We love it when local agencies and clients based in the UAE create experimental work. Here’s a refreshingly funny video from MediaVest and PixelPlusMedia created by local talent.
Jose Garcellano, who has directed the video, sent us the scoop today. It’s the story of two penguins Abe and Sara who are on their way to Dubai to meet their penguin friends in Ski Dubai – the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East.
Ski Dubai’s YouTube Series on Abe and Sara – Penguins Touring Dubai
The script for the series has been written by Dubai’s own Ali Al Sayed named ‘one of the most influential comedians in the world‘ by Toastmaster’s International Magazine. Ali will appear in many roles in the series. In this video you see Mina Liccione (Ali’s wife in real life – that rhymes!), a pioneer of Dubai’s local comedy scene and founder of Dubomedy Arts playing the role of ‘Audrey Heartburn’ – the travel agent who thinks Dubai is like Johnny Depp – tall, hot and rich.
This is a great mix of a fun concept, penguins (who doesn’t love penguins), local actors and crew and we suspect – interesting footage of Dubai too in the forthcoming videos.
Or even better – why not send a request to Abe and Sara on Facebook? Then you can poke them too
Where do you think Sara and Abe will go next? Let us know in the comments…
