Garagista - "The Hipster Hijacking" (2014) 1:50 (South Africa)

South African hipsters ripping off a beer truck because it is "Limited edition." Too fun. I love the fixies that make an appearance. Not to mention the one in the skinny jeans who is so skinny he is hiding behind a pole.

Act II Popcorn "Not just for movies any more" (2014) :44 (South Africa)

Well the title of the spot gives the punchline away but it still got me to chuckle. Casted well. Also, nice touch with Russian VO.

Bell's - The Reader - (2014) 2:00 (South Africa)

While the first two scenes reveal where the story is heading, watching it unfold is still an enjoyable journey. Bell's is for a "true Man of Character", and this old gentleman spends a long time learning how to read. He plays scrabble. He practices his ABC's.

Johnnie Walker Keep Walking - Strider - (2013) (South Africa)

Johnnie Walker Keep Walking - Strider - (2013) (South Africa)

As a smartly dressed man walks through iconic South African landmarks like Ellis Park and Vilakazi Street, memories, achievements and ghosts of yesteryear, appear as a reminder to the nation of the times the country has made the world sit up and take notice in the past. Some of these places may not ring a bell to non South Africans, but we can still appreciate the look created by Kim who worked with BlackGinger and DOP Paul Gilpin to do this. To create images that had a photographic long exposure field, they shot multiple passes of the same thing at a very high frame rate. This allowed BlackGinger to fade up and reduce the opacity of each and every person, while the strider remains solid throughout the ad.
