A tearjerking whisky advert created by two film students could be the most powerful ever made.
Johnnie Walker: Dear Brother
This advert, created by two film students on behalf of Johnnie Walker, has been applauded as one of the most powerful whisky commercials made.
The spec commercial, created by German students Dorian Lebherz and Daniel Titz, has drawn such wide critical acclaim that it’s raked up over three million YouTube views in one week.
Entitled ‘Dear Brother’, the advert follows the journey of two brothers through a desolate Scottish landscape toward a poignant, heart-wrenching realisation.
The two Film Academy of Baden-Württemberg students, whose work under the Dorian & Daniel banner includes further spec work for Nivea and Mustang, created the Johnnie Walker advert based on the brand’s enduring ‘Keep Walking’ campaign.
