Logitech is promoting entertainment technology in “Robot”, a television commercial featuring a robot hoping to relax after a stressful day at work. Nothing goes right at work. The computer shorts out, the printer eats his project, and he can’t even get a candy bar out of the machine. This bad luck follows him home as his cellphone won’t get service and his car breaks down. Once home all is fine however, with all Logitech products working just fine.
The Robot campaign was developed at Goodby Silverstein & Partners by creative director Rich Silverstein, executive creative director Margaret Johnson, group creative director David Kolbusz, art director Jack Woodworth, copywriter Spencer Riviera and agency producer Jennie Lindstrom.
