David Fincher for Nike.

Director David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en, The Game) teamed up with Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men) for a Nike Football (American football) ad that lives up to its billing. The ad is simply titled, Fate.

The cherry on top for me is the fact that the music is a remix of Ennio Morricone’s “Ecstasy of Gold” (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, aka the best movie ever made and my favourite soundtrack to draw to).

    every shot one is moving left to right and the other is moving right to left – constantly building visual tension. even when the kid is sitting learning from the coach the camera pan has him moving left to right. brilliant.

    yah this is so tight…i didn’t really get it first watch until the end, so watching it a second time was cool

    Yeah the movement of the camera (left to right vs right to left) creates a sort of tension for both sides to inevitably meet in the end. Awesome.
