Advert: Samsung Smart TV – Charge
Music: Kill It Kid – Run
This Samsung Smart TV ad is a mini blockbuster, featuring a stampede of Roman Centurions, cheerleaders, cowboys, wolves, GIs, Maori warriors, American footballers, beach buggies, police cars, helicopters – and a huge T-Rex – all charging towards a TV viewer. The ad, from creative agency CHI & Partners, was filmed on Bethells Beach in New Zealand and directed by Romain Gavras for the Somesuch&co production company. The soundtrack is provided by Kill It Kid, a bluesy rock band from Bath fronted by Chris Turpin and Stephanie Ward. The track is called Run, from the 2011 album Feet Fall Heavy, and it’s available to download from iTunes.
