Amusing Monday: ‘Angry Salmon’ wins ad award

March 28th, 2011 by cdunagan

Congratulations go to Visual Media Group and People for Puget Sound for a public service video featuring an “angry salmon” who traipses around Seattle’s waterfront and confronts people with their trash. The spot won a Silver Award at last week’s Addy Awards presentation in Seattle.

Last spring, the folks at VMG offered their services when People for Puget Sound wanted some kind of light educational piece for Earth Day. Everyone seemed to like the in-your-face salmon, played by standup comedian Dartanion London, so I’m bringing it back today while I’m on vacation.

The Addy Awards recognize excellence in creative advertising throughout Western Washington. Winners go on to compete with others throughout the Northwest. If successful, they enter a national competition.

For the story behind the production, check out Water Ways for April 26, 2010.
