GALLERY 12: Cannes Contenders - Saturn

We waited with bated breath to see whether Goodby Silverstein would revolutionise the car category and, with this powerful new campaign for Saturn, it does not disappoint. For a start, there are no cars in it. As the clever strapline states, it's about the people, not the sheet metal. It's a strong idea and an original execution, which somehow manages to be both amusing and moving. It's the kind of spot you can't take your eyes off and is surely an award-winner.
