Thinking about how I wanna help your brand grow ๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I know some of my followers are gamers ๐ŸŽฎ Here's a commercial I made for Capital One to highlight their Twitch partnership and market their AI-powered assistant, Eno. I've never fought for anything in my life as much as I fought to keep the backpack imp who pops up and sings, "EEEENOOO, FROM CAPITAL ONE!" Humble brag: so far this ad's been viewed 14M+ times with 90% of viewers watching the whole thing to completion. Say whaaaat?

Love my fans, you always send me the sweetest things ๐Ÿฅฐ dreamers never wake up โœจ

You know what's cool? Reflecting what real life looks like in your work. Rejecting heteronormativity. Chipping away at the patriarchy. Doing something, anything, to help create a more inclusive present for everyone. So I wrote this script and led a team in creating this ad to do just that. It's small, but I hope it helps.


I've been dyyying to show you this content that I made for a popular streaming service that people "chill" with ๐Ÿ˜ Unfortunately, the NDA I signed says I could face a penalty of up to $2,500,000 for violating the terms of the agreement. So if you want to see it, you know what to do...

Where my sports fans at? ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ† Under Armour asked me to make a song for this campaign with Cam Newton, so I co-wrote and recorded this ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป I can do a lot more than just write and creative direct ads!

POV: you're in a Zoom meeting with me

Caring about others is hot, and using your skills for good is even hotter. Here's a video I made pro bono for Communities in Schools, a nonprofit that provides social workers for at-risk youth to help them succeed in school despite having incredibly rocky lives outside of the classroom. Real talk for a moment: if you have a worthy cause and want help getting the story out (for free), let me know. Always down to help, it's some of the most meaningful work I do.

America's biggest celebrities love my work ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป like longtime fan William Hung from season 1 of American Idol! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽค

One of the crowning achievements of my career is getting a Fortune 100 company to release an ad telling people to stop doing laundry and freeze their clothes instead. "Be the change you want to see in the world" -Gandhi โœจ

Who likes MONSTER TRUCKS?! I interned on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien while I was a student at UCLA, and when the writers went on strike I pitched a segment where world famous monster truck Grave Digger crushes the world's largest pumpkin. I was 20, and it's been downhill ever since.

The work I do for my current employer is amazing โ€” thanks for noticing, Grammy nominated recording artist Jake Owen! ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ†

#tbt to probably my earliest student work for now disgraced Chinese smartphone manufacturer/spyware enthusiast @Huawei! I wanted to cut the crap and speak to the real reason you'd want a waterproof phone โ€” so you can stop worrying about how often you drop your phone between your legs when you're on the can! I've grown up a lot since those days. Look how far I've come โ€” I'm on OnlyBrens now!

Some of my followers have been asking for more straight up informational web content, and I'm happy to oblige โ˜บ๏ธ Content doesn't always have to be whacky and zany! Sometimes a little brand voice slapped onto an animated video is what the doctor orders ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ

Sometimes I pretend I'm a country music hunk like NHL star turned country crooner Chad Brownlee, even though I grew up in SoCal and I'm not, like, super into generic radio country music ๐Ÿคญ Can you spot younger not-yet-bald me in this music video? The catering at this shoot included a massive build-your-own breakfast burrito bar, which I still think about often.


Another #tbt to when @ConanOBrien and I read Cosmopolitan Magazine together for a skit. Just a couple of bros reading Cosmo together, nothing weird here!

How do you do, fellow kids? Aren't you too young to be on OnlyBrens? Don't worry, I won't tell your parents โ€” that would be "sus". Anyways, uh, school sucks! Here's a tip to help you sleep through class. It really works, no cap. Also, uhhh sign up for our credit card. Vibe check! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป


Thanks so much everyone who asked questions during my AMA! One of my followers asked what my most prized possession is, so I decided to show you ๐Ÿ‘€ It's my super basic IKEA chair that Janet Jackson sat on once and subsequently signed for me! Love you Janet, call me back sometime, let's do lunch ๐Ÿ˜˜


Oooh, shiny! My art director Ben Frick and I were creative leads for Capital One's entire Pride branding in 2018, which included top billing partnerships at NYC and DC Pride events as well as these crazy bank takeovers. We wanted to create a pride campaign that was inclusive of the BIPOC community, so we led with "color" in the copy and directly addressed BIPOC inclusion elsewhere in our campaign. Fuck yeah, inclusivity! ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€โšง๏ธ

Speaking of Pride events, this line was an absolute HIT. People posted pictures of themselves with it on Instagram and one even literally said "Capital One has bomb ass marketing". DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO GET PEOPLE TO SAY THAT A CREDIT CARD COMPANY HAS BOMB ASS MARKETING?! ๐Ÿ†

Want to work with me? Yay! IT WORKED! It worked, y'all. The OnlyBrens thing worked. I can't wait to tell my mom. You were wrong, mom! Bren 1, Mom 0!
