New 72andSunny TV Commercial For Zune

72andSunny has just launched new TV and interactive work for Zune, the digital music player from Microsoft. 72andSunny introduced the product last November with a multiplatform ad push centered on the messages of ‘sharing and friendship.’ This theme is continued through the new campaign, which comprises a beautifully surreal :30 TVC directed by Olivier Gondry and shot by Oscar-winning DP Janusz Kaminski, as well as an interactive expression of the campaign consisting of banner ads and an online demo going live next week at The media buy was handled by Universal McCann. The TV spot and banner ads debuted May 8th.

The spot, entitled ‘Zunescape,’ showcases the impressive collection of features for which the Zune is known ?‚àö√ë‚àö√Ü wireless song and picture sharing, fm tuner, vibrant 3-inch screen, videos, a customizable UI, and the unique two-tone industrial design.

Set to the yet-unreleased track ‘This Is Why I Rock’, a remix of the #1 Billboard hit ‘This Is Why I’sm Hot’ by rap artist Mims, who developed a huge following via Myspace, the commercial is a virtual tour through a community of individually personalized Zunes, including a new pink model.
