Walmart Clown Commercial
Walmart has hit America’s funnybone with “Clown”, a commercial shown during the Vikings vs Saints football game on Sunday night. Time for Dad to make some funny, says the amateur clown. Out in the lounge it’s a birthday party for the kids. Mum’s telling her friends how much money she and her husband have saved by shopping at Walmart. They even saved enough for a clown… Words are lost as the clown steps into the room. What happens next is a bit like America’s Funniest Home Videos. It’s either very funny or very painful to watch…
The Walmart Clown ad was developed at Publicis & Hal Riney, San Francisco, by executive creative director Roger Camp, creative director/copywriter Mark Sweeny, art director Roger Camp, agency producer DP Odishoo, account manager Jenny Henderson, account supervisor Emily Forsyth.
