The ads stand out because they feature one character playing two different roles at the same time.

Although playing two roles in the same shot may seem challenging, it’s actually easier than it appears. It might slow down production, but if done right, it can be a fun process.

In one ad, the camera remained in one position while the character changed positions for the two roles. The two shots were layered on top of each other in the edit, with the top shot cropped.

In the other ad, the character was filmed in front of a green screen as the guide, with the waster role played in front of a mirror with the green screen as the background. The green screen was then replaced with the background for the guide character. The final shot replaced the green screen in front of the waster with the keyed shot.
