What do Rodin's The Thinker, Forrest Gump, Mad Men, The Creation of Adam, Reservoir Dogs and Daft Punk have in common? This wonderful clip:
In their advertisement titled "Icons," British newspaper The Sunday Times stitched together six iconic scenes from art and modern culture into one fluid sequence.
From the website:
The Sunday Times 'ICONS' - This is all about those iconic cultural images that we pin to our walls and stick in our minds. We all have our favourites. Heisenberg, Kraftwerk, and Banksy’s kissing coppers all featured in early scripts, but we wanted to take a snapshot of what’s making the headlines in 2014. Daft Punk winning big at the Grammy's, The final series of Mad Men, and Tarantino are all over the media right now. These people and their work have left an indelible mark and we’ll probably still be talking about them in ten, twenty maybe even a hundred years years time. The TV spot is a respectful nod to it all.
Icons is directed by ad agency Grey.
The Making Of video is equally fantastic:
