Elitist Marionette vs. Oatmeal Crisp

This wonderfully weird Elitist Marionette spot is part of a wacky campaign that was launched last year for Oatmeal Crisp cereal. The pay off isn’t really the puppetry per se, but what the puppeteer ends up doing his puppet (be sure to watch it all the way through).

I have no idea if this sort of thing actually helps to cereal or not, but it made me laugh. Raisin Bran needs to have a sense of humour like this.

No word on who built the puppets for the spot, but the campaign was co-directed by Canadians Sean Wainsteim and Jono Hunter.
