The wonderful British Gas ‘Planet Home’ advert directed by Guilherme Marcondes is great. It is lovingly crafted and makes me forget that British Gas are not a bunch of money grabbing bastards by selling me their rapidly dwindling supply of natural gas but in fact very very nice people – so nice infact they are putting wind farms on other planets and abusing those instead – hurrah.
What struck me though was just how the ad resembled a certain italian plumbers adventures in the utterly brilliant ‘Super Mario Galaxy’. Probably a total coincidence but it was quite interesting to think there was some influence there. Check the pics.
