Top Spot of the Week: Nicolai Fuglsig Directs "The Chase" For Macy’s, BBDO NY
This :90 TV spot (and accompanying :30 version), created by Macy’s and new creative agency partner, BBDO New York, tells the action-packed story of six different women who are startled when they are faced with another version of themselves. To drive this story, the film is accompanied by an orchestral score of Blondie’s hit song “One Way or Another” as we follow each of these women chasing their alternate selves. In doing this, the lyrics of the song are turned into a powerful statement sung by each woman as they engage in their chase. The film ends with a call to action: “Find spring fashion. Find the remarkable you.”
Nicolai Fuglsig of MJZ directed the commercial which is titled “The Chase.”
