I do not condone defacing property… in fact, seeing it done brings the crazy, right-winged, (redundant, I know) personality-I-prefer-to-pretend-doesn’t-exist out of me. However, when I find street art done WELL in an appropriate spot, I am not only impressed but I egg it on.
Case in point:
And this wonky-eyed view is actually painted on a construction barricade in Paris.
Louis Vuitton, the quintessential luxury house announced that it is launching its first ever on-screen corporate campaign with the launch of a 90-second spot for Louis Vuitton to appear on television and in movie theaters starting Feb. 15 in some 15 countries.
Shot in France, Spain, India and Japan, the travel-themed ad entitled, ‘Where will life take you?’ is artsy, even dreamlike with only fleeting glimpses of leather goods and a soundtrack of stirring guitar music. And unlike Louis Vuitton’s print ads that usually feature celebrities, the commercial shows misty and sun-dappled images of ordinary people in exotic locales as questions like ‘What is a journey?’ flash on the screen.
Although the majority of the movie theater I was in laughed once the commercial ended, I loved it! As a LV owner and fan, I felt connected to the brand again in a way that Kanye West and Jessica Simpson just wouldn’t understand… thankfully.
What do you think?
So next year marks the 120th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. To celebrate, the tower will be adorned with a gigantic webbed Kevlar observation deck on top designed by Serero.
I bet Tom Cruise is bummed he didn’t hold out until the mother-ship was constructed to propose to Katie Holmes.
