The Colonie recently teamed with Burrell Communications to provide editorial, VFX and design services for ‘I Do,’ a broadcast spot introducing the 2017 Toyota Corolla. Creative editor, Bob Ackerman took the automaker’s tagline, ‘Let’s Go Places,’ and ran with it. Fast-paced cuts and editing effects helped create an upbeat message that celebrates the bold creativity of both the new Corolla, as well as its target audience - today's ‘on-the-go’ generation of young African Americans adults.
Lewis Williams, Chief Creative Officer at Burrell Communications, sat down with Melissa Thornley from Beyond The Spot to discuss the importance of creativity, humanity, and diversity in the advertising industry.

The first phase of the campaign is called “Our Black Boys,” and it focuses on the aspirations of a group of youngsters. The clip concludes on a somber note: these are things they’d like to accomplish “if they grow up.”
Trust us, these young boys will swallow your whole heart with what they have to say about their hopes and their very adult fears.
