Creatively devised by FCB and directed by Rattling Stick’s Misko Iho, the new campaign from the allergy relief brand employs some iconic monster movie tropes to prove that things don’t need to be so scary. 

To showcase how Flonase can protect people from even the most terrifying of symptoms, FCB called on The Embassy to craft some truly monstrous creatures. Engaged early in the process, The Embassy team provided insight and expertise on all aspects of the production and post-production. 

The blockbuster-worthy spots follow two beasts wreaking havoc on terrified inhabitants of a city as we see a gigantic tentacled flower and behemoth grass monster leave citizens running for their lives amidst crushed cars, screaming bystanders, and demolished parks. 

A truly global project, the campaign saw The Embassy’s Vancouver and Los Angeles offices come together with the agency team in New York, a shoot in South Africa, and a director based in Finland.
