Those H&R Tax Folks Really Know How to Spot Them

Australian Ad Uncovers Some Strange Specimens

Published on

Editor's Pick

Now here's an interesting tax preparation ad. H&R Block Australia takes a creative approach to promoting the talent of its accounting specialists with this new camouflage-themed commercial created out of Aussie agency Joy and directed by Revolver's Matt Devine of The Glue Society. A businessman stands on a desolated city street, his mere presence summoning some interesting creatures to emerge miraculously from the urban landscape -- suggesting how astute H&R staffers are in pinpointing hard-to-spot details.

The ad is the latest to co-opt the techniques of camouflage artist Liu Bolin, known for cloaking the human figure in the most unexpected places.
