SunRun Ad Is Delightfully Upbeat, and You Can Be Too If You Use Solar Energy Cutwater's stop-motion spot

All the electrical products in your house will start doing Busby Berkeley routines once you sign up with solar power company SunRun.

Cutwater in San Francisco crafted the stop-motion ad below with help from Australian animator Dropbear (aka Jonathan Chong), the creative force behind the music video for Hudson and Troop's "Against the Grain." It's funny that an environmentally friendly company like SunRun would tap an animator who wasted so many pencils (don't we need pencils?!), but such is life. 

All of the animation was done by hand, and it took the team roughly a month to complete the 30-second spot.
