GALLERY 05: Pilsner Urquell - Burglar, Refrigerator

When Pilsner Urquell wanted a classy ad with high production qualities, its ad agency looked no further than Frederic Planchon. Having trawled the history books for inventions from the 1840s, Legas Delaney followed Planchon to Sicily and Hungary to shoot the ads. Fridge was filmed in a warehouse fridge with temperatures as low as minus 20 deg C. Planchon was keen to be involved at the start of the campaign and made the most of his contacts. A fantastic art director - and even the lead actors were French.
