Those we have lost.

by Andrew MacGregor


Club de Creativos: “Couples” - 1 min 46s

Husbands, wives, and significant others bemoan their partners’ choice of career in this droll ad for Spanish advertising union Club de Creativos. Having been left in the lurch once too often, the cast leap at the chance to savage radio silence, talking shop, and umpteen late nights.

This first-world tragedy unfolds with wry sincerity, as we hear of cancelled movie nights, an evening spent with a partner’s colleagues (“What a shitty night”) and sudden trips to Majorca on a four-day shoot. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.

Naturally, it’s the off-screen lot who earn the organisation’s sympathy, and they promise to provide support and camaraderie to those in the creative trenches. Good luck getting a compliment about your work at home, mind.
