As tributes flood in for the 68-year-old British director, Tony Scott, who died on Sunday, Campaign takes a look at the commercials he directed during a distinguished career.
Scott began his career at older brother Ridley Scott's TV advertising production company, Ridley Scott Associates (RSA), directing ads for brands such as Barclays, Marlboro cigarettes and BMW.
After working in TV advertising for 10 years focusing on "girls, jeans and 'rock n roll' during what was a wild period in advertising" as Scott described it in an interview in 2010, he later turned his hand to directing films like his brother, and was behind such Hollywood blockbusters as 'Top Gun' and 'Days of Thunder'.
He is understood to have taken his own life over the weekend near his home in Los Angeles in the US. His wife and two sons survive him.
Here we take a look at some of his most memorable ads. Read Campaign magazine on Thursday for a full tribute.
