For its "Unhate" campaign, the fashion retailer Benetton mocked up face-sucking scenarios between U.S. Prez Barack Obama and China’s Supreme Leader Hu Jintao and the Pope and a prominent Imam (among others). The campaign was created by 72andSunny.

Activision and 72andSunny created a live action extravaganza with starring Jonah Hill and Sam Worthington in an attempt to beat last year’s record-breaking sales of Black Ops.

Guy Ritchie directed a short film as part of a global campaign for the European Championships created by 72andSunny for Nike.

With cheeky fake blurbs, this mock campaign -- created for Fast Company's Rebranding Girls feature--appeals to would-be dads by hyping baby girls as the "high-performance" child. The downloadable configurator app borrows from popular high-performance automobile apps. Your girl as a souped-up Mustang--that's an equation a guy can love.

This is the company who brought you K-Swiss sneakers "sponsored by" Kenny Powers.

FOR WINNING AT THE INTERSECTION OF HOLLYWOOD AND MADISON AVENUE

Any hot ad shop can win awards—but how about papal condemnation? 72andSunny provoked a furor when it put His Holiness in a lip-lock with grand sheikh Mohamed Ahmed al-Tayeb for a Benetton campaign. The aim is to get clients in a cultural conversation, says partner Matt Jarvis—no matter what. The Los Angeles-based agency turned K-Swiss shoes into must-haves with its use of Kenny Powers, Danny McBride's Eastbound and Down character. The groundbreaking three-way between the HBO series, brand, and celebrity led to a reported 250% increase in K-Swiss's online sales. The campaign was so true to McBride's character that he and Eastbound cocreator Jody Hill recruited 72 writer Matt Heath to work on the show's third season.
