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).

  • MAN, this ad is soo dope. I had to watch it a 2nd time to get what was going on; really cool how they intertwined two boys lives togeather, one offence and one defence, and then they finally met up haha pretty awesome! yea sick sick concept, visuals – overall DOPE

  • haha just saw your second part for the blog post… MAN yea the song sounded hella familar!! G.B.U. SO DOPE !!!

  • 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.

  • Pretty damn amazing what can be done in a minute long video! I need to watch Seven again.

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

  • sAkSeNaKeL

    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.

  • dan

  • great find.
    i just kept waiting for jay z to start rapping (he has a song the samples it if anybody wasn’t aware… good song to)

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
