Sheer Pornography

Sunday 6th May 2007

This is a video clip of an advert from Shell. It cost about £2 million apparently, making it one of the most expensive adverts ever. Worth every penny, if you ask me.

The best thing is the sound – theres a reason I like Ferrari more than almost any other car manufacturer or racing team, and part of that reason is that their cars always sound exactly right. The bit of the film where it switches to the modern car (F310, I think?) is the best bit, I think – no matter how foul a mood I’m in, that part of the film always makes me smile for some reason. Sends shivers down yer spine.

One sad thing though – apparently, the filmmakers wanted to film part of it in London. The reason why they didn’t? “Health and Safety” concerns. Sigh.
