The law of the vital few: Twenty's treatise on 'the science of persuasion'

As the Agency Wank Tumblr shows, agencies trying to elucidate their point of difference can easily veer into cringeworthy business cliches and terrible jargon (Canadian agency John St, on the other hand, has consistently nailed it with brilliant films that mock current advertising trends).

The animated film was written by Darryl Wong, directed by ex-creative director Kenton Osmond and his recent replacement Jason Hall, and produced by Barry Cumming in-house.
