Sun, Son

There’s an easier way to create an energy-efficient home, and sometimes you just need a nice guy in a sun costume to tell you.

Video Details


Hubby & Wife make a weekend of improving their home’s energy efficiency, only to be completely knocked out by its completion. The friendly, neighborhood Sun shows up at the end to share that there is a much easier solution to their energy concerns–the Sun!

Strategy & Psychology

This traditionally-formatted commercial follows the problem/solution format to first help homeowners identify with the couple, and then for a comically-dressed character to show up and offer a better alternative at the end. This spokesperson approach, much like Geico or Progressive ads employ, leverages an instantly-recognizable character to provide a simple, common-sense solution. And if the character could look that absurd and still sound reasonable, we know he’s probably speaking the truth.

Campaign Integration

This video can work well as a top-of-funnel, direct-response video or as a solution-oriented video that can be followed with offer-specific ads. Use the blank space at the end to add your brand taglines, or purchase the ‘Sun Call To Action’ package, which includes multiple short clips of the Sun speaking about different offers.
