RETAIL AND HOME SHOPPING 04: Finnish Post Office - Envelope, Vacuum

New directors Zak & Dan have taken a filmic approach to the unlikeliest of clients, the Finnish Post Office. References for 'Envelope' range from 1984 to Charlie Chaplin, while 'Vacuuming' is a spoof of horror and alien blockbusters. The mood of the campaign aims to show the modern face of the client by depicting archaic practices. The pair have added intrigue to these rather straightforward scripts by creating a dark, Kafkaesque ambience.
