As the 2014 Super Bowl approaches, David Lee the chief creative of website design and publishing service Squarespace, collaborated with director Malcolm Venville in creating their first teaser for a Super Bowl ad called A Better Web Awaits.

The title is a perfect way for Squarespace to publicize their services in helping clients to create custom tailored websites. The teaser was inspired by the World Wide Web, showing it in a completely new light -- surreal, dark and extremely disturbing. The teaser features bizarre and grotesque storefronts and whimsical, circus-like individuals. In the teaser ad, we see an adult carrying a child, but with their faces exchanged, men with neon signs that say “Your Funny Words Here,” “Hot Local Singles,” “Download Now” and “Epic Fails,” while a man walks into a transparent storefront.
