Mindblowing Volvo commercial


We'll be posting photos of our house makeover today, but meanwhile, I wanted to share this ridiculously awesome Volvo commercial. It was filmed in Spain at sunrise in one take. Have you seen it? Insane.

So bizarre. I would have never thought of that to advertise precision of a car's steering wheel but I guess it makes sense!

I LOVE this! Jean Claude Van Damme is a man with a very special kind of body intelligence. It's quite inspiring, actually! Thanks for sharing!

I used to teach business at an ad agency in Argentina. Geeking out over ads with artistic directors was the highlight of the job!!!!

Rebecca said...

Posted it this morning. The stillness and balance that you feel from watching it was meditative in itself. Insane is a perfect description.

I think it's safe to say Mr. Van Damme is a bad ass.

I work in advertising; I'm a creative copywriter.
And, as we always say when something is really amazing, "I just wish I had thought of this first."
