GALLERY 15: Cannes Contenders - Nike

These retro French-style mini-movies are strange, original and utterly bonkers. So it comes as no great surprise to find out that they are directed by the Kings of subversive comedy - Traktor. Filmed in 16mm rostrum camera to give a kitsch and organic feel, the spots feature a group of urban gymnasts - Le Parkour (David Belle, the founder starred in the recent BBC Rush Hour spot - see CS Issue 30). The ads are breathtaking, funny and a sure-fire winner with the target audience.
