What's curious, the only men in this work group is responsible for contacts with the client- a job that is usually done by women. Orange and Comunica +A switched a common division of roles.
This spot was launched in summer of 2008 and was filmed in Bolonia's beaches (Cadiz) during three days. 400 extras, 20 models and a helicopter were needed. Spot's music is a rock version of a popular song "Un elefante se balanceaba".

Piece: Spot "Fusión" (40" y 30")
This spot was filmed in Quisco and Laguna Verde beaches and in Intercomunal Park (Chile).
Here creative director and copy are both women, although in full credits appear some new names. This proves that women are not only able to create brilliant advertising campaigns, but they are considered good creatives as well.
I wonder now: do you notice any female influence watching these spots?
It's difficult to prove if a man could have created a similar concept. However, it's visible that this spots reinforces the idea of friendship and community and these ideas are usually valued higher by women than by men.
