Wieden + Kenndey, Amsterdam have created this funny advert for travel site Booking.com that subverts the genre and shows us what we really want.


John Di Maggio (the voice of Bender from Futurama and Jake from Adventure Time, among others) narrates this cut through piece from Booking.com. Presumably the client was eager to be as subversive as possible just as long as there was an underwater shot of kids jumping into a pool. You just can’t mess with some stuff.

It’s a great advert but once you head over to the Booking.com website you’re met with a rather dull, plain travel site with nothing interesting, quirky or different about it. Bit of a let down really.
