Ad of the Day – March 14 (London)


There seems to be a trend going on with cold weather and shoots in Northern Europe. This is another example of pure genius when it comes to angles to tell a story.

All of a sudden it’s a “bro” booze ad, and it loses 90% of its power. Listen to it again and realize how epic this track is, how it shapes the narrative perfectly…
