    Hi. I still love this spot.

    I directed this commercial for Audi and BBH London a couple of years ago. I also came up with all the illusions and did the matte paintings based on studying Escher and textbook illusions. I wanted to bring it up to date. So I’m very proud that so many people appreciated the spot. It seems to have an underground following.

    There is also a very secret 60sec version out there in the vaults.

  25. UNspokeN says:

    not really escher….but escher-like. in fact it’s a variation of sandro del prete’s folded chessboard, sandro does escher-like paintings that are really worth checking out.trompe_del-prete.jpg
