An unassuming lad in a 208, busy minding his own business at a stoplight, is set upon by the eternally competing gang known for its outrageous rides and even more outrageous tactics. Even the little-regarded Private Meekly gets a front-and-center cameo.<br /><br />The ad was headed by Young &amp; Rubicam Brasil, directed by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet for <a href="http://www.partizan.com/">Partizan</a>, and was edited by Mr. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilly_Willy">Smedley</a>, who might or might not be another cartoon connection to Chilly Willy.

Whoever that ad agency is, someone in America needs to hire them! That was one of the best commercials I've seen in a while! Guess it can't hurt I loved that cartoon as a kid.
