It happens once a year that people across the U.S. suffer through a painfully boring football game to enjoy the creative genius of the advertising world. The Super Bowl seems to mark the single day when we acknowledge the creative possibility and potential of advertising.
In the early 2000s BMW hit advertising/promotional gold with a series of short, highly entertaining action films staring Clive Owen. The series titled The Hire stuffed a two-hour summertime blockbuster worth of laughs and action into the roughly ten minute shorts.
While these flicks are far from new, if it has been a while, they deserve a re-watch. Enjoy.
