This evening I was watching TV and fiddling on my computer, passing time, not doing anything important. The show that we were watching went to a commercial break, but I wasn’t paying much attention. I happened to glance up from my laptop, and for the next three and a half minutes I sat mesmerized, staring at the TV.
What played was a commercial, but it was no commercial like I’ve seen before. Many advertisements are funny, dull, or interesting, factual, possibly intriguing, but not this one. This one was beautiful.
It was an advert for Cartier, a jewelry and watch company. They also have another site detailing about their commercial/short film and giving details about their roots and background. I think Cartier was wise to call this a film, because it is so much more than a normal advertisement. Here’s the video for you all to enjoy.
