After years of development, patent lawyers, meetings, phone calls, and incredibly long group chats we're finally ready to launch our own product X-Bite and share our invention with the world. An invention that is fully patented by the USPTO office BTW. Check out the video below or the Indiegogo link above.

X-BITE

X Bite is a patented anti-itch innovation that uses a dual action process to cure your worst bug bites fast.  First, an "X" tip applicator is pressed into the bite, a scientifically proven method that displaces the potency of the insect's saliva.  Simultaneously, a powerful antihistamine ointment is applied through the "X" directly onto the bite.  This winning combination is the only one of its kind ever.

WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT - DESIGN. APPROACH. SOCIAL CONSCIENCE

We wanted to make a product that would work for people who love being outside, from experienced campers to first time fishers.  We've designed X Bite to be small, portable and sturdy so you can take it with you no matter where the summer takes you.  Plus, with a modern sleek design, no matter what you're doing people will assume you know what you're doing.  Even if you don't. 

But that's not all we wanted to accomplish. In addition to helping you enjoy your time outdoors, we want to do our part to fight mosquito borne illness. Did you know that nearly half of the world's population is at risk for Malaria exposure? Each year, hundreds of millions of people contract the disease. With each purchase of X Bite, we intend to contribute a portion to help fight this curable disease.

While 3 spots were featured in the Super Bowl XLIV, only one prompted a lawsuit from Lindsey Lohan.  All of it helped E*Trade receive millions of impressions and gain a lot of notoriety.

AND HE SAYS IT.

 

Obviously this no longer works. But it was cool at the time.

Imagine if Moms and Dads took sick days from being Moms and Dads? We like to think this campaign saved millions of children's lives.

PEPTO-BISMOL

Ever found yourself eating a cheeseburger while lost in the woods?  If your like us, and millions of other Americans, the answer is a resounding yes.  Enter a squirrel and his nut-sized Pepto To-Go tabs to save our bellies from our own destruction.  

This first video was UGC in which our fans on social media told us where they wanted to see the squirrel next. The very next day we had over 1000 submissions. We chose our second favorite because our number one featured a squirrel in an exploding car filled with wolves. Also, everything was made with stills.

 

Peptocopter!

This was a digital campaign after the squirrel for Pepto-Bismol To-Go in which a tiny Peptocopter drops relief no matter where you are.

Our government wouldn't stop wasting food aid.  So we talked about the elephant in the room and made an ass out of them anthropomorphically.  The mess helped clean up their act.

This campaign won LG's appliance business and won us the opportunity to work with one of the funniest women on Earth.  Leslie Mann, thank you.

These spots and web contest content came out under the campaign slogan "Got a Little Captain in You." 16 year-old boys have never been more excited to drink rum.

febreze

Febreze's Breathe Happy campaign conducted a series of experiments to prove that their odor-killing technology can fool any nose.  Adding to the lexicon of olefactory literature that noses, in fact, can't see.

These were done in Zbrush, Cinema 4D and Photoshop. Is it a couch with the smelly cigarettes piled up in front of it, or a nose? The line reads: "When odors linger, Breathe Happy."

 

Tri-honda

This regional Tristate area campaign was created to showcase Honda's wide range of features.  What better way to show such a range then by exploiting the Tristate's seemingly endless plethora of personalities?    

This was an extra series of VO driven car feature ads.

Some one-off spots we like and threw in for good measure. Plus something very stupid (re: last video.)

Juice Crew was group composed of Garret along with two friends making cartoon shorts.  It was a learning experience, but a fun one.

Series of Instagram shorts from back when you were limited to 15 second videos.

 

Our one and only attempt at a full pilot episode, it's rough around the edges but I think you can see some potential if you squint hard enough.
