Orbit's new viral ad campaign features Chicago street artist 'Goons'

Orbit’s new viral ad ( which debuted last month) features  local street artist ‘Goons’:

Stemming from a line of generally well-received “Dirty Mouth? Clean it up!” TV commercials for Orbit, Wrigley has embraced artistic simplicity and quaint design for its latest viral video experiment. The stop-motion, 90 second spot includes no CG or rendering – all footage was captured with still cameras by hand to emphasize the artist’s homemade art style.

A New York Times piece states “if there is a positive response to the video, more could be produced”.  Well, the youtube video has over 1 million hits and the comments have been fairly positive, the most recent coming from daothaweaponx20:
