Love Johnnie Walker and the way they presented this commercial. However, it sparked quite a bit of controversey on Adweek, causing Andy DiLallo, chief creative officer at Leo Burnett Sydney to respond with "his side of the story".
The accusation was that the creative concept and writing for this piece was lifted directly from W+K Old Spice Man your man could smell like commercials. While I am sure there was some inspiration from it, I definitely didn't think this was any kind of plagiarism or unethical style stealing. Makes me think of George Clooney, Oceans 11, and being ominously powerful.
And while your in the mood for Johnnie Walker, check out this much longer, but epic, 6 minute commercial on the story behind Johnnie Walker. Delivered perfectly, from cinematography, to location, to casting, to writing. Boom
