Burberry: Night Creatures commercial

Category: Commercials; Entrant: Riff Raff Films

Megaforce’s film for Burberry is the latest in a series of collaborations between the fashion brand and the directing collective, in which Burberry-wearing protagonists set out on unexpected adventures.

Whereas the previous ads have had a focus on the freedom and joy of nature, this spot is set in the city and has a science-fiction component as a faceless, many-legged creature intercepts a London bus and takes our heroes on a dance through the streets of London. The direction by Megaforce has also received an honourable mention in this year’s Annual Awards.
