Timely intel.

by Andrew MacGregor


thetrainline.com: “Chase” - 40s

BBH and Blink's Pedro Martin-Calero craft a mini spy thriller for online journey planner Trainline. With national security at stake, this spook chases her target through a crowded train station.

Just when it looks like a failed mission, a friendly passenger puts MI6 to shame with live platform information and departure times.

It's a fun pursuit with a wry pay-off; few would deem "predictable" to be a positive attribute, but the brand own it here. Amidst fare hikes and staff strikes, at least there's something that embattled rail commuters can rely upon.
