Grandmother Gets Killed Over and Over in Ad for Job Site Stop torturing the woman!

People who are unhappy in their jobs are perhaps more open than most to gallows humor—and that's what Draftfcb Argentina delivers in spades in this humorous new spot for Zonajobs. The ad shows a grandmother being killed repeatedly, in all sorts of nasty ways, and each time rising from the grave. By the end, we understand what's happening—and it's only going to stop when you get a better job. It's excellently shot—the exploding car is a particularly nice touch. Draftfcb tells us the actress is indeed 90 years old, but still had to be told to act like an old woman. Apparently, she was overly spry.
