Case Description

There are two versions of this television advertisement, a 15 second version and a 30 second version. Both versions of the advertisement feature an animated clown in an alleyway standing facing two children and opening his trench coat to reveal toys. A burger superhero appears and throws wooden sticks at the clown pinning him to the wall. He then jumps on a ladder hanging from a helicopter and flies away.
