Uniqlo "UV Cut" (Director's cut) 2012 :30 Japan

Renowned fashion and beauty director Rebecca Blake, of Rebecca Blake Films A STORY Company, has directed a new campaign for Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo launching its innovative UV Cut collection. Conceived by Dentsu, Tokyo, the spot features Japanese model and actress Kiko Mizuhara (Norwegian Wood) who is shown wearing the young, fashionable clothing, which filters UV rays, in a stylized contemporary home overlooking a pristine ocean under a sunny sky.
The spot was shot on 35mm film and is notable for Blake’s innovative use of lighting and graphic design. Interior sequences employ a striking, angular pattern of light and shadow offering a subtle contrast to the geometry of the room. The effect was produced with a specially-designed lighting rig by cinematographer Deke Donelian.

Adidas - Sky Comic - (2010) :60

TBWA\HAKUHODO and adidas Japan, in preparation for the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, launched the next phase of World Cup activities with “adidas Sky Comic” project. The project, which spans 13 cities over five weeks, is a creation of 13 massive 300 square meter individual comic strip panels that are painted by football fans and national team supporters from all over Japan. A camera rigged to a remote controlled balloon is then taken up and the individual panels are photographed from the sky and uploaded to a dedicated adidas and JFA website (www.adidas.co.jp/JFA) where the entire story comes together as a digital comic book (www.adidas.co.jp/JFA/skycomic).

In an unusually subdued Japanese advert, the only crazy thing going on here is Brad Pitt's superhuman strength. Them guns aren't just for show.

ThreeBond glue - Bond your sparks - (2009) :45 (Japan)

What this guy does with some bonding glue is brilliant, though I will admit that the moment that knife touched the vinyl I had a minor heart attack. Ouch.
I&S BBDO, Tokyo , you are scary geniuses, I bow to you.

Now, I'd really like to buy a pre-cut-and-glued album that looks like that (because I am too weak to dare a knife to my vinyl). Get on it!
