Best Viral Video: Ray-Ban's "Ray-Bug"
Directors William Campbell and Will Johnson of Gentleman Scholar craft a new viral video for Ray-Ban's "Never Hide" campaign. Edited by Steve Prestemon of Whitehouse Post, the piece follows a young Russian couple on an adventure into an abandoned house where they stumble upon a bug metamorphosing into a very unusual creature--one that molts distinctive sunglass lenses.
