Yep, he’s back. After a triumphant premiere this spring (prompting a herculean leap in StubHub sales and a feature story in the Wall Street Journal), the oddly loveable, endearingly terrifying Ticket Oak returns and, this time, he’s doling out primo football tickets. Watch for him all over ESPN as well as Saturday Night Live, Monday Night Football, The Tonight Show and more. And while the spot’s pretty weird, it’s about to get a whole lot weirder. Stay tuned.

Adweek likes it.

Great tickets don’t grow on trees. Or do they? Enter The Ticket Oak, the 30-foot centerpiece and star of the latest integrated campaign from StubHub. You want sweet seats to sold-out shows or a Price Alert deal for Saturday’s game? The gregarious Ticket Oak provides. And if you don’t happen to have a Ticket Oak? Then StubHub’s the next best thing (like you couldn’t see that coming).

Brought to life entirely practically — no CGI here — by the puppeteers at Anatomorphex and shot lovingly by acclaimed director, Mike Maguire, the Ticket Oak makes his television debut during this year’s March Madness. But expect to see him very soon in print, digital, mobile and social media everywhere. Watch this space for more details.
