House of Cards for Shelter, agency: Leo Burnett, production company: Outsider, director: Dom & Nic

Turning serious now, here is Leo Burnett’s new campaign for homeless charity Shelter, directed by Dom & Nic and set to a soundtrack of Radiohead’s track Videotape. This ad marks the first occasion that the band have allowed their music to be used in a commercial.
