Transistor Studios: Two for Cranium

Transistor Studios’ two spots for Cranium star cute characters inspired by elements of the Cranium board game design.

Watch “Launch” | Watch “Treats”

The writing’s a little uneven—the snappy “Treats” keeps you grinning, while “Launch” felt a bit laggy—but Transistor packed the bowling-pin mascots with plenty of personality. I also dig the usage of live action backdrops and human hands. Gives it a bit of a Terry Gilliam/Monty Python feel.
