GALLERY 26: Topdanmark - Lucky Cigarette Smoker

Topdanmark avoids the usual shock tactics of insurance companies. Instead of displaying scenes of panic, Robert/Boisen opts for a more subtle approach, presenting us with a scene of tranquility with our protagonist relaxing to the sound of opera music. A potentially dangerous situation unfolds as he falls asleep with a lit cigarette. Disaster is avoided very simply however, thanks to a coffee cup, alluding to the equally easy manner with which the insurance company deals with any outcome, lucky or otherwise.
