The 2009 CLIO Interactive Jury awarded Superfad a Gold CLIO Statue for Durex “Get it On” at the gala awards presentation in Las Vegas on May 13th. The spot was then awarded a Silver Clio for Animation at the TV/Cinema Awards the following evening. The Durex film, featuring three energetic condom balloon animals, was recognized for both its creativity and viral success.

“We are all really excited to receive the CLIOs! I mean, who would have guessed?” says Superfad Creative Director Rob Rugan. “We always thought this spot was going to be cute, but in order for it to work, we knew we had to go all the way. But then we also had to know when to pull…(pregnant pause)…back. I guess it all just came together. In the end, we are stoked about the award and would like to thank the agency, our balloon animal clown, the CLIO judges, and the smooth stylings of Barry White.”
