GALLERY 14: Boots - Knockout

This ad is exceptional for the beauty category, which tends to produce wallpaper advertising - albeit beautiful to look at. It's a brave script and full marks to the client for giving it the all-clear. The script is brilliantly executed by Carty, who manages to capture realistic, credible performances using clever methods. None of the actors knew the script and their expressions of bewilderment were achieved by asking them a series of cheeky questions.
