    It’s kind of kitschy and I kind of love it.

  • jank

    My god how unsexy is Raquel. It was like watching an elephant trying to dance. The girl can’t move…

    • Guest

      Like Karen can…

    • anonymous

      I think it’s hilarious how serious Raquel is trying to be while dancing.  And yes, Guest, Karen isn’t that much better, but at least she looks so cute whenever she laughs or smiles- you can tell she has fun with it.

      Contrary to popular belief, they are models not ballerinas. ;) They need to know how to make shots look unforgettable, not how to dance and they are doing their job amazingly.

      This is in reply to http://streetfashionsydney.blogspot.com/2011/08/fall-of-rome-fashion-follows-it-didnt.html
      Sometimes the idea can’t be realized with using a still camera. The whole point of this campaign is to capture an odd, funny, and natural moment. With stills it would feel forced in this type of shoot. The video is fun and to keep the same mood stills were pulled. Don’t get too wrapped up on the technical things and just feel the picture. 
        And yes sometimes there isn’t an unlimited budget so you have to find the best solution to the problem. Look at this season’s campaigns. Are any of them really memorable? At least we’re talking about this one, so I guess it succeeded.

        Thanks for that Guest, sounds like you were part of the team. Reason I comment is that the images do not create the required ‘suspension of belief’ that you are asking for from the audience. And while I am sure a large audience will ‘love love love’ the campaigne; I doubt many will be part of your desired demographic. This is the kind of lost thinking I am talking about on my blog over here, http://streetfashionsydney.blogspot.com/2011/08/fall-of-rome-fashion-follows-it-didnt.html and not doing it anonymously!

    The dancing’s not so good, and that’s what makes it so great, esp everything else’s all so fab.

  • Priya

    Fun! I think its supposed to look like those WII dancing games…we are the tv and that is why they look slightly uncomfortable and serious, they are just trying to follow the moves. I love Albert at the end just pushing the guys aside like a little brother wanting to take over!

    AMAZING.  brilliantly done and so fabulously tongue in cheek.  Seems the creative director’s vision was a success.  To see so many people comment on this whether you think it’s good or bad EVERYONE is talking about it.

    I think this is Brilliant.
