Ridley Scott Adverts

Perhaps Ridley Scott’s most famous commercial is the 1984 one for Apple.

Or maybe it’s the Hovis one.

It’s probably not this one for Guinness, presumably before you could get it on draught.

But I think this one for Pepsi is the most Ridley Scott looking advert he ever did.

This one, made for a Super Bowl spot, was pulled by Nissan itself after one airing.

I like the punchline on this one for Benson & Hedges.

There is more than a bit of Blade Runner in the 1980 one for Barclays. I wonder if he was testing looks and design for the movie.
