Mr. Lube – “The Competition” Video Production by Red+Ripley Team in 5k!

The Need for a Video

A test spot for Karacters (a division of DDB) to demonstrate situational comedy.

“Maybe it’s time for Service you trust.”


We rented a local garage and Scot Proudfoot and Julian Kenchenten did their best auto mechanic impressions. Although the final corporate video production was not picked up for airtime, it received great reviews.

The Client

At Mr. Lube they offer fast, warranty-approved maintenance to help extend the life of your vehicle. And you don’t even have to book an appointment to get them.

In 2006, after the untimely passing of Ted Ticknor, former CEO & President of Mr. Lube Canada, Mr. Lube joined the fight against prostate cancer. Their participation began with support of the Vancouver Prostate Centre at VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, and soon extended to sponsoring Vancouver’s Tournament for Life.
