English Description
H&R Block is the largest tax preparer in the world. Our objective for this spot was two-fold. First, we needed to let people know that the company provides online services for people who want to file their own taxes. Secondly, we needed to highlight the fact that H&R Block’s tax software is the best available online and will help people get a bigger tax return. Most people who file their own taxes don’t do a good job of it.

In this spot we show how not having the best tools makes it harder to do a job well. We show a crew of construction workers attempting to demolish a derelict building by swinging a giant toy bunny rabbit (rather than a wrecking ball) at it from a crane. We set this up in a New York street and filmed the reactions of real members of the public who were passing by and who were able to witness the wrong tool doing a bad job. The outtake of the spot is that to do a job well, you need the right tools and that H&R Block provides the best tools for people filing their own taxes online.
