GALLERY 06: Royal Marines - Tunnel

Ivan Zacharias gives us a brutal account of the Royal Marines' training programme - an ad so evocative it leaves you breathless. The viewer is dragged into a water tunnel to watch a recruit as he struggles through various stages of the course. We suffer with him, aided by the use of titles questioning where our limits would be. A clever new endline from Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R "99.99 per cent need not apply" throws down the gauntlet to a tiny minority who also have the guts and stamina to make it.
