Tokyo Shines as Travel Destination in New Expedia Campaign Spots

A new integrated campaign for Expedia debuted across the U.S. from advertising agency 180LA. Featuring TV/online spots "No Excuses" (:30) and "Someplace New" (:15), both spots were directed by Cap Gun Collective director Tom Haines.

To entice viewers to seize the day and take the trips of their dreams, this campaign is set in and around Tokyo – including inside the city's iconic Robot Restaurant. There, robots and lasers dance to Grimes' "Genesis" track, and one bold young traveler has the time of her life experiencing new foods, meeting new people and even taking a turn at karaoke.
