Energy BBDO, Director Fredrik Bond Create A "World of Play" For LG
Jason Statham’s surreal world of play is front and center in this launch spot for LG Mobile’s “Life’s Good When You Play More” integrated campaign out of Energy BBDO.
Directed by Fredrik Bond of MJZ, the commercial, titled “World of Play,” has Statham portraying himself as well as a number of other characters ranging from a baby engrossed in an umbrella sword fight to a long haired Statham surfing on a herd of bulls. Throughout the story, the LG G5 is positioned as a catalyst for play, and the smartphone’s plug and play accessories keep the fun going in this overtly unexpected and fantastical world.
The film aims to appeal to “Life Explorer” Millennials who crave ways to break up the mundane, encouraging them to discover their own world of play through the new LG G5 and its suite of plug ‘n play Friends. The film will appear worldwide in key markets including North America, Latin America, Europe and East Asia.
