When the Boston Children's Museum approached Hill Holliday about a new campaign targeting young families, the client described the benefits that kids get from visiting the institution like this: "It's like cheese sauce on the vegetables." That turned out to be the perfect springboard for this hilarious campaign that casts the everyday challenges of parenting as stealth missions--which, if you've ever had to watch a kid for more than an hour you'll totally relate to. The films, directed by Hill Holliday CD/CW Tim Cawley, cast Mom and Dad's everyday tricks to get kids brushing their teeth, eating their veggies or doing their homework as Mission Impossible-like challenges. Who knew parenting could be such an adrenaline rush?  

The films direct viewers to , which points them to the Boston Children's Museum site and invites other parents to Tweet their own tricks with the hashtag #secretparentagenda.
