USA Today, MTV, and Entertainment Weekly’s Minds Are In The Gutter

Pop on some Al Green ‘cause this blog post is about to get sexy. It’s been five days since Bryan Buckley’s film The Bronze opened the Sundance Film Festival and while many people are abuzz about the film’s humor and its actors, several news outlets have chosen to highlight one of the film’s more untoward…

Watch The Bronze Q&A

With all of the excitement, the ballyhoo, the hullabaloo if you will, surrounding The Bronze this past week, we have been recommending everyone go see Bryan Buckley’s new film as it makes its Sundance debut, but in doing so we have been remiss. We have ignored all of those people who can’t go to Sundance….

Wayne’s Call of Duty is AdWeek’s Pick of the Day AND MORE!

You ever find yourself skulking through a level of Call of Duty only to be fragged moments later by some 9 year old in Poughkeepsie with a potty mouth? And the kid just adds literal insult to injury by trash talking you as the Kill Cam shows you how you died? You ever stop to…

Variety Raves About The Bronze

Bryan’s film The Bronze premiered at Sundance last night as the Opening Night Film and Variety is giving it a glowing morning-after review. That’s right, no walk of shame here, folks. In his article titled, “5 Reasons ‘The Bronze’ Could Be a Breakout Comedy in 2015” Ramin Setoodeh really talks Bryan and his crew up…

Tonight, Tonight, The Bronze Opens Tonight

If you didn’t hum some Sondheim tunes beneath that title you shame me. But I didn’t come here to talk 1960’s showtunes, I’m here to talk SUNDANCE! Bryan Buckley’s feature film debut gets its world premiere tonight as Sundance Film Festival’s Opening Night Film! No pressure, right? Good news is, people are already talking about…

The Bronze Makes Some More Top Ten Lists

With opening night a mere ONE DAY away The Wrap has your back with a list of the “10 Hottest Sundance Sales Titles” and, yet again, The Bronze is number one with a bullet. Now, we grant you, this list is ostensibly alphabetical, but we know why Bryan’s film is at the top of this…

Two Days Before The Bronze World Premiere

Two days until the opening of Sundance 2015. You know what that means: every store that sells winter boots in the greater Los Angeles area is going to be sold out. It ALSO means two days until the world premiere of Bryan Buckley’s new film The Bronze which is playing opening night of the festival….

Rolling Stone Recommends The Bronze

Let’s say you go to Sundance, you pick out your movies, but you find out that you can only see 25 of them (I know, right, this always happens to ME). Rolling Stone is here to help. They have gathered together a list of the 25 Must-See Films of Sundance 2015 and whose movie is…

Wayne McClammy In Shots!

Big news, true believers! Shots magazine did a 5 page spread in their February issue on one of our favorite Hungry People, Mr. Wayne McClammy. We can’t re-post the article herein — that would be stealing — but we can tell you it is comprehensive. Those of you who have met Mr. McClammy know that, much…

Sundance Sits Down With Bryan Buckley

By now we all know Bryan Buckley’s new feature film, The Bronze, is going to open the Sundance Film Festival. That’s just common knowledge like global warming or The DaVinci Code. But how much do we really know about this wonderful new comedy? Well, with the festival little more than a week away, the good…

Put Bryan Buckley On Your Sundance Calendar

Showtimes are up for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. You’ve got seven chance to see Bryan Buckley’s new film The Bronze if you’re going to Sundance. There is literally no excuse for not seeing it. “I slipped on the ice, twisted my ankle and am now bedridden through the festival.” That didn’t stop a certain…

Conor’s Skittles Tops AdWeek and We’re Sorry

You know how we’ve been talking about Conor Byrne’s Skittles spot so much? Like, how it was Creativity Online’s “Pick of the Day” and it was on Campaign and the front page of Shots and also on Shoot? Well, there’s something else we didn’t tell you. You might want to sit down for this… AdWeek…

Conor Makes Front Page of Shots

Well, yesterday Conor’s Skittles spot “Struck by a Rainbow” was on the front page of Creativity Online. Today it’s the front page of Shots. This would normally be a feat in and of itself but the cherry on top of this glorious praise-filled sundae is they refer to Conor as “Hungry Man’s rising star.” We…

Conor Byrne’s Skittles Spot Makes Creativity Online Front Page

Conor’s Skittles spot “Struck By A Rainbow” is CreativityOnline’s Pick of the Day today and their praise couldn’t be higher. “…the film — and its trailer — are brilliantly acted, posing as the kind of serious documentary that would win a prize at Sundance or Cannes.” Having already won a prize at Cannes this year…

Craig and Gary Busey Answer the Tough Questions

Why are we here? Where did we come from? What are the technological capabilities and software compatabilities of an invertebrate’s exoskeleton? Life is full of tough questions and in their new spot for Amazon Craig Brownrigg and Gary Busey answer one of the above.

Bryan Buckley’s Film To Open Sundance

No way to sugar coat it. No need to gild the lily. This news is simply too big to be overemphasized. Bryan Buckley’s feature film The Bronze got into Sundance, and not only that, but it is the Opening Night Movie! A stark new comedy written by Melissa and Winston Rauch and directed by Bryan,…

Pizza Hut Gets Exotic With Kinka Usher

Sriracha drizzle. Pretzel crust. Buffalo sauce. These sort of additions to pizza seem natural to us here in The States. After all, we’re the country that brought the world the Double-Down (you’re welcome), thus it was only natural that we’d eventually concoct the brilliant idea of stuffing bacon and cheese into our pizza crusts. But…

Bryan Buckley and Mike Myers Are ‘On Target’ On Sears

Oh Canada. You have provided this world with so much joy. Poutine. Hockey. Tim Horton’s doughnuts. And, yes, even Ryan Gosling. You have given us so much, I think it’s time we gave something back. We’ve heard you’ve been concerned that your nations’ branch of Sears is going out of business so Bryan Buckley down…

Mike Myers and Bryan Buckley Save Sears Canada!

If you’ve been living in Canada lately you have inevitably found yourself wondering one thing: How are the Tampa Bay Lightning at the top of the NHL Eastern Conference? If you’ve been living in Canada lately and you’ve been wondering two things, the second is certain to be: Are those rumors about Sears Canada going…

McClammy Unlocks Call of Duty DLC

That’s right, Gamers. In his newest spot for Call of Duty & Mountain Dew, Wayne McClammy shows you how to get a DLC (“Downloadable Content” for the non-video-game-enthusiasts) for destroying a Mountain Dew vending machine mid-battle. Okay, well, that’s not entirely true, but he does show you what it would be like if such a…

Happy Halloween From Hungry Man!

Having trouble getting into the spirit of the holiday? Well look no further. Between Wayne’s Geico and Skittles commercials as well as Dave’s spot with a portly bearded white dude dressing up as Christina Applegate we here at Hungry Man have everything you need to get you in the Halloweeny mood. Happy Halloween to you…

Dave Gets Christina Applegate a Decoy

Have you ever wished you had a decoy of yourself? Well it doesn’t matter if you have because Christina Applegate has and she’s famous so hush up and watch what happens when C-App (she lets me call her that) gets Fruitwater to set her up with a decoy in Dave Laden’s newest spot.

Help Save A Teenager, Watch Wayne’s Geico Spot

You guys, this is serious so listen up. With tomorrow being the first day of October and thus Halloween season is officially upon us we want to warn you about a rampant problem that’s decimating the number of teenagers and twenty-somethings we have in this country. That problem is Homicidal Maniacs. As Wayne McClammy shows…

Pro Giant Spiders or Anti Giant Spiders? Hungry Man Solves Once and for All

With Halloween right around the corner Wayne McClammy and Skittles would like to warn you never to trust a giant spider. We’re not sure where you fall in that “do I trust or do I not trust giant spiders” debate but we say don’t. We are a firm anti when it comes to giant spiders.

Is Eli Manning Prowling the Grounds At MetLife? Spoiler Alert: Yes

In his latest team-up with Craig Brownrigg, Eli Manning proves that if you find yourself tailgating at MetLife Stadium this football season and you run into a guy that resembles Eli Manning, it just might be him… … especially if he’s all jacked up on Dunkin Donuts coffee. If that’s the case then it’s definitely…

Fast Company Is All About Taika’s Vampire Moc-Doc

Anybody lucky enough to go to this years Toronto International Film Festival? I meant to go but it’s not hockey season yet and why would someone go to Canada when it’s not hockey season? That’s like visiting New England at a time when there’s no browning foliage to look at. Anyways, if you were at…

Hungry Man NFL Drinking Game

As we approach our second week of the NFL season we’d like to recommend a fun way to enjoy this great American pastime even more. We realize the commercials are everybody’s least favorite part of the NFL weekend — we’ve come to terms with it, it’s okay — so we here at Hungry Man would…

Hank’s State Farm Is AdForum’s Editor’s Pick of the Week

The love for Hank’s State Farm spot just keeps a’comin’. AdForum labeled it their Editor’s Pick of the week. If you haven’t seen it yet watch it now and believe it later.

People Love Perlman, Hans, Schneider, and Franz

Apparently we here at Hungry Man aren’t the only people who appreciate some good’ol’fashioned nostalgia. Everybody’s talking about Hank’s latest State Farm spots, “Trainers” and “Steve’s Kid.” Here are just a smattering of the kind things people are saying about us: “Trainers” Washington Post Buzzfeed AdWeek Sports Illustrated Post Crescent Milwaukee Journal Sentinal Madison.com Fan…

Pumping Up With Hank Perlman, Aaron Rodgers, and [of course] Hans and Franz

Anybody watching last night’s NFL season opener got to see one hell of a blast from the past. If you were born post 1990 you can just tune this one out. You’re not likely to understand the epic-osity that befell the third quarter of the Seahawks/Packers game, but Hank Perlman’s latest State Farm commercial premiered…

Kick Off The NFL Season With The Manning Boys! #TBT

It’s throwback thursday, y’all! And with the NFL regular season beginning tonight I can think of only one proper way to celebrate…. FOOTBALL ON YOUR PHONE! #TBT

Campers Outside LA Dunkin Donuts And Craig’s Eli Manning

If you drove down Wilshire Boulevard very early Tuesday morning you may have seen people camping out on the sidewalks around 12th street. This sight is nothing new here in Southern California. You probably figured Taylor Swift was making an appearance, or perhaps those One Direction children. But as you get closer to the store,…

Bryan And Tina Fey Crash The Emmys

Anybody that watched last night’s Emmy Awards probably noticed a familiar face. No, not Vince Gilligan deservedly sweeping the awards. Tina Fey! Bryan’s new American Express spot with Miss Bossypants herself made its debut last night to glowing reviews. Why, Creativity Online even tossed it up on their site first thing this morning. Tina’s not…

Brownrigg’s All Over ESPN

If you’ve been to ESPN.com lately you may have seen a familiar spot popping up here and there. No, not Wayne’s “Madden Season”… well, yeah, they were talking about that spot too, but that’s not what this post is about. Craig Brownrigg’s Wiser commercial “Art Gallery” has been playing non-stop. With football (and hockey) season…

Madden Season Makes Its Rounds

Well, Wayne’s Madden spot has scorched the internet like the brush fires engulf the hills of Southern California (We can say that. We live here… cough… cough…). We here at Hungry Man know how difficult it can be to keep track of where this spot’s been mentioned so we thought we’d compile a comprehensive list…

Conor Byrne Makes Shots Magazine

Right around the time he was accepting the Young Director’s Award at Cannes a lot of people found themselves wondering, “Who is this Conor Byrne kid?” Well, Shots Magazine has got it covered.

Wayne’s Spot DID Take Over

Well, I said on Friday that Wayne’s Madden spot with Dave Franco and Kevin Hart was about to take over and you guys did not make a liar out of me. A lot of you watched this weekend. Roughly 4 million of you, to be vaguely exact. I guess you’re interested, so, given that, I…

Wayne’s Madden Spot With Kevin Hart and Dave Franco is About To Take Over

Have you seen that new Madden spot Wayne McClammy did with Kevin Hart and Dave Franco? No? Well you should. This spot is about to TAKE OVER. CBS SB Nation Fan Sided The Bleecher Report The Sacramento Bee Fast Company These are just a few of the first round of websites throwing press Wayne’s way…

Craig Brownrigg and Tony Hale Stand Up To Cancer

As we enter the last month of vacation season we here at Hungry Man would like to teach you the fastest way to impress the opposite sex whilst checking into a hotel. Step 1: Use RoomKey.com to book said hotel. Step 2: That’s it. Still not getting it? That’s fine. Craig Brownrigg’s new spot for…

Scott Vincent Urges You To Drop Your Pants For Progress

Or… well… his new spot does. Scott’s commercials for Depend are making splashes today (no disgusting pun intended) in the ad world. The spots themselves are wonderful little pieces of inspiration. Like Bill Pullman urging us to fight some aliens or Mel Gibson demanding the Scotts get their freedom, Scott Vincent’s new spots make a…

Hank’s Xfinity Spot Makes The Garage Cool Again

In the nineties it was bands, in the aughts you weren’t cool unless you had a half-pipe in your garage, now in the twenty-teens you ain’t got jack if your garage doesn’t have a tech start-up housed inside. In his new spot for Xfinity Hank Perlman shows us just how easy it is to put…

A Beer-Gut Public Service Announcement From Bryan Buckley

Summer’s here, beach season is in full swing, but you, my metaphorical friend, have a beer gut. What is one to do? Where is one to turn when all of one’s friends say to one, “Hey, one, we’re going to the beach. Grab a 12 pack and meet us there!” You want to go party…

Hank’s New Gordon Ramsay Spot

Check out Hank’s latest AT&T commercial featuring that manic genius himself, Mr. Gordon Ramsay… … please don’t tell him I called him manic. Please. I don’t want to get hit with a frying pan.

Taika Waititi Has The Number One Movie In New Zealand

Channing Tatum, Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman. These guys don’t stand a chance against Taika Waititi. This week Taika’s latest film What We Do In The Shadows (trailer above) scored the number one spot at the New Zealand box office, raking in over $750,000. Now, I know it would be rash to make sweeping declarations like…

Conor Byrne Takes First Prize in Cannes

I know we’ve been talking big news out of Cannes every day this week, but today we have REALLY big news out of Cannes. Hungry Man progeny Conor Byrne has officially won FIRST PRIZE in the Young Director’s Awards, under the category of North American Short Film. Above is a picture of Conor and his…

Mannings Take Home Cannes Silver

More news out of Cannes this week. Bryan Buckley’s DirecTV spot “Football on Your Phone” earned itself a Silver Lion in the PR category for Media, Arts & Entertainment.

Hank’s New Spot Is For All The Dads Out There

And now, a heart-warming turn. Hank Perlman’s newest ad for American Greetings is making rounds today. Both AdWeek and Creativity Online picked up the spot which highlights the difficulties in being a father. “Dad Casting” is American Greeting’s follow-up to their widely popular mother’s day spot “Toughest Job In The World.” Whether you’re a father…

Scott Poises Some Questions

Let’s say a woman leans over to you and informs you that she has Sam in her pants. What would your reaction be? Personally I would ask if this arrangement was consensual but, hey, I’m a humanist. Give Scott Vincent’s newest spot for Poise a watch and think about your response to said encounter. Who…

The Uncredible Shrinking Man

Buckley’s Burger King Spot is the Cock of the Walk

Subservient Chicken is back in the coop, folks, and Bryan Buckley’s the one ruling the roost. All chicken puns aside, AdWeek’s talking about all the hits Buckley’s newest Burger King spot, “Subservient Chicken Redemption,” has gotten. They also describe the commercial with words like, “bizarre” and “intrigued,” which we’ll take as extremely high praise. Great…

Bryan’s Land of Intensity Gets Praise

Bryan Buckley’s newest spots for Starburst are garnering some internet chatter this week. Agency Spy, Ads of the World, and AdWeek are all highlighting the unexplainably juicy spots featuring body builders, fighter jets, and even tears. You can see both spots at any of the links above and you can catch “Land of Intensity” right…

Subservient Chicken Rides Again!

2004 was a great year. It was the year Facebook was invented. The Notebook brought women across the world to tears (as well as most men). Evanescence was a thing. But, without a doubt, the biggest event to come out of 2004 was Burger King’s Subservient Chicken. As I’m sure you all remember, Subservient Chicken…

Wayne’s Titans Make Shoot

Wayne’s Titanfall spot “Shadow” is up on ShootOnline today.

Scott Vincent’s Hot FM Starts Tonight!

That’s right, kiddies. Today is the day you’ve been waiting for. It’s finally time to watch Scott Vincent’s newest baby, This is Hot 97. VH1 would describe the show thusly, “Known as the place ‘Where Hip Hop Lives,’ New York’s globally recognized #1 radio station HOT 97 is teaming up with VH1 to take viewers…

Wayne Takes Home An Addy

I can see where that headline may have been misleading. An Addy is an advertising award given by The Greater San Francisco Ad Club and Wayne’s Madden spot “Running Back Sons” took home the silver Monday night. Big ups to Wayne for making a hilarious football ad featuring Arian Foster and this year’s Super Bowl…

A Lott’a Buzz for Hank, Sarah Silverman, and Orbit

If you’ve been on the internet in the past day you have certainly come across at least one article talking about Hank’s Orbit spot “Lipstick” starring the very funny, very desirable Sarah Silverman (That’s not objectification. Watch the spot!). If you only have your websites read to you by a third party and thus you…

Titanfall Makes AdForum’s Top 5

Wayne’s Titanfall spot is at it again. After a weekend of non-stop airing during college basketball, his spot, “Shadow,” has now made the Top 5 List at AdForum. I’d like to assume that most of you know what AdForum is but my grandmother used to tell me to not to assume for reasons that had…

AdWeek Loves Conor Byrne’s First Commercial With Hungry Man

Conor Byrne’s first commercial with Hungry Man Productions is an instant success. AdLand and AdWeek have highlighted it as an ad to watch. Agency Spy calls it, “…the cutest advertisement you see today.” Though very funny, AdWeek also says it “…tugs at heartstrings with grade-schoolers.” Don’t worry, though, we won’t get too emotional for ya….

Hungry Man Takes Home Oscar Gold As Well

The Weinsteins ain’t got nothin’ on Hungry Man! The New York Times released their first ever post-awards awards this year and they had some very kind things to say about Kinka Usher’s Pepsi spot “Mini Hollywood” as well as Bryan Buckley’s American Express commercials with Tina Fey. “BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY The Pepsi minican commercial, which…

Kinka’s Pepsi Takes Twitter

“While Google, Netflix, McDonald’s and Oreo also fared well during the [Academy Award] broadcast, Pepsi’s spot for its mini cans produced the greatest single spike in Twitter activity of the night. Pepsi peaked at 1,200 tweets per minute at one point after the ad ran.” Yeah, the Pepsi mini spot to which AdWeek is referring…

Nebraska ain’t the only thing that’s black and white on Oscar night! Bryan Buckley’s newest spots for American Express aired during Hollywood’s Biggest Night featuring miss Bossypants herself, Tina Fey. You can check out all three spots below in case you missed the show. And if you did miss the show, spoiler alert: Fast Six…

Kinka’s Pepsi is Creativity’s Pick of the Day

The Oscars this weekend will feature a commercial with some pretty familiar dialogue. Kinka Usher’s newest spot for Pepsi pulls a LaBeouf and steals all of its lines from some of the best writers of the last half century (“borrows” suits it better, actually. “Homage” perhaps). Just released today we’re ecstatic to see “Mini Hollywood”…

Taika Is Up For An Andy

Taika is up for three Andy Awards. Yes, it sounds like an award your college buddy made up after nobody could chug three beer bongs in two minutes like his roommate Andy could, but it’s not. The 50th Annual Andy Awards is designed to celebrate “bravery in advertising” as well as pretty good alliteration. Taika…

Hank Perlman. Vanilla Ice. Ninja Turtles.

I have waited nearly my entire life for this moment. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are now Kraft Macaroni and Cheese characters, and Vanilla Ice is rapping about it. If you were alive in the ’90’s you know just how much this makes every Millenial’s year, and it looks like it’s not just us… Agency…

Dave’s Trolli Spot Airs During Super Bowl….. in Chicago

If you live in the greater Chicago area you may have noticed a familiar commercial during your Super Bowl broadcast last week. Dave Laden’s Trolli spot, “Gummi Dog” aired during the venerable footballing event thus prompting many Chicagoans to utter a, “What the hell was that?” Which is exactly the reaction Trolli’s weirdly awesome campaign…

Wayne’s BHF Commercial Gets a Lego Makeover

Remember Wayne’s award winning spot “Vinnie” for the British Heart Foundation? The good people at Lego sure do. In honor of their new film coming soon to theaters in the UK, they’ve decided to re-do some of the most popular advertisements in England with Legos. Whose is up first? Why Wayne McClammy’s “Vinnie” spot, of…

AdWeek Favors Wayne’s Diet Dew As One of the Best of the Bowl

NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. is getting a little love from AdWeek. Or, rather, the ducks in the spot are. Regardless, Wayne McClammy’s spot “Dale Call” for Diet Mountain Dew was, according to David Kiefaber, “One of my favorite ads from Super Bowl night…” Though he acknowledges that the spot didn’t actually run during the…

New York Times, AdWeek, The New Yorker, The Today show…. ‘nuf said

It’s always nice when an article about the best Super Bowl commercials begins with, “Brilliantly directed by Bryan Buckley…” First sentence out of the gate. We love it. Indeed the news outlets are talking about the Super Bowl… well… the commercials of the Super Bowl. The game itself, not as much. Hungry Man has made…

Hank Krafts Brilliant New Spots

Sorry for the pun…. they just come to me… Anywho, people are posting all about Hank’s new Kraft spot, “What I Did For Love.” AdWeek, LE Book, Ads of the World, Agency Spy! They all seem to love it, especially Agency Spy how had some particularly nice things to say about the campaign. They even…

It’s Kinka’s first spot with Hungry Man and he’s already getting some industry lovin’.

Creativity Online Likes Bryan’s Xbox Cautionary Tale

Creativity Online highlighted Bryan Buckley’s new Xbox spot, “Lost.” The spot features a gamer who is so invested in the new game “Ryse: Son of Rome” that he starts to exhibit actual battle wounds.

Behind The Scenes of Kinka’s Pepsi Spot

If you watched football at all this weekend (and what red-blooded American didn’t?…. apologies to our foreign viewers… and next time I’ll specify ‘American Football’ or as we like to call it, ‘footy’) you saw Kinka Usher’s newest spot for Pepsi, “There Since The First Halftime.” It was a rare glimpse into the past as…

Agency Spy Takes Inside Look At “Jess Time”

Jess Gonchor’s Inside Llewyn Davis Wins Big At Gotham

Inside Llewyn Davis scored the gold at the 23rd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on Monday night.
