US Creative Work of the Week: Mistress and a puzzle solving hamster

Layton's Mystery Journey

Animated hamsters seem to be popular in advertising, which is why a furry, puzzle solving rodent was voted this week's US Creative Work of the Week by our readers.

In the spot by Mistress for Level 5 Abby, a woman is seen playing Layton's Mystery Game on her mobile device. She puts the device down and walks away for a minute. The hamster crawls onto the couch and solves the puzzle, then scurries away before the woman can figure out what happened.

The production required live-action, 3D animation and special effects, and the campaign went out globally in four languages online and on television.
