Other: Account Planner: Patrick Meade Strategic Planner: Chloe Murphy Rationale: In this ad for Three Mobile, we tell the story of the Loneliest Whale, and of the many people around the world who are working tirelessly to find the Loneliest Whale and communicate with it. The human desire for this creature to be heard says so much about the value we as people put on communication, which is why we decided to tell this unique story. A human counterpart to the whale was essential to this story. We needed to find someone authentic who inhabited this character, was unique, looked the part and would be comfortable at sea to bring this adventure to life. We scoured 14 countries and when we found Torben Zeller in Denmark, we knew we had our man. After our initial auditions we work-shopped the story with Torben until he inhabited the role. His understanding of the story, the sea, his dedication to the part and his face brought a unique magic to the piece.
