Cousins Follow Up Spec Hit Viral for Skittles with Reese’s ‘Love Child’
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Giving birth has never been so sweet. Directing team Jordan
Sharon and Keith Hamm, A.K.A. "Cousins," follow up their infamous
Skittles "Newlyweds" viral with Reese's "Love Child." The new viral
features an unexpected twist in the delivery room, or rather,
several unexpected twists. Reese's "Love Child" may well leave you
thinking, "Oh no they di-dn't!"
Oh yes, they did.
And they had some help from The Mill L.A., lead by Adam Carroll in
3D and Nick Tayler in 2D, along with 3D Assists Kyle Moore and Matt
Vogan, and 2D Artists Steve Cokonis, Remedy Huynh, Margolit Steiner
and Patrick Munoz. Matt Longwell animated and Gregory Reese graded
"Love Child." And lest we forget Cousins' line producer Kali Erin
Niemann, DP Eric Robbins and editor Ryan Delk.
While over 14 million views between Vimeo and YouTube for Skittles
"Newlyweds" may sound a little mind boggling, directors Sharon and
Hamm weren't entirely surprised. "We think Skittles is a smash
because it's so unexpected," they say. "It's the kind of thing
someone might joke about, but you'd never ever expect to actually
see it. It's got the OMG factor. We hope Reese's will, too."
