TAYLORS OF HARROGATE WELCOME TO COFFEE

We are not sure if this is supposed to be the view underwater, in space, or on some hallucinogenic, and we are not quite sure what the connection is to coffee, but we don't really care as the visuals in this advert are simply cool.

BRING ON THE TRUMPETS

This is a bizarrely catchy advert that is inexplicably funny. You will find yourself chanting "Bring on the trumpets!" in even the most uncalled for situation.

COG HONDA

Beautiful to watch and so clever. The silence keeps the focus on the sequence and culminates with the electronic system and the song by Sugar Hill Gang“ Rapper’s Delight”. Isn't it nice when things just work?

THE GUARDIAN THREE LITTLE PIGS

Recreating the classic tale of “The Three little pigs”, turned into a thrilling story of research, conspiration and intrigue, it shows how the story would be told by modern jornalism and social media. It is just fantastic.
