Sony Bravia Glasgow ad goes live

Sony published their follow up to the San Francisco ‘Balls’ ad today. Filmed in Glasgow, the new ad features a tower block getting blasted with coloured paint. It’ll be shown on TV tonight, but you can see it online now at: http://www.bravia-advert.com/paint/thead/

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with the end result. When they were filming it all looked quite impressive, but it was a dull grey day and didn’t have anything like the intensity of the SF balls ad. I thought they might’ve had a plan to sort that out in post production, but evidently they didn’t. It was a bit of a shame really – we had a summer of brilliant blue skies and sunshine in Glasgow and they just happened to film on some of the dullest afternoons of the year.

I was there at the original filming of the ad back in July – here are some of my pics from the day…
