My friend Chuck Meehan, Co-Chief Creative Officer, McCann, Detroit, returns with his hit Super Bowl commercial in-hand. "No Way, Norway" stars Will Ferrell, Kenan Thompson, Awkwafina and the GM Electric vehicle. Chuck breaks down how it all came to be, how it was shot and what he looks for hiring a director. This ad was deftly directed by Jake Szymanski, who has previously collaborated with Ferrell, and has a standing invite to the pod.
Fun fact: Chuck is our first three-peat guest and the only guest to briefly date Helen. Check the archives.
