Pizza Hut’s $5 Commercial With Abe Lincoln

Abe Lincoln brings back a bounty of $5 Pizza Hut items to his family. They seem unimpressed by his declaration of the power of the $5 bill. See, his wife (who looks nothing like Mary Todd) explains that a lot of people have their faces on currency: Andrew, Alexander, Ulysses, and Benjamin Franklin…even though he wasn’t even president. She didn’t mention George, and Alexander wasn’t president either. I like the musical fadeout of “It’s All About The Benjamins.” Abe is played by Braden Lynch…anyone know who the wife is? I wonder if people will be amused by this one, or if they’ll think it’s disrespectful to the legacy of Abe Lincoln.

This Couple’s Saving Scheme Pops At Micasa

Micasa is a Swiss furniture store that apparently competes with Ikea. They have a unique discount where you can get 5% off for each family member you bring into the store. Of course, as this young couple embarrassingly learns, they have to be actual people. Other spots in the campaign feature people trying out similar schemes with mannequins and dogs. Cute and funny work from Leo Burnett Switzerland.
