There are times when you can see true storytelling being presented in advertisements. These are more than just advertisements for a product. They are stories filled with emotions and characters, which are conveyed in such a short time that it is to be admired. For that reason I decided to create a series to post these adverts when I discover them.
It’s been a while since I’ve written an awesome advert post. So it feels appropriate that I return back to one of the first posts by putting up another advertisement directed by David Fincher. This one is for Heineken and it stars frequent Fincher collaborator Brad Pitt. Pitt plays himself alone in his home. He wants a Heineken but is all out. So he must begin an epic quest to get his hands on the beer from Holland.
Watch him quest.
Now granted this one doesn’t have the virtuoso storytelling present in Fincher’s Nike Fate advert, it is incredibly impressive in it’s scope.
I mean, c’mon. That was a lot of paparazzi.
