UK paint company Dulux has released a new TV spot where the world is a colorless environment that reminds me of some Orwellian future world. According to a study that Dulux commissioned, the United Kingdom is “sleepwalking into a colorless future, with color gradually draining out of all elements of life.” I don’t really see that, but it makes for a great ad.
BBH London and director Daniel Wolfe teamed up with London based Glassworks to produce the spot which in the behind the scenes videos you’ll see was a massive undertaking. The spot is really well produced and feels like the trailer to a Hollywood blockbuster. The behind the scenes stuff though is really fascinating, and sheds light on the production that went into making this all come together.
