Gallery 03: Siemens Xelibri - Face of the Future

Mother has abandoned the techno-obsessed approach of most mobile phone brands in favour of something much more original - an ironic glimpse into the future. The first company to treat mobiles like fashion accessories, the ad positions Xelibri as 'so tomorrow' - a nod to stock fashion phrases such as 'that's so last year!' - but without the earnest overtones. Impressive post-production from MPC has resulted in everyone having the same face - whether male, female, fat or thin. Spooky, amusing and most definitely Traktor-esque.
