GALLERY 21: Sunday Times - Rugby, Football, F1

Director Johnny Maginn mirrors the style of sports journalism so convincingly that we are fooled into thinking these interviews are real. So when the punchline comes, it manages to both surprise and amuse. The ads play on sporting and cultural stereotypes, so we see a far from eloquent rugby player, an uptight German footballer and a lecherous Italian Formula One driver. In a bid to aid authenticity, Maginn has paid careful attention to detail, which included creating logos for fictional sponsors.
