. It had something to do with cowboys, I think… anyone have any idea what I’m talking about?
