GALLERY 17: Aristoc - Bum Note

Aristoc's last ad was original, stylish and award-winning and may have proved a tough act to follow for its agency. But here, Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy has equalled, if not topped, its previous work. Beautifully shot once again by Thwaites, the ad is themed around film motifs. This is not only a stylistic device, but also an attempt to appeal to the target audience of cinema-goers. The chosen theme, music, wittily portrays the strapline. But playing out of tune proved tricky for these professional musicians who managed to make even bum notes sound harmonious.
