In this spot for Capital One, director duo Dan & Jason gamify the world of financial assistance. Using a mix of live action and 2D animation, the idea is that: in gaming, the pause function can be a literal game-saver. So, why can't it be the same for your finances? Introducing Eno from Capital One—the automated assistant that looks out for charges that might surprise you and helps you fix them. Incorporating a multi-layered approach—with the Twitch interface, medieval mythology, old-school arcade graphics, and deadpan humor—Dan & Jason prove that what's in their wallet is effectively a directorial cheat code.
