Director Martin Krejci, W+K Amsterdam "Get In The Game" For Booking.com
This spot titled “Get In The Game”--directed by Martin Krejci of Stink for Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam--kicks off the next chapter of the “Passions” campaign for Booking.com.
The :60 captures the passion of those who travel to support and experience their favorite sport. With upcoming major sports events in France and Rio de Janeiro, this summer will see numerous fans and would-be athletes watching their heroes from afar. But with the right hotel room or accommodation, these sports enthusiasts can be in the thick of the soccer, surfing, cycling and running action, getting closer to their dreams than ever before. In this commercial we see various folks who have landed the right room and are living their sports dreams up close and personal--one who gets quite close as he finds himself in an elevator with legendary soccer star Thierry Henry who is Booking.com’s ambassador for the 2016 Summer of Sports.
This spot and the overall campaign rolled out today in the U.K., Brazil, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland and Sweden. In the coming months, the work will debut in Australia and Canada.
