hsr/ny mixes Cingular campaign for BBDO
To promote the worlds first phone with iTunes, hsr/ny Mixer Steve Rosen completed the audio post for a new campaign, Cingular Holiday, for Cingular Wireless and their agency BBDO (New York, NY). The trio of television spots, Alter Ego Girl, Alter Ego Guy and Hispanic, began airing nationally on September 8th.
The Faders song ?No Sleep Tonight underscores Alter Ego Girl which demonstrates how the iTunes compatible ROKR phone works. Walking through the City, a girls reflection dances to the beat of the tune on her MP3 player. Her cell phone rings, pausing both the music and her dancing reflection. She takes the call, goes back to her music and her ?alter ego rocks on. In a variation of the spot, Alter Ego Guy, a young mans reflection dances through the city to Bent Fabrics ?Jukebox. The third spot is an Hispanic variation of the others. Each promotes the new phone and is tagged, ?100 tunes to go. Only from Cingular. Raising the bar. Steve Rosen completed the audio post utilizing a Soundtracs DPC-II digital console and Digidesign Pro Tools.
