Burt's Bees Stages Classic Works of Literature in Six-Second Vines

Minus a few plot points


Burt's Bees doesn't exactly balm in its debut on Vine, but the effort isn't da balm, either.

The brand riffs on classic literature in animated "adaptations" of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Little Women, with more to come, all created by ad agency Baldwin&. Burt's products stand in for the characters and key story elements. For example, a foot-cream tube and a hand-salve tin—the latter with tentacles—play the Nautilus submarine and giant squid, respectively, in the 20,000 Leagues clip.
