Levi’s 501 – Procession
There was a time when you used to look out for the next Levi’s 501 spot. Here’s a blast from the past that is all about THE MOOD, baby. Shot on location at one of my favourite places in the whole wide world: New Orleans.
Director: Michael Haussman
Polaroid – Resignation
Superb visual storytelling from one of my favourite ad- and feature-film directors. Fantastic editing, music…and did I mention that the spot was in Japanese? Not that it matters 🙂
Director: Michel Gondry
Lexus ES – Cards
What do a world-record beating cardstacker and a luxury car have in common? More than you think. Meticulously orchestrated and flawlessly executed, this spot for the Lexus ES is a class-act. Although, I don’t much care for the old geezer who did the voice-over!
Agency: Team One
Director: Dante Ariola
British Airways – Musical Chairs
Usually I hate seeing cute, cuddly kids being used in ads. Unless it’s for something like the one below, for British Airways. A great piece of work from the good ol’ days with possibly the best casting I’ve ever seen in a TV spot.
Agency: M&C Saatchi
Director: Stuart Douglas
Nike Football – Leave Nothing
Somewhere between filming his stylish urban noirs Heat, Collateral and the more recent Public Enemies, director Michael Mann took a break to craft this jaw-droppingly awesome tour de force for the NFL’s opening season. The coolest thing about it? Oh the music’s fab, but the editing is classic.
Director: Michael Mann
