Andy Azula, I Actually Like Your Latest Whiteboard Commercial


I've always been surprised by how much traffic my "Andy Azula - The Artist in the UPS ‘Whiteboard’ Commercials" blog post continues to drive. It's quite apparent that Andy Azula and his UPS commercials are quite polarizing. The commercials are now a year old and, for the most part, I find them remarkably annoying.

But like my surprising switch on ESPN.com's new Beta, I suppose I am able and allowed to switch my opinion of Andy Azula... I really like the latest commercial (embedded below). I am not sure how they do it, but the mixture of drawing to animation is seamless and really captures the point that UPS is trying to convey.

By the way - I also love the UPS video player. Very creative and well themed.
