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).
