Yeah, we know this is an advertisement for booze, but rarely is such an ad constructed so elegantly. Go for a stroll with actor Robert Carlyle as he narrates the story of Johnnie Walker in this beautifully shot and immaculately rehearsed single-take commercial.

    Yeah, it IS an advertisement for booze, but it’s a cracker; deceptively simple but very difficult to pull off. I wonder how many takes they did. I also wonder how they mounted the camera given how smoothly it preceeds him.

    Yep, we saw it at the movies last Sunday. I could only be amazed at the technical brilliance which went into making it and the sensitivity displayed.

    It has to be one of the best ads ever made.

    Congratulations to the people who made it.
