Google+ launches first TV ad

Adam & Eve's launch spot for Google+ breaks tomorrow (31 March) in 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The 90-second commercial, called ''Google+: Tom", centres around Benedict Cumberbatch reading 'The Seven Ages of Man', from 'As You Like It' by William Shakespeare.

It follows the life of Tom, an everyman, as he lives and shares on the Google+ platform.

Ben Priest, Adam & Eve's creative founding partner, said: "It's a real honour to be working with Google on such an important launch. We wanted to bring warmth and humanity to this platform. To show people how it allows you to share what's important with those you love."

The ad was written by Aidan McLure, Laurent Simon, Beth Bentley and Alex Heisz. It was directed by Simon Ellis of Mad Cow films.
