    Very well shot. Love the smoke at the end. Could be a tad more revealing though. But I probably think so cause I'm a pretty impatient mofo.

    Cool edit. I wish I had the shot at the end of my commercial.

    Thanks! And the 2001 reference was meant to be obvious, of course

    Nice Cinematography. Good visuals.... But, you didn't finish the beat, and that lost it for me...

    Shoulda' cut out an extra second or two somewhere and finished the beat on the full shot of the toilet... Right as I was processing it, it ended and went away. I needed time to go "ahhhhhh ha ha". Instead I went, "...ah- wait...."

    Thanks.

    The payoff/ final shot was too short. It had no payoff.
    I'm left thinking, where's the rest.
    Everything before that was a work of art.
    I'd love to see more.

    Hehe! I think the funniest thing about this commercial for me, in retrospect, is that all the "teaser" shots of the product clearly showed all the dust and fingerprints and all the stuff that would appear yucky if you knew what the product was. Perfect job romanticizing the utterly unromantic.

    However, I do have to agree that the final beat of the joke didn't play properly. Maybe this could be fixed with something as small as synchronizing the final shot to reveal just as the music gives that final crash of the symbols. Maybe it needs to linger a little longer. Maybe a voiceover talking about the history of the world's greatest inventions. Maybe the music could have gradually gotten louder -- or been less dramatic in the beginning. Who knows? Still, well done! Congrats on your entry.

    Could have done that - but the epicness/the statement of something to be revealed would probably have been weaker at the beginning though IMO. Besides, TV commercials are all compressed to 0 dB digital scale anyway, so there's not much room for nuance in dynamics
