Gas Networks Ireland 'Once a Year'

Gas Network Ireland's safety campaign continues with the return of carbon monoxide awareness character Tommy McAnairey. The first spot scooped Best Animation at the Irish Animation Awards. However, Tommy’s livelier, more complex performance in this second commercial has allowed us to flex our animation arm even further, bringing the safety message home by better expressing the careful balance between his charming persona and darker side.
