I went to the cinema last night to see Salt. I always enjoy getting there early to see the previews but not necessarily the ads.
Until last night.
An ad came on which promised to tell the true story of a man who walked around the world. Over 5 minutes later the ad finished and the whole cinema was in silence, which is so rare during a commercial.
The ad was for Johnnie Walker Scotch.
I am happy to crown this the greatest commercial of all time for all different reasons. From the actor (Robert Carlyle) to the setting to the absolutely brilliant timings to the story told.
Being a non drinker, it almost worked. I almost bought a bottle of Johnnie Walker.
Here it is. Enjoy!
What do you think? Is it the best ad you have ever seen? If not, what is?
