It’s true what they say: Creativity is born out of constraints. So, in the spring of 2020 when our in-person video plans for the year came to a screeching halt, it was time for us to get creative. And what came from that? A brand new cartoon! Made for everyone! But, especially for marketers who believe in the power of using creativity to defeat their boring. In Gear Squad vs Dr. Boring, a sentient (and scrappy) group of video gear springs to life to save marketing from the evil … Dr. Boring and his super-boring accomplices.

From raining on their drip campaign to turning a live stream into a “dead stream,” the goons over at Dull Corp. will stop at nothing to make marketing boring. Can the Gear Squad save their campaigns? Guess you’ll just have to watch to find out.
