Here’s a new commercial from ad agency 180Amsterdam featuring soccer great Steven Gerrard trying to hit a clay pigeon with a soccer ball. There’s lot of debate online on whether or not this is real, which is precisely what the agency was hoping for, I’m sure. Advertising that gets noticed is great. Advertising that gets watched again and again and then discussed and argued about is flat out brilliant. In other words, in advertising terms, whether this is real or not is totally irrelevant.
As for me, I’ve watched it about 17 times and I’m pretty sure my opinion is right. But rather than influence you, I merely invite you to experience it yourself.
