We are finally privileged to see Ridley Scott’s successor to “1984.” The iconic spot that changed the Super Bowl forever. This new one on behalf of LG, is titled “The Man from the Future.” Featuring Liam Neeson and his son who’s wearing what appears to be a Lady GaGa wig, talking shit in a bar while his dad does card tricks, then they do a heavily CGI’d motor bike chase through a “Tron” set, all backed by moody music. It’s a complete and total shameful fucking mess. Obviously, everyone involved did it for the money, even though they’re all richer than Croesus. But then again, it’s a perfect demonstration of what’s wrong with the ad biz today! My good mate, Steve Haydon, must be on his third martini by now. I’m standing by for all the bullshit about the “Buzz” it’s creating… What a load of bollocks!
Er... Or, something like that!
